    Hello, I am interested in growing some jojoba on my property in Arizona. I am curious where your seeds are harvested and how soon you would be able to ship them.

      Hi Barney,
      We ship seeds on an ongoing basis as quickly as possible after you order them. Our seeds are from Southern California. Richo

      Hello Elize, Yes, new crop just came in on this, so now would be a good time to get the seeds. Nobody can determine the sex of a seed without DNA testing, which would render it nonfertile. We generally trust to nature to make the seeds about 50% male and 50% female, so a packet should contain both sexes. That is my experience with these. We do ship to South Africa yet we cannot guarantee shipments to South Africa. We can provide tracking but cannot be responsible for the actions of customs in South Africa. Therefore we encourage you to find the seeds locally or if you do purchase from us, keep your fingers crossed, they may or may not make it. Richo
