I bought a bunch (800) of antonovka apple seeds and will be putting them in the fridge for stratification this week

But I would love to trade some to others for any kind of fruit tree seed that would be ok in zone 6a.

I would send you some in the mail and you would send something back. Would cost $.40 for each person I think for a stamp. Would want to do it soon though

I don't have any now but in a year or two I might and I'll keep this in mind for sharing!

My daughter wants to buy a few thousand Romeo or Juliette cherry seeds.  Does anyone know a source?

James has some seeds on the way.  I’m putting the rest in the fridge tomorrow but will set aside 50 in case anyone wants some.  Just pm me.

If you are talking about the University of Saskatchewan dwarf sour cherries, they are propagated by tissue culture.  I have at least one bush of each, but they are not yet bearing.  I could probably get my hands on a few hundred Carmine Jewel seeds (from the same line) by late summer / early fall, but I don't know if they come true from seed.

Scott has some seeds coming to him now.

I went ahead and saved a decent amount if anyone else decides they want some

Btw, I am sending seeds now , even if you won’t be sending me any until later when it becomes available

The more unusual the better if it can handle zone 6
