Are Mahachanok Mango Harder To Graft Than Other Varieties?
« on: September 18, 2023, 05:26:34 PM »
Hello Members,

Iím my yard I stated to graft onto OS, PP, and Francis Hargrave mango , with high success rate .
On my Mahachanok all Cleft grafts failed !

I did (3) grave digger grafts on it but to early to tell .

Are some varieties harder to graft than others ?

Thanks Ed

When did you graft the failed ones?

Was it during any of this heat?

August same time I grafted the other successful grafts .
Perhaps it may be that the Maha is not active ?

Definitely could just be a timing issue.

My maha seems to flush at different times than my other varieties.

Cleft grafting on to vigorous shoots will often fail, as the tree will just grow around the graft.

For vigorous shoots, you would want to use side veneer, which allows the main shoot to continue to grow. Once the graft has taken, you can cut back the rootstock shoot.

Grave graft should not have any problems.

I was able to successfully graft Maha, so it can't be that hard.

Thanks Cookie for the grafting advice, that should help.

Is September a good time to try grafting mangos? A friend wants to offer me some Florigon trimmings to graft onto the trunk of my Glenn. Also what type of graft would be recommended?

Whenever trees are pushing new growth is a good time. I used to think anytime March to November, but I tried a bunch in late July this year with no rain and "surface of the sun" conditions and had a bunch more failures than usual. Once the rains finally came, my success rate went back up.
