    We are a non-profit organization of (mostly) amateur fruit growers. We do not sell seeds, or plants, or anything else. In any case, since you are in Peru and the jaboticoba comes originally from Brazil, I would think you could find what you are looking for more locally than California

      What is the age range for the meetings in OC? How old are your youngest attendees?

        I would address your question to the Orange County chapters. You can find their links under Chapters.

I learned about your organization from one of IV Organics videos on YouTube. I love gardening and I am in the process turning my home garden into a urban fruit forest. Trying to learn as much as I can about tropical and exotic plantsand fruit trees as well as to build acollection for my garden.

I wish I had been at the passion fruit talk as I need some advice.
I have a 5 year old passion fruit vine that has produced amazing flowers the last three years but never fruits. It gets sun all day long, has good drainage and I have even hand pollinated some to no avail. I have another vine about twenty feet away that produces large amounts of fruit.

    Bryan, I am no expert but some passiflora varieties are grown more for their flowers than their fruit. Your shy bearer — with its amazing flowers — might be one of those.

interested in plant sales and meetings and house shows

    Ronni Kern · November 18, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    You should find your local chapter on the Chapters page. All plant sales, field trips, etc are run by them.

I have a Sumo citrus tree that I started from a seed about 4-5 years. ago, it is in a pot and is about 4 feet tall. I want to give it to someone who will appreciate it and care for it. I went thru about 50lbs. of fruit to obtain a seed. You can’t buy a tree in this state, and I understand it will produce fruit that is true to the original. I am 75 yrs. old and don’t anticipate seeing actual fruit from it in my lifetime so I want to give it away to a good home, it will need to be moved by a small truck or on its side in a suv. I live in Sacramento County. Phone@ 916-395-9545 (land line)

About 15 years ago I had Norm Beard find amone other things a Nabal avocado for me. Earlier I tried contact him to see if he would like some of those avocados just to thank him. Seem I cannot find out where he lives since I understand his place has been sold. Is anyone here still in contact with him and could I also do so?
