graft death - Knowledgebase Question

Providence Forge, Ve
Question by derbygirl196

I bought a three grafted apple tree at HD. one of the grafts has died (the Fuji). Will this affect the rest of the tree? Should I cut off the dead graft, or is there and ever so slight chance that it will rebound next year?

I'd leave the tree alone - anything is possible! Apple trees need a second variety of apple for cross pollination and fruit set. As long as you have two different varieties still alive on your tree, you should get a crops of apples. Hope you have a great harvest!
