    according to Collins dictionary, manzano=apple tree in English

  • Randall Smith

    Well, whatever "manzano" is, I'll eagerly anticipate the bearing of fruit. I like puzzles.

    Daniel, I learned to graft in a botany class at IU. I tried it later and was successful on a 3 for 1 pear tree long ago (and far away). I think I remember how to do it, and may try it on my new pear tree. You recommend waiting a year, eh? My new trees are about 10 feet tall. 

    I bought a "yellow delicious" apple tree yest. I went to 3 different places looking for a plum, but all 3 strores/greenhouses had only pear, apple, and cherry. I don't ever want another cherry tree.

    Randy, that size tree can be grafted. Even tiny trees can.  If you have a source for scion that have not leafed out or buds swelled to bloom, you can do it now.  Sometimes growth of grafts on new bare root trees isnt as vigorous, but it should take.  My concern is more whether you can find dormant scion, than the size of the tree.  I think I was being over cautious.
