I am looking for a diverse collection of hardy apricot seeds. Anybody out there have fruiting apricots in zones 3 or 4, would like Canadian sources but would try Montana, North Dakota or northern Minnesota. I would pay a small amount for 25 seeds to cover postage and your time. You can post and I will PM you with interest and details or you can PM me. I am trying to put together a population that I can select from for local adaption and fruit. Thanks

I've been planting local apricot seed for a few years now (some from a huge old tree that winter killed 2 years ago), I'll pop by a another good tree tomorrow and see if there are any pits under it still, as it was a good year for hardy apricots. I have a "Capilano" tree that should fruit next year, that I'm planning to graft onto my seedlings. I also have access to manchurian apricot pits which will make great rootstock material. The University of Saskatchewan has some cultivars you could probably get seed from (like Morden 604), if you ever poke around there let me know, I'll join you!
