I have a purple variety but think it's molokia. They are pretty good nonetheless. I'll have slips for it before long.

My buddy sometimes has them at his nursery but right now he doesn't. He's going to pick up a bunch of apples here soon. Not sure if he'll get some tropic sweet or not this round. If he does they might not be dormant any longer either but we'll see. I'd like some scions as well.

I'll check the vine out. Might have to wait until active growth begins or there's ripening grapes. It's entwined with other grapes and without active growth or grapes I don't think I'll be able to tell them apart. Once they start growing I can check for forked tendrils but if I cannot find any I'll have to wait for the grapes and take a pic of the vine bark and leaves. I'd like to verify for sure incase I did find something unique. Wanted to flag tape the vine so I could tell it apart and try to root some to put in the yard assuming it was a muscadine. Never did though.

The pink grape in question I do believe is a muscadine based on your description of the vines. Don't have a pic of the actual vine to share but I can get some. The vine is smooth and leaves are not velvety at all. Basically identical to the other muscadine growing with it. Cannot speak on the tendrils as I didn't pay attention to that but otherwise I would think everything else checks out. I have seen what appears to be the calousa grape before. There's actually one on the rock pile with that other muscadine I mentioned before. Distinctive difference in the leaves and bark of the vines for sure. I do happen to have pics of the pink grape itself but not the vine they came from. You definitely have more knowledge than I do obviously but let me know your thoughts after seeing these pics.

If wild muscadine can pollinate the particular type I have then they might not be self fertile. I live in an area that is rural and wild muscadine are everywhere. I have heard 90% of wild vines are male but I'm unsure how true that might be. There are wild females around. Most of which have small purple black fruits. I have found a few with larger fruits but not quite as large as the ones I'm growing most often. I did find one with near marble sized fruits with distinctly pink skin. Fruit isn't large but ok flavor for a wild vine. However tastes are subjective and I'm one of those that can eat nearly anything and enjoy it to some extent. I like wild persimmon, muscadine, sand pears, etc and will eat them no problem at all. I eat the skins and seeds of muscadine no problem chewing the seeds not just swallowing them. I crunch through and enjoy Duncan white grapefruit seeds and all as bitter and numerous as the seeds can be. No qualms at all about that sort of stuff most wouldn't or couldn't do. It's a nutritional thing in my mind too I guess. The best phytonutrients and other bioactive compounds are highest in the parts most discard in many cases. That said I can acknowledge what would be considered a "good" fruit to those with much more picky tastes.

Same plant just the common name

Definitely layering is best and almost 100% successful. However I have rooted this one from regular cuttings. Not sure if it was a named variety but I suppose it is. Originally from my neighbors yard behind me. Rooted a few from his vines a few years back for my yard. Even without the normal maintenance it's still a good producer. The original owner no longer lives there or I'd ask if he knew what kind it was. The other variety he had over there is stellar but didn't have success rooting that one. Big grapes like ping pong ball sized and mostly still green when ripe. Down side is that at each flower it only holds a few grapes probably due to the large size each one gets. Vines aren't maintained though either so that may be a factor as well. If I can I'll try rooting them again but I don't know the new people so can't just jump in their yard and take cuttings. Maybe I'll meet them at some point again more than the once I talked to one of the guys over there very briefly at the back fence.

I may eventually release another large purple variety I collected from a large rock pile behind the place I used to work at. It may be a wild variety that just happens to have large good fruits but it's possible it ended up there at some point maybe when the rocks were dumped or whatever and rooted. Worthy of being a named variety and grows fully on its own without human intervention and is still highly productive too. Fortunately rooted a piece of that one before the original plant was destroyed when new owners took over the company and cleared the area back there. I'm gonna name it "Taunton" after the original owners of the business that used to own the land.

Plenty of cuttings still available. Get them before they wake up!

Grow it in the full sun up here. At least until it had gotten pretty cold then I moved it under the edge of a roof. Got 19F here one night and froze it down though it likely would have sprouted back. I had harvested tons of seed so I pulled it up to harvest the root. Was growing in a 15gal pot. The golden berry plant I had is sprouting back after freezing down in the same situation. They are related so I suppose the ashwanganda would have too.

Are you willing to sell scions instead of a trade? Don't have the things you are looking for but I'd like to possibly buy some of what you have.

Thanks for the info! I am on the hunt for low chill varieties. I may have access to some but curious what you might have. Also looking for a variety of other low chill species including apples, prunus, Mulberry, persimmon, and Asian pear.

Hello all! I was wanting to inquire whether or not pear grafts are likely to work if your scion wood has already leafed out? If you have experience please let me know.

Thanks! DG

Some pics of available tubers

It's already waking now. Lots of green buds just starting the leaf out.

Could you graft this cherry to a different prunus rootstock such as chickasaw plum?

They should grow very well down there. They are cold hardy enough to survive here no problem but are truly a tropical species. They will go dormant even down there for a few months. Just part of their life cycle.

They don't taste bad. Not super far off a potato. Can be used from fries to mashed like potatoes or used for desserts like Filipino people commonly do. The white version of this species probably is a bit better overall but it doesn't have the cool purple color. I do have white bulbils available too. Some cultivars of the white type are really misshapen though and hard to deal with preparing to eat. This purple one is more friendly to cleaning and peeling. These are a bit misshapen but only from pot crowding.
