I been grafting fruit trees for many years in my nursery business and been always using parafirm grafting tape. Once I tested Buddy Tape on my grafts, never want to use parafirm grafting tape or Chinese grafting tape. Other grafting tapes can easily cook my grafts in the sun and they crack within a week or two but Buddy Tape doesn't do that. Buddy Tape costs much more but I don't have to worry about having no merchandises to sell next year or a special cultivar that I have a piece of. Buddy Grafting Tape is very stretchable, not so thick (your grafts can breathe), and won't crack for a while. Buddy Tape is the only grafting tape we want.
