Myrcianthes pungens grafted on Myrcianthes fragrans
« on: November 08, 2023, 09:55:00 PM »
Hey all-

I checked for previous posts on this and only found one asking about the compatibility here-

I recently grafted a few sticks from Bush2Beach onto a mature M. fragrans bush I have here and I am happy to report one of the scions is pushing-

We will see about long term compatibility but a good start!

Indeed this is really cool!  I'm pretty sure Fragrans is native to Florida, so this would open up some possibilities.

Correct!

It seems to a be a bulletproof little bush over here as well, A little damage at 18f but bounced back and fruited this year-

Unfortunately I still have yet to try either fruit but if they are good I will get some more

I hope this works. My cross eugenia grafting tests did not prove fruitful :(

Worried about long term rejection as well-

Bush2Beach's pungens is fruiting so maybe a chance to try some fruit before it gets rejected if nothing else

And B2B's guabiju is confirmed a very good one, plus the leaves on his tree are totally unique and wavy / pink growth. A winner.
