Grafting from non mature tree

    1 responses

Wodez starts with ...
I have a few avocado seedlings I will soon be grafting onto.
I have access to a friends mature tree but he is unsure of the exact type of avocado. It’s about 8m tall and fruit tastes great.

I will graft most of my seedlings with this tree but I was after a bit of variety and maybe some smaller trees. Another friend has 9 avocado trees. They are only 3-4 years old. They are yet to fruit but they are definitely grafted. I’m wondering if I take some bud wood from these trees will they fruit in the usual 4-5 years like grafting from a mature tree? Or will they take longer because they are not technically grafting from a mature tree, just a young tree that is grafted.

Overall the budwood from any fresh grafted tree will still be fully mature, not reverted to younger state. There might be a very slight delay from the younger trees, and sometimes new vigorous shoots on a grafted tree can be less mature, but they will be fine and catch up.
