WANTED: fruit tree scions trade?

Do people trade fruit tree scions on this forum? Here's my have/want list. Thanks for checking it out!

Apple scionwood: I have Florina, Jonafree, Karmijn de Sommeville, and Liberty

Fig: I have Desert King.

Cherry: I have Lapin, Bing, Stella and Rainier. Also have nanking cherry seeds.

Gooseberry: I have Yellow Hinnomaki

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.

Apple: I'm looking for Rubinette, Ashmead's Kernel, 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

RE: WANTED: fruit tree scions trade?

I don't have any of the varieties that you are looking for...

I inherited a few trees when I moved in to my home & planted a few since. We have:

Apple - inherited NoID: insanely sweet mottled red & green
Pear - inherited NoID but I would guess that it is Comice.
Peach - Reliance
Cherry - Rainier
Plum - NoID yellowish red coloured
Black Currant - inherited NoID, roots easily, doesn't have to be grafted, just planted.
Blueberry - Bluecrop (very limited quantity)
Grape - Concord (very limited quantity)
Grape - Himrod(very limited quantity)

It isn't the best list... but its a start (: The last 3 plants are still quite small, so the scions would be less than pencil sized (which I believe is ideal for grafting).

Good luck with your scion hunt Zestfest. If there is anything that you are interested in, just let me know.

Hi glynis3, thanks for the note, and the link to your cool blog. I don't have a lot of room for grafting scions and am still hoping to get the scions I mentioned, so I'll pass on your scion list, but I may be up for some veggie seed trading... I will update my trade list and get back to you. Thanks! ZF
