Dwarf fruit cocktail tree post to have little trunk. @sunlovin @Dragon_Warrior @KariSamuel

Kelsey, I would have to believe that once it is full grown & producing 5 different fruits a tiny little trunk will not support that kind of weight. Time will tell & my fingers & toes are tightly crossed for you, but these trees never do what the advertisement claims they should! 🤦‍♀️

Yes, I remember you saying that there were several types... 5 or 6... I was close! 😁

@kelsey92 @KariSamuel I'm still not convinced that it is more than one type since all the leaves look the same. But I guess time will tell. I have been told that with multigrafted trees you need to prune back the more vigorous variety very heavily or it will take over and kill off the others. I also hear that it often returns to a plum tree.

That would explain why there’s not many photos of it. 🤔🌞

@sunlovin @Dragon_Warrior - There are poor reviews online and not one that stated they have had bushels of any one variety, whatsoever.

If you want that to grow into a tree you should to remove all the bottom half leaves so it becomes a trunk, and the top half will grow better into branches. 🌞

@KariSamuel I think I understand now😊. Kinda confusing, there aren’t many photos how this is supposed to look on line. The trunk doesn’t look like it’s grafted, usually you can see them. So I’ll wait and see how this turns out. Interesting 🤔🌞

Wait, @kelsey92 what are we talking about here? Fruit cocktail includes peaches, pears, grapes and maraschino cherries. I would be very interested to see a tree, dwarf or regular, that produces all those different fruits. Especially cherries that are already maraschino right on the tree... #curiouscases

I would contact where you purchased it from to see what they recommend! Those roots look huge, so your pot will need to be HUGE too. Google 'How much bigger should my pot be than my fruit tree?'

Sweetheart call the place you got it from! I don't have any experience with this type of bare root tree. My citrus trees were grown from seed.
