Grafting onto a Satsuma plum

Zone 85395 | Anonymous added on June 12, 2019 | Answered

I live in the Phoenix of AZ and have a rather small yard. Can I graft a "pollinating" branch onto a Satsuma plum or do I have to plant a separate pollinator? Thanks for your response. Ken

Yes, If the variety requires a pollinator, space must be given for at least two trees. Growing a multi-grafted tree enables a homeowner to grow a variety of fruits in the space of one tree.
