Free- White Sapote scion wood - CLOSED
« on: March 20, 2022, 04:31:29 PM »
Ok, since there seems to be more interest in some free scion wood cutting, this will be for some white sapote.
I am digging up my large seedling tree (with 34 varieties multi-grafted) and will need to cut some long/tall branches so I can transplant it into a large pot. This is my way to "pay it forward" to the white sapote lovers out there.

Most of the varieties are named varieties from reliable and experienced forum members (Bush2Beach, JF, MarkLee, Oolie, ScottR, achetadomestica, Jack, Nipomo). I will not know which ones will be sent to you until I finish cutting branches and moving it.

1. Only open to forum members that have been a member for at least 1 year.
2. For those who live in contiguous (lower 48 states) USA.
3. You will need to pay for handling/shipping of $10, USPS priority mail, small box.
4. Cutting will be 1/4"-3/8" hardened wood. You will receive 4 cuttings.
5. If you're interested, send me a PM to make the payment for the shipping & handling cost.
6. Tell me when you make the payment what varieties you already have.
7. If you don't want the varieties I have available, then I can refund your $10.
8. First 10 people that make the payment will get first choice since I will limit the total cuttings to about 40.
9. Probably will be shipping cuttings in first week of April..

Closed, all full now.

Read message below, 4-3-22, for the list of varieties you will receive.

Thanks Stela for letting me know that some of the cuttings that I shipped did not make it without getting mold on them.
I checked some of my sample bags that I wrapped the cuttings in the same method and it also ended up having mold.

So, if anyone does not get any of the cuttings to take or if there are no good cuttings for grafting then just send me a PM and I will refund your $10. I don't have my large tree now since I had to dig it up a week ago so I will not be able to replace anyone's cuttings.

Sorry about that.

Cuttings arrived looking good. A few had mold on them, but there was plenty to graft. If you do send scions in the future, I'd suggest making sure the paper towel isn't too wet.
Thanks again for them and I appreciate what you have done, Kaz.

No worries from us.  I just wanted to let you know.  Thank you so much for the cuttings. 
Even if all the cuttings were bad, I wouldn't expect a refund for the shipping.  I really appreciate you offering
and taking the time to ship them.  Hopefully we can get some to take and can pay it forward in the future. 
Thanks again.

I am not sure why you felt like you had to refund me?  I am so sorry and just wanted to let you know I resent you the money.  I only private messaged you to let you know of the problem with the wet paper towel when shipping cuttings.  I posted this morning above that I did not want a refund even if all the cuttings went bad for whatever reason I would never expect you or anyone to refund shipping cost.  Kaz, I really appreciate you offering the cuttings and taking your time to prepare and ship them to us.
