Question & Answer
I am interested in buying grafted apple cactus From: ravenshoe QLD
The Apple Cactus we sell are cutting grown and not grafted. Cutting grown has all the same traits as something that is grafted eg. True to type, and an exact representation of the parent unlike when growing something from seed. The only difference is that it doesn't have a different rootstock which can be an advantage with some fruit trees eg, dwarfing, disease resistant. However this is not the case with Apple Cactus. #AppleCactus2290
