I know they can be air layered and approach grafted, but can they be grafted using scions/budwood clippings like a mango or avocado tree??? Thanks.

When is the earliest you would generally graft a sapodilla out of curiosity? Mine are probably very near one year old and are just now getting some bark. They haven't really started to push for the year but they seem to be super slooooow, thought not particularly needy.

My prolific sapodilla seems to love the fish emulsion very much. It always push a new growth after i give one dose every 2 weeks. It was a tiny little stick about 1 ft when i purchased it online, in only 2 years it reached 4 ft with about 3 ft widht, healthy and happy, until the tree trimmer company i hired accidentally killed it by drop a huge pine branch on. They did not even admit they did it.....

Iíve cleft grafted them thinner than pencil thickness. Probably around a year old or less. Iíll see if I can find some pics.

I think your rootstock is graftable as long as your scion is the appropriate size. It's been probably 10 years since I've grafted sapodilla but I remember having to work fast because of the sap from the tree being an issue.

Graftable. I've done several that size. I had good success using cleft graft, trimming all but 2 half-leaves on the scion and covering everything with a plastic bag in the shade for 4 weeks.
