~Bilimbi~

   

Averrhoa bilimbi

   

a.k.a. Cucumber Tree, Pickle Fruit, Belimbing

Family: Oxalidaceae

Cucumber Tree

   

The Bilimbi is cultivated in parts of southeast Asia, also in many other places in the Tropics. The     Bilimbi grows semi-wild throughout southeast Asia. A medium to large tree that may reach a height of 60 feet, but more commonly is 15 to 30 feet.

 Flowers bloom from the  trunk, often in great number toward the bottom of the tree. Fruits  follow, and a single Bilimbi tree     often produces hundreds and hundreds of fruits.

Delicate oval leaflets make the Bilimbi very useful as an indoor ornamental  that would require warmth and bright light. Pruned to size, Bilimbi makes an  interesting and unusual bonsai.

The Bilimbi mature fruits     resemble small cucumbers. Fruits of the Bilimbi have a crunchy but watery flesh, very     similar to the star fruit. Usually fruits are from 2 to 3 inches in length. They have a     smooth thin, green rind sometimes faintly five-angled, and an acid pulp in which are     imbedded several small seeds.

This Carambola  relative produces very small pickle-like fruits, although the flesh is much  more acidic. The Bilimbi has multi-lobed, oblong fruit with a pale green  waxy skin which are borne directly on the trunk of the tree and also on the  branches. The fruits are preceded by small red flowers on the trunk and  branches.

         The Bilimbi prefers a tropical environment, and     generally needs year-round water. Hardy to 32F. Generally not as cold hardy as the star     fruit. Keep humidity relatively high for good health.

As with the     Carambola, there is a sweet form of the Bilimbi, which lacks the acid taste. Fruits of the     Bilimbi are candied or cooked with sugar as a preserve. The most common use for the fruits     is a flavoring for prepared fish and meat dishes. Fruit pulp is also used to  make a refreshing beverage and preserves. They are quite acidic and     unlike the star fruit, so usually not eaten fresh out of hand.

    The Cucumber Tree leaves     are borne on leaflets often containing several dozen smaller leaf-pairs, which close     together at night. The odd-pinnately compound leaves are large, containing up to 45     leaflets. The oblong-pointed leaflets are 12 to 14 inches in length and have short     petioles.

 

All good things  take time, so I grow my plants and rare palms in  my  ebay store.

Much more to check out or just get a little  education on in my store.

  Payment hibiscus

We accept online  payments only through PayPal, Cash payments are only  acceptable for in-person payments and cash-on-delivery  (COD). Cash payment can not be sent through the mail.    

       Please only one Paypal payment. SO THE COMBINED SHIPPING  RULE WILL CAN BE USED. Late or Multiple PayPal payments are  NOT eligible for any discount.

We will ship once a  week - ON or BEFORE WEDNESDAYS, because of the special  stamps needed to ship plants and cuttings to you.  This  can only be done at the Dept. of Agriculture.  If  payments are not met before that MONDAY, your items will be  shipped the following week and lose the combined discount  opportunity. Non-paying bidders may receive negative  feedback and will be reported as an unpaid item to eBay.

COMBINED  SHIPPING POLICY

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING  is not included in this offer.         INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ON  LIVE PLANTS on a case by case basis.

We will combine shipping  for auctions won on the same week paid with same PayPal  payment.

This policy is good  for auction items bought and paid for in the week ending  MONDAY.

We ship on Tuesdays.

Payment must be  received within 4 days of the auction ending. 

Combined  Discounts Won Auctions

For 2-3 winning  auctions, the combined discount is 10% of the total Shipping  and Handling charges.

For 4-7 winning  auctions, the combined discount is 20% of the total Shipping  and Handling charges.

For 7+ winning  auctions, the combined discount is 30% of the total Shipping  and Handling charges.

As  each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay  the quoted S/H charges individually per item. If you buy the  same species in that item it does calculate out the discount  (i.e.: additional items)

My stores' combined  shipping is built in for same items rather than a varied  selection. Domestic S/H includes postage, USDA certification  and inspection, proper packing and delivery to Airport for  prompt delivery. I can't really change any of these. If you  want one of this and one of that, it is hard to discount  much as each different species requires it's own prep,  packing, then at USDA each has to be unwrapped and inspected  then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every  last piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on  the other side of the island. It takes my wife and I, 2-3  days to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day  we drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours),  then drive to the Airport Post Office to drop off. It takes  the same work with the same type item if you can understand.

Before you purchase After you Receive  your Items.

When you order a plant  we assume you are prepared to care for it. It is your  responsibility to know how to care for the plant. Do some  research before they arrive or seek experienced help.

 Small plants  need protection from many things, wind, sun, dry-out. They  do well just in the garage or living room. They need good  light but not sunlight (full sun will burn small plants).  Small pots dry-out easily. Just sitting in a shallow tray of  water works well. The idea is to keep the plants from  dehydrating.

 Be  careful if you decide to re-pot.  Re-potting voids any warranty. Plants are easily damaged  with new/different mix. Use NO fertilizers (this may kill  your plants). Proper care is critical upon arrival. Live Plants are NOT GUARANTEED  to survive under your care. DO NOT expect any live plant to  be GUARANTEED to remain alive. Plants are NOT GUARANTEED TO  SURVIVE after you begin Care! Live arrival is guaranteed,  eternal survival is up to you.

 IF YOU are NOT able to provide PROPER CARE, PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT  plant to be GUARANTEED after it perishes.

NO REPLACEMENT WILL BE CONSIDERED IF YOU HAVE REPOTTED THE PLANT.

Please Do NOT email me a week after potting your plant, and make a claim it arrived damaged. If you repot your plant after delivery, all warranties are voided and no replacement is offered. All  photos must be as arrived in original condition as received (in the box and packed as delivered).

If repotted, you are responsible for the condition of the plant. NO REPLACEMENT WILL BE CONSIDERED IF YOU HAVE REPOTTED THE PLANT.

Not every plant that I grow survives, and I am aware of that and accept the risk when I order. This is the risk that you as the buyer accept, because there is no way to know what kind  of conditions it will endure in the trip to your door. My responsibility ends when a live plant is delivered to your door.

You are agreeing to these terms when you make this purchase from this listing.


LIVE PLANTS ARE PERISHABLE.

There is the risk when you grow plants that they may die.  LIVE PLANTS are PERISHABLE, guaranteed not to live forever.


US orders ONLY are GUARANTEED for LIVE ARRIVAL . All International orders are shipped at the BUYER's  RISK!

From delivery confirmation, you have only 48 hours from delivery confirmation to make any claim.

All claims need to be supported with Photos of the damaged plant(s) as packed/unpacked, the box if damaged, the packing materials and any documents.

I am very reasonable and understanding, anything can happen to small plants in transit, for this reason uninsurable.

The expense to send it to you is most of your payment. To send any replacements, I try to piggy back with your next order.

Replacement is not an option for CUSTOMS SEIZURE.

ALL OF MY ITEMS ARE SHIPPED USDA CERTIFIED WITHIN THE U.S. - USDA and USPS fees  are included in the actual cost of shipping and Handling.

Please do not leave a 1 or 2 in my detailed seller ratings for postage fees or any  reason really because I will block you from any further purchases.
 
Please contact me before eBay if you have any issue. I am the one  who can help you. Do not open any case for any reason really because I will block you from any further purchases.

Rare Seeds

Fresh Highest  Quality

Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity  advertised. Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or  damaged during shipment will be replaced at seller's  expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All  other replacements, refunds, returns and exchanges will be  made at the sole discretion of the seller.

  Seed is a live product which depends on many important related  grower skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, type  of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers, weed  controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and  reasonable weather conditions during the growing period.  Germination is affected by such factors as temperature,  moisture content, light intensity and contamination of  planting media. These factors are totally out of the  seller's control and are the buyer's responsibility and  risk. Consequentially, the seller cannot unconditionally  guarantee seed to perform properly regardless of conditions  or the buyer's methods or mistakes.
