Multi-Grafted Avocado and Maprang seeds
I recently grafted an avocado seedling with 6 different varieties of avocados to extend the season on one tree. A friend of my moms only had space for one tree and had a seedling in a pot so I decided to multi graft it for him. I can not remember all the varieties and the ink I labeled the budwood with washed off.
One's already flowering.
The only side veneer I did.
The rest were clefts.
This one is still alive but it hasn't budded out yet.
I ordered 2 sets of maprang(Bouea macrophylla) seeds online. One from Hawaii(www.fruitlovers.com) and one from Malaysia(http://myworld.ebay.com/seedsgarden/). The Hawaiian ones came from a wan maprang tree. Not sure if it was the same 'Wan' that Whitman grew or just a generic sweet maprang from Thailand. The other seeds from Malaysia were just a sweet/sour type.
After I dehusked a few. Notice the purple colour.
Hawaiian seeds. These came already sprouted with roots.
After two days planted it has already pushed up its first set of leaves.
