This is the third video in a 5 part series on seed saving for fruit and vegetable plants. In this episode (Ep3) I explain how I save the category I call “Wet Seeds” from our food garden to grow more organic plants next season. The next episode (Ep4) details saving “tubers, rhizome, runners, bulbs, suckers” and the previous episode (Ep2) https://youtu.be/DbWgNXIG7RQ was on saving Wet Seed so make sure you see all episodes as all videos in this series are related. Happy gardening, cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

Self Sufficient Me is based on our small 3-acre property/homestead in SE Queensland Australia about 45kms north of Brisbane – the climate is subtropical (similar to Florida). I started Self Sufficient Me in 2011 as a blog website project where I document and write about backyard food growing, self-sufficiency, and urban farming in general. I love sharing my foodie and DIY adventures online so come along with me and let’s get into it! Cheers, Mark ๐Ÿ™‚

Does guavas take also long to fruit from seed?

carol parrish says:

I started an apricot tree from seed. It is still in the small stage. I am a little disappointed to hear that it may not produce good fruit but what the heck. What have I got to loose? Right now it seems like all the animals are getting my fruit anyway. Seems like I can'r win sometimes.

Loren Ipsum says:

Mark, I live west of you, like way out west… and have been collecting and planting fruit tree seeds for several months… its mostly to have SOMETHING grow on our block. I plan on growing our 'nursery bought' plants (lemon, blueberry, pawpaw) in one area and the little seed ones just as decoration more than anything.
I have been lucky enough to have 2 apple trees sprout and a nectarine or peach as well, and even though they wont be true to type, they will still be worth having for the birds and bees ๐Ÿ™‚
I bought Midgem Berry, Lilly Pilly and Burdekin Plum online and I am really happy with those trees which will form a line of natives about 400 metres long. (staggered of course to take advantage of rain run off)
We are in drought out here, so if my seed plants dont take off, I really dont mind.
Thank you so very much for your videos Mark, living out here but having your (almost local) knowledge come into my world, means so much. Cheers, Colleen at Tara

John Mcneill says:

The advantage of growing fruit trees from seed is to produce โ€œroot stockโ€ onto which you graft your know and previously fruited scion. Actually I like to air layer and get same as parent.

Informative video. I will try some of these techniques.

the Wellness Channel says:

My Grandpa taught me that if you beat up your fruit tree pretty good with a big stick or something it can initiate fruiting

Chris Towerton says:

Wow, I've never seen a tree delivered in a box before! ๐Ÿ™‚

Butternut Squanch says:

Yep I have 5 citrus started 7 months old they are only 4-6 inches tall. But I also planted some from Home Depot 5 total 2 months ago and two have flowered and I see little green balls. So I think they have fruited within 2 months they are 3-4 feet tall.
