Thanks for the info, keira. I do not have anything to trade it for, unfortunately. And the size is too big for shipping for me. I am actually looking to see if I can get some seeds to germinate them from.

dsstroyer,
If you knew someone who was in Florida and was willing to buy it and ship it, they have them at Excalibur in Lake Worth. You could also try growing it from seed.

ashleysf,
the seeds are available on eBay right now. I included a link

murahilin, thanks for the tip! Another question for you: I heard that there are male and female trees for Otaheite gooseberry. Is that so? If so, how do i ensure that i get one of each when i grow them from seeds?

ashleysf,
You'll be fine planting the seeds. This tree does not have male and female trees but instead each tree produce male, female, and hermaphrodite flowers.

Adrian/Ashley,

I have been looking for the Otaheite gooseberry seeds for a while now, but have not had any luck. Were you able to locate them? If so can you point me to the right direction?

Anne,
Govardhan Gardens list the seed for sale on its website. It says it is available Feb-July. I've provided a link. You should contact Sadhu and see if he happens to have any available right now.
