Dekopon Seeds- True to Parent?
« on: February 28, 2018, 08:22:22 PM »
Are Dekopon seeds true to the parent?
I have a number of seedlings and want to know if they are worth keeping.
I don't want to invest many years into them only to be disappointed.

Thank You.

Yes they are but why bother when you can get a grafted tree? I pulled up
my seedling when I could get the budwood.

Will the seedling fruit in less than five years?

No, only if you are lucky.
