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

Baptiste is a popular Haitian dessert mango. It is a mid-season fruit here in SW FL, but in its native climate it can fruit year round. It is a small, manageable tree which makes it a great choice for space limited gardeners. The fruit is around 14 ounces with a mottled yellow skin when ripe. It has a firm, sweet flesh which holds its shape in fruit salads and other desserts well.
