Thanks for the replies. I was asking about the OC order, but on second thought, I'm going to hold off on ordering the scions until my grafting skills improve. Good luck with your orders!  :)

This order was sent to Oscar with revisions, waiting on final shipping costs, then I will post here on how much each would owe.  Stay tuned. Hopefully it would be done deal.

Sorry, I'm afraid i can't afford 50 for 6 scions, 30 was reasonable. Anyways i rather go buy a 15 gallon cado 50 dollars.

FYI -

Due to lack of response from most who showed interest backing out or not responding, I have decided to cancel the order. I will refund the monies to those who sent me money already. With count of scions declined, cost per scions has gone up. I apologize about this but I dont have time to wait around while all I was trying to do was facilitate the order.  If folks are still interested, please coordinate among yourselves and run the order.

Thanks

Behl,
Thanks for spending your time to get this together. Disappointed that so many backed out.
Maybe someone here has the various Hawaiian avocado/fruit varieties that will be willing to give or sell seeds/scions locally?

I am sure folks here do. I am going to try to get few from CRFG Orange County and otherwise we can do another order sometime in the future.

Main reason we backed up due to ridiculous prices. Thanks for the effort though.

I have a small sharwil i can give you some scions in the future. Right now its just pushing a lot of flowers and lost most of the leaves. Maybe i should pinch off the flowers and let it grow some woods.

Some people enjoy growing and eating fruit much more than packing and shipping things. Charging a little for scions is a way to weed out those that are casually wanting them from those that are really serious. It really takes more effort to do the same old thing year after year.

I know you meant the ag inspection and shipping costs are ridiculous. Cost of shipping stuff to HI is nuts too.

On the bright side, I might have more people in the group order when I'm ready to order from Oscar in the future.

Yeah Sharwil you can get locally instead of bothering Oscar for it. Mine failed after something fell on top of the grafted seedling. :(

You can get whatever you want just let me know two weeks before the meeting and we'll have it for you.

Behl,

Sorry, I never kept up on this thread and didn't know we were to send the money; I thought you would send me the cost and paypal address via PM. 

Sad to see this cancelled.   :'(

Appreciate all your efforts bud.

For the record $8 a scion shipped and done legally is a pretty good deal.. Even here in Florida most of the collections in Homestead will charge around $4 a piece for budwood if you collect it yourself.  If you factor in the legal paperwork and shipping, not to mention the selection of pieces suitable for grafting, that price is pretty good.

I totally agree! You are not going to find the selection that Oscars has at homedepot or clausens...to play you gotta pay.

I can split some avocado scions with you.  Planning on getting Murashige and Kahaluu?
