It is always a good thing when you can to a couple of things at the same time. That makes everyone’s life easier and every task that more achievable. When it comes to trying to grow fruits, there is a way that you can save a lot of time and a lot of space at the same time. Yes, that is possible.
You can graft several different fruit cultivars onto one rootstock and grow a couple of the fruits at the same time. As we said, it is going to save you a lot of space.
You can buy them already grafted, but you can also do the job by yourself, making a couple of these “Frankentrees” that are able to bear several cultivars of some species of fruit. All of that on a single rootstock. People have had a lot of success with the bought ones as well as the ones that they have created themselves.
It is probably going to take some time to get used to grafting but after that easy learning process, you are going to have a valuable skill. This is especially good if you lack space, but have the desire to grow a lot of different types of fruit. In that case, this is the best thing ever.
This method is working best between the scion and a rootstock that are of the same species, but intergeneric and interspecific combos are also a thing that can work, which makes it really interesting.
It’s all about experimenting and discovering what works for you, what your goals and wishes are. That is the first thing that you need to determine. After then, you need to explore all the options. The good thing here is that you really do have a lot of options.
