NAFEX has nothing to do with the illegal importation of foreign plant material into the United States.
Any belief that NAFEX members support the illegal importation of plant materials would be enormously naive. NAFEX is a fruit study group, publishing POMONA among many other contributions, with members from throughout North America and beyond.
Donít know if you are insinuating that membership in, or activities surrounding NAFEX, are illegal or quasi-legal, but that would be wrong if so.
All of the pioneers of any fruit grown in North America in the last 50 years were NAFEX members. Every Interest Group President of NAFEX combined make up the authors of most of the fruit reference books and articles you are reading today.
If you havenít heard of NAFEX then you arenít a serious fruit grower...

To All,

Be careful importing trees from outside the USA.  It's not just likely illegal, but the plague of many problem insects can be found to start from heavy import areas, especially from locations around the New York, Pennsylvania area.  Most of these horrible insect problems which started around New York and PA, are impossible to control in these areas and have infected the state of Michigan and Florida and are spreading like wildfire.

I hate to sound like I am being negative against any growers, so please understand that the pupae of these insects can be in the soil or roots of plants you buy from outside your area NOT JUST THE FRUIT.... check out the Spotted Wing Drosophila and Spotted Lanternfly... there are more, as I read the ADGA announcements every week.  There are problem insects from Mexico and Canada, so it would behoove any grower to be on the watch and make plans to get your new varieties from areas that would not cause the plague to spread. PLEASE BE ADVISED.

All the best,

Ms. Figgy

Thank you for your guidance!

Wow, that is very generous of you.  Those are some great varieties.

Fingers crossed that cuttings continue to root and grow.

Looks beautiful!  Unfortunately, the LDA cuttings I grew out last year had bad FMV, and no matter how hard I try, I can't get them back to health.  Will have to start over.
