Please read the following carefully
before ordering any trees:
My services are primarily intended to help local farmers and tropical
rare fruit collectors. I am not a profit-minded plant factory and my
propagation/production efforts are limited.
All fruit tree prices on
the site are for the smallest available size. Many of the specimens
are in larger sizes. My trees are eco-organically grown. I am using
this new term now instead of “organic” because the term “organic”
has largely lost its original meaning. (If you are interested,
please read my article about “organic certification” on the
I work mostly with tropical fruits but since 2008 I am also offering a
limited amount of important bamboo species (sales are only local). In
addition to the fruit species listed on the site, there are always
several rare tropical species in the nursery that are not listed. If
you are looking for a particular tropical fruit/nut tree that you
can’t find on the site, you can always inquire about it.
For those of you who want to mail-order, I urge you to take special
care of your new trees, as bare-rooting and shipping is stressful for
them (some are more sensitive than others). I mainly offer this
service in case some trees are unavailable locally. If you want to
place an order, please contact me by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) before,
so that I can confirm the availability and size of the trees. All
trees are sent bare rooted, the roots are treated against nematodes
and wrapped in a humid, sterile medium.
Important: Once you receive the trees, please make sure that they stay
in the shade until they are strong enough to receive direct sun light;
plant them at first in a light but rich potting soil and keep them
moist. Many tropical seedlings require various degrees of shade for
the first year. Please do not hesitate to ask for further advice in case
you need it.
Once your order is
confirmed, you can write out a U.S. postal money order personal
check to Sadhu, send to POB 8132, Mayagüez 00681, Puerto Rico.
Plants can be shipped with USPS priority mail or express mail. Since
the express mail rate is only slightly higher than the priority mail
rate, I strongly recommend to use express mail. The postage depends
on the weight of the tree. In average, a box of 3-5 trees shipped
with priority mail costs around $32, express mail $39. There is a
minimum order of 3 trees (any amount less than that would make
I do not ship outside of Puerto Rico.
