Tropical Fruit Discussion / Longan graft took
« on: July 15, 2017, 11:20:54 AM »
Very happy my Longan graft took out of two graft's one took which makes me very happy ;D A member sent me 3-different varieties of longan. I didn't have room for all the scions so I grafted two on seedlings i had and shared other scion's with friend Jack S. who grafted other scions to his two trees which where outside. This was a veneer graft done in first week of March.

That's a little of my 2.4 acres of planting over 34yrs. too bad I wasn't into fruiting sub-tropical & tropicals way back then but any way that's where I'm coming from enjoy! 8)
