Hi Brad, When is a good time to graft them? My stone fruit trees are dormant now.  Is it better to do dormant to dormant graft or wait till March when trees start getting out of dormancy?  My zone is 10a.

Thanks

I always do them end of January but you can still do it in february and march.  In zone 10 it doesnt really matter.  If you live somewhere like zone 8 or less, you are supposed to cut scions in winter and store them in the fridge then graft afterthe sap starts to flow in March. 

and Ive had people tell me they did it in june also.  if you look on google, you will get all kinds of answers.  From personal experience l get 95%+ takes during end of january or early february.

The scions have arrived today. Great communication prior to the transaction. Excellent packaging, extra scions for every single variety I ordered, extra Mexicola Grande seeds. Brad is definitely one of the best, if not the best seller on this forum, and I wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone!

Im sorry I dont.  I chopped the tree down.  I appologize if I said I would send those and didnt.  Most of the fruit ended up on the ground and we didnt eat them.  They just arent that great and so many people were asking for seeds I kind of just got over run with requeats for seeds.

Well thanks!

Just so people know Im done shipping scions for the year.  Im way too busy with family and other business and projects at the moment.  I appologize if anyone wanted stuff and didnt get it.  I am getting tons of messages and try to return them all but Im a bit overloaded right now and just need to stop for now.

Do you think that the true cherries could possibly graft onto chickasaw plum? I've grafted improved plums, apriums, and pluots to it before with success. Also hear peach and nectarines can graft onto it as well. Cherries are a prunus so maybe it would work too. Unfortunately the large chickasaw plum tree I had grafted like 7 different varieties of improved species onto died from long standing water the following season. My back yard is low and after hurricane Michael knocked all the large trees down water stands forever back there. Three summers back we got 90+" of rain that year and had standing water for 3 months straight. Killed the giant plum tree and half my large blueberry row. So disappointing...but now I've got a new plum in the front yard. Gonna graft the heck outta it with good varieties.

Brad,

Any suggestions on which of the peach, nectarine, and apricot/aprium varieties will root best from cuttings?
While im rooting them in South FL, my intention is to send them to a small farm in Zone 8a/b in TX.

Thanks.

If all the other ones graft to it then I would guess yess or just use an interstock like plum maybe.

Indont know, I have never rooted them.  I think it may be more straight forward to have the person in TX plant out rootstocks ordered from the internet then I send them scions to graft.  Pretty much a caveman or cavewoman can get 100 takes on these things.

It was more so something I would try for fun, since I dont really work with stone fruits. If a producing tree resulted from a cutting, it would be cool. I appreciate the advice!

Brad,

Which one of your stone fruit worth growing in socal? I've done small amount of research and chill hours is all over the place on what is needed. I see from your initial post that snow queen looks like a large producer. Taste worth it?

They are all good ones.  Peaches I would say are the best performers. 

Have not tried red barron peach.
