Mango grafting anything particular this season what's your reasoning🙂

(1/4) > >>

My grafting list consists of Ah Ping reasoning I'm going to graft it onto the west side of cotton candy which will be visible from my sliding glass door. It is ultra early and has a beautiful red fruit Pleasant to the eye. Secondly some more Dupuis Saigon on two large Valencia Pride. Reasoning it is early delicious and highly recommended by Walter. Thirdly Sunrise on large Valencia Pride. Reasoning it is said to be a good alternative to Jakarta for folks in the interior. Lastly Super Julie in a big way onto ST. Reasoning easy bloomer that I fell in love with last season. At this point in my life I want consistent bloomers because time is precious. In addendum to lastly I acquired a Starch mango tree from Lara Farms that I'm waiting to be able to get budwood. And there's a local seedling of Blackie that came from Jamaica many years ago. That seems by the shape of the fruit to have been cross pollinated with Julie. This will be it's second season of fruiting. Hoping this season confirms last. My friends tree seems uniquely special. So I may be grafting this onto a ital provision tree

Dupuis Saigon budwood got from Walter last season

The number one for me is 36-8, I wanted one for a long time, but when I bought grafted trees, they always died from shipping shock.

Every other tree seems to rebound just fine however, so I'm going with bad luck.

I love the flavor, and ship-ability (thick skin and can ripen well if picked early).

Starch supposedly makes phenomenal rootstock if the scientific literature is to be believed (vigorous and highly productive).

Thanks for the info on starch I was curious about it's Vigor. A Trinidadian told me it is better than Julie so I think it's worth a Gamble.

 All great choices!!! Not many people know about AhPing, definitely a favorite of mine. Iíve been trying to get it ever since I first fell in love with it lol.
 Surprised you wouldnít put Sunrise and SuperJulie on that Valencia Pride and keep ST its own tree.. but it sounds like you are trying to limit how many varieties you have on a tree? Iíve lost Dupuis Saigon a few seasons ago.
 
This year as far as grafting Iím hoping to move varieties from the temporary trees that they were placed on, to some planted seedlings. Varieties that I plan to move are- Mulgoba, Cac, Edgar, Coconut Cream, Sunrise, Kesar, & Shwehinta/Raw Honey. Also maybe Mallika.
 
Only other ones Iím really looking forward to grafting more of are Pina Colada, Super Alphonso, Angie, Fruit Punch, Orange Essence, Venus, Sweet Tart, Cotton Candy, and maybe Sugarloaf. Reasoning is flavor complexity and also want to add more later season varieties or more of them.

Update on spring grafting. So far have grafted time will tell if they're successful. Ah Ping Amika Philippine Usda Himsagar Sunrise. Put in a request for Zinc and St. Maui. What I really want is Marko I'll just have to be patient which is not my nature
