Just wanted to share a new Sweet Tart veneer and cleft graft.
Thank you Behlgarden for the beautiful budwood, your help and advise.  Thank you also for sharing your beautiful garden.

The middle on with the multiple branches, any reason you didn't split those into 3 or 4 separate grafts?
Good luck, hope they all take.

I had Lionking witness my take on multiple branch graft, if grafted correctly they do take. Another reason was that multiple branched graft had lot of swelled buds under the branching out, they might take as well. Its always fun to experiment. I am confident that these would take, all depends what rootstock is doing.

I agree with Behlgarden.  That multiple branch piece of budwood was such a beautiful piece that it would hurt to split it up.  I too am confident it will take.
Will most definitely keep everyone updated.
Will post pictures as soon as I start seeing growth....
Thanks again Behl

Hope you have success with your grafted Sweet Tart. From my own experience, mango grafts are most successful from late July to Early September when temperatures are highest and both the scion and rootstock are in full bud swell and growth mode.

Here is a recent photo of my Sweet Tart mango tree blooming on manila rootstock. I grafted this Sweet Tart in Late July 2016 and it has grown quite nicely over the past 1 1/2 years. The Bottom Photo is my Coconut Cream Mango Tree which was grafted to a manila seedling in late August 2016.

Is it normal for leaves to be that yellow during this time of year in CA?

Wanted to give an update.  So far all is going well.
The Sweet Tart grafts are starting to push some growth.
The multiple branch budwood piece is showing growth.  Iím excited about this graft.
Itís just the start so will give more updates as I see more growth.
Here are a few pictures.

Awesome to hear
Have you been growing this outside or inside green house?
I wish I can buy some scions soon. Too impatient to wait until late July.

Thatís awesome! Sounds like you and Behl have had some success with early season mango grafting. Weíve had warmer weather these last 2 months compared to last year if I recall correctly, at least in my area.

I started off by keeping it outdoors in part shade.  Once I started seeing growth pushing,  I stared giving it full sun for about 6 to 8 hrs.
I did bring it inside at night only because it was below 60í when first grafted.

Hey Khaled,

     Hope all is well!
  Credit goes to Behl.  I donít think success would have came without his help.
Yes,  the weather has been great and itís only going to get better  :D
