For the last few years, the Davis repository has not fulfilled my requests for germplasm, as most other requestors have experienced. The rumor is they have been overwhelmed with requests, and felt the system was being abused by overzealous or non-serious inquirers who could find many of the varieties at commercial sources.
I was amazed when I received a huge package from them today with everything I asked for this past year: cuttings of rare peaches, nectarines, cherries, figs, and persimmons. Thick diameter on the sticks. I hustled to get the figs into a sterilized rooting bin. The rest are chilling in my fridge.
