I am looking for chaya seeds.Cuttings would probably work, also;they are so hardy,a little trip via UPS probably wouldn't hurt. Anyone w/ any to spare,sell,or trade, please let me know. We discovered chaya while traveling in Mexico & find it difficult to believe it is not to be found here in South Texas!

Does anyone know if these are self pollinating? I have a small Chaya that's about to bloom and was wondering if I'd be able to get any viable seed.

I suggest you plant the seeds and wait to see if they germinate. That is what I plan to do with mine.

I have some CHAYA (Cnidoscolus chayamansa) PLANTS, they have beautiful white flowers. I have many family members and friends with diabetes, Since I have a huge backyard, I decided to grow many plants (about 15).

I mostly grow medicinal plants, this chaya is one of the most promising.

I have some relatives that are healthy and they love making chaya drink. Every time I visit I bring a bag of leaves.
