Last year, in this article I wrote about grafting my apple tree. The idea is to have an apple tree that produces different varieties (flavors) on the same tree. It is a small space gardening concept for folks who are not able to have an orchard with many different trees. So, to that end, this spring I will again attempt to graft McIntosh , Granny Smith and more of the Cortland varieties. The Cortland are the grafts that successfully adhered last year. Now, it will be fun to see how long before the grafts are producing fruit. I would guess at least 2 or 3 years minimum.
Here is a great story about a guy who has taken grafting to the extreme! Amazing!
