I purchased a Papaya tree (small) from Florida Nursery Mart and had explained to the salesperson that this was my 3rd Papaya Tree have purchased from different nurseries and that none of them had given me fruit. The salesperson said to me that ALL of their Papaya trees were guaranteed to give fruit.
He said if it didn’t give fruit to return it and they would replace it. They only had two left and they only had a few leaves on them, but that it would eventually grow and gives us fruit. Well I purchased this tree on 11/11/16, planted it the same day. About two weeks ago I saw a couple of leaves turning brown and then falling off but I didn’t worry about it because I figured the new leaves would come out.
Today I noticed that it was on its death bed. I call Florida Nursery Mart just now and explained that a dead tree can’t possible give me fruit. I have never had a Papaya tree die on me, especially one that I was taking good care of. The girl on the phone tells me that they are only guaranteed for 14 days.
Seriously what tree dies in 14 days. I insisted that they had told me that the tree was guaranteed to give me fruit and she told me that she had spoken to the Manager and he basically said that there was nothing he could do for me. I noticed that they don’t even have the Papaya tree on their website. I will never buy from this company again, if you guaranteed something, you should uphold the guarantee.
It’s not the $21.00 that I paid for the tree, it’s the lying that upsets me. How can you trust a person that lies to your face?
