Kelly, there is no good source unfortunately. Bay Laurel sells a few
propagated by Dave Wilson Nursery, for instance Indian Cling and Free
and Heath Cling (but, I believe you need to special order the last one
by November). Trees of Antiquity also sells several. Vintage
Virginia Apples has recently started carrying a nice collection. It
is not clear if their Oldmixon Free is the original one or not, there
have been conflicting reports; I have that variety from them but it
has not fruited yet. I have had to graft many of mine from various
sources, including the ARS. That is where I got Salwey for example.
If you know how to graft peaches (they are hard to graft), I can send
you scions this spring.
