The grafting shears are from Amazon.

This is the specific one I bought, but I'm pretty sure the others that look the same are made by the same manufacturer, just branded differently:

I also bought parafilm at the same time from Amazon. The other time I tried grafting I used electrical tape and an old plastic produce bag. I did avocado first because it's convenient and I had seedlings ready. Next I have a mango seedling ready to graft my grandma's mango on. After that, I have a bunch of citrus seedlings started, so maybe next year they'll be ready, but those I plan on grafting a main cultivar, then trying bud grafting multiple cultivars on one tree. That'll probably take years, though.

The star apple seeds that I planted never grew, so I got the tree because I didn't want to wait. The aesthetics are a big plus.

From what I've read, the banana can be used as either a plantain or dessert banana (I think this is common with the Hawaiian varieties). Supposedly has pink flesh when fully ripe.

I remember you mentioning melanose before, and it looks like it. It's only on the side that doesn't get sun. If it's only something that effects appearance, I'm fine with it. It's good to hear your citrus is doing well, I always worry about giving advice and how it'll do. Hopefully they'll fruit soon.

Thanks for the maile info. According to that, I'm pretty sure the pot it's in is in the right location, I just have to find somewhere to plant it.

Here's a pic of my jackfruit tree:

The only pruning I think I did was top it. The bamboo is in the way of where I cut it, but I topped it around 4 1/2 feet above the soil. It's also got some new shoots, but I think with the jackfruit, most of the new growth dies off. It's also really uneven because I don't rotate my trees so the sun hits all sides, which I probably should. You can also see the tiny fruit behind the leaf. Still unsure if it will stay, but at least it's there.

Okay! The author was a lady who back in the 70's (I think) had a newsletter she sent out that was finally consolidated into book form. She was raising a bunch of kids and trying to save $ so she & her family could have the house & lifestyle they wanted on just her husband's salary. Here's the Amazon on it:

You may be able to find it at a library. She was pretty popular back in the day.

Will you be able to attend the Ulu fest on Maui? If not, maybe try check the farmers market for some. That's where I purchase or barter for ulu as our grocery stores locally hardly if ever carry it.

Also check out this cook book. Looks pretty good.

Yep, but you have to use it for the life of the plant. Not as effective if its just done during late fruiting.
