Default Incredible but true !

Mauro,

This is great! Can you explain a little more about how and where (on the plant) you graft? I want to try it!

We have raised male papayas in the Philippines and had them bear fruit. We didn't have to wedge a spike of wood through the plant. We just break off the tip when they get to 2 ft tall. After they branch out, they produce flowers on long stems the result in smaller, less sweet fruit compared to female papaya fruit. But they were sweet anyway . . . even sweeter than the store bought papayas here in the US. When I say smaller, I mean, maybe six inches long - compared to almost three feet from female papayas. So they could even pass for "solo" type papayas.

you will see how I graft my bananas. Thanks. Mauro
Mauro,

I watched your 10 minute video -- very interesting. The word "grafting" is certainly incorrect, but you are splining corms. This technique will allow one species to support the other during times of stress. I don't know if there will be any exchange of genetic material or adaptation of one corm when it produces pups: I'll leave that answer to experts like Gabe!

It will be interesting to see what develops. I am quite excited and hopeful that it exceeds expectations. Although, having grafted many grapevines to rootstock, I can say that in my experience, the scion did not change. That said, grapevines don't 'pup' either. So, who knows, maybe it will work. The proof will leave us scrambling to try it. Now where did I put that Brazilian music CD?

it could be that it will only affect the amediate grafted bananas and the the pups will be of the parent corms type even if thats true its still a valid technique. look at roses they graft and you don't get seed that is of the two different plants but its still a valid form of horticulture its sorta like espalier for bananas and i love it!
