Seeds I have to trade:

  • Note: I am not a speedy answerer of emails nor sending seeds--sometimes because the seeds are not available at that time or because I do not have access to internet or because I am busy or because I am lazy. On that note, if you are interested, these are the following that I have available:
  • Commercial package: I have a small amount that I can share. These are from 2013 packaging.
  • asparagus beans, yard long
  • morning glory, heavenly blue
  • tomato yellow pear, heirloom indeterminate
  • Non commercial package, open-pollinated, from my yard:
  • super chili, hot pepper: short plant with upright fruits--so far the only one not "attacked" by the birds around here. Very prolific, can be easily pot-grown.
  • kefir lime: Subject to availability from tree. Best way to germinate is to soak, then "peel" the outer skin, then plant.
  • variegated calamondin: Tree is still small but fruiting off and on. Same method of germination as above. No guarantee on variegation with seedlings as this tree appears two toned--a few branches are sporting just plain green leaves. Again, subject to availability.
  • Persimmon: Unknown name. Received as a "gift" from a friend from Shri Lanka. All my trees were grown from the first set of seedlings from his tree. Size of fruit subject to amount of nutrition and care. Can get as big as a large man's fist. Decent taste but am not a fan of persimmon. Just really like all the beautiful orange flowers. Can be grown as big bush or small to medium tree.


Seeds I am looking for:

  • I would really like to grow (or at least try to) a wisteria. Preferably the blue-purplish type. I would only need one or two seeds--just in case one doesn't germinate. Would just like one tree.


Plants I have to trade:

  • I live on Oahu, in the State of Hawaii. It would be hard to trade plants unless it is with someone that lives here--even outer islands would be hard...BUT, here's what I have now but may not have for long as I tend to give away plants:
  • parsley: in 3 1/2 to 4 inch pots.
  • basil, sweet: 3 gallon pots.
  • *taro: I have two types but for the life of me, I am not sure of names. One is the leaf-eating type that is a nice deep green. The other has a lighter color leaf and makes a larger corm.--I guess the corm eating type. * Both of these are subject to availability as I only transplant when there are enough "keikis" (babies--off shoots) and the pots are crowded.
  • malabar spinach, green: In ground. Am getting ready to pull up...
  • Please note: I do like to have my pots back as after a while, they do get expensive.


Plants I am looking for:

  • Onion varieties. Especially the types of old fashioned heirloom onions that are not big globular ones. I am looking for the onions that appear to "split" under the outer skin. I think some type is grown in Philippines and exported to S.E. Asia...It is red, the size of the "common" yellow onions as sold in stores but when you pull back the outer skins, the onion has "split" into 3 lobes. These are not shallots nor potato types of onion.***Thanks for reading this, I know it was long winded.***
