Honey Locust Grafts

from 30.00

J. Russell Smith gushes over the potential of the Honey Locust in his book "Tree Crops-A Permanent Agriculture".  He says " My prize (he organized a competition for the best honey locust pods in 1926) Honey Locust of 1926 had 29% sugar. A decade later the enterprising John W. Hershey.. found and named the following Honey Locusts after the farmers who had them growing on their land: MIllwood, 36% sugar; Calhoune 38.9% sugar.  Of course Hershey is named after John Hershey, who probably found it somewhere in his travels.

You will find many unnamed selections from John W. Hershey's old nursery in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. These were selected primarily for their pod size by Zack Elfers of Nomad Plants. They are offered here as JWH2-41.

Cooper was selected by Taylor Malone in Kentucky, large pods, productive plant.

Heather was discovered by Tyler Omand and is from a hedgerow in Maine- skinny pods, but very productive.
