Water Cherry Lilly Pilly Syzygium Australe Fresh Seeds
Packet of 10+ seeds still in the whole freshly picked fruit!
Also know by Eugenia australis, Eugenia myrtifolia, Eugenia simmondsiae, Jambosa australis, Jambosa myrtifolia, Jambosa thozetiana Myrtus australis and a heap of common names including Brush Cherry, Scrub Cherry, Creek lilly pilly, Creek satinash, and Watergum.
Awesome seasonal fruit that keeps producing for a couple months. Loves creeklines and rivers, but is still very drought hardy.
What you are buying is 10 freshly picked fully ripe fruit, most containing at least one large viable seed, some will have two, a couple will have none.
I will pick or collect the fruit, I will put the fruit in a labelled baggie, I will put the baggie in a bubble mailer, and send it out to you standard postage, within two days.
About ten days to two weeks from the date of payment the fruit will arrive at your place if you live in Australia, overseas folks it will take a few more weeks.
On arrival thoroughly wash and remove all the fruit flesh, and plant them in a nice well drained soil, water and wait. You may want to use a sterile medium or an antifungal to stop damping off issues. I don’t bother.
Why send it special?
Seed of this species older than six months, or seed that has had the fruit skin pierced or removed before longterm storage has a greatly reduced germination.
I will only send these difficult to store seeds like this, and they will only be available while the fruit is available. If I go out to pick your order and the bats or critters have eaten them all, then you will be refunded immediately.
You will not get fresher seeds anywhere, but due to sometimes difficult nature of the seeds, please look at germination as a gamble, and if you can not afford to not have success, then please choose an easier species.
When thoroughly washed, fresh seeds like this should have a near 100% strike rate but fungi and rotten fruit pieces left attached to the seeds can mean a ZERO% strike rate.
These guys are a gamble, if you can’t afford to play keep your $ in your pocket.
