How about non-fig cuttings?
« on: December 01, 2019, 07:34:58 PM »
Is it OK to offer cuttings for free or trade that are non-fig?

I have some other trees that aren't fig, such as Meyer Lemon, various mulberry, and fuyu persimmon. Some of which are going to need a rootstock to graft onto.

I'm going to be trimming them soon and might as well offer them up if that's allowed.

NO CITRUS too many federal laws and state state that do not allow citrus.

We will be putting a another category up for the backyard Gardener for all other varieties to be traded

Ok understood. I suppose the citrus laws are to prevent spreading pathogens.

Thanks!

Do the mulberry and fuyu require grafting?  If they do and you don't, is it one of those long wait times for fruit?  I ask, as they have been on my wish list, too.

I can't speak for Persimmon, but some Mulberries are very hard to root.  I have rooted some varieties by just sticking the cuttings in a pot without rooting hormone.  I also have started some by sticking the cuttings in water and changing it every day.

Persimmons are in general slow growers.  Donít get me wrong, I am not saying not to try cause itís better to try and have a possibility at succeeding then not to try and never succeed.

Maybe I should plan on getting an already rooted specimen of each rather than trying to root a cutting.

Just yesterday my Moro Orange cutting that I had in a heated humidity dome for about 3 weeks decided to drop both of its leaves.  It's not like the leaves were dying.  They looked perfectly healthy.  Just the stem and those 2 leaves.  Now it is just the stem.  No buds and I have never tugged on it to test.  I'm just going to leave it be and see if it decides to grow.  As the old expression goes, "It's not drinking water."  Well, in actuality, it really is, but I'll let it.  ;)

Those leaves were beautiful and super healthy looking.  I must have somehow accidentally broke them when I opened the lid for its daily breath.  That's the only thing I can think of for why they both jumped off the cutting on the same day. :(

Fighearted,

Sorry to hear that about your blood orange.  I tried to root some this summer.  A friend gave me a couple of cuttings, 6 to be specific.  I was about to get one to root.  I did not mess with mine till it got at least 2 new leaves.  If your stem is still green let it go and I wish you the best of luck.

My fuyu persimmons put on about 1 month of FAST growth and they they grind to a total halt and go into overkill fruit production.

You should see the Hachiya my neighbor has. It's a fairly large tree (about 12' tall) but you can reach most of the fruit. I bet it makes 300 pounds of fruit every OTHER year. This year was an off-year and it didnt' produce anything but this coming fall I'm sure it will look like it has orange balls for leaves.

Unfortunately goofy doesn't use them, he lets them fall to the ground and rot.

I love persimmons.  A house about 3 blocks from mine has 2 trees and they also let the majority of their persimmons fall to the ground.

Interestingly enough, had a similar conversation about persimmons in another topic (The Backyard Gardener) about which variety is cold hardy but seems fuyu is a favorite all around. Havenít gotten any plants yet.. winter is here (yes, GoT reference) so gives me time to research reputable nurseries/sources. Although from what I understood so far, small trees donít fruit so patience is a virtue?

@LaFigGwr2019 The stem is still 100% green with no sign of black on it.  There might even be a bud forming above where one of the leaves was.  It's lighter in color but a bit hard for me to see with my old eyes.  I am not touching it.  Just going to let it be and see what happens.  Quite the waiting game.

In the same container, I have a mango seed growing.  It had sprouted about 1" with red stem and green tip, then it just stopped growing for 3 or 4 days.  I finally gave in and decided to look at it.  Picked up the seed (half on the surface) only to discover it was not attached to the growth!  That is why it stopped growing.  Somehow it had broken off.  I must have really done something without realizing it to that container.  The lemon and the mango are about 2" apart from one another.  I just stuck the stem back in and covered it.  Here we are a few days later, and it has once again grown and is sprouting a tiny little leaf!  I know, I know..... roots before shoots.  I'm not messing with it to see if it has any roots.  It just might have been working on forming them all those days when it was not growing.

My 3 trees were grafts and about 4' high when I got them. Two fruited the second summer, I'm guessing the other will fruit next summer

FogHearted,

I also have a mango seed growing.  I have a couple different experiments going that I want to do some playing around with.  I have 2 mango seeds, an avocado seed and about 5 pineapple tops growing. I am going to see what I can grow and get out of them.  I will be doing some grafting but I will first grow them bigger.
