I made one out of old metal strapping material works good I'll take pic later today. Have used on a 'Big Jim' loquat tree I bought at a CRFG conference many years ago away planted it and it never wanted to fruit after getting up to good size so, I girdled it one year and nothing happened so next year I girdled again and then it started fruiting for me.

Some of my seedlings sometimes throw single seeded fruit but not all the time. Wonder if it's environmental thing?

Nice report on some of your flavorful loquat's Kaz, keep up the great report, nice pic's too!

Yes, both of you Fang & Simon for your input's on growing Yangmei, Fang it's good to see you posting again either I have missed your other posts or whatever but I do know that you have most experience here besides Richard in San Diego area who had good luck with first try at growing these tree's.
I value your guy experience please keep us posted on the nuances of growing this new fruit to us anyway!!

Josh, let me know that you got pm thanks.

Simon, thanks for all your insides about growing and your experience with Yangmei plant's that sure help's us new folks with this plant. 8)

Yeah Simon, I plan on growing out root stock hopefully but keep hope for graft's. Yeah, I remember seeing Fang's tree's when we visited his place back when last CRFG conference was in L.A. area plus some folks on forum will have it growing later on hopefully.
Did Fang, move or something? He hasn't posted for quite some time!

OK. mu report I looked at my two tree's one Dongkiu which has most trunk section above graft no bud's pushing yet, the Black Peak is not as well off had to cut back trunk above graft to about 1" above graft but not giving up yet as still has many spot's where bud's can push!! finger crossed.

I would think that it should work grafting onto flowering quince but the only time I have tried it was years ago I grafted a fruiting variety from Edgar Valdeva onto a flowering quince and it stayed alive for about 3-years then died. I would say if you could get them cheap enough it might be worth a try.

Wow, nice close up grafting for sure you've got a cool collection going too! Thanks for sharing.

Nice Kaz, is that from raintreenursery? I think that's what i read on tag!  Cool good luck with your graft's!

I gleaned some soil from under my Locust trees and Elaeagnus trees which has associations with frankia and screened into potting mix of peat moss and worm castings. Potted both trees up with bags over pot's to keep up mosture. Time will tell did some tip pruning back to healthy wood!

Wow Kaz, nice tree's you got hope you have luck grafting them keep us posted on results!

Is July too late to graft white sapote?

No, where your at should be able to graft all year long. As long as you have good scion wood.

Big thanks to Ken for going through all the hassles to make this order happen I got my tree's yesterday from Kevin who picked up for my area.
Big thanks to Kevin, for doing the long trip down and back to pick our tree's
Also, nice to meet forum member in person and talk a little. Got to meet Nattyfroootz too at Kevin's since I'm and old fart it's nice to meet young enthusiastic rare fruit growers!! 8)
Also in my area got to meet Slopat and Santa Maria9b who came and picked up there tree's at my place 8)

What size did the tree's end up being?

All the tree's I have purchased (Medlars) have been on quince rootstock! I don't know if long term medlar will growon apple, what kind of apple did you graft to?

What? Loquat can be grafted to quince? Would it be possible to take an apple or pear tree and graft loquat to it?
No,Loquat will not graft to Apple or Pear the only way is if you had quince tree then grafted apple to one branch the pear to another and so on and so forth!Y you can through a Medlar onto that magical tree too!

Thanks beicadad, for going through this hassle hopefully everything will turn out fine!
