My oddball grafts.

Posted by fatal_fatalii (My Page) on

I have taken a Golden Jubilee and grafted it onto a 'Big Beef' rootstock so I hopefully can get the VFFNAT resistance it clamis.

Now here is the oddball part...

I have a bell pepper that I decided to graft to the leftover rootstock of the jubilee tomato. It does not look wilted or dead; but I guess you can say the my main concern is the plant going to live; and since its in the Solanaceae/Nightshade family will I have poison bell peppers ???

.... I also wish to graft a eggplant and hot pepper together [or speretatly] onto a resistant mater rootstock. Any thoughts?

RE: My oddball grafts.

I read somewhere - in a academic publication on auxins - recently about putting some rooting hormone on the surfaces to be grafted. I going to try it but haven't gotten to it yet.
