Awesome tree JF!
I'm inspired to do more multi-grafts with my in-ground Zill's trees.

I am sure you will succeed we've had success with everyone one we've multi-grafted

We've had to come up with a solution to fit our 90 varieties in small city lots. The pic is from our friend AZ aka Mango Bandit/Sultan of Scions😀 but in our co-op we have about 2 dozens cocktail trees

That's a beautiful tree JF! A Mango orchard on one tree. I plan on multigrafting most my trees in order to preserve genetic material in case any of my trees bite the dust. Thanks for sharing,

Thanks Simon
Cocktail mango trees have been around forever. Here is a pic of  a100 year old multi grafted tree in Malihabad India with 300 varieties. The gentleman who grafted it received the highest civilian award of India

Maxi is a smart kid with a gift for grafting. I was inspired by Sir Haji Kalimullah the Indian legend with 300 grafts and Patrick when he posted his multi-grafted tree.....I wonder what happen to that tree?

The real question is how much $ to dig up that beautiful mango tree Frank?  ;) I am totally onboard with the Manilla rootstock as the de facto root stock for so.cal. You're a true champion Frank. Thanks, Chris

and here is another 12 N 1. Like Rob said LZ and ST grow vigorously upright but I have Carrie, Fairchild, Okorung, Tomato, Pickering, Tong Dam growing very well in the outer branches.




Here is how they start this an Indian 4 N 1 that I sold a forum member
