Robert,

looking good...I hope they push for you...but heed this advice...
they can take months to push....or less than 2 weeks...

They can also stay green, and still fail.

They can also push new growth, then die back, only to resprout and survive....and of course, to make matters more confusing, they can push out growth, and then die back, only to fail.

also I'd also use cleft grafts exclusively. (Its my fav graft anyway...lol)

From the first grafts I attempted earlier this year, Selma took as did Behl (very excited about that) and Honeyhart.  Holding out hope for Pierce as well, unfortunately I didn't have the union tied very well and a graft that had leafed out and flowered was pulled out by a bird.

Here's my first attempt at grafting Sabara Jaboticaba.  Below are photos of the progression over 4 months time.  I guess it turned out pretty good.   ::)

Thank you Adam and PltdWorld!  It hasn't leafed out still... just a stick.  I assume it's still alive  :-\.  The rootstock was also a small leafed Sabara that has yet to flower on it's own.  I was determined to get it to fruit one way or another.  ;D

eNorm, way to go on your grafts, did you graft onto existing  tree in ground or in pot? 8)

Adam, thank for the advice, I'm not giving up on those grafts yet ;) 8)

Thank you Thera and Scott.  It's in large 20 or 25 gallon pot.  I'm still debating whether to put it in the ground or not.  Best of luck on your grafts Scott.

Great job!!! I just germinated a few Jaboticaba seeds that are about 3 inches tall with 3 sets of leaves....I hope some day to get to where you are!! Congrats

Thank you MarinFla.  Good luck on your little seedlings.

xshen,

I used a cleft graft and bagged the grafted branch.

Congrats on all your successes everyone.
Amazing job, Norm.  Good thing you kept that scion lengthy, may not have gotten fruits otherwise ;D  How difficult was it to cut into that thick scion?

Adam, here are a couple photos of the Kimber Custard apple grafts, the green one pushed out after 3 months, the red came out within a few weeks. The red jabo took a few months but put out this big flush, not sure if it will keep, but I did do cleft grafts on all of them.

Scott, I had quite a few failures, most of the sugar apples I tried didn't make it. Cherimoya and Atemoya are fine, but the scions I got from Florida didn't make it, they are just on a different schedule. I still have a Florida hass from the spring that is still green but no buds, also some Illamas. I brought back white sapote, and loquat scions that I got from Adam in Florida that all took. I guess we can just keep trying.

"Boldly forward" all we have to loose is graft's! ;) Mark, what was the name of the W. Sapote that you got Adam, grow it well so I can trade you scion wood in future! ;)

Mark

I wonder if you got the Peluche loquat? It's supposed to make fruits that are very large and very sweet!  Maybe the largest loquat I've seen...but I think they're susceptible to russeting.

I had that cultivar and another called Avri.

I hope they do well for you.

Adam, the Peluchi or Feluchi  and Avri loquats took fine,  I can't wait to taste them.

The white sapotes I got from you were Skipper, and Smathers, they both took also. The wooly leave sapotes budded out right away and then died back.

I also got one of the Giant Mexican sugar apples to take. The other annonas eventually didn't pull through. Here are the photos of some of them. Thanks again.
