UPDATE:   Pulled one of my larger Dekopons today.




The paper towel it is sitting on is 6 inches wide.  It was very good tasting, though may have been even better if left to hang a little longer.  Not bad at all for first fruit from a young tree.  I have several that I have picked and have in storage in a cool place, that I will be sampling every 10 days or so to see if the flavor changes.

The first time I tried to root cuttings from a Pakistan I got 3 dormant cuttings and
2 of them rooted. I have tried a couple times with cuttings from non dormant cuttings and
I have not had any root?

You know you will get 2 tons of fruit next Spring if you don't prune. Doesn't your tree stay
dormant for the whole Winter in Alabama? Where I am the warmer temps the Mulberry trees start to flush
new leaves and are sort of semi dormant depending on the temps. I have had Mulberry trees flush flowers in
January and then we have a frost and I don't get much fruit. Each year different mulberries perform better
for me. I would get your fruit in the Spring and prune afterwards and get more fruit.

June 23 grafts pushed nicely:



Are you using RBII panels as open bottom container or covering the bottom somehow? I planted a Holiday and Alphonso with open bottoms recently and wondering if I did the right thing.

Never buy an imported Chilean Cherimoya if you want a positive impression of the fruit.
That's what was holding me back... haha. Too bad I don't have a reason to go to SoCal anymore :(

Happy Holidays, Mike!  Is your nursery business doing okay?

Is there any advantage/disadvantage to cutting it back during the winter while dormant?

i will mulch it heavily . What fertilizer do you recommend ?

I'm an N freak.  My trees get a Polyon or Osmocote 18-4-9 with micros.  I also use Osmocote Indoor/Outdoor which is a 15-9-12 with a great micros package.  Probably a better NPK ratio balance. https://www.amazon.com/Osmocote-Outdoor-Smart-Release-8-Pound-Fertilizer/dp/B00GTDGMHC/ref=asc_df_B00GTDGMHC/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=216531775325&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=17903867832728664886&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9025584&hvtargid=pla-379806270924&psc=1
