Were you successful in your grafting efforts to add this " Jay Ram " canistel to your collection , and if so how long do you think it would be until bud wood would be available ? Maybe a couple years ?

 William

Yes scions will not be available of this canistel for at least a couple of years.
Oscar,
Have your "Most Outrageously Delicious Canistel Ever" grafts fruited yet?  Do they consistently taste outrageously delicious?  Is scion wood available?  Any info on tree size, vigor and precociousness would be great too, thanks.

Too bad.

Did anyone who grafted a couple of years ago have this variety?

It would be nice to get this growing in different areas.  Preserve the selection.

also interested Oscar, I had a horrible Canistel from Frankies, and now I'm convinced mine I planted from seed will be horrible as well.

On Maui I had great canistel, paired with cheese and crackers was amazing.

That Maui canistel looked like Abiu in shape, so much that my friend gave me an Abiu and I assumed it was the same variety.

Calling all Big Islanders. As far as I know, April is yellow sapote season. Hoping someone can sell seeds of this cv., should be somewhat easier to deal with than scions.
There's no such thing as "ultra tropical"

Still interested.
I moved my potted seedling into a larger sized bottomless pot so it is for all intents and purposes in the ground now.  It is a tad over a foot and a half tall and ready to be grafted.  Looking for a good variety to put on one of the branches while I wait to try the fruit from the seedling.
