Question about grafting
« on: September 27, 2018, 05:17:22 PM »
Hi everyone

I decided to try my hand at the art of grafting.  Now, I have a question.

Do you look at the family or genus name to know if you can graft two plants on one another?

Thank you

Genus here. Seems to be least risky.

There was a post here a while ago about mango on cashew root stock.  Don't know where that went but the story at the time was that it worked.
I am sure if you do a search you will find it.  That pairing will be family and is clearly less common and likely more risk of failing, but suggests not impossible.

Found it,  http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=11727.msg164810#msg164810

Some people need to read before posting. I do, however have some really nice swamp land for sale for those who are intrested. Would be great for those loving to grow pond apple...or a bridge.
