Some of this years Graft union photos

The first 3 photos are some cleft grafts. The first 2 are of apples with the 3rd being a plum. The last photo of this series of 4 photos is a splice graft, or whip graft (with no tongue) of an apple. Note the amount of callus tissue, the thickness is over half the diameter of the rootstock.
