Laguna said they can't sell Gem to the public.
You may need to get scion from a private party to graft it yourself.

Mine was in direct sun. I put it under an atemoya tree recently.

The atemoya tasting will be by invitation everyone must contribute. Ask Mikey for dates and details hes is the co-sponsor of the event. It will be held in La Habra.

What kind of contributions?
Fruits from backyard trees? Fruits from market? Chips and soda?

My one seedling not doing well.





How about yours?

Daintree, you should bare root your tree then cut its tap root where it started to coil.
I did that to my jackfruit last Spring.



This is mine 5 months after removing tap root.

Rebar is not stiff enough. I've seen design like yours drooped.

Do you put nuts at end?
If you prune your vines you can keep them light enough and not bend the rebar. Mine have been in the ground over 6 years and I trim out old vines and keep the structure stable.

I was mistaken about the drooping. The rebar cross was on top of pt post. The top rotted so the cross tilted to one side.

The article linked is about American persimmons, which yours are not.

My Japanese persimmon only get water from runoff from orchid pots 2' away, twice a week. How much watering your tree get Jabo nearby?

i only do one style of pruning on my atemoya and guava, open vase. The V start below knee high. I only keep 2 branches that form the V in the direction I like. The rest I clip off.

As for the longan, I would remove all those suckers.

Leaving a flap would be a Forkert graft.

19
A good grafting time is when the bark peels easily off the cambium. Otherwise you'll spend some time to remove the bark.

20
When you peel the bark off, what's left on the branch is all cambium. No need to line up the scion.

I agree. Lately I've been using potting soil since that is what I have.






I used potting soil on guava 3 weeks ago. Seems fine.




I put new potting soil in pot, trying to alleviate leaves drooping and dropping after cutting branch off tree.

Low and slow release.
Since you added rabbit manure that would be enough.

I air-layered trees with potting soil, the one with fertilizer.
Bag claimed there is enough fertilizer to feed 6 months.

I pot newly cut ones in the same potting soil.

You pot your tree in dirt?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Atemoya Disaster!
« on: August 11, 2018, 12:02:10 AM »
If this season's new growth on the atemoya is six feet or more, you can prune it back to 4-5 feet, and then remove two leaves, starting two leaves back from the cut.

I've experimented with removing leaves from different positions from cut. I've not come up with a good method.

What's the reason for skipping the first 2 leaves after cut?
