Kiwano seed giveaway!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys found this weird ass fruit in my backyard a while ago and it is growing in abundance. Dried out the first few fruit for seeds. If any interested parties I have 5 or 6 lots to give away :)

They are delicious. They taste like a zesty, lemony cucumber with a hint of tomato. Would be the bom-diggity in a salad! :P Known as Kiwano or African Cucumber.

If keen, first in best dressed will get these. Dont fret if you miss out there are more on the way.

Also I will accept any other interesting and weird or trippy looking fruit seeds or veg as a donation :) this is optional though!

Cheers!

I just got some Annona glabra seeds ("Pond Apple") if you'd like to exchange unusual fruit, be careful though as it's an invasive species in parts of the country.

I would very much like to grow these if I can have some seeds please! I can send you a couple of my trich hybrid seeds if you'd like, but I don't have any interesting fruit seeds to offer you. :(

Unless you don't think these will grow in SA's Mediterranean climate? I'd like to try though...

That's pretty cool that you just "found" those growing in your backyard! I remember trying one years ago and not being super impressed. I just saw some at the grocery store the other day and considered trying it again till I noticed they were selling them at $4 a pop.
