I found scions for every apple I could think of, and lots of variations of common apples. I found 5 different MacIntosh apples. I found 5 different Rome apples. I found ancient varieties of apples that were grown 100 years ago, like Esopus Spitzenurg, Wagener, and Ben Davis. I found new varieties like Honeycrisp. I found scions for rootstocks like M.111, M.9, and M.7.... What does one do with a scion of a rootstock? I found a 2005 version of the catalog which explains which are seeds and which are scions, that useless info isn't in the 2018 catalog version. I found many pages for seeds and scions of serveseii apples and I found multiple item numbers for Niedzwetzkyana scions on page 61, why so many and why no explanation of why so many.
I find this is awesome, such a huge resource.
But looking thru all those pages of what I think are apples, mostly crab apples from everywhere on the earth, but you can't figure out what you get, how many does 589287, the niedzwetzkyana apple, get you. If you need say 6, there's no place on the order page to put the quantity. But then you might get 6 packs of 25. I guess that as you pick up some experience you'll learn a little of what all that variety is.
But my first problem, nowhere in the 84 pages do I see a quantity of 100 seeds of 4 different serveseii apples. But I did find the niedzwetzkyana apple which I think I'd rather have than a 100 of 4 different unknown apple varieties. Or; was my first problem that the serveseii apples you guys discuss; aren't the many pages of free serveseii apples that I found.
edit:
I mentioned about the use of a rootstock scion. I finally realized that last spring when I grafted a piece of M.7 to a M.111 that I was using a scion of M.7. But I think it's a truism that every graft needs one rootstock.
By the way; here's the cherry catalog.
