Citrus General Discussion / Thoughts on this citrus
« on: January 27, 2021, 09:04:42 PM »
I found these growing basically in a wooded area where nobody would have been taking care of the tree. It is more of a sprawling large bush than an actual tree. Not a large trunk going mostly upward but many long side branches arching off the main trunk lower to the ground. They are a very vivid burnt orange color as opposed to a standard orange. Don't know that the pics really show the color accurately. You can see the lemon like nipple on the fruits. They are basically lemon flavored and not limey really. However they are not wickedly sour like most lemons are. It's definitely sour and not sweet but a very tolerable level of sour. If your into sour I could see someone actually eating these out of hand enjoyably. What do y'all think of them? Are they just an odd lemon? Furthermore picked many of them and could definitely trade/sell or giveaway seeds to anyone interested.

Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / WTB Apple scions for FL panhandle
« on: January 18, 2021, 07:16:56 AM »
Looking for a handful of scions of any types of apples that might do well here in the FL panhandle. Varieties such as Joy, Anna, golden dorsett, etc. Figure any varieties that have 500 hours or less of chill requirements might do OK here. Please let me know what you got! Probably would need to get the scions in February to attempt grafting before the trees fully wake.

Thanks! DG

Last year sometime I had collaborated with a member here and got some of these seeds from the UK. I did get a few sprouts but I had damping off and caterpillar issues and lost all the seedlings. I'd really like to get ahold of these again. Wondering how the other member did with their seeds? Can't remember who they were though. If you see this let me know. I'd totally buy a plant off you!

Thanks!

Have bunches of sugarcanes a friend gave me. Way too many to plant it all. Said ot was red Malaysian but it's also called FL or LA red. More than happy to trade or send some for postage covered if anyone wants some cuttings.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Longan and cherimoya seeds
« on: November 08, 2020, 04:55:00 PM »
Have a good handful of seeds of both cherimoya and longan fruit trees. Around 20 of each. Not sure I want to attempt to sprout them so close to winter with limited space to protect them. Feels wrong to toss good seeds so figured I'd offer them up for free if anyone will pay their shipping. If you wanna offer something as trade that's fine too but otherwise they are free to take for only shipping cost. If proposing trade I'm looking for zone 8 hardy species from fruits to perennial veggies/herbs.

Thanks! DG

« on: September 01, 2020, 07:25:57 AM »
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.

Thanks!

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

22
Selling the smaller tubers at 5 for $1. Minimum order of $3 or 15 tubers plus shipping. Ships USPS first class package usually for under $5 cost to most places domestic. 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.

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!
