Hi to all,

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum but I couldnt find anything that looked like a seed exchange, so here it is: I have a quantity of Leucaena leucocephala seeds aka "Guaje" in Mexico, a hot weather, dry climate
leguminous tree/bush that all classes of livestock will eat. I have the pods drying at the moment, and it travels better apart from the pod,  Id trade in either 20 seed or 100 seed units.  I am looking to trade some for some various tree/bush seeds. In particular I am seeking

Mesquites 100 seeds
Honey Locust which come from THORNY varieties
Jujube seeds (not from dried packs please) 100 would be nice
Hawthorn berry seeds (not from dried packs please) 100 would be nice
Firethorn
Blackthorn
Barberry
Trifoliate orange
Elephant Grass seed
Surprise me with something I didnt know I needed.
These are for Zone 8a/8b with 50 inches of rainfall annually

Remember Leucaena is also a nitrogen fixer, and although a zone 10 plant at least, in warmer climates can come back after a frost, or might be covered in Winter.   USA trades only to simplify things. Many thanks, Mike

if you/your location likes leucaena then you will also like:

gliricidia sepium
false pepper (schonus molle - spelling from memory)
moringa

i havent got any of the above to trade but i have got at least a billion leucaena seeds if anyone in spain wants any for the cost of postage

Very encouraging Matt, I appreciate that video so much. I can't wait to plant an experimental patch.  I don't know what variety this is that I have, I got it at a Mexican market. Is there any way to diagnose its variety?



Best, Mike

I have seen that there is a council on this tree,   I would find and contact them with this question, I ordered mine long ago and I am getting several starts where the seeds have fallen.


 
Farmers know to never drive a tractor near a honey locust tree. But a tiny ad is okay:
