Anyone growing hardy pecans, hicans, or hickories from Grimo or similar? I'm looking for seed that has had further chances of crossing. I could of course buy seed directly from Grimo, but I was hoping to find somebody growing their cultivars, (or similar northern adapted Carya) nearer to my location and climate in Denver, giving me a better chance of success.

I can't pay that much for seed, since very few are likely to survive here, but let me know if you are interested and want to work something out.

I have a hardy hi-can (hickory-pecan) from Oikos Tree Crops. It's only a foot tall, long time before it'll have nuts, but I bet you could get seeds from Oikos. They're near Kalamazoo, Michigan. Different type of cold climate than Denver, but still a cold climate.

The owner there has been doing interesting crossing and selecting projects for quite a long time.
