Iitoi onions are perennial bunching onions that really multiply like crazy. Planted one bulb last spring on each spot and seriously most clumps have 40+ individual onions. Asking $6 for 5 starter onions. They aren't the largest variety of onions out there but they are really cool.

 PM me if you are interested! Thanks! Derek

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Is this a wild cherry tree?
« on: April 03, 2021, 08:35:47 AM »
Tons of these growing near a friend's house. Pretty sure they are wild cherries. In Jackson county, FL. If so is this type edible? I know these are not the inedible cherry Laurel. Thanks for your help!

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Apple seedling flowering super young
« on: March 10, 2021, 07:15:31 AM »
Wanted to share this with anyone that might find it interesting. I grew a seedling apple from a store bought fruit that I intended to be rootstock eventually. The other day to my surprise I noticed there are 5 or so flower buds forming on the plant. It could have been a seed from a Fuji, gala, or maybe red delicious or granny Smith. Most likely one of the first two since that's mostly the types we buy. Anyways the seedling is probably not even two years old yet. Hear that it should be around 8 years to flower. Perhaps a freak like this one could be useful to breed varieties that possibly might mature quickly??? Pics kinda suck but I'll post a few here soon.

Citrus General Discussion / Thoughts on this citrus
« on: January 27, 2021, 09:04:42 PM »
I found these growing basically in a wooded area where nobody would have been taking care of the tree. It is more of a sprawling large bush than an actual tree. Not a large trunk going mostly upward but many long side branches arching off the main trunk lower to the ground. They are a very vivid burnt orange color as opposed to a standard orange. Don't know that the pics really show the color accurately. You can see the lemon like nipple on the fruits. They are basically lemon flavored and not limey really. However they are not wickedly sour like most lemons are. It's definitely sour and not sweet but a very tolerable level of sour. If your into sour I could see someone actually eating these out of hand enjoyably. What do y'all think of them? Are they just an odd lemon? Furthermore picked many of them and could definitely trade/sell or giveaway seeds to anyone interested.

Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / WTB Apple scions for FL panhandle
« on: January 18, 2021, 07:16:56 AM »
Looking for a handful of scions of any types of apples that might do well here in the FL panhandle. Varieties such as Joy, Anna, golden dorsett, etc. Figure any varieties that have 500 hours or less of chill requirements might do OK here. Please let me know what you got! Probably would need to get the scions in February to attempt grafting before the trees fully wake.

Thanks! DG

Last year sometime I had collaborated with a member here and got some of these seeds from the UK. I did get a few sprouts but I had damping off and caterpillar issues and lost all the seedlings. I'd really like to get ahold of these again. Wondering how the other member did with their seeds? Can't remember who they were though. If you see this let me know. I'd totally buy a plant off you!


Have bunches of sugarcanes a friend gave me. Way too many to plant it all. Said ot was red Malaysian but it's also called FL or LA red. More than happy to trade or send some for postage covered if anyone wants some cuttings.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Longan and cherimoya seeds
« on: November 08, 2020, 04:55:00 PM »
Have a good handful of seeds of both cherimoya and longan fruit trees. Around 20 of each. Not sure I want to attempt to sprout them so close to winter with limited space to protect them. Feels wrong to toss good seeds so figured I'd offer them up for free if anyone will pay their shipping. If you wanna offer something as trade that's fine too but otherwise they are free to take for only shipping cost. If proposing trade I'm looking for zone 8 hardy species from fruits to perennial veggies/herbs.

Thanks! DG

« on: September 01, 2020, 07:25:57 AM »

Made it easier than writing it all out lol. Tools pics from my wife's hand written recipe. If it isn't clear let me know.
