Free Maha Chanok scion, local pick up only!
« on: February 06, 2012, 07:23:47 PM »
Hey everyone, I finally attempted to inarch my Maha Chanok mango with my Manilla mango in an attempt to create a Maha Chanok mango with multiple rootstocks.  I decided to top my Maha Chanok to get the hormones going so I have a scion about 12 inches long.  I already cut off all the leaves and the scion is about 1/2 inch thick.  The scion is not fully swollen, only partially, so it may not be the best scion to use for grafting but its free to a good home.  I live in San Diego California.

Ah, wish it was not local pick up :P. Congrats on whoever makes the scion take :).
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Aw, missed it by 30 minutes.

If you have any Maha Chanok seeds that you want to get rid of, please let me know =)

Thanks,

Herman
