looking for Rubinette, Jupiter, kiwi

zestfest(7)January 28, 2013

Hi there -- I realize this is not the plant exchange forum but I've seen some scion exchange requests posted here so thought I'd give it a try as I'm not getting much response in other venues. Sincere apologies if it is out of line!

This is what I have to offer:
Apple scionwood: I have Florina, Jonafree, Karmijn de Sommeville, and Liberty
Fig: I have Desert King.
Gooseberry: I have Yellow Hinnomaki
Currant: Pink Champagne
Blueberries: I have Polaris and Northland
Grape: I have a vine that is either Reliance, Canadice, and Suffolk. Sadly, I don't know which as the label fell off.

This is what I'm looking for:
Parafilm (hoping this will improve my grafting success)
Apple: I'm looking for Rubinette, Ashmead's Kernel, Kidds Orange Red, Fiesta and Suntan apple scionwood. Also looking for crabapples like Dolgo to use as pollinators.
Hardy Kiwi: I'm looking for males, Issai, and any variety other than Anna and Ken's Red.
Fig: I'm interested in anything that would do well in the Pacific Northwest except for Brown Turkey.
Grape: I'm looking for Jupiter, Price, and NY Muscat cuttings

Thanks & happy growing!

According to my records I have Suntan, Rubinette, and Ashmead's Kernel. Give me a chance to go out and check if they have any scion I can take.

How is the Suntan apple? Stephen Hayes (Fruitwise from UK) seems to really like it, but I haven't seen it around too much. ToA seems to be the only place selling it, and they don't do dwarf rootstocks.

I haven't tasted it yet. I hope to get some this year. I'm pretty sure I bought mine from Cummins.


The first year growth I have is not pencil thickness. I don't mind sending the scion but I don't think it's really large enough in diameter. I'm no expert on grafting. Maybe it would work for a bark or cleft graft. LMK.

Hi milehighgirl -- TYSM for checking! It seems some people have had success with wood at least 1/8 inch thick, so if you are OK with sending it I'd like to try. I will PM you. Also, I got a message from tedgrowsit but it seems his email is not activated so I can't reply... so I hope he sees this message!

As far as legality goes, how does one send scion from the U.S. to Canada? (I didn't see you were in Canada before)
