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 sell fruit 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:

all my best,

I second the recommendation. I have bought items half a dozen times from Grimo's and have always been extremely happy with my order.

The other resource for grafted nut trees, located in the US, is John Britain at Nolin River Nut Farm.

Grimo is good, and I certainly recommend them, but my experience leans towards Nolin River being best in show.

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.
