Trying to find ungrafted fruit trees/seeds

TomVA12345February 27, 2014

Does anyone know where I can get seeds or an ungrafted Apple or friut tree from? I have one field I am saving for these and I'd like to just preserve the original stock. I have enough grafted trees, I'd really like to find some nice heirloom trees or seeds.
Appreciate your help !

Tom,

If you are looking for native type fruit trees on their own roots, try VDOF.

There is also a place called Vintage Virginia Apples off rt 29 in VA that has some Heirloom varieties.

If you are looking to grow persimmon from seed, I bought my seed from England's Orchard. Cliff is a great guy to work with.

Thanks,

Jack

You might find trees/seeds in your local parks, this is how I've grown lots of trees.

I have never bought anything from Oikos but it has been mentioned a lot on this forum:

You can save the seeds from the apples you buy at the market, which will usually sprout just fine. One of my trees was grown by me from a granny smith apple seed. The tree produces a sweet yellow apple similar to a golden delicious. You never know what you might get when using seeds, and the time they take to bear can be unbearable. But it will be your unique tree.
