WTB: Florida Avocado Seeds
« on: August 05, 2018, 01:39:04 PM »
I am looking for large seeds from large vigorous Florida avocado cultivars (Lula, Waldin, Simmonds, Monroe, Choquette, etc., basically anything vigorous in FL that make vigorous seedlings). I find them to be vigorous rootstocks that handle the AZ heat.

If you have any you could sell me I would appreciate it!

Yep, Florida pits make for a great rootstock, much better than Reed, Sir Prize, etc.  Oro Negro makes a good one too.  Watch your local grocery stores.
