How to Graft Fruit Trees

Grafting is simply inserting a cut twig from one fruit tree into a cut in another compatible fruit tree. Creating successful crossbreeds of similar plants and other flora is very rewarding. Most same fruit varieties can be grafted easily. Almost all citrus types are compatible with other citruses.

Things You'll Need:
Two compatible fruit tree twigs
Grafting tape
Grafting wax
Cellophane or plastic bag
Rubber bands
Sharp knife

Step1Cut two twigs from compatible fruit tree species. Twigs should be cut at a 45 degree angle to each other to form a close bond.

Step2Place twigs together allowing the small band of cells called the cambium (just under the bark layer) to match up as closely as possible.

Step3Secure the two twigs together using a commercially available grafting tape. Rubber electrical tape or duct tape may also be used. Place a rubber band around the grafting site firmly but not too tightly.

Step4Let the twigs fuse over two to three weeks for successful buds.for more search for your question.
Good luck.
