Mango is one of the most important tropical fruits grown in southeast provinces of Iran (Sistan Baluchestan & Hormozgan). Due to the favorable coastal climate conditions in the region mango is extensively grown in these areas. This experiment was carried out at the tropical fruit research station of Bahokalate in Sistan Baluchestan province between 1997 and 1998, using 8-month-old seedlings raised from local mango trees. The experiment was conducted in a split plot at randomized complete block design, with 3 replications. Grafting was made at 6 fortnight intervals between April 4 and June 19, employing three methods including side grafting, softwood grafting and shield budding. Results showed that the highest percentage of grafting success (67.2%) was obtained with grafting in April 4, and side graftings and softwood graftings generally gave higher success rates after 90 days than shield budding (side graftings 65.8% , softwood grafting 63.7% and shield budding 47.5%). After 180 days, the percentage of the grown scions and the length of those grafted in April 4 were 55% and 57.9 cm, respectively. After this period, the percentage of the grown scions and the length of the scions in the side grafting method were 65.6% and 60.6 cm, respectively, indicating better results for this method over the other two.
