Yes it's that time of year again
Anyone out there interested in swapping some some scions . I have at least ten types of French apples however not sure of the names of most of them
Also some pears ( however they have issues )
Plums ( Claude reine and mirabelle )
Walnuts difficult to graft however
Medlar -very easy to graft on to Hawthorne
What do I want ? Anything I don't have really apples preferably although plums would be nice too
My dream would be some Russian stuff like the sweet quince

I'm not sure what makes a quince qualify as a Russian quince, but I have some very old trees here that have fruited well this year.  The fruit is hard as rock, furry and needs to be cooked before it's eaten, but if you want seeds or anything let me know.

The russian cultivars, edible raw, are available on fruitiers.net as a swap.

You can also try to go trough greffer.net.

Hi David, I've got a young Sparta apple tree if you're interested.  It's red skinned turning almost to purple by the time it's ripe, with crisp white flesh, usually ready here in Yorkshire by mid-September, and very tasty.  But I've never grafted before, so if you (or anyone else) would like scions, I'd need full instructions

I have several different apples. Most of which came with the house so I do not know their names, however I do have

1 belle de boskoop (cooker) 
2 a large eater, green flushed red, is very sweet and holds it's shape when cooked.
3 Lord Lamborne (eater)
4 another sweet eating apple, cox type but exact parentage unknown.

Plums

1 Victoria
2 Althans reine claude
3 green reine claude
4 a Yellow mirrabelle very sweet and juicy
5 Red mirrabelles, harder cooking plums not sour.

Quince

Vranga, it's a new tree so not had fruit but I doubt it's what you are after.

Pears
1 a Sweet soft pear plump in shape golden green in colour when ripe late september to early october here
2 a hard pear rounded in shape, dark green and slightly russeted, late october.

I am in Northern Denmark for your information.

I would love a medlar I have selfseeded hawthorns all over the place!

Cornusmas.eu = Carya plant nursery in Poland usually has grafted trees of Miagkoplodnaja (Wolgogradskaja) for sale. They will send you a catalogue on demand via email. A couple of weeks ago I placed an order for our local fruit enthusiast club (in Slovenia) and we definitely had some Wolg. in the package as well. Their prices and postage are very reasonable. The plant/packaging quality is OK, not super awesome, but not bad either. (For really tremendous packaging you need palmi.bg, they pack plants carefully like it's nuclear fuel

Going to have to say no to the victoria, I just went and looked at it and I have a nasty suspicion it's got silverleaf, don't want to send you any of that! But if you have any apples that are a late long keeping sort or any russets I would be interested in them as well.

A very impressive list Jesse
I even have some of the pears you are after. Unfortunetly whilst I see from your link you reside in the USA the idea is on this thread an exchange within Europe . There are all sorts of laws and regulations covering the exchange of scions by post between europe and the USA as it's very easy to exchange pests and deseases also . I would not want your self to end up on the wrong side of the authorities who have the power to cut down your trees on the nearest hint you have imported some contraband material . Maybe you could start a thread
Covering the USA I am sure you could get folks to join in
