Looking for seeds of quince and fuyu persimmon for rootstocks
« on: January 29, 2023, 04:57:35 PM »
Hi,
i am looking for 5-10 seeds each of quince and diospyros kaki ‘Fuyu’ for rootstocks. Not sure if there is a certain variety of quince that gives a better disease resistance but i am open to trial so please let me know what you have for sale or trade. Thanks.

Hey Satya,

I have 7 fuyu seeds that have been stratifying in my fridge since November.


I also have Persian quince cuttings that have rooted in peat moss as well as some seedlings from some grocery store quinces coming up in the garden.

Happy to swap or sell. Have a great week.

James

I've got American persimmon seeds available. Should make really hardy rootstock. American persimmon is a tough plant that grows in some bad soil no problem.
Trying to grow it all!
