Jaboticaba Grafting: alternatives to cleft grafting
« on: May 20, 2023, 07:12:34 AM »
Has anyone had luck with grafts for jaboticaba, other than cleft grafting?

A cleft is the only one Iíve seen mentioned, and usually in reference to a single scion onto rootstock. But what about for very thin scions grafting onto branches of a mature tree? With figs at least, the whip-and-tongue is the gold standard for such grafts, as itís strong and provides more Cambrian contact. While figs are soft wood, w&t is the recommended graft for persimmons too, which are similarly hard wood like jaboticaba. Side grafts or bark grafts are also common.

I bought some Jabo seedlings to cut scions for grafting.
The scions were toothpick or thinner.
I used inlay side graft.
Peeled a strip of bark on the thick rootstock, the width of the scion, and slid the scion under.

Trimmed rootstock after the graft had mature leaves.
