Ok, I have a long list of people that want these.  I am raising the price slightly due to high demand and limited supply. 

Its 25$ for a medium flat rate box filled with 20+ fruits.

13$ goes to shipping and I pay paypal on top of that.

Do not use peroxide or bleach on plants, they will kill the tissue then the whole plant. Copper products use with caution, if possible spray the scion few days before you cut it. Otherwise just match the diameter and graft on green bark.
For us gardeners I don’t think I ever need to go back to cleft graft for mango again. The grave/coffin graft is advantages with larger rootstock, larger total cambium contact surface area, and one long wrapping from toe to head cover the whole scion sealing it from dried out. For seedling rootstock I just wait until it is fully growth and ready to flower, or to 1” or more dia trunk for grave/coffin. It is easy to do, fast bud pushing,  gives high rate of success, and maybe ready to hold fruits the next season (might need fruit support to protect the union).  Based on 7 grafts using Water Zill method done early this year on a 4" dia HD Manila tree, most of the shoots today are about 7/10” or larger at the base, 24” tall, and so I think these shoots will be ready to hold fruits next season.

I've had better take rates when I wipe down the spot on the host tree with a captan solution and soak the scions in a captan solution for a minute or two before grafting. When I haven't done this I've seen a lot more fungal issues on the grafts.
Buy some organza bags and bag them. Don't think there's any other way.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Asian guava problems.. Please help!!

I have an Asian guava tree in my yard. It stays small and is very productive. I love the fruit as well. However, the fruits I harvested recently had worms in them and also had some black spots. I had to throw them all away. Is there anything, beside bagging the fruit, that I should do to stop this from happening?  Sprays? Systemic stuff?

Hello fellow members...

I successfully grafted a dream _____ (fill in the blank with atemoya, chirimoya or whatever you see fit) onto a chirimoya rootstock last.... may I wanna say or some time around there...

It's grown quite a bit eventhough it is in a pot and the person who was supposed to take care of it nearly left it to die of thirst while I was taking a trip to the tropical coast of Spain in search for other tropicals to bring back home.

Anyway... I'm very happy with how much it has grown so far.... much less with it's shape and I really don't know how to prune it. It seems it doesn't want to grow in 3 dimensions but only 2, which makes it looks like a peacock's tail...

I'm afraid that any storm that comes by might totally uproot it or break it or twist it down to the trunk.

What do you guys suggest???

Wondering if anyone has had success grafting this tree.
