Anyone want stone fruit seeds?

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.

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.

Any low chill variety Apricots(less than 400)? My grandmother really enjoys them

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.

apricots i swear grow faster then peach seedlings...at least some do.

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.

RE: Anyone want stone fruit seeds?

I forgot to ask,do they need a pollinator?I have a tree with Shiro,Santa Rosa,Damson and Italian Plums.Thanks,Brady


 o
RE: Anyone want stone fruit seeds?

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.


 o
RE: Anyone want stone fruit seeds?

Okay good,there is also a Puget Gold Apricot on that same tree.I'll have plenty of time to research before they are ready. Brady
