I am wondering if anyone is interested in exchanging scion wood this January?

I'm looking for:
APPLES - heirloom varieties
CHERRIES - self pollinating varieties
BLACK WALNUTS - any type
ALMONDS - any type

I have:
GRAPES: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon

I have some Snow Apple/Famuse (sp?) trees on my property. They're an old heirloom variety if you're interested. I'm doing some climate control experiments (i.e. creating micro-climates) in my garden and would love to try some of those grapes!

I've got a Montmorency Cherry. I also have Chicago fig cuttings. I need some hican or a good variety of hickory. I have other fruit and nut trees but not sure which are still patented.

Dave, I'd like to try some snow apple cuttings or even some seeds. Apples of antiquity says they usually grow true to type from seeds. What are you looking for? I can get most any MO natives in addition to the figs and cherries. I need to figure out which of my nut and fruit trees and grapes are patented. Oh I've got Keifer pear. It can't still be patented.

I am just now getting interested in the topic of grafting trees. Do you guys have any resources I could further my education on the subject with?? To the original poster, I have TONS of black walnuts on my property that I could collect from if I knew the proper way to collect scion wood.

Ken, Im very interested in obtaining some fig and cherry. I hear I can graft fig on a mulberry? I have tons of mulberries to experiment with as well....

I've got lots of Cherry. They're very low care too . The figs will depend on how many branches survive the winter. I'm still learning grafting. I'll read up on when and how to ship scion wood. What part of the world are you in?

I'm in western MO. Nevada, MO. 90 miles south of KC. I've only done a little grafting so far. The University of MO has a lot of good info on grafting.

Not sure about the figs on Mulberry. I think they're related. It'd be interesting. Actually figs grow very well from cuttings, so no real need to graft.

I'm just getting into grafting as well, however, I've found a lot of good information on a number of different university agricultural extension pages: Mizzou, TAMU, Perdue, etc. Perdue has a good page on grafting black walnuts: https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/fnr/fnr-105.html. The hard part for me has been finding scion wood and local grafters. Don't get discouraged, it took me a few weeks to find anyone.

Ken, I'd be interested in some of the cherries and chambourcin grape if you have any.

Eric, I'd also be interested in a couple black walnut scions.

I'd be happy to trade grapes, but I'm not sure how either Malbec or Cabernet Sauvignon would do in Missouri. I don't know anyone that's had much luck with either in Missouri. (I used to live near St. Louis.) I moved down to Texas about a year and a half ago so most of my trees and bushes aren't established enough to take cuttings yet. That said, I do have quite a few yucca seeds if anyone is interested.
