<<< Speaking of Pine Nuts I want to grow pine nut trees in my yard.
Any idea where I can get them? >>>
This message from the nuts-msg file I mentioned recently might help:
Here is a brief, incomplete list, of conifers producing edible pine
haven't located pictures of the seeds to see if the resemble each
found it interesting that at least 3 species are considered to be
Araucaria imbricata (Chile pine) Andes
Pinus Cembra (Swiss stone pine) Alps
Pinus Pinea fragilis (Tarentine pine) Italy
Pinus edulis (Pinon pine) North America
Pinus parryana (Pinon pine) North America
Pinus monophylla (Pinon pine) North America
Are you looking for seeds or seedlings?
I'm assuming your local nurseries or agricultural agent can tell you
how well pine trees will grow in your location. Both climate and soil
type are going to have an impact on how well they will grow.
This file in the PLANTS, HERBS AND SPICES section of the Florilegium
has a number of seed and seedling sources mentioned for various
plants. Most likely pine trees aren't mentioned specifically, but it
gives you a number of sources, many with websites, to check out.
