Wild mangoes are smaller and less pulpy. You can get such mango trees in any forest. You need to select one mature tree and then graft it with a hybrid mango of your choice… say Alphonso, Payri, or Kesar… or any variety popular in your area.
Now, for a little over a year, you need to keep a watch if there is any growth apart from the graft. If you notice any such growth, it needs to be snipped. All the energy of the mother plant needs to be directed at the graft.
When we plant a tree in the garden, we need to take all care like proper watering, application of fertilisers and pesticides, etc. Still they sometimes wither. But plants growing locally or in the wild do not need much care.
The reason is that any hybrid plant needs to adapt itself to the environment. But when grafted properly with a local plant, it adapts itself faster. Mango grafting should not be done during peak summer. The best time is just before or after monsoon when it is cooler.
The best part is that using one mother plant, you can grow two-three varieties of mangoes. Thus, you can pluck Alphonso Payri, Kesar and Totapuri from the same tree. But when grafting for the first time you need to consult an expert.
