Thanks Kaz for providing fresh, healthy mulberry cuttings! In the previous order, Iíll give you an update...

The Black Pakistan cuttings were rooted. No leaf growth yet, but I did the scratch test on the bark and most are still green.

The Red Himalayans were grafted. To my surprise, most are still green and a couple of leaf buds on a few cuttings are showing signs of growth.

Now the bummer part. Not sure if it has to do with rootstock and scion compatibility issues or my grafting technique, but already many Australian Green grafts have dried out. It appears Australian Green variety is even more finicky at grafting than the White Shahtoot variety. I think I would like to try a few more Australian Green cuttings and, hopefully, I can get that bad boy to graft successfully...

I got some Valdosta cuttings from Jan before and they rooted easily. 3 for 3 rooted.

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.

Kaz, how do you rate Valdosta versus your other mulberries?

Kaz, I heard it the Australian green did not root but saw someone have success so thought I would give it a try for the hell of it. My grafted tree is like 2 inches long  ;D

It seems like deciduous trees donít like me...Apple, peach, pear, cherry, and quince cuttings they dry up and wither in our hot and humid climate, despite the cuttings being placed in indirect light. If you can get those cuttings to root, then your growing skill can likely net you a few rooted Australian Green cuttings!👍😁

Nice fat cutting Kaz! I have found them to root pretty readily as well.
