Hello Everyone,

Is anyone growing varieties of honey locust that have been improved for pod production, such as Milwood or Calhoun? I know such varieties exist, but they don't seem to be common.

I am looking for some of those varieties. It is hard to find. Have you had any success?

I've also been trying to get my hands on these. Like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Anybody who owns one could make a killing propagating them for sale. Or some easy side cash selling scionwood
