Most of us want to plant and grow fruit trees at our home garden or in an orchard for their tasty fruits. There are many ways a fruit tree can be propagated – from seeds, from a nursery-bought seedling or by means of Air-layering. The problem with growing fruit trees from seeds is that it may take very long to bear fruits – some times more than ten years – and there is no guarantee that the fruits will taste same as the one from which you got the seeds.

Air-layering is one method of propagating a fruit tree from an existing one, which will bear fruits sooner, and the fruits will taste same as the mother-plant. See how to do this below:
