A grafted tree is for the purpose of bearing fruits earlier than the natural waiting period. An example is a mango tree that bears fruit after 4 years or so from the seedling. But a grafted mango tree can bear fruit in 2 years. Gardeners in the plant nurseries are well-versed with grafting and marcotting, those 2 most popular means of making the tree bear fruits quicker.
Ordinarily, a grafted tree does not grow very tall and it also has a short life span. However, it can have a longer life if it will be pruned from time to time. Truly a grafted tree has many advantages.
