Also Im pretty excited about my american persimmon grafts.
I never did bark grafting and was skeptical but my 1 bark graft took, and maybe 50% of whips so far ... so did a few more bark grafts this past weekend so we shall see which method is more successful.
PS I have both Prok and Yates (and Lehman's Delight).
Yates replaced a WS-810 that just died on me this spring (so Tony, u are lucky if you got that one grafted with the scionwood I sent you).
Is WS-810 (or another newer variety Cliff England sells) that much better than Yates (which i heard is very large [maybe almost as large as Prok? and has subtle apricot flavor?])?
I was debating if should take one of my new WS-810 (or other variety like A-118Elmo, etc) grafts and replace the 'replacement Yates' i just put in .
