What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

A pair of low chill apples - the perfect couple Dorsett Golden and Anna - for best results of cross-pollination and heavy production. Low chill apples bear as far south as South Florida, and may be a unique addition to your yard. Attractive white apple blossoms will appear during Feb-March and give way to fruit in June. They remain a small tree, growing to about 15 feet.See here for individual plant description
