Hi Gus/Amanda,
I have just ordered a Rio Grande Cherry Tree (and Cranberry plants) from Diggers, so will let you know if it arrives.
I planted a Stella Cherry tree 2 months ago, but am not sure if it will fruit due to required coldchill.

Hi Trudy, don't know if you are intentionally running the gauntlet or you didn't see that quarantine laws are now restricting rio grande amongst others. You may want to save your money if it is the latter.

A message from The Diggers Club

You will very soon receive the Winter Garden catalogue that has just been mailed to you. There are a great range of new plants, edible and ornamental to choose from including berries, salvias, potatoes, strawberries, citrus, bulbs and a new range of new drought resistant shade trees.

Unfortunately after going to print Quarantine WA advised us of newly restricted plants which we can no longer send to your state. These include:

WJAM ROSE APPLE

WCHRI CHERRY OF THE RIO GRANDE

WGUC GUAVA

WSTG STRAWBERRY GUAVA

WBTR BRAZILIAN TREE GRAPE

WYEG YELLOW GUAVA

WMYCT MYRTUS TARENTINA

There are many other fantastic new plants still available. For more information you can contact your local Quarantine Dept on info@agric.wa.gov.au, and phone (08) 9334 1800.

We hope you enjoy the catalogue!

Tim Sansom

Director of Horticulture

I have finally managed to get my hands on some Cherry rio grande seeds, but am now getting impatient with the sprouting. I have kept them indoors in a warm room with plenty of water, but after 3 weeks, not a sausage. Are these guys difficult to get moving or am I just too impatient? I have waited so long to get these seeds I certainly don't want to screw it up now!

What colour are COTG seeds?
Still no luck getting these things to sprout and am now starting to wonder if they are the right seeds. In a description I read they are white but mine are brown.

Apparently there are now new varieties of this species.I wouldn't want to cross the rio grande but some references are not glowing about its taste.

huh? I think the involucrata is responsible for bastardising the reputation of COTRG. I thought the aggregata is the popular, tasty species?

They are synonyms and they are nearly all the common type which can be ordinary, with the exception of some improved yank ones.

ineresting. Perhaps they are overrated. I have heard glowing reports of them, admittedley mainly from American websites. I was sure people on this site liked them too though.

They are still widely favoured above Grumixama for taste, but the Grum beats it pants down in the cropping department. I think Kath even talks about it on a video on the COTRG page.

Grumichama is reported to improve greatly in quality after about 3 years of bearing. Perhaps the COTRG will do that too.
