I saw Sherwood a couple of years ago ... at a meeting of SFF somewhere down
south.  He must be pushing 90.

  Thanks for the update.  When I requested a list from him he wrote (in
shakey handwriting)  he no longer did this.  He has apparently either
regained some health and energy or didn't want to deal with mail order.

    I visited Sherwood Akin on my way home from the June '04 SFF meeting in
Arkansas. His inventory of plants in his nursery is still extensive for a
person his age working alone. In recent years he is devoting a lot of time
propagating citrus, especially cold hardy selections. He addressed this in
the article submitted and printed in the most recent issue of POMONA. His
travel is limited because if the care required by his wife, an Alzheimer's
patient.

    In regards to "Rush Chinknut", it has been dropped from his inventory of
plants.

    Sherwood is not" on line" but this message has been coordinated with him
by phone and meets with his approval.

      I tried to get some citrus material from Mr. Akin a few years back.
He is out of the plant business due to age.

        Victor,

        The advertisement in Pomona (published 20 years ago) was from J.S.
Akin in Sibley, LA.  I have done some more research and found this entry in
the Fruit, Berry and Nut Inventory, 3rd edition




        Sherwood’s Greenhouses, PO Box 6, Sibley, LA  71073,  318-377-3653



        This is the only source listed for Rush Chinknut from 1988 to the
present.

        Mark:
              The chestnut does not seem to do well in southeast Texas but
the chinquapin does, maybe the hybrid would also. Can you tell me which
nursery had the add?      Victor
