I still have 2021-collected seeds left but am de-listing them, as they need a chilling period and it is getting late to do that outdoors. If you are interested in them and accept that they will require an artificial chilling period, please send me a message through my Contact page and I can relist the seeds for you.
Collected in early to mid October 2021. At least 15 seeds.
Please read the germination information as well before ordering.
