I've been growing one since last year. Had to dig it up in autumn - if it survives the cold storing, I'm going to plant it outside again in spring and will try to overwinter it outside.

I doubt that it will survive here in southern Austria, since we have temperatures below freezing for most of the nights since November/December.  It is supposed to be less hardy than Musa Basjoo and Musa Sikkimensis, but it probably does well in regions with a milder winter and a shorter freezing period.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Prunus brigantina (alpine apricot)
« on: November 15, 2017, 06:58:37 AM »
Hello, has anyone grown Prunus brigantina (Brianšon apricot/marmot plum/alpine aprico)? It's the only apricot-like wild species native to Europe.
Is it worth growing it? What does it taste like? Is there much difference to a regular apricot tree (especially taste-wise)? Where to get seeds of it?

Would love to hear if someone has experience growing this tree.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wanted: Myrica rubra in Europe
« on: October 30, 2017, 05:19:55 AM »
Does anyone know european sources for Myrica rubra (Yumberry) plants. Grafted plants of some chinese cultivars would be of special interest; didnt find any sellers so far.

Bonus: are there any cultivars which are more frost tolerant than  others?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Wanted: Vasconcellea/Carica monoica

I'm looking for some seeds or plant of Vasconcellea monoica - wild mountain papaya. Or maybe someone knows where to get one? preferable from Europe since customs can often be a problem.
