Title: VALENCIA ORANGE SEEDS FOR SASE OR TRADE FOR LIME OR GRAPEFRUIT SEEDS
Post by: BEEMAN on February 07, 2018, 04:30:16 PM
I have a few extra Valencia seeds from my trees. If anyone is interested in getting some send me a PM and a SASE and I will be glad to send you some to grow. I have sprouted some of these and they have sprouted well and some are already two to four inches high. They are growing well. I did it as an experiment  and saw the sprouting process on  the internet.  If anyone would like to try growing Valencia Oranges from seed let me know.

Can you advise when you mailed you SASE? Have not gotten it yet. Will be leaving to go to Florida to catch a Disney cruise ship this coming Wednesday and wanted to get your seeds mailed before then.

Well I received a nice package today from Beeman. It was like a Christmas stocking....a delight to open.
 I pulled out not one but two wildflower seed packs. I will plant to help feed the bees.

 I found  a paper towel with a generous amount of Valencia seeds.
 That was wrapped with a well documented set of directions for getting them started.

And a plastic jar loaded with seeds for growing Castor flowers. Along with an information sheet including a picture of the flower.  Which is very pretty. I had never seen one before.

Thank you so much. I will keep you posted on the progress.

Glad you received the seeds. Wish you well with them. Just tilled my garden and cut down some fruit trees that were killed by the extreme cold weather this winter.

Hey Beeman, when growing citrus from seeds, don't you get the rootstock and not the same plant that you started with? I always thought the seeds grew the root stock, then you had to graft in what you wanted the fruit to be. Just curious.
