Re: anyone with Pluots

Flavor Supreme tastes great grown here in Western Washington, but it must be hand pollenated to produce well. Dapple Dandy is productive here, but it's only about as good as Morris plum.

Re: Shiro plum as peach on plum inter-stem?

Grafted 4x each onto Shiro: Frost and Red Skin peaches. Frost didn't even try to take. It's doubtful but Red Skin may yet survive, it struggled it's first year.

Re: Malus Geneva series - Experiences

I bought 100 G 202 rootstock in 2013 and every one of the died within a years. I think the nursery sold me seconds, but charged me full price on those. M 106 also die more often than not here. Neighbor has the same experience. Bought 100 of each, G 41 & G 935, last year from a different nursery (mos...

Re: Scions Cutting and Shipping guidelines

If a the top end of a scion is not a terminal end, it should be cut so that a bud is 3/4" to 1" from the top end. A top bud 1/4" from the end is often unviable, and in some cases the next bud is about 4" down.

Shiro plum as peach on plum inter-stem?

A year or two ago, Raintree Nursery's catalog had an article about a guy that was doing this successfully. I've been unable to corroborate it's success rate from any other source. Also need details such as how long the inter-stem section needs to be. Would be great if it works since I have many exis...
