Rare Sunkist Navel Orange Seeds
« on: February 28, 2019, 12:23:56 AM »
Original Sunkist Navel Orange Heritage Seeds. 25 seeds per bundle. $1200

Note: Extremely rare. Navel oranges do not normally produce seeds, hence the name.  These have been harvested from the last vestiges of a remnant Sunkist grove here in Corona, California.

Are you serious? $1200??? Navels will produce a seed or two if grown together with other citrus. I get a few seeds every year from my navel oranges.

View the price of seeds I wonder at what price you do the scion?
Serious is reasonable, even the horticultural Society (INRA) does not sell at this price their seeds.

If it is an old abandoned orchard the best is to offer scions with a normal price.
You will have more luck
1) to have requests.
2) to save and transmit the citrus varieties or the orange variety of this orchard.
