I have received several inquiries re: certain types of nuts, persimmons, pawpaws etc. Ernie Grimo who is a contemporary and lives in Niagra-on-the-Lake, Ontario along with his daughter have a nice web site where they sellfruit and nut trees and I would like to recommend them. I have known Ernie over the years as both a member of the NY Nutgrowers club and as a friend of an old, deceased friend, John Gordon. So here is the web site:
These sites look pretty awesome, but I'd love to try some of Paul's tactics and plant some trees from seed. Though I understand that most apples have been grown on root stock for so long that true seeds don't exist anymore. Does anyone have any suggestions, I can't seem to find a good source for reliable seeds. Nobody local can be sure if their seeds are true.

Grimo's actually sells seed as well. I purchased 20lbs of black walnut and butternut seed from them last fall. They can provide seed of specific varieties and I was able to get seed of desired strains that I certainly would not have been able to obtain any where else.
In growing anything from seed remember good parents increase your chance of getting good offspring.
