I am looking for trees, fruit or seeds. Does anyone have a supplier for this fruit tree?

No supplier, but an interesting tree! Male and female trees, so at least two needed. Check out this site...

Yes. They sell the seeds by the gram and since the seeds are large it looks like it would be about 5-10 dollars a seed + shipping. The smallest packet is 14 dollars US. Quite a gamble.

I ordered seeds from them back in 1979. I had one come up. I donated it to the Fruit and Spice Park in Homestead in the early 1980's.
They've had only one tree for years and have been getting fruits and seeds so I can't speak to their needing cross pollination &/or being either male or female.
Now if I can just get down there to donate 2 butter trees Bassia latifolia.
