Brad, you got it, no secret. Make sure to cover it with foil so no heat/sun gets to the roots.

Thanks Brad.
Mike, yes I'm sure I could have removed the air layer sooner (4months) but since it was my first avo air layer, I just let it go longer to make sure it had plenty of roots. The trees (2) are doing good now after a month in pot, still have one fruit left that is growing. I also did lychee air layers (14) and if you let it go to 6 months it will have more roots which makes it better when you pot it.

3
Well the rootstock for my air-layers (multi-grafted tree) was from my Hawaiian seedling tree that has been in-ground for about 10yrs so I don't think there will be any problem with root disease or fungus. My tree is over 15ft and I cut it back every year since it grows so well. Only reason I needed to dig it up/remove it was because I planted it to close to a block wall.

Air layering avo seems easy to me. Just leave it for 6 months and it puts root. I didn't want to dig up a large tree that needed to be removed so air layer was a good option. Got 2 out of 3 to work. One was 6 ft tall (1" branch) Hawaiian seedling, other was 8 ft tall (2" branch) jan boyce with some fruits. Probably will take a few more 2" branches before cutting down the mult-grafted tree. Much faster than lychee air layer.

I used plastic soda container, here's some photos of my Jan Boyce (about 8ft air layer).

This will be the last cuttings of the loquats for this year.

1. KT1- "Kosmic" : Cost is $8 each (scion diameter 1/4"-3/8", length 6-8" with 3 leaf nodes) plus shipping
This is my 15yr old seedling loquat that has white/yellow flesh and it is very sweet. If you pick the fruit when it first turns yellow it will have some tartness. When fully ripe it is very sweet with no acid/tartness.
Tree is very productive and consistent ever year with tons of fruits. Sometimes when we have winds, my branches will break off due to the amount of fruits hanging.
Fruit size is medium, tree is strong grower, fruits on each branch (see photos).
This is one of my top 3 white/yellow flesh loquats.

2. Vista White (white flesh): Cost is $4 each (scion diameter 1/4"-3/8", length 6-8" with 3 leaf nodes) plus shipping.

3. Big Jim (orange flesh) : Cost is $4 each (scion diameter 1/4"-3/8", length 6-8" with 3 leaf nodes) plus shipping.

4. Shipping cost is $8.30, USPS priority mail, small flat rate box.

I take Paypal payment only.

Received Brad's combo pack, just ate some yesterday and they were very good.
I cut one Pinkerton but it was not ripe yet so the one I ate was not in my taste review below.
-> update, 6/3/20. Cut another Pinkerton that was ripe, it tasted very good (#1a)

Thanks Brad.

I received my white sapote seedlings and they are in excellent condition.
Thanks.

Received my fruits from Brian, very good. Thank you.

NewGen, you can do either one. Shangri-La is very easy to root the cuttings.
Also grafting it on your Pakistan is just as easy. I have the Black Pakistan, Shangri-La and White Pakistan.

The Shangri-La can be easily grafted to the Black Pakistan or other mulberry plants (also have seedling trees), grows fast.
The White Pakistan is very difficult to root cuttings, and grafting is not easy, need to have good scions and rootstock timing.

Well, in that case, you should get some yellow from me since my plants are getting to big and I need to remove/cut them back. I also have a nice red one someone gave me and that fruit tasted good. It is also a big plant now but I don't hand pollinate so I don't see any fruits on the plant.

Oh, I see. I thought the yellow ones without the thorns were newer types and all the older ones had the spikes.
I'm not much into the DF so don't know enough about these. Brad (spaugh) is a good supplier of the DF and he could help you.

No fruit on mine, you need to hand pollinate it.
I just don't get to the flowers in time and its done usually when I notice it. But my plants are big.
Should be same or similar, its from La Verne nursery.
