Pitangtuba on Surinam?
« on: February 02, 2013, 02:28:11 PM »
Are Pitangtuba and Surinam Cherry close enough to graft one on the other?

Hi Patrick,
Don't know if they are graft compatible...but, I was thinking of crossing them ;)
Time is like a river.
You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.
Enjoy every moment of your life!

It took me 5 yrs to figure out this question...and you want me to just hand over the info?  after I used up my precious surinam cherry rootstocks, and cut back my pitangatuba for scions?

 ;D ;D ;D

well alright then.

Yes, they aren't compatible...all of my diligent attempts have failed!!!

but don't take my word for it...it might be possible.

It seemed to be a little to good to be true.. My neighbors 20' tall surinam hedge has a good supply of seedlings under it!

although they look very similar in the book, they are very different in person!
