Just found your blog and am happy to find someone who is as fascinated with Mandrakes as I am. I live in Northern California and grow m. Officinarum, m. Autumnalis and m. Turcomanicas. I have three ripening fruits from one of my Turcs this year and will have seeds to share in a few weeks if you are interested. The Turcomanicas are one of the rarer species of mandragora, but I have found they like our climate and they grow well for me. Happy growing!
