Grafting Fruit Trees
Name: Chris H.
My question is this. To set the scenario, my dad had
grafted a fruiting apple tree branch to a crabapple tree. The graft took
- to the dismay of my father for it proved his dad right - but my
question is what fruit will be produced on the branch of the grafted
apple tree. Will it change to producing crabapples?
I would ask my dad
but unfortunately he passed a year ago. Also, what book could you suggest
that is a simple ABC's of grafting. So, if I wanted to do a grafting
exercise with kids, we could attempt and be successful.
The grafted apple branch will continue to produce apple flowers and fruit.
