Hay lester, I live on the west coast of SA, and mine Jak, has been in now for four months. Its only put on about 6 inches. Its lost its original leaves and struggling with new little ones but these are growing ground up. The change in 40+ degree temps and strong winds should give it a better chance too. We had lots of frosts this year. I would love to try a pure custard fruit to. I have a bralian type which looks like it will survive to. Star apples are supposed to be very sensitive, mine is growing very happy.

Lester,

I grafted Cherimoya for the first time last spring. I followed the advice above and all grafts (5) were 100%. The grafts included small diameter pieces of wood and mismatches between scion and stock size. I have not tried any other time. I stored the scions in the fridge for about 6 days. It seemed to easy to be true!

Regards

Dave

I cut the leaves off and left a stub before puttng in the vegetable crisper wrapped a plastic shopping bag. l pushed the stubs off with my finger to expose underneath prior to wrapping the scion and graft in parafilm. I use the green 1cm wide tape which the florists use. It is fantastic stuff.

I grafted using a very simple cleft graft. It was as easy / easier than grafting an apple or nectarine tree.

I cannot for the life of me remember where l bought the parafilm tape. I know that it is widely used by florists to wrap stems with wire etc. A box of 10 rolls cost about $40.00 from memory. Easily available on Ebay for $8:50 for 2 rolls including postage, however check with a few florists first.

Once wrapped in parafilm l also wrap in 1cm clear grafting tape for a coupe of months to give the graft extra stength.

Regards

Dave

Its actually chickweed, but radium weed is also a good one - rich in boron and good for the soil. I leave most weeds that pop up as they have a natural role of repairing and remineralising the soil.

I have grown 2 jackfruit tree, one is 3 and half years old, which is now bearing 8 jackfruit the tree is about 2 and half meters tall, the other is 1 and half years old which is bearing 1 jackfruit, which is only 1 meters tall. in the early stages, its very important that during cold season, put a clear plastic bag over it, covering from top to bottom with about 3 cms below, this keep trap the heats and allowing it to grow during winter.
