I have a Hass seedling that sprouted today & am looking to source Kona Sharwil wood once it grows to the right size for grafting. In addition, this will be my first attempt at grafting. Good times

Going to be joining you there, I have that avocado seedling that is doing nicely. Want to graft with something similar.

Dr. Mary Lou Arpaia and her assistant Eric Focht are in charge of dispensing budwood for the U. of Cali. I emailed them a while back and didn't get a reply. If any one has any suggestions of getting hold of bud wood I'd certainly like to know. I have 6 seedlings ready to graft, at least I think they're ready. They have trunks about 3/8" diameter.

Guys, I may have some small Sharwil scions to share this summer. My tree is a bit small now. Do not forget the "Green Scene" by you R. It is a good source for unique avos.
