Avocado seeds/pits wanted...

IowaAvoFebruary 11, 2012

I'm looking for avocado pits to use in an experiment. Specifically, from the larger, florida grown west indian or guatemalan types rather than the normal Haas types. The exception would be from dwarf trees of any variety, especially if the tree was a natural dwarf tree grown from a pit (and the specimin is exibiting natural dwarf characteristics, mature tree not over 15 ft. tall). Fruit eating quality of the trees is not really a concern, as this is a rootstock experiment.

I'll gladly pay the shipping charges, email me for info on how to send them "freight collect".

Thanks

Ken

I will have a Brogdon pit soon and am in Daytona Beach. Let me know if this is convenient for you.

I took all of the Brogdon pits from the fruit Silvia sent me and started them in water, transplanted about half of them into one gallon containers for the next plant swap...wish I'd known, I could have sent you at least 7-8 seeds but now the remaining seeds in water have 5 inches of root growth on them.
