Hi Xue,
Is grafting guava now better than in Spring?

Sam,
Spring is always best. But I graft all year long.

Crystal seedless guava...A short bushy tree...but yields a lot of fruit.  Xue made this tree for me and I finally got it planted in the ground this year.
Well worth it.  Xue always delivers great quality scions too.

I received mine today in good condition, good packaging, and already wrapped with buddy tapes; thanks a lot Xue!

I've had good success with just cleft graft on guava.  What grafting method do you guys like best for guava?

Most of my guava cleft grafts have flattened graft unions, meaning poor graft unions.
Now I prefer bark graft.

Is there a better way than cleft when scion and rootstock thickness is the same?
Flattening cleft unions just means the scion is growing or thickening faster than the rootstock. 
This may be temporary and the union will grow round later when the rootstock catches up.

Exactly. Most guavas have flattened graft unions for the first year. But eventually they catch up. I have some several year old guava cleft grafts where the graft union is barely discernible any more.
