Tropical Fruit Discussion / Picture of my Mom's Maha
« on: June 02, 2012, 06:14:49 PM »
Here is a picture of my mom's Maha which I just planted.  Finally had a break in the rain in Boynton Beach.  Hopefully the HOA Gestapo won't see it and make her take it out.  Behind it is a Jaboticaba.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / Fieldcraft Topgrafter Tool in Action

This grafting tool is awesome..  Here are pictures of Leo at Exotica Nursery in Vista grafting Mulberries.  Every cut seemed effortless and were a perfect match.  Leo says it works best on hard or thicker wood.  Here is a link to Raggett Industries.


Tropical Fruit Discussion / My Attempt at Grafting Mamey Sapote
« on: March 29, 2012, 04:32:01 PM »
I received my Mamey scions today from Frankies Nursery.  Here are pictures of my attempt at grafting my 4ft. seedling.  Lynn from Frankies suggested I try a cleft and side veneer graft on the same rootstock.  She said its more difficult for larger diameter rootstock to take and doing both might increase my chances.  I've got a third scion which I plan on using on JF's smaller seedling.  I accidentally broke off the only two leaves while trying to put it in my overcrowded portable greenhouse.  I'm hoping that won't be an issue.
