C. tetrameria #6 and #7 scions - CLOSED
« on: February 14, 2022, 09:35:12 PM »
For friends who are around driving distance from North Miami Beach, FL :   

 I am going to graft some C.tetrameria #6 and #7 (wooly white sapote) variety to my C. edulis- regular white sapote seedlings. I have 5 spots where i can graft. I might be getting more than 5 scions from a very generous forum member in CA. If you want to graft C.tetrameria on to regular white sapote please message me. Won't ship.

Update Feb16th, 2022 - Scions arrived early, i have grafted much, some still left but so far no interest from growers in Miami-Dade and Broward county. Probably there are more rare fruit growers in West palm and northern counties and in Gulf coast area but since nobody reached out, i will close the topic. In future, if my grafts take and i can provide any scions i will be happy to share. 

Reportedly, C. tetrameria #6 and #7 are one of the best tasting ones from CRFG taste test. Also using C.tetrameria as an interstock or a rootstock has been found to dwarf the size of C.edulis trees without compromising the fruit production. This experiment was done in CA so i don't know how they will perform in Florida weather and soil, but i am trying to experiment and welcome anyone who wants to join.

Also, i am sharing this, not selling. I am only trying to distribute the species so we can have them for more growers here in South Florida.

Sounds very interesting. It would be nice to have these varieties tested in Florida. I wonder if they will be productive here. Thanks for posting.
