Did this video help you?

Žiga Černigoj: Good idea, but I have some concerns. Is this fruit edible? I mean, if you graft a poisonous tree so that it grows apples, these apples are not edible. Ok, maybe better question: are trees poisonous?

dao nguyen: Yay I'm your 10,000th subscriber. Great socially conscious content!

goldmaz23: the problem is that they are not grafting the trees right . You dont graft up the limb, you do it close to the base . That way the grafted in tree will take over the tree .

laurie ann wilks: Great idea..

Jesus: Soo awesome!

slipping on the fruit is the worst argument against fruit trees lol

Mosby's men: how about a video on how to do the grafts

kued562: is this even legal?

Richard J. Francis: Root stock science is great. In the USA - nurseries have been selling 'roostertail' trees (orange / lemon / grapefruit) for years. Good maintenance and stewardship is essential (e.g. winter washing stems to avoid peach leaf curl etc). IF however - people harvest and look out for issues - there is no problem surely?!

B Charron: "it says in genesis, "Multiple and be plentiful, and I believe this is what the proverb actually means; to produce, and propagate."

Cindl Bergen: I visited Central America years ago and witnessed fruit trees growing in abundance throughout the urban areas. Then I returned to America and became enraged every time I saw a Bradford "Pear" on a city street. We need free and sustainable food in our society.

alphasxsignal: The city will lock her up for screwing with their trees.

Bohemian Wrecks: I have a buddy who has sown thousands of MaryJane seeds throughout a few cities. What a way to bless people.  I call him Johnny AppleWeed

tyreza79: can we graft any tree to any tree ? or there are rules ? in my city most trees have no familial relation to any fruit tree ? so whats is to do

Illyrien: Impressive, I did not know grafting could do that. I got to check out the limits, this should make it possible to make some rather interesting trees.

cryptoprocta: of course they would, but all of our food is heavily polluted with pesticides and herbicides anyway, and the same precautions would have to be taken before consumption

JeabAom555: Do the fruits pick up pollutants from the street environment?

caringpro: Thx, I'll check it out. I've never heard of it. Question: I have a useless ornamental manderin? orange tree which produces tin bitter oranges. Its in the dog run so gives shade to the dogs, I wouldn't want to get rid of it. but I'd like to change it into something edible fruit bearing. What would be good for grafting? Is it possible to get rid of the ornamental fruit & have the grafted branches take it over? If so, how? thx InventingJoy

Roxanne Sterling-Falkenstein: Check out the Moringa oleifera Tree videos ... perfect for San Diego. An important food tree that could naturalize down there!!

Uni Emailer: Of course it's the people that don't pay attention that have the most stupidity to spread around. Did you miss the part where the trees have tenders to prevent such atrocities? You need to eat some fruit.
