In search of cold-hardy avocado scions on a very limited budget, so I would prefer to trade, rather than purchase, if I have anything of interest to you.

I can offer Wilma & Aravaipa Avocado, Rainbow and Suebelle White Sapote, Ormond and Saijo Persimmon, and a dozen or so types of figs.

I'm interested in Brogden/Brogdon, Carolina, Day, Ettinger, Jade, May, Lula, Mexicola, Mexicola Grande, Poncho, Pryor/Fantastic/Del Rio, Puebla, Stewart, and probably anything else I don't have that can take both heat and cold. I'd also be pleased to get a few seeds from Lula, Duke, Zutano, Bacon, or other cold-hardy varieties known to make good rootstocks.

I should have chopped it earlier, but couldn't wait to taste the fruit, so I let it bear a couple of crops when it was really too young. The mangoes were so heavy, the branches bent down almost vertically, and stayed that way, so I chopped the top off to start over. Tucson winters get too cold to grow mangoes in the ground, unprotected, so this will be a container plant forever. I'd like to keep it short and bushy, and there are 9 new branches starting. Should I keep them all, or limit it to just a few main branches and and pinch to promote lateral branching in those?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Wanted--Duke Avocado budwood

I grafted these Duke Avocado scions a couple years ago, but they didn't make it. I'd like to give Duke another try if someone can spare a piece of budwood.
