Yes, I know Ben (reliable grower) told me he grew the rooted cutting and was successful. It's like trying to root avocado cuttings, some people can get them to root, just takes patience and it doesn't hurt if you have a greenhouse to control the humidity and bottom temperature with a heating pad. I just root anything outside so if it doesn't, then I don't spend too much time trying out other methods.

Most people think white sapote and jujube are harder to root from cutting but you can do those outside in a pot, I had success with some cuttings that I would have otherwise thrown away. Also even very large mulberry cuttings (1" diameter) can be rooted from cutting if you baby it in a pot outside. I will take a photo of my large mulberry cutting that I rooted in a pot with nothing special done to get it to root.

Have you seen the yellow fruits on your tree ?

I do have a Lisa tree and it grows slow, not as vigorous as the Birula grafted trees.

Ryan, Wow !
Is that your tree with the fruit?

I thought the original bud mutation was from JF (Frank) tree, but I got my scions from Gozp.

There is also the Yellow Birula, has neat looking, yellow-colored fruits (outside color). I noticed this variety is a vigorous grower.

Nate, I will buy the Kadsura yellow. I had 3 seedlings (purchased) but they all died.

Jim, I'm in SoCal and I also don't get my grafted Xie Shan to fully ripen until December.

My other satsuma and ponkan starts to ripen from November-January. The earliest citrus fruit that turns color (except for my Valencia which seems to have ripe fruit for a longer time than others) is the Flying Dragon. Most of my FD fruits are all yellow and some fruits are dropping off now, so I need to collect them for the seeds to plant.

I added the Black Pakistan, I need to cut back the tall branches. May have enough for 5 orders so please place order asap, will not cut any after Friday.

fishie, the Australian Green / White Pakistan is not easy to root. Most people fail when trying to root it. Even Marta and Jan say its not suggested to try to root them since it is not easy. I only know of a few people who successfully rooted from cuttings. I have not been able to root it when I put it outside in a pot.

It has been growing fast on my large tree, but didn't taste any fruits yet. I didn't know it had some fruits starting when I cut it back to half height. I had other rarer varieties that I wanted to grow more so I cut back this one. It may tastes very good, according to Jan. I trade many varieties of cuttings with her but I had others that were even harder to find so I'm encouraging those grafts to grow more on the tree. I grafted many of my Sangue e Latte on my larger trees since there seems to be more interest in that one since no one else seems to have it yet.

Oh, got it, makes sense. You have some good, detailed photos of your work.

drymifolia, that is a lot of growth you got from a 1yr old cutting. Did you grow the cutting in a greenhouse?

I was suggesting you use the Aravaipa seedling as a strong rootstock, not to get it to fruit.

Yup, I like old school cars, even though I'm a retired electrical design engineer, I like not computers in my cars.

Did the fruits taste good?

I would suspect it is easy to root since the two grafts I did grew vigorously and large real fast. Also, I didn't even know it has some green fruits starting since the branch was so tall, I just cut some back and only saw the fruits when I picked up the cut branches (5 ft). I also got my cuttings from Jan.

Steve, good to know about Rainbow and Malibu #3. I'm glad I have those other varieties all grafted on the same tree (Walton, Vernon, Supersweet, Bonita Springs, Younghan's Gold, Cuccio, etc). I better move the smaller grafted Malibu #1 plant and graft a cutting to my multi-grafted tree.

Wow, nice seedless fruits Brad. Is your tree large or still under 6 feet?

Lazarus, yes I liked the SC400, so much that I had two of them since they were neat to drive (Black and Gold), wife thought I was nuts to have two of the same cars at the same time in our driveway. I got rid of both (scrapped) as they both reached over 300,000 miles. Now just one 69 corvette project car in the garage to work on.

Phil, sorry to hear that about your Australian Green grafts. If you pay for the shipping ($10), I can send you some Australian Green cuttings again, but in the small USPS box this time. Tree has some branches that can be cut but not as much as before when I had the special.

drymifolia, did you try germinating the Aravaipa seeds, it might be the best method than to root a cutting.

Yes, it's a Nagami kumquat. I have it and also the Meiwa which is better because it has sweet skin and flesh.

I cut back some branches from this new variety of mulberry I grafted last year. It's called Valdosta, Jan says it tastes very good, one of her top favorites. It was found in Georgia, fruit is about 1-1/2" long, tastes good. The tree is a vigorous grower, easy to graft. I have not tried to root it yet and have not tasted the fruits. Just noticed today after I cut some long branches it had green fruits.

So, if anyone would like to buy some cuttings here's the details:
1. Valdosta cutting, $4 each, max 4
2. Australian Green, $5 each, max 4
3. Black Pakistan, $3 each, max 4
4. Shipping cost, $10, USPS flat rate priority mail, small box.
5. You must be a forum member
6. Selling only to lower 48 states
7. I have the right to refuse to sell to anyone.
8. Paypal payment only, Friends & Family.

Send me a message if you would like to buy some cuttings while they last.

Pau, you fruits with spikes are very interesting. I have never seen any white sapote with that either. Please report back on the taste when it ripens.

My Clytia fruits (3-4) is still green, not ripe yet so maybe another month? The fruits are not that large, smaller than the Maddox seedling fruit.

Last photos of the Betty#1 from the parent tree. Since all the figs I have here were not ripened properly and some seemed to be not representative of the variety, I will only post the photos for comparison and not make the taste test I wanted to do.

I can show the typical weight of the Betty#1 fruits at least.
