Q.How Do I Choose Scion From Mango Tree?

Zone 33068 | MChantal112 added on June 24, 2022 | Answered

I have a large mango tree and trying to graft it to make new smaller trees. However, I don’t understand which piece is best to serve as the scion. Letters with photos to match attached. A – The leftover stem from the mangoes that were hanging? Those are greenest. B- The same branches in “A” but further up where it’s darker? C – The branches without that leftover stem and remove the leaves? Also does it matter where (bottom vs higher) on the tree it comes from?

Any tip can be taken, but you must do so when the tree is not fruiting. These hormones can inhibit the grafting process, and it is not likely that they will take at this time. When fruiting is halted, or at a minimum, then taking a tip with the most vegetative budding will be appropriate.
