High Point Enterprise, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1974, High Point, North Carolina 4b High Point Enterprise wednesday september 251974 r Andy sends a Complete 20 volume set the Merit students encyclopedia to Jerry Weikle age 10 of new port news Virginia for his question How do seedless oranges reproduce Oak Trees grow from atoms and Beans produce bean plants in nature seeds Are expected to produce plants like their parents this is How nature worked for billions of years to clothe our world with greenery Flowers and fruits then came Mankind the patient Gardener he worked in partnership with nature together they produced and reproduced an endless variety of improved plants seedless oranges Are Possi ble because gardeners found ways to improve natures wild oranges the original varieties bore sour Little fruit called bitter oranges however those sturdy wild Trees could survive a lot of hardship in the wilds gardeners selected the Best types pampered then and Cross pollinated them to produce better fruit but their pampered Trees were less sturdy and sometimes the seeds were useless however they discovered a faster surer Way to reproduce their biggest sweetest oranges the miraculous method is called grafting and grafting does not depend upon seeds to produce seedless oranges it depends upon an amazing layer of Plant cells called the cambium no doubt you have wondered How a tree adds new rings of Wood around its trunk they Are created by the cambium a thin layer of growth cells that lies just below the bark and it so happens that the cambium layer around one tree can unite with the cambium around a Twig or trunk of another tree this is the secret of grafting a grafted tree is actually two none it grows together from a Rootstock and a scion As a Rule the Rootstock of a seedless Orange tree came from a bitter Orange tree similar to its sturdy wild ancestors the scion is a Twig taken from the boughs of a pampered seedless Orange tree to make the graft the Stem of a Young Rootstock tree is Cut Down the bark is tenderly sliced and peeled Back to expose the layer of cambium the scion Twig is sliced so that cambium cells Are exposed at the Cut sur face then the Twig is placed so that its cambium is in close Contact with the cambium of the Rootstock the grafted surgery is sealed in place and the two layers of cambium grow together As one in time the grafted Twig becomes the trunk and boughs of an Orange tree because it grows from a Twig taken from a seedless Orange tree it too will produce seedless oranges meantime the Rootstock grows the Strong sturdy Root system that feeds and supports the seedless tree maybe the Rootstock grew from the seed of a bitter Orange but no seed was needed to grow the top of the grafted tree which produces the seedless oranges As a Rule the seeds of our pampered Orchard Trees produce stringy Little fruits like their wild ancestors for this reason most of them Are grafted Trees their Root stocks come from sturdy Trees that Bear poor fruit their trunks and boughs grow from grafted scions taken from Trees that Bear big Juicy fruit and Al this is possible because patient Gar Denert work in partnership to improve natures plants Andy sends a seven volume set of the chronicles of Nik to Radha Prath Ikawati age 10 of Montgomery Alabama for her question is there any evidence of a 10th planet some time ago
