Looking for peach scion: Dixigem or Coronet
My sister-in-law's family used to own an orchard in Oregon with a peach called, "Dixie Gem". I would like to find someone who has this tree. When I asked if I could get scion I was flatly refused; probably an non-proliferation agreement. Her father apparently had the trees custom grafted.
I don't know for sure, but I imagine it is also called, "Dixigem". Clemson University lists it as one of the parents of "Coronet".
I would even be happy with the seeds from this variety.
I've been searching for several years now. The closest I have gotten is Cumberland Valley, which sells Coronet, but they require $100.00 minimum (17 trees).
I found this old article from Auburn University that has some information about Dixigem.
