Grafting is not too bad, last year was my first year grafting and i had good results.
I did watch a ton of videos on grafting before i understood exactly what, when & where i needed to graft but it worked out well.
I didnt think to ask for help on the name change.
I was a member but i wasnt very active on here so i didnt think twice on deleting it and immediately making a new account but after understanding the badge system i wish i would have asked.
Thanks for pointing out some of the locals.
I have been curious what works for my area but dont know anyone else growing fruit trees to ask.
As bad with names as i am i somehow remembered Zafak from a youtube comment where he gave me directions to several pawpaw patches near Florence.
I actually still have the screenshot saved in my phone of those directions.
Still havent had any fruit off my trees yet except for a couple persimmons and figs.
Plus about 6 other varieties i grafted on last yr.
I have a bunch of grafting to do this spring and if it all goes well ill add several apple varieties, some asain pears, apricots, plums and other peach varieties to these trees.
No peaches yet, i just planted those last summer but hopefully next year i will get some.
