Foundation Seed Stock-Ecos

Since 1979 when I first started my nursery I have discovered, rediscovered, planted and created from scratch many useful food plants and timber trees for agriculture, horticulture and forestry industries. Instead of cultivar development I focused first on the population rather than the individual. The result of that experimentation lead me to develop populations of many woody plants that are genetically diverse  that can be grown 'true' from seed in a wide variety of environmental conditions.

This foundation stock seed represents some of the most healthful and versatile  woody perennials and perennial vegetables. The focus was to find plants that require minimal care yet provide a high level of nutrition not found in cultivated plants much like a wild plant. Each plant that I harvest seeds from is selected for its high yields, disease resistance as well as its ease of use as it finds its way to its culinary end.  The plants grown from my foundation stock plants can provide both a living population to breed cultivars from or to use as is and reproduced ad infinitum from seed  as a population as a land race. Reproduction by seed allows the population to adapt over time due to climate changes or disease pressures. This makes cultivar development or even to use as a single 'strain' or land race a field of possibilities that can never become genetically stagnate.  This is the ECOS Oikos Tree Crops Foundation Seed Stock. If you are a nursery or other seller of plants and/or seeds see specifics on selling our Ecos Oikos Tree Crops selections, cultivars and seed strains please see our terms and conditions before check out. Cultivars are offered with the seeds include scions, cuttings, budwood and roots or tubers. This will allow you to continue the varietal selection that I created here at my farm as well as make it available to others either as a nursery or use in a farming situation without the cumbersome patent system which is frequently ignored in the nursery industry anyway. For specifics on cultivar requests without seeds: contact Kenneth Asmus under contact on the front page of the website.

Seeds are shipped immediately along with the scions or cuttings during the dormant season. No international seed shipping including Canada is allowed.  Above image from my farm: Manna Oak.
