I don’t have any rootstock available. I demoed at oc bud grafts so I actually cut a long branch of cherimiya and pretended that was rootstock and demonstrated how to bud graft because the bark is slipping on cherimiya almost year round. It’s really not a good time of year to do bud grafting.
Actually Behl from tff taught me the modified veneer graft and he demonstrated also at oc event but I think la is too far for him.
I really liked Lucida I had this year (also from behl).
To practice grafting you really have to try different techniques, and you will fail, but then when you re-observe someone doing it you are better able to pinpoint what he/she does differently and how it may work for you. You can actually order many cherimoya and annona scions from Frank and from behl on tff sometime in March- and again in September so there are multiple opportunities to practice throughout the year.
What were your thoughts on the taste testing? I didnt get to go but a good friend if mine grows multiple varieties and he shared Lucida and Helmut with me. Lucida was amazing this year.
Happy to help if timing works out :-). Couldnt make it last year because one child has a birthday on Feb 10 and I’m expecting another child around the same time this year!
I demonstrated bud grafts at OC this year and used cherimiya and strawberry guava as examples that still had bark slippage at this time of year.
Fang – Are you a member if tropical fruit forum?
How was it?
Did they post taste testing results?
I use modified veneer graft on my annona species with almost 100% success rate on some 20 grafts done over the past year. Good luck. They push slowly but high rate of take and sometimes the buds don’t even have to be wrapped.
See you there
