Apples and stone fruit are the easiest I've grafted.  The hardest I've grafted are persimmons (they are very sensitive to timing).

Some, like avocados, are easy but require extremely fresh wood.
Agree with Barath, Cherimoya's are fairly easy again right timing help's like avocado & eugenia's.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Advice needed for white sapote
« on: May 11, 2020, 10:30:00 AM »
From you picture's it looks like half or more of scion on top is dead and would expect that the cambium contact is not 100% but it is growing and most likely will start to grow better soon. I would  cover that exposed side of root stock at graft. Best of luck growing it out sometimes white sapote's tend to just set there and not grow much that has happened to me and many other people i know who grow w. sapote. Maybe a little extra care a little fertilizer  ;)I would not let any root stock suckers grow!

That's crazy dude best of luck though amazing what people will pay!!!!

I live on very old sand dunes and we have been using Trap line products for quite a few year's ( maybe 6-8yrs.)
and we love them the big trap like in you photo is for gophers but we also use same design trap but smaller which they call there mole trap and it's great for small hole's the little juveniles gophers we have traped this year 43 and counting last year we had 117 they work!!! ;) Best thing about these trap's is that they are all stainless steel and never rust and back wind spring is great too!

It's hard to tell but I would look carefully about six inches up from tie wrap where nodes get closer together  :o ??? :blank:

Agree with acetadomestica , I would pot up or put in ground!!

Very cool Brad, looks like you a good percentage of take's on your graft's well done like the hummer nest too!!
Congrat's on your graft's hope they all make it !! I hate the false start graft's  when they look like there taking then one boom dead( because scion was just living off of stored supply) well any way best of the grafting god's luck to you.

Thanks for taste report Kevin, wow beautiful inside and out with great sounding taste report 8)
I may or someone may have asked this but how long from seed to fruit for you?

14
No way that is diffently not macadamia!!! I have many tree's that isn't it! Kinda looks like green sapote but I don't think they fruit in cluster's like that it's maybe some kind of longan? ???

Nice Kevin.  My plant got in the top septic line and Im in the process of chopping down.  Took some cuttings to save and replant with.
I hate when that happens Brad, I fell for you I had the same happen only was redwood roots !!! Took off both access lid's and it didn't even spell because there was a 6-" layer of root's on top of effluent! Redwood still looks good had to have another redwood in front of house cut down because of drought! Don't get daily fog like we use too :(

What !! You got that Ota!! My new favorite Avocado. Not quite as thick and rich as kahuíulu but just right for me. You got a good scion source to have added all these great Hawaiian avocadoís.
The most kindís I have heard of someone growing outside of the Islands.

Yeah a nice guy from this forum sent me much of the wood.  He had it inspected and all.  Havent seen him on here much in a while.  If you are out there, thanks.  All the trees are looking nice.

The Ota has one of the best growth patterns of all the avocado trees growing here.  Super erect and strong.  Ill be using an interstock on some new plantings here.  This will make an excellwnt interstock to hang more droopy or weak growers and large types onto. 

We will hopefully get another 50+ trees in the ground this year, Im scrambling to get a new block of avocado trees going.  Heres how they look at the moment.


Nice collection Brad, it just keeps growing and looking really good have any of your Hawaiian avo's fruited yet?

« on: April 18, 2020, 10:49:56 AM »
shmojojojo, your peach bloom is beautiful but keep and eye on your loquat and if the dead moves into your branches you'll want cut below a good 10-12" below death to try and stop fireblight!! You could spray with anti-fungal too but that is better before a strike of blight.

Seawalnut, nice little video but grafting existing tree isn't real hard it's just right timing and right scion wood!

Shane, don't give up on your Vermillion it's one of my favorite's but my best one is Champa and I like westree 369 but are small and I do have a Zill-dark grafted to a Westree 369 but has not fruited yet! I have found that some years are better than other's plus older the tree get's they get better. I don't know about Regina's?
