HAVE: Fuchsia boliviana Alba berries

Maybe this is a strange place to post this, but there is no exchange section on the Fuchsia forum. As Fuchsias go, Fuchsia boliviana Alba is "Brugmansia-like" in terms of growth habit and size. It has large leaves and can become a small tree. It can also bloom in a 4 inch pot.

My plant is making berries full of seeds. I assume the seeds are viable, although I've only recently planted some. I can send a berry, possibly two depending on supply, for postage to anyone who is interested. Please email me directly.

Each berry has about a couple hundred seeds, I think. They are roughly 3/4 of an inch long.

Here's what my fairly small plant looks like in bloom. It is basically a zone 10 plant, which prefers cool summers, but I'm told can tolerate heat.
