I have a Julie mango seedling that's about 2-3 years old and about 3 foot tall. It's pushing new growth now, I have it in the greenhouse. Would now be a good time to graft? anyone has a scion to share of a type of good mango that can also stay small?

RE: grafting mangos

Hi Bass!

I suggest you to use use another rootstock because Julie mangoes have a poor disease resistance. You should wait and graft it in spring, but if you have a greenhouse I think it does not matter.

Does your tree look like a long stick without branches? If yes, it will be perfect to be grafted.
