WANT: Lintong Huo Jing Persimmon

by ronke47 » 10 hours ago in Exchange Scions

This is also known as Fire Crystal which is just a brand name for the variety. Plants, though available, cannot be shipped to California; so I am looking for scionwood or alternatively a California source for a tree. Thanks.

Dooryard cold hardy Avocado

by kingoceanos » 3 days ago in Exchange Scions

Well it's that time of year again, I am looking for avocado scions that are cold hardy and have fruit with the same or better features as the California Hass. The cold hardy commercially available ones at my local nurseries just don't have that nice buttery hass texture and taste. I am only growing them for my wife and I so we don't need massive production just good quality fruit. I have heard there are plenty of good types out there that were dropped because of poor production or because of thin skin that wouldn't ship well.
I currently have Stewart, Bacon, Brogdon, Gwen, Bonny Doon, Several unknown Mexicans, and some Bonny Doon seedlings.

Thanks
