Is it merely a matter of coincidence? Now that viral etiology may be
the culprit, no one is willing to use the list anymore.
Seriouly, I have a question about persimmon grafts. I whip grafted
some high chill kaki material from Lester Davis in late April, on
wandering native rootstock. Weeks later, it still had not pushed
buds, then I read of your almost daily rounds of pushing off persimmon
rootstock buds. Now I have two multibranched grafts that have grown
up to three feet. Have you ever had current year whip grafts break
from succulent growth above? If so, should I support the graft union
with a bamboo stake splint?
Second, I put MonArk and Kidd's Orange on two seedling apple whips.
The Monark has grown so well it has now fallen over. A deer kindly
pruned the KO back already. Should I stake or splint the gangly
MonArk, or cut it back to where it's vertical and force some
Picking for Carolina Red June and William's Pride almost done; very
good year for both.
