Good rootstock for Abiu ?.
« on: August 20, 2018, 03:49:15 PM »

I was wondering if someone has successfully grafted abiu onto another Pouteria species ?.

Thanks

I tried to graft abiu on pourteria multiflora and nothing. Now I'm trying to graft approach  abiu on pourteria campechana.

Has anyone tried grafting Abiu on Starapple?  Even those they are formally in different genera it seems like they are more similar as fruit than many Pouteria.

If I were looking for another rootstock, I would be inclined to try Pouteria torta -- however, it is probably more uncommon than abiu so probably not a great candidate for most people.  The fruit seems more similar to abiu than most of the common Pouterias so I am guessing it may be a closer relative.
