Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Mexican Sunflower cuttings
« on: August 30, 2021, 08:25:34 PM »
Mexican Sunflower cuttings for sale or trade. Super easy to propagate via cuttings.  Grows very fast and puts on huge amounts of biomass in a season. Nutrient accumulator and high in nitrogen.  Supposedly worth its weight in chicken manure. Famous for its use as a permaculture chop and drop fertilizer support species. Also has large yellow sunflower like blooms that attract many pollinators. $1.50 per cutting with a minimum order of 5 cuttings at $7.50. Plus applicable shipping or agreed trade.

Im mainly looking to trade for zone 8 hardy species that are edible/medicinal or fruit bearing plants.  I'm into exotic stuff as much as conventional stuff. Rare medicinal herbs to perennial veggies and fruits etc. Make offers.

Inquire via pm. Thanks! DG

Hopefully my red Borneo that's finally making a comeback will be ready for cuttings again before long. Got really beat up by winter this past season. Keep an eye out for this type in the future.

Inquire via pm. Thanks!  DG

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?

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Is this a wild cherry tree?
« on: April 03, 2021, 08:35:47 AM »
Tons of these growing near a friend's house. Pretty sure they are wild cherries. In Jackson county, FL. If so is this type edible? I know these are not the inedible cherry Laurel. Thanks for your help!

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Apple seedling flowering super young
« on: March 10, 2021, 07:15:31 AM »
Wanted to share this with anyone that might find it interesting. I grew a seedling apple from a store bought fruit that I intended to be rootstock eventually. The other day to my surprise I noticed there are 5 or so flower buds forming on the plant. It could have been a seed from a Fuji, gala, or maybe red delicious or granny Smith. Most likely one of the first two since that's mostly the types we buy. Anyways the seedling is probably not even two years old yet. Hear that it should be around 8 years to flower. Perhaps a freak like this one could be useful to breed varieties that possibly might mature quickly??? Pics kinda suck but I'll post a few here soon.

Citrus General Discussion / Thoughts on this citrus
« on: January 27, 2021, 09:04:42 PM »
I found these growing basically in a wooded area where nobody would have been taking care of the tree. It is more of a sprawling large bush than an actual tree. Not a large trunk going mostly upward but many long side branches arching off the main trunk lower to the ground. They are a very vivid burnt orange color as opposed to a standard orange. Don't know that the pics really show the color accurately. You can see the lemon like nipple on the fruits. They are basically lemon flavored and not limey really. However they are not wickedly sour like most lemons are. It's definitely sour and not sweet but a very tolerable level of sour. If your into sour I could see someone actually eating these out of hand enjoyably. What do y'all think of them? Are they just an odd lemon? Furthermore picked many of them and could definitely trade/sell or giveaway seeds to anyone interested.
