Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Pink Pineapple - NON GMO
« on: July 13, 2024, 09:31:11 AM »
Are you gonna make plants of this Pineapple available at some point?

Hello North Florida residents and close by neighbors! I just created a new Facebook plant sellers page/group. Inviting y'all to join! If you aren't somewhat local that is OK to advertise if you are capable of shipping to North Florida and nearby areas. The twist of this plant sellers group is that it's strictly edible, medicinal, and useful plants only. Please see rules for greater details. The page/group is called "North FL Edible, Medicinal, and Useful plants and nursery seller's group". The group was just created last night but is already gaining members steadily. Come over there and join up! It's gonna be the new hub for North Florida plant and nursery sellers and buyers connections group for our region. Shameless advertising, "in search of" posts, giveaways, trades, edible and useful plants informational posts, recipes/harvests/medicinal extraction techs are all welcome so long as it's based in the realm of edibles, medicinal, and useful plants. Help us get this group up and running! Please comment here if you joined from this post so I can get an idea of where the traffic is coming from.

Thanks for your help! DG

Anyone have seedling Japanese raisin trees or seeds available? Also looking for medlar and Hawthorne seeds or seedlings. Really interested in anything fruit, edible, veggie, herbs, etc that are cold hardy at the lower 20s or into the teens. If you have anything cool let me know.

Thanks! DG

Bunches of cleaned seeds available now. Stratification started already too. Hit me up!

I've got many of these plants available again. Also other stuff not in this list. If anyone is interested in what's available for shipping hit me up.

I've got some edible stuff that's good for shaded areas. Hit me up if interested.

Right on we do get into the teens here regularly unfortunately. I would try them out if they could handle down to around 20F. I suppose they would survive that potentially but would get fully burnt down yearly. Don't figure that'd be good for ever getting fruit.

How cold hardy do you think these are?

I don't posses the documents to ship over seas unfortunately. If you have a phytosanitary certificate or import permit I could print it out to send it with the package.

I talked to Mrs Crowley and she said there are some available at their nursery. I think he's gonna go grab one from them. Bought lots of stuff from them over the years. Cool nursery to walk through as well. In a way I miss living down there but glad to be were I am now in the panhandle.

My dad lives in Sarasota and is looking for a lychee tree. Think he wants a fairly sizable one off to a good start. He would prefer a dwarf type and self fruitful type if that's possible or exists but he would like any if not I would guess. Does anyone have trees available?

If you remember when your next round of orange CORG seeds are ready please let me know. I'll try to keep an eye on this post from time to time too. Planted the pitomba seeds I got from you recently.  Hoping to see sprouting soon! Thanks for the extra couple seeds!

Ok thanks unfortunately it gets much colder than that regularly in our winters here. We get into the low 20s or even teens fairly often.

What's the lowest temperature that this species can handle once it's large and established?

Right on I'll look into that thanks!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fig freeze back in FL panhandle

Thanks I'll try to see if I can make them grow slower. It's strange that the same varieties in a pot don't freeze back the way the in ground ones do.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fig freeze back in FL panhandle
« on: June 01, 2024, 02:20:47 PM »
For some unknown reason many figs I've planted in my yard freeze down all growth(even hardened growth) every winter. What's some possibilities for that? Don't think I have major nematode issues in this yard since I don't see root knots on things I've pulled up. Some trees are from cuttings of large healthy local trees that don't do the same where they are. My soil is thick but they aren't in areas that flood badly. Other species not doing the same thing. Any ideas?

Does anyone know of any fruit and or plant related shows, festivals, expos, etc in the FL panhandle area from like Jacksonville to Pensacola? Maybe downwards towards cedar key? Also possibly homesteading or similar interests kinda conventions? I know there's things like "Keeper's of the Old Ways" or the "American Farmstead Convention" out there but I cannot find much if any info online about other events. I would be also interested in any like events in south Georgia or Alabama as well. If you know of any such things please make me aware.

Thanks! DG

I have mimosa strigillosa aka sunshine mimosa. Definitely a good groundcover. We are already talking about other plants in pm if you wanted to add that into whatever else you get.

Received my plants today. Very nice large healthy plants. Price is a very good value. Don't hesitate to buy!

I just clean the chickasaw seeds and stratify. They come out of their shells super easy on their own. I don't crack them or anything. If you just let them sit in the fridge they will begin to sprout at about 1-2 months and just plant as they sprout.

I do stratify the seeds but not sure it's definitely necessary. Wild plums extend much further down the state than here. Unfortunately not an expert on their requirements but always worth a shot. At the least I'm sure they'd grow out enough to be rootstock. Makes a real hardy rootstock in my experience.

Looking to get some CORG seeds or possibly some reasonable priced seedlings. Would really like to have this species in my collection.

Thanks! DG

Not totally sure but we do get pretty cold here believe it or not in the FL panhandle. I would assume in Texas even in the southern parts likely have a similar level of cold in winter.
