Grow multiple fruits on one tree… This is known as “grafting”. Imagine having one tree with 2, 3, or 4 different fruits growing from it! This is great for people with smaller gardens who want to have all the same fruit as people with big gardens.
Now is the time to get grafting different fruits to one base tree so you can have a brilliant variety of fruits from one main tree! Sound like science fiction but you honestly can do this, it’s really easy and once you do one, you will want to do more!
Grafting and budding are fairly simple processes that involve cutting the branch of one type of fruit tree and cutting the other branch on an opposite angle. These two cuts are put together and often taped up until they begin to grow together.
These trees often have to be compatible for this to work.
Grafted Trees for Sale
You can also buy 5 in 1 fruit trees. When you find one of these you are looking at a tree that has been successfully grafted already and is ready to produce food.
This is a very effective means of harvesting multiple fruits in one small garden.
These premade grafted trees are often a little pricey but they are ready to harvest. This will save you a bunch of steps.
Of course, if you buy a prefabbed tree you will not learn the skill of grafting. So, you have to make a decision. Are you interested in the short term food harvesting or do you want to explore the skill on your own?
Don’t forget, you also have the means of doing both. You can buy a prefabbed tree and then create your own grafted tree right alongside it.
Have fun with learning how to grow multiple fruits on one tree. It’s an ancient practice that humans have been using for a long time!
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
