ADVANTAGES OF GRAFTING FRUIT TREES
Since the beginning of horticulture, man has realized that it is possible to increase the efficiency of the garden by selectively growing strong and productive trees and abandoning weak and low-yielding trees. At first, there were only tree species that grew wild or sprouted from planted seeds. Trees grown from seed are considered to be sexually propagated and although they partially resemble the parent tree, they are usually always distinct from each other.
