Tindora xuttings and roots.(donda) 2012

March 19, 2012

Tindora cuttings, roots 2012.

I dig them and keep them in my living room with adequate warm temp, sun light. and with out Excessive moisture throughout winter

Last year I sent to at least 20 plus people, free, shipping is theirs for priority mail medium size box. The plants and my efforts packing etc are free...

I do not have any in good numbers to share with others. Now.

I may have some in Jul/ august period.


I assume people who received them form last 5 years will come forward to share them with others.

But it is not happening.

It is some work for me, a thankless job and I am getting tired of it.

This is a free service with instructions etc only to those with whom I talked with.It is not an internet service or a business. And I do not belong to the IT generation. /and I hate to type.

You can not find time or too busy-"Have a good day- adios."

    I have been reading your updates Eswar.
    Thanks for being so patient. This is my second year gardening.
    My lil girl loves Tindora and a generous neighbor has donated three roots. I have safe guarded them through the winter and hv recently only moved the pots outside. Am waiting for 80+ temps to put them into the ground.
    Praying for a good tindora summers to come.

    That reminds of a story. There was a village in olden days. In that village there were 10 lepers that were thrown out of the village because of their disease. There was a saint that cam to that village. He was known for his kind miracles. seeing him all of the 10 lepers pleaded him to help them get healed. He took pity on them and healed them all. They were all very happy to see their glowing skins without any traces of disease. So they all ran into the village to let their relatives and families know about it. But while running one of them thought about that saint for a moment so he ran back in the opposite direction to find the saint. After he found him he fell at his feet and thanked him.

    I hope in your service and dedication there will be at least one person to be your follower in doing that service in turn. Waitng hurts some times, but it is worth it when you see the result. But I really appreciate your kind service. I was one of the person that was supposed to call you for a cutting, but I had an India trip and thought I can get one from there. Unfortunately, the cuttings I got from there did not survive. But that gave me a thought how much efforts that you put in Planting that many cuttings just to pass them on to some one just for free! Easwar garu that is really very nice of you.

    Hello Portland patil,
    This is my first time with Tindora in my yard and will look forward to saving cuttings in the fall.
    I just shared my cutting with another Neighbor few days ago.
    (and the rabbit happily nibbled it).Surprisingly, Tindora roots were available in our local grocer this year...for 8.99.

    Happy Gardening.

    can I have some cuttings too?

  • greenthumbsj

    I eat a lot of tindora - at first, I thought it was a variety of parbal. I love tindora. So does my wife and my daughter who is 8 and soon we will introduce it to our 15 month old son. I would love to get a tindora cutting/roots and I will be sure to share it to anybody who sends me pre-stamped priority-mail boxes. I have done similar thing for other things I grow - guava/mango/holy basil etc mostly.

    If you can send me a cutting or a root, I will send you a pre-stamped priority mail box.

    thank you

    I live in NJ. I've propagated a Tindora plant from a woody cutting/root. It's about 1 ft. long and has thickness of a pencil. Small leaves are emerging from two of the three nodes. I can trade it for a curry leaf plant locally. If someone is interested, please send me an email. Thanks.

    P.S. Local pick up only please.

    I realize this is an old posting but I am hoping that someone here will be willing to share some Tindora cuttings with me. I am in central Texas. I am willing to purchase, send postage, or trade. I have lots of things to trade. Curry leaf trees, tamarind tree, dragon fruit cuttings, passion vine, and lots more.

    If anyone can point me in the direction to purchase cuttings, I would be grateful for the information.
