Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / ISO Lemon cuttings
« on: March 23, 2021, 10:44:31 AM »
Just looking for any old lemon cuttings off of fruiting trees to root. Wanting to do something nice as a few gifts for people and just donít have the capacity to take lemon cuttings from my tree yet. I do have quite a bit to trade:

Cuttings from -

Fukushu kumquat
Nordmann seedless
Australian Blood Lime
Murcott mandarin
Regular green finger lime

I have very few and could spare some from:

Red Finger lime
Rangpur lime
Variegated Navel Orange (-cara cara aka Tiger Navel)

Or I am willing to buy cuttings outright. Shipping from Wisconsin.

As the title suggests! I will pay for scions or trade! I have lots of cool citrus cuttings I can take from such as finger limes, red finger, blood finger limes, variegated navel, murcott, various kumquats, bergamot orange, and more.

The dwarf pomegranate I have finally fruited and it was gross lol. I want something worth my while.

I also have Coffee plants I can trade. Pm me with any cutting opportunities!

I just purchased the last the nursery had, Taichang Lemon which Iím told is a more rare variety? However, I am unable to find much info on them. Perhaps someone who owns/owned one can tell me a little more on them and how they do as container trees?


Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / ISO flying dragon seed

Just wondering if anyone had flying dragon seeds to sell?

Citrus General Discussion / Wekiwa vs OroBlanco
« on: September 19, 2020, 10:07:31 PM »
Iím wondering which of these varieties I should buy? I am lacking a grapefruit/pomelo in my collection and seem to have narrowed to these. Of course I will be growing in containers, currently both available to me on dwarf/semi dwarf rootstock. Does anyone possibly own each tree, or can give me a comparative flavor profile? As well as if theyíre good containerized varieties or not.

Thanks to all!

Looking to buy now for next years rootstock! Let me know if anyone has any.

Citrus General Discussion / Whatís all the hype about Bergamont?
« on: September 10, 2020, 10:05:42 PM »
Thereís been a lot of talk about this guy for whatever reason. Just wondering why? I ordered one just based on curiously, but I would like to know what other people use it for and why itís so highly sought after?

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Avocado scions (ISO)
« on: September 02, 2020, 07:26:18 PM »
ISO any good smaller diameter avocado scions. They are container plants but Iím open to just about any type of avocado scions. Just must be less than pencil thickness as my rootstock is slightly smaller yet. I have plenty to trade or I can purchase outright. I have over 15 citrus varieties as well as some other tropics.

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Budwood trade anyone?
« on: September 01, 2020, 11:10:14 PM »
Just wondering if anyone out there was willing to trade budwood yet? Itís getting to be that time of year for trimming so I wanted to see what was open! I am in Wisconsin, I have no problem sending budwood. Make sure your state laws allow you to as well!

I have to trade:

Fukushu Kumquat
Lisbon lemon
Rangpur lime
Ponderosa lemon
Key lime
Limequat (Eustis)
Variegated centennial
Green Finger Lime

Very very limited amount to trade of the following:
Tiger navel (variegated navel)
Australian Blood Lime (logees sells these)
Nordmann seedless
Variegated calamonsi

I also have dwarf pomegranate cuttings too that root super easy.

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / ISO Desert Lime
« on: August 24, 2020, 06:41:14 PM »
Anyone know where I can find a desert lime in the states? Iím more so just looking for cool varieties here before winter sweeps and people stop shipping.

Thanks for any replies!

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / ISO Coffee Seed
« on: July 30, 2020, 06:30:15 PM »
Just wanna get ahead of everything before the ripening of these things. Iíd love to buy bulk seeds of coffee for planting! I will be container growing them. Doesnít really matter what type. Shoot me a pm if you have/will have any fresh berries in the future.

Hey guys, Iím just wondering if anyone ever used this stuff in their 5-1-1 mix? Iím sick of buying reptibark online for $18+ a bag.. I know, expensive. This is what is locally available to me. Would those cocoanut hulls be a great substitute? Theyíre around 1/8Ē in size from the looks.. or should I go with the double shredded cedar mulch rather than the hulls? Any opinions would be appreciated!

Citrus General Discussion / Pomona Lemon
« on: July 18, 2020, 11:05:58 AM »
I have only recently discovered this variety and Iím able to buy one. Ive been wanting a New Zealand for a while, so Iím wondering, since this is a sweet lemon, does this one compare? A good substitute for a sweet lemon?

Looking to see if anyone knows where I could find one of these to be shipped? Any members have any for sale? Also perhaps any tips on growing them in containers.

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / ISO Normand Seedless Kumquat
« on: June 30, 2020, 07:21:25 PM »
Anyone know where to purchase an established plant? Everywhere seems to be out of stock. If anyone has a 1 gal or larger (any kumquat actually Iíll buy lol-I have meiwa and Fukushu and want more varieties) Iíd be willing to pay and for shipping too. Fourwinds and logees are out sadly.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / ISO Pickering mango

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Avocado potting mix
« on: June 11, 2020, 07:04:50 PM »
Hey all I just got my first avocados today! Going to stay in containers too. I live in the north so they must. Currently theyíre small so I have them in 12Ē (5 gallon) containers. I have a potting mix and perlite 50:50 mixture. Is this good enough for them? Just wanna make sure. I grow lots of citrus and never have issues with this soil!

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Misc rootstock for sale
« on: June 08, 2020, 12:53:53 PM »
Theyíre sickly I know, Iím just trying to make space. I have grafted all the plants I desire to have so these are the leftover, sprouted in October of last fall? Not sure what theyíre worth/if someone wants to trade me cuttings or plants for them lol. Will be shipped bare root. They range from 3-5Ē tall. Theyíve been neglected.
I have about 4 swingle, and I think 12 with a mixture of STD trifoliate, flying dragon, and other misc triís.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / ĎDayí Avocado and Oro Negro
« on: May 30, 2020, 09:26:32 PM »
I just purchased these two avos (the day is mine and my budís is the oro). Iím just wondering a little info on them by owners? (Flavor, texture, size of fruit, vigor, etc..) I canít seem to find anything online about these guys!! Not sure where else to look. I also plan to keep these in containers as Iím Zone 5, I have lots of experience with citrus, so Iím hoping some of this is similar to that in containers. I have a 10 gallon and a 15 gallon container ready for the two.

Any input is really appreciated!

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Avocado tree in containers question
« on: May 18, 2020, 11:00:15 PM »
Hello all, Iím trying to get some info before I go out and buy. Iíve been growing citrus in pots for years now, Iíve had great success! (At 15 varieties and climbing!) I do it all from propagate and root my own, to growing my own rootstock and grafting them: All in Wisconsin (5A). My climate is not ideal, but I have a love for tropical fruits!
I would like to get into avocados! I do not know much about their pollination other than A and B varieties.. or what that really means anyways in terms of pollination  and I know that ďevery plant is made to be outside, not in contaienrsbahahxhakĒ

I would just like to know what it would take to grow one and have it fruit successfully! Any variety better in containers than others? I have heard theyíre quite similar to citrus in care, but harder to get to fruit and pollinate. I have heard that thereís no ďrealĒ dwarf avo, which I would love to start there if there is. Iím working on growing some rootstock and will eventually graft my own, but Iím thinking I want to get into it sooner than later!

Citrus General Discussion / C-35 Vs Flying dragon
« on: April 25, 2020, 12:05:06 AM »
Rootstock questions!!

I do know a little about FD, it cuts tree size of around 50% or more, encourages early fruiting with large yields, and tolerance to root rot as well as cold hardiness. Although slow growing, They are ideal for containers.

I am wondering how does the semi-dwarf C-35 compare in size, fruiting capacity (early fruiting? Yields?), would it make a suitable candidate for containers? Downfalls of using it? Etc.

I know very little about C-35 and would love to know more before I purchase a few trees on this rootstock!


Citrus General Discussion / Flying dragon variety: Snow Dragon
« on: April 20, 2020, 02:18:44 PM »
Has anyone ever heard of this? I recently stumbled across this a little bit ago. I did not know that there was a variegated variety of the flying dragon! Definitely on my plants most wanted list.
