Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / Apple and pear scions for FL panhandle
« on: February 02, 2020, 09:17:40 AM »
I have two branches on an apple tree I want to attempt grafting onto here shortly before active growth begins in spring. Definitely want varieties that will do well here in the FL panhandle zone 8b-ish. I have a grafted Anna so good there provided it keeps living on. Wouldn't mind getting golden dorsett or joy to graft to the ready rootstock I have. Very, very open to other varieties for here too just make offers. Want to put a different type on each branch. Hoping for success with both obviously.

I also have a large unproductive pear tree. It was on the property before I lived there and have no idea what type it might be. Got like two pears last year off it...they are good and not grainy or anything. It probably needs a pollinator. Many areas could be grafted on it as it's rather large. Looking to put good types for the area on that tree too. Maybe varieties like keffier or pineapple would be good but please suggest others.

Also have tons of Chickasaw plum I can graft on. Any good improved types for here are welcome. I do know peach and nectarine can be grafted on that as well. Please make offers of varities for here. The Chickasaw plum in the yard is not bad at all and in fact is of good quality and fair size on its own if anyone wants to trade for suckers etc. Also have wild flat woods plum seedlings available for sale/trade too. Also lots of pre-stratified American persimmon seeds too.

Thanks! DG

Found this plant growing wild behind the building I work at. After trying to ID it I think it could be litchi tomato. Does this plant look like that to y'all?

Hello all!

I like wierd exotic stuff that is out of the ordinary. After doing lots of research I've stumbled upon many odd ball species but it seems you can always find more with enough diligence. I'm here to ask the community of knowledgeable fruit people what wierd zone 8 hardy fruits have you come to know? Trying to gather a list of all things that may grow well here in the Florida panhandle where some years may hit 15F. Want stuff that can handle here without winter help or very limited help. Open to anything really from perennial herbs, veggies, useful non fruit baring edible/medicinal trees/bushes, to fruit baring species. Obviously I'm a fruit guy too so that's the main interest but all is welcome here if it's useful and will grow well. In other relevant info the soil I have is thick and clay like. Not great drainage but manageable. Willing to adjust planting sites for species that need good drainage though. I do have areas of my land that can remain soggy and hold water for days at the least too so any plants that can handle flooding on occasion but then drying out potentially for periods too are much needed. Let me please hear your wealth of suggestions!

Thanks! DG

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Duncan white grapefruit
« on: December 26, 2019, 08:26:25 AM »
Florida members if you'd like some seeds from the heirloom white grapefruit known as "Duncan" For a white type they are very good and sweeter than other whites I've tried. Very similar flavor to a red grapefruit. Grows true from seeds and fruits in about 5 years if happy. Many local seed grown trees here in a good friends yard that have several generations of trees that are all nearly the same fruit quality. Cold hardy to zone 8! I have fresh seeds available for trade or sale. 10 seeds for $2.50 with minimum order of 20 seeds plus shipping.

Thanks!

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Looking for cold hardy avocado seeds
« on: September 12, 2019, 01:18:11 PM »
Wanting seeds of the most cold hardy avocado varieties such as fantastic etc. If can get some years nearly 15F here in winter though most years it only gets to the high 20s. However due to the possibility of extreme cold the most hardy would be best. Willing to pay or trade etc.

Thanks! DG

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Fresh star fruit seeds
« on: August 24, 2019, 04:34:01 PM »
Fresh star fruit seeds from my own seed grown trees in my father's yard in Sarasota, Florida. Original fruit was good so I planted seeds. 4 years later had 3 mature trees that all produce good fruits as good as parent tree. Feels good to offer these seeds to others having had once grown them from seed myself.

5 seeds for $1. Minimum order of 15 seeds plus shipping.

Thanks! DG

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Trifoliate orange
« on: July 25, 2019, 09:31:18 AM »
I grew a bunch of trifoliate orange seedlings. If I were to individually pot a bunch is there any interest for them here? Not sure exactly what cultivar but it was a bit contorted. Picked the fruits from a tree on a job site in Panama city, FL. Lady said the tree came from Israel and she knew it as an Israeli crown of thorns tree. However it is a trifoliate orange. Made for a cool looking tree though. Would probably be good graft stock too.

Anyone have rooted jujube cuttings or seedlings etc that would do well in the FL panhandle area? Always looking for other fruits or edible/medicinal plants for here too. Temps range down to 15F here on rare occasions though we rarely break 25F. Anything that can handle here  I'd consider but jujube is something I definitely want to add.

Thanks! DG

May I start by saying it can get as cold as 15f here where I am though very rare. This year it hasn't got colder than 30 but last year got 19 one night and was in the mid to low 20s for many many successive nights. Willing to try pushing things a bit but it's better when you know something can certainly handle the environment. I have thick not well draining clay like soil on my property in particular. Very wet winter seasons and also summer season sometimes.

What are your recommendations for not only types of fruits but cultivars of those as well? Have some cash to spend if anyone has things available to buy at a fair price. Do know about just fruits and exotics and I have gone there and bought stuff and plan to go back. However I like the idea of trading, bartering, and supporting personal people's efforts if I can. We all should be growing and exchanging various plants and even creating new varieties to pass around. I know many here do just that too. So what you recommend and or got!?!

Some interests(but open to anything hardy to area):

Cold hardy avocado
Pears
Citrus
Apples
Nut trees
Berry bushes
Stone fruits
Exotic temperate fruits
Kiwi
Grapes
Mulberries
Persimmons
Pomegranate
Mandarin melon berry tree
Pawpaw
Japanese raisin tree
Jujube
Any hardy passionfruit other than Maypop?
Medicinal or otherwise useful trees, shrubs, herbs
Perennial veggies

I'm not picky really open to anything fairly productive, hardy to area, can be neglected is always good, etc.

Thanks! DG

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Offering orange seeds to FL members
« on: February 09, 2019, 08:35:38 PM »
Have seeds from two different orange trees. My boss has trees on his land that have been growing there since about 120-130 years ago. Not necessarily the same trees but successive generations planted by seeds. His parents planted the originals in the very early 1900s. He's an old guy himself. He claims they come up more or less true from seed and are sweet and good. Said they are Valencia but I can tell there are two distinct types. First time I went to pick some today. Definitely aren't any graft marks on the oldest trees and there really is many from different generations. They are really good that is for sure. Sweet and juice worthy without sweetening. After seeing them in person I do believe him. Kumquats too from seed and are good as well as and a white grapefruit. He says they do take a long time to produce but they always turn out good just the same.

One type is a thinner skinned one and one is thicker skinned. Wanted to offer them since I juiced a ton and want not to toss all the seeds since I can see they really do end up good from seeds. If you pay shipping I'll send some to FL members. Definitely willing to trade for stuff too. I'm particularly looking for cold hardy edible nuts, fruits, perennial veggies and herbs, or annual heirloom veggies or herbs.

Thanks! DG

Want to add to my perennial hardy edible plants collection some edible types of day lily and tiger lily. Want known safe edible types as not all day lilies and tiger lilies are edible and or other plants called lilies.

Thanks! DG
