Does anyone know where budwood for the Hawaii cultivated Rapoza budwood can be sourced in the US? I need to ship to California for grafting.

Check with Jeff Hagen. He grafted one up for me. Not sure where he got the budwood or if he has any more available.

There are several places in Homestead that have it. You can check with Fairchild Farm to see if they will ship. Be forewarned though - it's a somewhat difficult cultivar to graft.

Thanks. Searching the entire web I see only one reference to Rapoza budwood so it is good to get such aspeedy response. W.r.t Fairchild farm, what is the best way to contact them? Are you talking about the fruit stand or the place in coral gables?

I can't remember if TREC had the rapoza too, but that's another place to try. As for fairchild farm, just call the number on their website and ask if they ship budwood. I know you can pick it up locally at a couple of dollars a piece. The farm is located behind the fruit stand.

If all else fails you can try to get it from the USDA.

What is TREC?

TREC stands for Tropical Research and Education Center. It is UF's tropical fruit research farm down in Homestead, FL.

Jeff - a few weeks ago Linda had brought back a mango from Zills that they had marked Rapoza. Do they have a tree(s) and would Gary part with any budwood ?

It's possible that they have a tree. But, they never sell budwood.
