Ambarella is one of my favorite fruit and plant.  Anyone growing this crazy giant version?

You see them around in North Queensland a bit and the trees are bigger than the standard types and way too big for yards.

That's a big one,maybe it could be grafted on the dwarf Ambarella and it would help manage the tree size.

Are there any that are more dwarf than Thai, to use as rootstock?

Is your tree large? I currently have 2 trees. One's in a pot.  They always seem to get attack by gophers ahah.

I bought a small Thai recently.
Iím thinking of grafting a bigger fruit but more vigorous variety to it.
Not sure if tree would stay dwarf.
