Have many exotic fruit tree scions in exchange for Col de Dame Blanc fig plant

(1/2) > >>

Hi All,

Short story is I'm looking for a CDD Blanc plant and have many fruit tree scions for exchange.

The long story is I got a CDD Gris three years ago and now know that it's not a good choice for Phoenix AZ due to the eye being open. I did my research before and read somewhere that CDD Gris has a closed eye so I went with the Gris. Wrong, it has an open eye here in Phoenix that allows the sour fruit beetle in. These pests don't spare any figs

I should have figured this out a year ago had I not planted the CDD Gris near a large eucalyptus tree. Well I found out figs can't tolerate eucalyptus like the white mulberry can and had to replant it elsewhere. I figured fig and mulberry are related and both have aggressive root systems, so why not. The CDD Gris and a Janice Seedless were totally stunted next to the eucalyptus tree, but grew well after moving them away.

Hi Steve,

Can I get a scion for an arabian guava? Or a plant..lol

Long shot, but NIWAKI NURSERY has them (currently sold out) but you could reach out and see if they can provide a cutting?
PS, how is your Marula doing? I had 5 seeds and only 1 sprouted, and now I'm scratching my head if I should get more to try for the male & female.

Arabian graft died in a freeze.  Logee's has Egyptian Guava for sale.  They're probably the same.

My marula grew like a weed in the ground in Phoenix.  8.2pH soil and water didn't bother it at all.  Neither did 120F heat waves.  But it always got freeze damage, so I cut it down. I think young marula trees are a bit less cold hardy than tropical guava.
I got 90% germination from marula seeds by sanding down the seed caps and using a closed container with bottom heat from a heat mat.

Thanks Steve, thats what I am guessing the Egyptian is the same,. they look the same atleast.
