Biosecurity restrictions in this country mean that the pale ichor of the dedaim is no longer to be had for love nor money, but we have found that for the purpose of melding animal circulation to the slower xylem and phloem of vascular plants, the sap of the deodand is an acceptable substitute.
As for the specific transgressive grafting you describe, in our experience it is better to err on the side of harvesting too early than waiting too late in the season, as the fruit are vulnerable to frost. Also they bruise easily so there is no mechanical substitute for manual harvesting.
encounters similar obstructiveness, but here it is not so easy to arrange for the disappearance of the protesters with a discreet beck to the wizened magician Dwerulas and a casual hint of one's displeasure.
* Not to be confused with the Hubris, whose struggle for self-determination we whole-heartedly support. US out of Hubristan!
