Would be awesome in the case of seeds to get a whole fruit to try. However seedlings or seeds fine too. Looking for a friend. Don't really matter what type she just wants some seeds or a plant. Sold all mine a few days before she asked about them.

Thanks! DG

Maybe not the most appropriate spot to post but there will be some fruit trees in the mix. Anyways I'll be a vendor this Saturday at the Wewahitchka, FL tupelo honey festival selling all manner of permaculture and edible plant species. If there are any panhandle locals come check us out! Mention seeing this ad and receive a free 4" potted plant with other purchase. Tons of varieties available. I'll try to put up a list later on today. Otherwise not the biggest festival in the world but lots of vendors with all kinds of crafts. More this year than ever too.

Thanks! DG

Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / Nut trees for the south
« on: February 16, 2022, 12:18:51 PM »
Anyone got any dormant southern pecan, black walnut, or other nut varieties that will work in the FL panhandle? Like young seedling trees.

Really want to get some jujube trees going on my homestead. None of the ones I got in the past made it. Suppose moving root runners or seedling trees while dormant is best. Root runners of already mature trees would be ideal but anything works. Hit me up!

Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / Low chill Asian pear
« on: February 05, 2022, 11:00:50 AM »
Have a nice rootstock grown out from a grafted variety I had bought awhile ago. Even before allowing that rootstock to grow out whatever variety it was on top wasn't doing good at all here. Can't remember what variety I bought. Just a bare root tree bought from a roadside vendor for $10. Now that I got a nice bit of rootstock growth I can cut the other old scion off and graft the rootstock with a better variety for here in the FL panhandle. Preferably a variety with less than 400 chill hours but hopefully  250 or less. Anybody out there got scions available for a low chill Asian pear?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fig tree die back
« on: February 02, 2022, 12:15:49 PM »
Does anybody have an idea why a fig tree or in my case three different trees of different varieties keep dying back to the ground in winter? I'm in the FL panhandle so it definitely doesn't get too cold here. However this has happened every year for 3 years. No clue why this would occur when there's other figs in the yard doing fine and all over town. Also two if the three are rooted pieces from local trees that don't freeze or die back. What the heck is up here?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Cold hardy avocado seeds
« on: February 01, 2022, 05:10:41 PM »
Know there has been others asking but I need to ask too.

Anyways a kind member sent some Wilma avocado seeds that I did plant already. However I would be greatly happy to procure some more seeds from any of the cold hardiest varieties. If anyone out there has some please hit me up! Prefer varieties that can withstand temps of 25F or even better 20F or less. Might as well have cold hardy rootstock for the hardy types I will graft onto them later. It can get into the teens here every so often. Want not to loose any trees if that occurs.

I attempted grafting some rootstock I have now today and will be trying the rest over the weekend. I realized I'm gonna need vastly more rootstock in the future to try again not only to create my own trees but to have some to sell/giveaway down the road too.  I probably didn't do the greatest grafts today so it's possible I will fail and perhaps kill those rootstocks anyways.

Want seeds of varieties:
Opal
Wilma
Brazos Belle
Poncho
Joey
Lila
Fantastic
Mexicola Grande
And/or others of like cold hardiness

Thanks for your help! DG

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Grafting avocado
« on: February 01, 2022, 04:56:35 PM »
Have a few questions about grafting avocado. A generous member sent some scions that I attempted grafting a few today. Tried two cleft grafts on side branches of a larger rootstock and left the top growing tip on that plant as a measure to hopefully keep the tree alive in general if the grafts fail. Would cut the top off later if the grafts are successful. Unfortunately not sure I did a great job but we'll see.

On two other smaller rootstocks I tried to side veneer graft near the bottom of the rootstock. Left the growing tips on the trees also as a measure to not loose the rootstock if the grafts fail. Unfortunately not sure I did too good with these grafts either. Can't get better unless you try right?

That was a general overview of what I tried today for informational purposes as a prelude to my questions. I'm certainly much more experienced and therefore more comfortable with the cleft grafting. I'm not that experienced a grafted nonetheless. I feel the side grafting is likely a better option to success or at the least to save the rootstock if a graft fails. My major question is on my remaining rootstocks should I just cleft graft somewhere on the main trunk of the seedling trees cutting off the main growth tips and hoping for the best? Figure in the event of a failed graft it's more likely the rootstock will die off too right? The rootstock are healthy enough but maybe not the healthiest in the world if you see my implications there. If a were to cut off the main growth tip and still graft above a side branch would that be better? Leave something for the rootstock to photosynthesis with or would the side branch steal too much resources from the scion? Obviously the scion would become the main stem tip though so maybe I'm wrong there??? Would cut the side branch off if the scion was successful. Rather not kill all my rootstock in the event of failures. What's y'alls wisdoms on this? I will attempt grafting the rest of the scions this weekend when I'm off work again and give the time to get some replies from a variety of people.

Thanks for your help! DG

Anyone have small rooted plants or seedlings of true green/black tea(camellia sinensis)?

Other than starting from seed what's the best way to propagate Suriname cherry and star cherry? Will they root well from standard cuttings or best to air layer? Have good quality Suriname cherry. Dark and really good. Would like to propagate it this year. Two seedling bushes both good quality fruit and the only two around so seeds should make good fruit too. Flowers on them right now.

I saw jabo45's thread looking for scions and wanted not to hijack his thread. I need to find the cold hardiest varieties such as Joey and Fantastic. Have several seedlings to graft. They are bacon hybrids from Kaz, Jonah, or spaugh(one of them anyways) and some Stewart I think from spaugh. If I can't find  what I'm looking for I guess I'll  just keep letting  these grow. Be cool to see what they end up producing but not wanting to wait. Wasn't acquainted to  grafting when I started them but now I am so might as well speed the process of fruiting. Maybe I'll  let a Stewart avo seedling just grow but idk.

It usually only gets to the high 20s here but once every decade or so might hit the mid teens. Want my trees to handle those years preferably with minimal damage.  Fantastic avo is the one I want most. Hear Joey isn't that great but I'm not picky and any avocado is better than none. Know there's others out there that are nearly as hardy as Fantastic but any hardy to the mid 20s or lower will be good.

Looking to put this out there now so I can have arrangements  made for spring in advance. Know they are out there but hard to find. Had a fantastic tree at one point but root rot got it one rainy winter. What can you do.

Anyone out there with any cold hardy avocado hit me up!

First time ever getting flowers on my trees. Had them growing for 5+ years.  Tested some seeds in a little pot to make sure they were good. Appears a few are sprouting.  Pretty sure they are definitely little kratoms.  Grown some from seeds before and they look right. Very small starting out. Viability is very short. Only about 2-3 months. Must be planted immediately.  Seeds super small. Thinking 50 or so seeds for $5 plus shipping USPS first class package.  Trades always considered. Looking for Piper betel, fish mint, water celery, ashitaba(not longevity spinach), zone 8 hardy fruits/veggies etc, cold hardy avocado seeds,  or make offers.
