Alternative rootstock for Ross Sapote?
« on: June 30, 2017, 09:25:44 PM »

I was give 10 Ross Sapote scions but dont have any ross sapote seedlings. Any graft compatible rootstock from pouteria specie relative?

Do you have any canistel, P. campechiana?  That should work.

Hi Berns (or anyone else),

Iím wondering how you got on with grafting your Ross Sapote? I have a Canistel in the ground and am hoping the Ross will graft onto it ok. Iím planning an approach graft

there's someone on FB, in some of the groups like Tx rare fruit growers, and she doesn't use the forum, but she's doing some experiments with ross grafting, and other pouterias, so far looking good for a few species i thought didn't have a chance...like abiu on cansitel?  and a few others i forget...

i think Felipe showed me pics of mamey grafted on canistel growing very well, i always thought that combination was a dead end....

Ross grafts good on canistel . October is a good time to graft them. I use cleft graft and then bag them.
