It’s a long shot but has anyone tasted a Slatton Limbertwig.
Never heard of that.
I have one in the ground but it’s gonna be a while. I know Podpiper has but haven’t seen him around these parts in a while. We’re you ever able to obtain Rose LT?
The last I heard from Podpiper his work was keeping him extremely busy. I grafted Slatton LT last spring and got good enough growth to plant one in the orchard last fall and like you it will be awhile until it fruits. I should have used a piece of the scion to make a limb graft. The Rose LT is still on my want list.
Only one source for Rose LT- hope that opens up at some point. Maybe he’s waiting to try to confirm ID but don’t know how he’d do that unless there’s someone alive who knows it.
Yes at some point we just have to trust that some of these rare Limbertwigs are correctly named. So much confusion As an example I’ve seen Red Limbertwig and Old Fashion Limbertwig listed as the same tree but my Red Lt from Big Horse Creek is a normal branched tree while my Old Fashion LT from Century Farms has the limber branches. Perhaps someday with cheaper DNA testing the Limbertwig familys can be sorted out.
