chojubai quince

Post  dick benbow on Sun Jan 01, 2012 11:14 pm

I spent an afternoon following up on the world wide web, where i might find some for purchase. Most who stocked
it had 5-6 inch starts in 4 inch cups. Anyone know where i can find it a bit bigger:)

If it is flowering quince...I've seen one here locally last month in a 40 gallon pot. IIRC, it is about 3 feet all around. I did not ask for the price though. I can check the price next time I visit if you wish, just let me know.

If you found them on the Evergreen garden works website, consider sending Brent and e-mail and ask if he has anything bigger than 4" for sale, he might. If not ask him who might have some larger stock. Its gonna be a treasure hunt either way.

That may very well be a flowering quince, but it ain't no 'chojubai'.

this may be redundant but have you checked with Chris Kirk at Telperion Farms ?

thanks everyone for their input. I have checked with those nurseries mentioned. One has just starts and i'm waiting to hear back from the farm in oregon.

Boy, 88....I wish that was a chojubai and not just a flowering quince. That size I'd never be able to afford it Smile
But there may be someone out there that might be interested so I'm glad you mentioned it. I have about a dozen
different color varieties of flowering quince. Most I keep are in the clump style.

As a follow up to this inquirery, I did find a place in sourthern california that had some nice older red Chojubai.
I received one today and have another on the way next week. The quince was nicely packaged and would be pleased to pass along contact info in a pm as i'm not sure if we can promote any commercial enterprise on the site here. So let me know and i'll pass along the info...... Very Happy

It looks a little ruffed for having spent three days in a box. when it perks up this spring will be happy to take a pic, and share it. It's 26 F outside this morning and it sits at 60F with it's pot in a starterbox with heating coils
