Could you please let us know of any local (Southern California) growers or nurserys that might sell, or be able to obtain the Thai Mango: Keo Savoy. We know we can find them in Florida but the shipping is very expensive. We would appreciate you help very much. Kanda and Dennis in San Fernando Valley. (818) 645-8852.
Thank you so much for any information or ideas. My wife and I may consider joining your organization.

    Ronni Kern · June 21, 2017 at 3:04 am

    Alex, a friend at Tropical Mango Nursery in Phoenix, suggests that you “Should try Mimosa Nursery (323) 722-4543 they just got a big order from pine island nursery and I have seen keo savoy there in the past. Best person to talk to is Tom. “

      Kanda and Dennis · June 22, 2017 at 10:35 pm

      Thank you so much for the information. This particular Nursery said that they are out of this type of Mango Tree. They may get some in at the end of summer.
      Kanda and I sure appreciate the feed back that we are receiving on this matter. I guess that we will just have to wait for the proper season and then try again. Thanks again. Dennis and Kanda

        Ronni Kern · June 23, 2017 at 12:22 am

        You should consider joining your local CRFG chapter. If you already have mango trees, you might find a member who could provide you with scion wood of your desired variety.

Chuyen Nguyen · August 24, 2017 at 4:30 am

Do you know of any local Los Angeles growers or nurseries that might sell, or be able to obtain the following avocado trees: GEM, Gwen, Rincon, and Sir Prize? Thank you so much for your help.

Ellen Maisen · October 22, 2017 at 11:09 pm

Hey Chuyen Ngyuyen: Good news! Mauricio from Persea Tree Nursery in Fallbrook gave me permission to give out his phone number for GEM avocado trees. 951-440-1237. Please consider his nursery for Reed, GEM, Ettinger ( B cultivar), Hass and I know he has others but check with him for availability. We are very fortunate to have him here providing us with trees. He is a local alternative to Brokaw nursery up in Ventura county. they may be closer to you, depends on where you are, but they have a minimum order of 20 trees.
Mauricio is local to San Diego county growers and close enough to Los Angeles to be worth a trip down here. He brings knowledge from working in California and in other countries where avocados are grown commercially with farmers and scientists. I am a small farmer here in Valley Center and I can visit Mauricio’s high density grove and pick up trees . Very nice for us to have him here!

Great! Loved it!

Mike · July 14, 2019 at 11:15 am

Can anyone recommend a source in San Diego, CA where I can purchase a Babaco Papaya Vasconcellea X heiborni or other papaya with some cold tolerance.

    Bill Grimes · July 14, 2019 at 11:29 am


    Since I live in No. Cal. I don’t have a name handy but suggest that you check with our San Diego or North San Diego chapters ( or ) for their suggestions.

    Ellen Maisen · July 14, 2019 at 12:23 pm

    I was just up at Cal Poly Pomona and I only glanced at the Papayas because I have decided not to grow them but they have a number of varieties there, some with cold tolerance when I last looked at them carefully. Don’t know if the one you were after is among them, give a call 909-869-4906. They are also having a special plant sale August 17-18 for the Festival of Fruit.

Ellen Maisen · July 14, 2019 at 1:00 pm

Sorry I forgot about Exotica in Vista 760-724-9093. Papaya Tree nursery in Granada Hills has 6 varieties and Babacao, 818-363-3680, it’s in the San Fernando Valley past Los Angeles, Bonita Creek nursery might also have them. 619-422-2400

Maria · October 19, 2019 at 5:07 pm

I was wondering if anyone knows a nursery where I can find yellow passion fruit in Los Angeles area.

    Ronni Kern · October 20, 2019 at 10:31 am

    Maria, I would check with Jorge Ochoa who is the reigning passiflora expert in the area. He teaches at Long Beach City College and lectures regularly at LA area chapters. You could find out his schedule at
