Anyone want stone fruit seeds?

fruitnut Z7 4500ft SW TXMay 5, 2012

I have stratified seeds of the following: Tomcot and Rodada apricots; Flavor King, Flavor Grenade, Geo Pride, Flavor Treat, and Flavor Finale pluots. I tested a few apricots and they are germinating but there are no assurances on that front. These were grown in my greenhouse so the pollen parent is unknown but should at least be a good fruit.

If interested send me an email with your address and what you'd like, via my page. Don't have that many seeds.

I'm very interested. I'm just getting started with my first orchard and I'm looking for as much variety as I can find.

The seedling trees won't produce exactly the same as the tree the fruit came from. Will be potluck as far as what you get 7 to 12 years from now.

That's the fun of it, chances are pretty high in stone fruits, graft the seedlings onto a mature tree and cut time about in half to see fruit.

Seeds are all spoken for.

In my climate I'd expect fruit off seedling apricot and pluot in 3-4 years. Seedling apricot fruit almost as fast as grafted. I've grown those many times and most are very productive. Fruit is usually pretty good to fair.

So far it's been all Flavor Treat, fruitnut,with six popping up.I'm happy,but I think I read in some of your previous posts that it takes quite awhile for the fruit to mature.
Well,I'm making a small greenhouse and possibly we'll have a summer to remember in the Pacific Northwest one of these years and I'll get some fruit. Thanks again,Brady

Brady:

I planted a few and got nothing so you are ahead of me. I love the Flavor Treat; big, firm, and beautiful. The most likely male parents are Flavor Grenade, Flavor King, or Flavor Finale; all great fruits. Yours are unlikely to be nearly as good but you have a chance.

Brady: That would probably work but pollination requirements can be pretty specific. They might pollinate each other or even need something like an apricot. You could have a plumcot like Flavorella that needs an apricot pollinator.
