Bump. Did manage getting some Norris cuttings from a generous member. Hopefully I'll get them successfully rooted. Would still be into a few male cuttings or other female varieties.

Still looking for the other stuff still as well. Might have a connection going for arbutus seeds at some point. Very interested to grow these.

They propagate from hardened stem cuttings. Highly recommend growing it if you live far enough south. I used to live in Sarasota which is where I was born. Grew great for me there and yielded very well.

I have root beer plant if you still need one. What type of yuca do you have? I want to try a bunch of varieties here to see what produces best this far north and gets large roots in one summer season.

Really wish I could do pigeon pea here. Unfortunately they flower so late in the year up here that the frosts always take them out before a harvest. Loved growing them down in Central South Florida. Really great plant and tasty little peas.

Is the white Mulberry you're talking about the species Morus alba with black fruits or is it an actual white fruited variety?

What other plants or seeds might you have? I might grab some black sesame or chickpea seeds from you. Maybe the Hawaiian chili peppers too. Otherwise I have pretty much all the other stuff you offered.

Grown sesame before but it's hard to actually harvest the seeds here. Usually rains so much around the time they are ready that the seeds try to mold in the pods. I would potentially try again though. Never grown chickpeas but interested to try if they produce a sizable harvest. Are they vining or like a bush?

I've got American persimmon seeds available. Should make really hardy rootstock. American persimmon is a tough plant that grows in some bad soil no problem.

Do all these species make edible fruit?

Pineapple guava are pretty tasty. If you haven't tried them definitely give them a go. Hopefully I'll get fruit on mine this year. I finally got them in the ground so I would think so. The large local bush I harvested from got chopped down this year. What a shame! Was a cultivar worthy of naming if it wasn't already a named cultivar. I don't know if it was since it was along a roadside on the edge of a property of people I've never met. Apparently they didn't want it or didn't know what it was.

These plants are available again. Live bare root

How hardy is this tree? It looks a lot like a doyvalis species but I'm likely wrong and didn't see any scientific name in your post. Do you have a minimum temp rating for it?

I'd be into some seeds for sure. Just in case cuttings don't work out. Are they a dioecious species?

Thanks! I've tried rooting che before but failed. Pushed good growth and I thought I had it but no...anyways will try again. Let me know when you're ready.

Does anyone have and of these plants as rooted cuttings or seedlings?

Thanks! DG

I'd be interested in buying some saijo persimmon cuttings from you. I still have the possibility of freezes for another 1-2 months but probably won't be much below 30F if that. Figure I could try grafting my trees now. Or is waiting a month better?

Think I remember reading in a different thread about the ginger limes that you don't use the fruit? Bitter tasting juice or something? Could be wrong but think I read that. Would you say the leaves are great for cooking use like Kaffir lime?

Anyone have any of these sunquat seeds or small plants?

I've never had them flowing or fruiting. Second year seedlings. I've had them in a low light greenhouse. Extra wrapped it for the extreme cold we had a few weeks ago. The low light has made some stuff get crappy looking. Suppose they are all good still if I get them into the sun soon.

I'll definitely send you some FMD if they are all good after a few weeks back in the full light.

No need to buy boxes. I usually pick them up at stores especially stores like dollar general where all their boxes are conveniently in little carts next to their dumpster area. In most cases depending on weight(up to a few pounds) shipping priority mail package in your own boxes with dimensions no longer than 22 inches and wider and or talIer than about 10 inches is cheaper than flat rate by a few dollars. If the package is exceedingly heavier than 5-6lbs flat rate might be cheaper also depending on where the package is going too. There's so much packaging waste from boxes to bubble wrap/newspapers etc is a shame anyone buys boxes and packing materials at all.

Do your trees make fruit? I tried rooting some che cuttings a few months back but was not successful. I'd really like to grow them. If anyone has small rooted plants or can make an air layer for me that would be awesome.

Do you think that the true cherries could possibly graft onto chickasaw plum? I've grafted improved plums, apriums, and pluots to it before with success. Also hear peach and nectarines can graft onto it as well. Cherries are a prunus so maybe it would work too. Unfortunately the large chickasaw plum tree I had grafted like 7 different varieties of improved species onto died from long standing water the following season. My back yard is low and after hurricane Michael knocked all the large trees down water stands forever back there. Three summers back we got 90+" of rain that year and had standing water for 3 months straight. Killed the giant plum tree and half my large blueberry row. So disappointing...but now I've got a new plum in the front yard. Gonna graft the heck outta it with good varieties.

Sure do

I might want to buy some of these seeds before next spring. They are pretty hardy growers right? Kinda like a Seminole pumpkin.

I have some lemon drop mangosteen seedlings that I could send you eventually. Hopefully I can get them through the winter. They are the superior variety.

Some cool looking varieties for sure. Want some extra cash to come along so I can pick some up from you.
