I just read that it'd be possible to increase the yield with cross pollination. I don't know much about passiflora. So I just wanted to test it. Thanks for all the suggestions. I'd also appreciate if you guys can point me to a place where I can find some cuttings

I'm looking for a passiflora variety that can be cross polinated with Passiflora edulis 'Frederick'. I'm in 9b cold hardiness area so it has to be as cold tolerance as Frederick.

Hi Spaugh,

Sorry, my whole family had Covid, and one of them were affected really bad. I couldn't get back to you on this. I'll definitely share my orchard plants and the experiences that I'll have with the high density planting in the forum.

Lowe's has it.

I suspect they don't sell the seed itself.

shunshun, I hope that if you are going to plant these, you have tested them in your soil, the fact that they may tolerate cold better is only one item to determine the usefulness as a rootstock.  Another point is that openly pollinated seeds depending on where they are coming from, could be very unique and different from each other.

I have tested, Mexicola, Poncho, Monte de Oro (a Criollo) seedlings grafted on commercial varieties, and they don't do well in my soil, weak small trees, elements deficiency ect. You can graft them on Waldin and they grow great. I would hate to plant so many seeds only to find out they don't work in my soil.

Yes, mexicola and topa topa have been tested. I totally agree that there isn't such a thing "the best seed". It really depends on your soil. I wish I could have Dusa but they are crazy expensive.

If you need 1000 mexicola seeds how about planting 5 or 10 trees and grow them out and grow your own seeds? 

Seems like if you are trying to go that big, doing that should be easy way to go.  Its how i grow my seeds out. Plant the trees you need then in a few years you have all the seed stock you will need to build the farm.

I see your point. But the problem is that it takes about 3-4 years to get fruit. Then, I'll wait another 6 months to have them ready to graft. It is a really long them from business standpoint.

Thatís a lot of seeds. Iíll get over 100 Mexicola seeds this Summer I can sell you if you wanted to wait that long

I think it shouldn't be too late. I'd like to buy them. How much would it cost per seed?


There is a new preferred avocado seed in Mexico called Creole. It is known to be more cold tolerant. But I couldn't find any scientific evidence.

Hello, I'm looking to buy 1000 mexicola, topa topa or Creole seeds. Does anyone have any idea how to buy them?
