What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

7 gal pot. This plant is grown in 7 gal pot, more mature than our standard size plants in 3 gal, has a more developed root system, and most of the time thicker trunk and more branches. However actual plant size may vary depending on the growing season and on variety. Dwarf varieties are slow growers and may be shorter trees than upright varieties. See a picture showing the relative size of plants grown in 3 gal and 7 gal.
You may contact us if tree height matters to you and we will provide you with more exact plant size we have in stock at the time. 7 gal plants may be shipped separately from other items by Ground service due to its large size. See here time in transit (business days, excluding Sat-Sun!)

Mamey sapote cultivar Key West (Pantin) originates in Florida. It produces medium size fruit (15-40 oz). Flesh is pink to red, fiberless, excellent quality, contains 1 seed. The tree is tall. Ripening season - late summer.
A unique fruit with an interior texture that is both creamy and sweet, the vibrant salmon-colored flesh of the Pantin mamey sapote is unlike anything most people have ever tasted. The flavor is a combination of sweet potato and pumpkin with undertones of almond, chocolate, honey, and vanilla. The ovoid, medium-large fruit has a large center pit, similar to an avocado. This superior mamey sapote cultivar was discovered growing near a fire station in Key West, Florida. The seeds of this tree were believed to come from Cuba by way of 19th century dissidents who left the island at that time. The tree was originally called the Key West mamey sapote until it was selected and propagated by Eugenio Pantin in the early 1950s. The story goes that a Cuban émegré named Josefina Jimenez smuggled three mamey seeds into the US in her brassiere and gave them to Pantin, who grew them as seedling rootstocks, onto which he grafted

After his death in 1963, Eugenio’s son, Donald, took over the family business, and nurseryman, Lawrence Zill, who had recognized the potential of Eugenio’s prized cultivar, named it the Pantin mamey sapote.
Today, Pantin represents about 95 percent of the mamey sapotes produced on some 350 acres under cultivation in southern Florida.

budwood of the Key West mamey tree. Pantin then proceeded to plant a small commercial orchard in Miami-Dade County, Florida. After his death in 1963, Eugenio’s son, Donald, took over the family business, and nurseryman, Lawrence Zill, who had recognized the potential of Eugenio’s prized cultivar, named it the Pantin mamey sapote.
Today, Pantin represents about 95 percent of the mamey sapotes produced on some 350 acres under cultivation in southern Florida.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

Lorito variety has extra large fruit size, weighing up to 3-4 lbs, up to 5" in diameter, and 8" long. Thick, solid red flesh with sweet taste. Very reliable producer throughout the year. The time required from the nipple to the ripe fruit is 8-9 months. To get maximum flavor mamey sapote lorito must be harvested at the maturity level of 80% and stored up to 4 days. Another advantage is, Lorito is easily propagated by grafting.

Pace is the #1 cultivar commonly available in FL. Late season. It's very precocious, incredibly delicious (besting the Pantin / Key West in the opinion of some), highly productive, and produces in early spring when few other fruits are available. It's also reported to have good cold tolerance (for a mamey). The fruit is salmon colored.
Pace is a cross between the Magana and the Tazumal. Both parents are precocious, which is why the Pace is very precious. And, the Tazumal is reported to be very cold tolerant, which would explain the Pace's cold tolerance.
Interestingly, the name (Pace) has nothing to do with the English word pace. It's named after the creator (Pablo Lara) and his wife. He used the first two letters of his name (Pa) and added the first two letters of his wife's name (Ce) to get PaCe.
Pace is relatively new and somewhat unknown cultivar.
