High Stake Grafts
« on: September 14, 2023, 02:26:08 PM »





Grafting campomanesia hirsuta from another plant (thank you Wildlands Nursery / Nate!) to try to get some genetic diversity. My hirsuta flowers endlessly and makes no fruit so I think it needs a mate.

Anyone else done some high stakes grafting this year?

I tried to graft a super rare plinia I can't say the name of for now, but then it didn't make it :P...

I did successfully graft variegated scarlet, but I mean, it's not that rare. I think it's a clutch graft cause I had to give away the plant for graftatree so before I sent it off I took a scion...I regret that but at least I have it :-\

Is there multiple sources for Hirsuta, or you just have the one plant and need another seedling with any presumed possible genetic difference?
I would have guessed these were from the same batch of seeds/genetics since plants are same age?

This is a chunk from Nate's plant, which are all if I am correct from Marta's batch? Don't know of any other sources aside from Mr. Hewitt. I just needed another genetic variety to hopefully get cross pollination. Mine is flowering, I don't think Nate's was?

It's the best I can do given the circumstances. I did have one other hirsuta seedling but it it died off pretty quick, this one just trucks.

Put several of Bobooshkis jabo varieties on my fruiting escarlete this year

Tried to graft branches of fruiting Myrciaria guaqueia on a rootstock of the same and on M. glazoviana

a few variegated jabo grafts

Some yangs

That hirsuta looks like a beast

These seedlings are from seeds imported from Brazil! They are probably the same batch but should be genetically distinct enough to provide pollen as a distinct parent.

Hopefully, there is enough flowering Hirsuta's around now to put them together and test the theory.
I found them to be  pretty non demanding little tree's, while I did lose 1 of the 2 I got from you overwinter from neglect or just planted in a bad spot, the other is cruising on this summer's neglect. No flowers without water though.

I gave one to Rick and his was flowering! Hopefully some of mine will start up here soon.

New variety name...can't let them know yet :P
The plant matrix won't let me.
I hope to post it soon though when I'm not too busy with school and work.
Hint - the name is after another tree with long leaves.

The variegated scarlet is still rare, but at least a few collectors made it more common after a few large trees made it in. LOL
I think the variegated coronata is more rare...and btw if anyone is looking for a plant, I do have one spare.
