Latua pubiflora - "Tree of Wizards"/"Socerers Tree"

Recommended Posts

@MountainGoat I’ll admit it was a lazy seed purchase. Searched ebay, hit buy it now, boom! they’re coming.

I’ll order some from chileflora as a back up plan. I’ll also read up on those other species mentioned. Thanks

please do... the calafate is an amazing berry from patagonia, and the jubaea is a HUGE palm with tiny edible coconuts... highly recommend both. I'd line up and buy some berries and cocos from you if you get them going (i'm too far north to grow them)....

Ok, so who bought up all the latua pubiflora seeds from chile flora? It says they are out of stock, coincidence? Maybe. 
I demand you share some seeds with me! :)

Boo, they’d had stock when I grabbed the link... They restock every season, so it’s a great way to know their seeds are fresh. Their jubaea seeds sell out fast each year, it’s a protected species so there’s extremely limited seeds....

Boo indeed. Had stock yesterdee, checked this morning... gone! What a bummer. I spoke with a guy called Alberto this morning, the Chilean vendor on ebay, and requested he send my seeds in a plain non discript package. He’s also throwing in a bunch of extra seed for me. Eagerly waiting...

This Taswegian is hoping another has it:o I've hunted around a few greenthumb areas to no avail. 

 

There's a few jubaea down here MG (Phoenix seeds use to stock), I haven't come across one bearing c, nuts yet.
