Grafting

Zone Pasadena, Tx 77502 | ever8898 added on February 16, 2018 | Answered

My husband bought an orange tree. When it was time for it to bear fruit, it tasted more like a lemon. A friend suggested we graft it. Problem is we don't know how. Is there any classes on how to graft a fruit tree? We live in Pasadena, Are there any classes near us? Thanks! Mrs. Flores

I wouldn't know of any classes in your area, but there is much literature on the subject online. Depending on the type of orange, there are many bitter species, and it could have been one of them. Here are a few links to information on the subject: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/propagation/grafting/
