Tropical Fruit Discussion / Air layering Mango Trees?
« on: September 22, 2023, 08:09:11 PM »
Hello Members,

I know the preferred method of propagation of mango trees is grafting.
Lately Iv been watching Hindu videos on air layering, I decided to try and today I saw a thick reddish root poking thru the plastic bag 👍🏼.

Any members experimented with this method ?

Hello Members,

Iím my yard I stated to graft onto OS, PP, and Francis Hargrave mango , with high success rate .
On my Mahachanok all Cleft grafts failed !

I did (3) grave digger grafts on it but to early to tell .

Are some varieties harder to graft than others ?

Thanks Ed

Should I remove the tape at this stage ? Mango graft

Tropical Fruit Discussion / The ď Coffin ď Grafting Method ?
« on: September 05, 2023, 03:49:31 PM »
Hello Members,

I decided to try this method , I believe it was listed by (Sapote ) .

For those of you who are experienced with this method , does this look correct?
The scion is a pencil thick , and has 2 buds on top .
I made sure the rubber bands didnít cover any buds .

Thanks Ed
PS itís a Maha top work project .

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Maha Chanok mango tree Top Working Prep..
« on: August 20, 2023, 09:46:29 AM »
Hello Members,

I have a Maha that is growing out of control , where I live I have to keep a low profile with my fruit trees , No matter how hard I prune it , it comes back with high vigor.

So I would like to top work with :
Sugar Loaf - Pickering- OS- M4

The Question is , when would it be a good time to cut back the Maha to prep for top working in SF?

Thanks Ed

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Veggie Slicer As A Grafting Tool!
« on: August 06, 2023, 12:31:28 PM »
Hello Members,
Been a very long time that I havenít post , but still busy with my fruit trees 👍🏼
This is probably the best mango Season for my place .

I wanted to share this method im using to graft Mango & Avocado trees , my hand cuts are not upto par like most of you grafting experts .
So I used my wife veggie slicer for my Scions , makes a great perfect cut all the time for me .
So far itís working for me better that making the V Cut by hand .

Thanks Ed
