Anyone have small rooted plants or seedlings of true green/black tea(camellia sinensis)?

Other than starting from seed what's the best way to propagate Suriname cherry and star cherry? Will they root well from standard cuttings or best to air layer? Have good quality Suriname cherry. Dark and really good. Would like to propagate it this year. Two seedling bushes both good quality fruit and the only two around so seeds should make good fruit too. Flowers on them right now.

I saw jabo45's thread looking for scions and wanted not to hijack his thread. I need to find the cold hardiest varieties such as Joey and Fantastic. Have several seedlings to graft. They are bacon hybrids from Kaz, Jonah, or spaugh(one of them anyways) and some Stewart I think from spaugh. If I can't find  what I'm looking for I guess I'll  just keep letting  these grow. Be cool to see what they end up producing but not wanting to wait. Wasn't acquainted to  grafting when I started them but now I am so might as well speed the process of fruiting. Maybe I'll  let a Stewart avo seedling just grow but idk.

It usually only gets to the high 20s here but once every decade or so might hit the mid teens. Want my trees to handle those years preferably with minimal damage.  Fantastic avo is the one I want most. Hear Joey isn't that great but I'm not picky and any avocado is better than none. Know there's others out there that are nearly as hardy as Fantastic but any hardy to the mid 20s or lower will be good.

Looking to put this out there now so I can have arrangements  made for spring in advance. Know they are out there but hard to find. Had a fantastic tree at one point but root rot got it one rainy winter. What can you do.

Anyone out there with any cold hardy avocado hit me up!

First time ever getting flowers on my trees. Had them growing for 5+ years.  Tested some seeds in a little pot to make sure they were good. Appears a few are sprouting.  Pretty sure they are definitely little kratoms.  Grown some from seeds before and they look right. Very small starting out. Viability is very short. Only about 2-3 months. Must be planted immediately.  Seeds super small. Thinking 50 or so seeds for $5 plus shipping USPS first class package.  Trades always considered. Looking for Piper betel, fish mint, water celery, ashitaba(not longevity spinach), zone 8 hardy fruits/veggies etc, cold hardy avocado seeds,  or make offers.

Always have a bit of a hard time getting certain species rooted. I do usually get some success but for example with grapes and figs maybe I'll get up to 2 of say 10-20 cuttings to take. For the following species whats been your keys to success?

Fig
Muscadine Grape
Sherbet berry
Pineapple guava
Psidium Longipetiolatum
Apples
Pears
Goumi
Aronia
Mulberry
Autumn Olive

If it is simply just have a root stock and graft it then thats fine. However I did try apple cuttings this year and maybe some have taken but not sure yet. Perhaps this is a just graft it species. 

When I tried cuttings of several of these it was just done traditional style. Cuttings in moist soil with and without adding humidity on different tries. Usually dormant cuttings nearing waking in spring.  What are your suggestions for better success?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / What is this wild florida berry?
« on: August 08, 2021, 09:04:50 PM »
Appears to be in the blueberry family.  Sweet with good edibilty so says my buddy that found these. Doesn't quite look like a true Huckleberry,  sparkleberry, or blueberry. Wild blueberries are done for the season up here in the panhandle too. The bush in question is in Milton, FL. Huckleberry persists on the bushes way longer than blueberries but aren't good. Mostly grainy and tasteless. Leaves are usually rounded from wild bushes ive seen. Many sparkleberry or farkleberry are bitter though technically edible but not palatable in most cases. What the heck is this thing??? My best guess is that it is a sparkleberry of some sort thats not bitter and good quality. What y'all thinking?

Citrus General Discussion / Best zone 8 hardy citrus
« on: July 28, 2021, 04:43:52 PM »
Have a bunch of trifoliate orange seedlings that I might be able to graft in the spring. Startinf to think of types of citrus to possibly graft on them. Im in the Florida panhandle in a solid zone 8 environment.  Temps can get as low as 15F every once and awhile but usually don't break the high to mid 20s.  Just wanting to hear recommendations on the best cold hardy citrus out there. Don't care what varieties.  Just want fruit. Kumquats, calamondin, oranges, grapefruit,  what the hell ever. Not picky in the least just want trees I wont need to protect and will set reasonable quantities of fruit. What y'all thinking?
