Default Looking for Aussies to trade

Hi everybody, new member on this site.

I collect and hold a range of rare and hard to get species and cultivars of fruiting plants. 99% of these are tropical/subtropical, including garcinias and eugenias from all over the world but mostly Brazil.

I'm looking for fellow to aussies to trade or banana pups/bulbs. My collection of bananas is very limited; I have dwarf ducasse, blue java, red dacca, and dwarf cavendish.

Looking to procure other rare or more hard to get banana types. I do not sell plants, and will only trade for what I have. I will of course buy pups if that's what needs to happen.

cheers

Starling --- tell me about your Eugenia candolleana, the rain forest plumb. I have 2 seedlings grown from volunteers. Heard the fruit is great, and also the trees will get massive if not controlled.

Also heard the wallaby populations have exploded up in north areas such as Victoria River District, the Douglas-Daly and Adelaide River. What's being done about it?

G'day bananimal,

Good to see a familiar face

Thought I'd branch out (no pun intended) from the tropical fruit forum.
Not sure what they're going to do about the Wallaby sitch, let's hope they don't jump the gun and begin culling them. Mike T would be the one to ask, that's his neck of the woods. Haven't spoken to him for a while, but will do soon as I have a package for him.


My candolleana are too small to fruit yet, it will be a few years at least before I can report. I've been told they're the best of the Eugenia, which I hope is true, because I'm pretty tired of Jaboticaba :/

Hi S --- Same for me Ė have to wait a few years for fruit. Got my RFPs from Oscar. Adam S. is responsible for stirring interest in Eugenias. He brought about 40 plants of all kinds to one of our lectures last year. Some quite rare! They all sold at our auction. Last month was his 4th visit at the Treasure Coast Rare Fruit club. He declared our group his favorite club due to interest and enthusiasm. Lots of crazy plant people. Jabotica is also a member and has snapped up several of Adamís plants. We are planning a group visit to Adams new nursery Flying Fox Fruits.

I canít fathom the enormity of dealing with runamuck wallabys. Already have my hands full with raccoon, opossum, squirrel and cotton rats. Will talk to Mike.

Welcome aboard. Lots of musa info on b.org. Dan
