We’re grafting several varieties (like Dabinett, Yarlington Mill and Kingston Black) that we already have in our existing orchard planting, along with numerous new varieties (for us), such as Calville Blanc d’Hiver, Marin Onfroy, Mettais, Bedan, Stoke Red, Somerset Redstreak, Michelin, Ashmead’s Kernel, Harrison, Domaine, etc.
Honestly wish the weather would have permitted us to graft these trees in early April, but we couldn’t even get the rootstock in the ground by then this year. Ground was just too wet. Hopefully, we can manage to get a good 4 feet of growth out of these trees.
