Anyone have this tree growing? Would love some seeds or seedlings. Figure getting enough sap in the FL panhandle is not likely but it'd be totally awesome to grow some of these out and see what happens.

Made it easier than writing it all out lol. Tools pics from my wife's hand written recipe. If it isn't clear let me know.

Anyone out there have this available? Got some seeds last year but I think they got too hot in my mailbox. Seeds looked good but after stratification planted them and didn't get any sprouts. Would like another go at these guys.

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

Will send international which will likely be up to $15. Will calculate shipping for each individual depending on their location. Always up to trade as well.


Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Possible litchi tomato?
« on: January 06, 2020, 01:55:24 PM »
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.


If anyone is interested in spiritual healing plants I have many available through the year. All listed here are legal so long as you only grow them for novelty or species preservation.

Available now:

Psychotria nexus leaf cuttings
Psychotria viridis leaf cuttings
P. alba/carthagenensis leaf cuttings
Banisteriopsis caapi unrooted cuttings several types
B. muricata unrooted cuttings
Trichocereus cactus seedlings many types
Kratom tree cuttings two types

Cuttings may or may not be tip cuttings which doesn't seem to effect rooting efficacy. Inquire via PM.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Key lime seeds
« on: October 29, 2019, 08:45:02 AM »

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

Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / Black cherry and other wild cherry
« on: August 08, 2019, 11:14:09 AM »
Anyone have wild cherry growing? Wouldn't mind getting some seeds or seedlings from black cherry or pin cherry. Maybe even choke cherry. Will trade/pay shipping or whatever.

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

Many well established malabar spinach plants in 4" pots ready to grow and start vining. Red and green types available. $4 each or multiples at $3 each plus shipping. Inquire via PM.
