Note:
We are not (formally) botanically-studied, and we learn as we go... Plant names are sometimes in local, spanish, english, or quichua languages... The plant names are different from place to place, even between Ecuador's provinces, so we don't give so much importance to them more than as a rough idea. We give much more importance to knowing the plant and the use, to knowing how it grows and where, and to concentrating especially on highly-nutritive fruits and superfoods that can provide sustainable life in the long term. Many trees are still too small and need more time to produce fruits, so don't expect the impossible. We are learning to be patient, as everything takes time. We have fruit trees and other plants from tropical countries worldwide (and it is getting wider). If you wish to bring or take some seeds or plants, let us know.

Collectors in Ecuador looking to trade or buy seeds/plants/cuttings are welcome to contact us for more information. Besides the species listed above that are obviously more rare/collectible, we also have (among other things) an unusual local strain of small red naranjilla, multiple "ají dulce" of uncertain origin, and our own selection of Cucurbita moschata from repeated natural crossings of 3 local pumpkins. All of our plants are open-pollinated, so some seedling variation can occur.
