Thera, thanks for the information. How is your bud grafted doing now? It looks like it was doing great. Has it fruited for you yet?

I got six fruits last year that tasted excellent like a LZ would taste, but I prefer the original. I was born in SE Asia, so not easy to impress. :)


This is how the it looks now. No fruit due to severe shape trimming and diseases. It is recovering nicely right now as you can see below.

Thanks for the update Thera! Thatís amazing growth from the bud graft. There is potential in the bud graft and I will do some more work to see if we can get the bud to push faster. Keki paste is worth a try.

Hereís a quick update of my Lemon Zest mango bud graft. It has been growing nicely for a potted tree.






Hereís another mango bud graft that is finally pushing after over 3 months being dormant. This one is a Sweet Tart bud graft onto Kent Seedling.

The LZ bud graft is growing vigorously now.



The Sweet Tart bud graft is growing at a snails pace. Iím going to re pot this plant and root prune a bit to get more feeder roots.

Thatís pretty much the method I used except I chose a bud that was swollen.
