Compressor operated grafting tool I'm hoping that one of the members will be able to direct me to a source for purchasing one of these grafting machines. I'd appreciate any comments on how well these work from your experiences.

Research Assistance Wanted -- Have any of you that live in the Intermountain West had any experience in growing pawpaw and/or American persimmon? I was recently awarded a research grant by the USDA to evaluate pawpaw and American persimmon in northern Utah. I'm currently at the University of Illinois, but will starting a new faculty position at Brigham Young University in August 2011. I know from firsthand experience that both species do well in Illinois, but I have no clue how they fare in Utah.

Not only would I like to find out your experiences in growing various cultivars of either species, I would like to find out more about what research needs you have that you would like addressed in future research (and also simply to get to know you).

If you have any information you could share with me, please e-mail me at

Pastor Chuck Orchards: Beginning in 1985, I started a modest apple orchard in Cushing, on the midcoast of Maine. What to name the orchard? I am an Episcopal Priest who was in private practice as a psychotherapist for 29 years. I am now full time in this wonderful new business. I go by my middle name, Waite, but am named after my great grandfather, Charles Waite. Some time ago my cousin, Gail Weber, as a lark gave me the name, Pastor Chuck. What a perfect name for the orchard, Pastor Chuck Orchards! Go to for products and information.
