Tropical Fruit Discussion / Avocado Bark Grafting
« on: February 09, 2024, 03:40:45 PM »
Theres been a lot of people asking me for scion wood to do bark grafting of avocado trees lately.  Its not just 1 or or 2, its 5 or more people all wanting to do this in February.  Im telling everyone the bark will not slip right now.  You can do cleft grafts but I don't think the bark grafts will work out.  Thats why I have been doing this grafting work in December.  The trees still have sap flow and can be bark grafted.  Thats working quite well the last few years. 

I'm just putting this here so people can understand the best timing for doing avocado grafting and top working. 

If you want to stump a large tree, the best time to do that is mid summer.  It takes 2-3 months and you will have plenty of new growth to graft onto in December-April.  That would be small cleft grafts. 

If you want to top work a tree with 1-2inch diameter branches or main trunk, you can cut it back in early december (in southern CA) the sap will still be flowing and bark will peel off and be able to do bark grafts.  Or you can wait until it warms up again and do it in maybe April.  By that time, the grafts will be seeing a lot more heat and will be hard to get good takes if you live in a hot interior area.  If its a mild coastal area, spring and even summer grafting is not a problem.  Just shade the grafts until well healed and thry are fine.

If you want to do cleft grafts, of course the timing is not critical.  It is just getting the stumping and bark graft timing down that is more important.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Whitewashing trees
« on: January 08, 2024, 11:59:38 PM »
I don't know if you guys paint your exposed avocado and mango bark white.  If you live in rural San Diego you probably should since they get sun burn easily.  I always have used a paint brush to do it in the past.  And never did it enough because it is kind of a big pain. 

Well I bought a 38$ knock off makita cordless paint sprayer off Temu and let me tell you, it is so awesome.  I painted over 100 trees in just a couple hours.  It's so quick and easy.

You guys with big operations should get one, it rocks big time.

This tree is really hard on itself.  It breaks branches and loads up so much fruit it's hard on the tree.  Too much of a good thing.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Avocado seedling fruited
« on: January 14, 2023, 07:02:11 PM »
This tree is a volunteer off a nearby fuerte tree.  Dropped fruit, sprouted, grew and a few years later made a few avocados.  It actually tastes pretty nice and its early.   Seed is kind of big, otherwise it seems decent. The tree is growing like a beast and if it fruits every year then it may be a keeper.  If anyone wants to grow it I will give you scions for free.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Micro sprinklers used
« on: November 26, 2022, 07:20:00 PM »
These are what I use for the first 2 years on my trees.  Now my trees have graduated to bigger tips and I have no use for these. 

They are 30 cents each new.  I'm selling for 10 cents each.  I have around 200 of them.  Some have some calcium buildup, they can easily be cleaned up by soaking in vinegar.  The cap comes off and they are fully cleanable and can be made like new over and over forever.  These go on 1/4" tubing and a stake and point at the tree to make a circle.
