Kunzea pomifera is a native food species that has a potential for fresh berry markets. Cultivation of this species can help ensure a consistent, high quality and reliable supply. Grafting K.pomifera onto a rootstock such as Kunzea ambigua has the potential to overcome many cultivation deficiencies. Grafting could help extend its geographical range, increase disease resistance and improve the cultivated form. Wild collected Kunzea pomifera was grafted to cutting grown K.ambigua using the side-veneer technique. A union rate of 50% was achieved which was encouraging, considering that the scion were collected from the wild, the rootstock was pot-bound and the pots intermittently dried out in the fog house.
