[NAFEX] Canadian hardy cherries/Honeyberries

I'm not sure if you got the email I sent you, but I would like to try some honeyberry seeds. I think I read on the U. of Saskatchewan website that they can sometimes bear fruit the second year from seed, which sounds good for an impatient person like me.

The cherries sound fun, but I'll pass. These are hybrids between full-size sour cherry trees with nice big sweet fruit, and tiny cherry bushes with small sour fruit, so the seedlings could be anything. They might be big trees with tiny fruit. I'm sure experimenting would be fun, but I don't have room for it.

Hi folks,

Both the U. os S. Cherries and all the Honeyberries/Haskaps I've tried are stunning!  I can't say that enough!

As for Cherry propagators, there is a list associated with the U of S website that you can find (I don't off hand know where as I just buy from the catalogues I have- sorry to rub that in!).  Prairie Plant Systems at www.prairieplant.com, www.jefferiesnurseries.com, and www.saskatoonfarm.com would be my top places to start looking for sources most likely to ship to the U.S.  DNA Gardens is indeed going/gone out of business.

It looks like I will have a good crop of cherries and honeyberries this year and I am willing to ship cherry pits/stones or seeds to interested parties.  The availability of cherries this year is somewhat based on whether the extreme drought we are still having breaks, if it doesn't I may have to remove fruit again.  If you are interested in seeds or pits, please contact me off list.  Both are very easy to grow from seed, but I can't give you any input on uniformity of the resulting plant yet.
