Grafting Citrus Trees with the Patch Bud - Making a Fruit Cocktail Tree

Patch budding is a method of grafting citrus trees that is very easy and that gives a high success rate.

In the past year I performed many patch bud grafts of citrus and found that it works very well as a technique for adding new varieties to an existing citrus tree to make a multi-grafted citrus cocktail tree. Although the particular graft demonstrated in this tutorial is of a Mato Buntan pummelo, I also found that patch budding works well for grafting orange trees, grafting lemon trees, and grafting lime trees. I expect that it would work well for any type of citrus.
