Grafting inga
« on: July 17, 2017, 09:16:51 PM »
I have a friend with an inga tree that is 25 years old and has yet to fruit.  I read in another thread where Oscar commented that some inga species are self sterile and some species are able to hybridize.  I will try to get some leaf and tree pics loaded in the next few days to hopefully lead to an identification of the species.  I am wondering if I could just graft some other tree's scions to it to provide cross pollination?

Don't see why it wouldn't work. Although grafting on this species is practically unknown, as it grows so fast from seed or cuttings.

My husband grafted an Inga vulpina scion (from Oscar) onto a two year old Inga vera seeking tree. Graft took and is growing well. It's certainly worth trying.
