Title: Free- Peluche Loquat scion wood (Contest) # 7 CLOSED
Post by: sc4001992 on June 19, 2022, 11:43:08 AM
This is my way to "pay it forward" to the Loquat lovers out there.

I'm doing this giveaway so those who do not have a Peluche can get a Free cutting to graft onto their tree. This will be the last free Peluche giveaway for the year (my grafted tree can't be cut any more this year).

This loquat cutting will be from my grafted tree that is a proven Peluche with the large orange flesh fruits. The origin of my Peluche is from two sources: Adam (Flying Fox Fruits) and Adam Karsten (AKME Gardens). My tree has fruited for 2 years, currently has many large green fruits on them now. I did a taste comparison to my other varieties and this year I gave it a taste rating of 8 out of 10 (best).

Here's the free contest rules:  IF YOU WON A PREVIOUSLY PELUCHE OR HAVE A PELUCHE TREE THEN DO NOT ENTER THIS CONTEST, LET SOMEONE ELSE WIN:
=> Updated rules for contest, see below info 6/24.

1. Anyone who will be a 1 year forum member this month (June 2022) can post below and will get a free cutting.
2. Anyone who will be a 2 year forum member this month (June 2022) can post below and will get a free cutting.
3. Anyone who will be a 3 year forum member this month (June 2022) can post below and will get a free cutting.
4. Only the first person for each anniversary year (1, 2 & 3) that post below will win a Peluche cutting.

=> You must post "This is my 1st year (2nd year, 3rd year) anniversary month"

5. I will confirm the winner below for each year (1, 2, 3), and when I do, send me a PM and you will need to pay for shipping cost.

GOOD LUCK to the Three winners.

6. Open to those who live in contiguous (lower 48 states) USA.
7. You will need to pay for handling/shipping of $10, USPS priority mail, small box.
8. Cutting will be 1/4"-3/8" hardened wood. Tree is a vigorous grower.
9. Contest will go on until three lucky person wins.
10. You must post your guess here to win, don't send me a message (PM) until I confirm you are a winner below.

I joined TFF on May 10, 2019. Could I be in the running for 3 year?

Kevin, need to be in month of June 2019, but if no one post for June by the last day of June, then I will say the closest date to June 1st will get it. That will be for all three years (1st yr, 2nd yr, and 3rd year) so we will have 3 winners if no one registered on June.

The cross section of users who: have loquat and can graft, and who joined in June may be quite small - but I like the contest anyhow and hope there are 3 lucky users!

Ok, updated contest rules below: Updated 6/24   

Since we have no one that is interested or have their anniversary on June, the new rule is below to win a Peluche cutting.

1. By end of June 30 (last day of month), the person who's anniversary is the closest to June 1 for that year (1 yr-2021, 2yr-2020 & 3yr-2019) will be the winner.
2. You must post your anniversary in this post below to be considered.
3. I will confirm the winner for each year (1, 2, 3), and when I do, send me a PM and you will need to pay for shipping cost.
4. There will be one winner for each year, you can not win more than one even if you are the only person who posted.

GOOD LUCK to the Three winners.

5. Open to those who live in contiguous (lower 48 states) USA.
6. You will need to pay for handling/shipping of $10, USPS priority mail, small box.
7. Cutting will be 1/4"-3/8" hardened wood. Tree is a vigorous grower.
8. You must post your guess here to win, don't send me a message (PM) until I confirm you are a winner below.

This will allow more people to enter and play. The sooner you post your date below the better.

I didn't pay attention to this thread at all... can I get a raincheck? The KT1 used up my rootstock or existing tree space and seedlings are tiny toothpicks.

Date Registered:June 05, 2020, 19:26:06

This is my 2nd year anniversary month
