[NAFEX] Grafting C. mas

I chipped 4 years ago 3 different C. mas varieties
giving greater fruits (about 1 inch long) on the branches of small C. mas
seedling. The branches of the rootstock seedling weren’t thicker than 0.15
inches. The small tree has fruited.
Another time I grafted on C. mas
seedling only one variety and left the own seedling stay and be a pollinator.
Of coarse I have restricted every year the grow of the seedling own part. Some
years later the grafted variety was so high prolific, that one branch has been
broken, not withstanding the fruits weight.
The location of the two mentioned cases is in South‑Europe,
USDA Zone 7.
Usually C. mas makes only a thin budsticks in the summer. But you can
always find on an older rootstock the corresponded thin branches to make successful
the chip budding. If you have the case of older rootstocks and the bark slips
from the wood you could use the T‑cut to insert the bud. After the chip or the
bud is inserted I use parafilm grafting tape.
Don't hesitate, try"

Guten Tag Akexander,
Thanks for the response and information. That is a good article. I was going to try a different type of grafting earlier in the growing season, but will now wait for summer.
Have you any thoughts on creating combo trees for C. mas? In other words, trees with several grafts and multiple varieties of C. mas vs. just one or two varieities. I have not seen too much range in size and growth rate of the trees I have.
