I am curious as to why these grafts aren’t more popular.
These grafts have immense cambial contact which should lead to a good success rate even for problematic types like peaches and persimmons. The grafts look like they will be strong without excessive risk of breakage after the initial healing period.
Just as important, they are easy to do with low risk of cutting yourself (like in the tongue portion of W/T).
I just did a half dozen yesterday (with figs) and it felt easy without having to worry about matching cambium, worry about dislodging it while wrapping etc.
So, having not seen results but just seen the theory behind it, what am I missing?
