Grafted mango tree question?
« on: July 19, 2019, 09:24:29 AM »
What would happen to a large growth mango tree variety on a compatible root stock if the same mango tree variety were to be grafted above the large growth mango tree's graft to replace it? Would this be considered a double graft to dwarf a large tree?

I read an article online about how to dwarf a mango tree. A root stock was cut by the base and the top part was bark grafted to it. The tree turned into a dwarf. http://www.filentrep.com/agri-business/how-to-make-a-dwarf-mango-tree.htm

I also read about the Indian double graft to dwarf a mango tree on one of the treads on this forum. It seems similar to grafting the same tree onto itself.

I must try the low bark graft to see if its true.
