Grafting Annona reticulata
« on: October 23, 2019, 08:36:16 PM »
Iím wondering if it is possible to graft annona reticulata onto annona squamosa? Iím wanting to do it to get a dwarf effect as well as getting a reticulata that is more drought resistant.

No worries.
Did you graft back in October and what were your results, please do share...

Yes I grafted in November, I grafted A. reticulata scions onto A. Muricata rootstocks and the results were not good. However I know it was because of the scions. The tree had fruited in June and the scions I used were green immature material and they just wilted. I had 3 out of 25 take and they were the 3 more mature scions I used. So Iím going to try again with better timing of scion harvest next time.

I also have a bunch of A. Squamosa rootstocks I hope will be ready to graft next time around, and I will prolly put several different combinations. I will try Rollinia Biriba, A. Reticulata, and Atamoya on both A. squamosa and A. muricata rootstocks as these two are the most prolific baring trees in our area. I will keep everyone posted.
