RE: Apple Scion Swap

Amazing list there.

I haven't got scion to spare this year, my trees are young, and besides it is late to be taking scion in socal. Maybe next year.

Anyway, here's what I am growing, mostly varieties known to do well in warmer climates:

Sekai Ichi
Beverly Hills
Ein Shemer
Golden Dorsett
Pink Lady

RE: Apple Scion Swap

Looks like you have some nice apples. If you're not aware of Kuffel Creek Nurseries they are located in SoCal and specialize in Warm Climate apples.

Here is a link that might be useful: Kuffel Creek

RE: Apple Scion Swap

Yeah, Kuffel Creek originally turned me on to the warm climate varieties. I was planning to order from them at some point, and then I was at the local nursery and saw an inexpensive bareroot 5-in-1 with all warm climate varieties and I impulse bought it. Already had the fuji here, and I just recently grafted on the pink, gordon & sekai ichi. I figure that's a good mix to start for my backyard forest garden.

I can't fill the whole place up with apples... got to leave space for avocado, citrus, stone fruits, loquats, grapes & persimmons.
