- Hello, everyone. I'm new here; allow me to introduce
myself. My name is James, I'm 18 and I hope to earn a
masters in horticulture and open a nursery. I am very
interested in 'new' crops, especially those native to
the USA; I have studied, to some extent, the pawpaw
(Asimina triloba) and the groundnut (Apios americana).
Currently, however, I have a pet interest in the
hawthorns (Crataegus). I am mostly concerned with
their ornamental value, but after recently sampling
the pome of a highly endemic Florida species, C.
lacrimata, I became interested in fruit production.
Which brings me to my question; where can I obtain
that gem called Crataegus schraderiana? I was planning
to try and hybridise it with American species of
superior fruit quality, such as C. mollis, C.
succulenta, C. flava, etc. And of course I want the
fruit themselves! I'm looking for a source of either
seeds or plants; it doesn't matter.
