Citrus General Discussion / Rootstocks ??
« on: September 18, 2017, 06:17:07 PM »
I was wondering if there is a chart somewhere that list the influence from rootstock to the quality of the fruit?
For example flying dragon is dwarfing but what will it do to the fruit? Why choose Carizzo and not any other variety capable for being rootstock?
The reason I'm asking is some trees need a lot of growth before fruiting. For container not really a good thing. So, I was thinking, what will happen if I use a citrumelo for a lemon to get faster maturity, and then use a mature cutting and put it on tri foliate?
Will the fruit of this new tree have the same characterisiks as the one previously growing on citrumelo?
This are only examples and hoping I explain what I'm asking (sometimes english is not my best especially in a new area)

Citrus General Discussion / Limon Rosso
« on: September 04, 2017, 09:19:43 PM »
Couple of weeks ago I sprouted some Citrus limonimedica pigmentata Rubra seeds. Watching them emerge from the deeps of the soil makes me happy. Planted six and looks like at least two of them are polyembrionic.  What I know so far that it is a very old variety. Not grown commercially because the fruit does not keep very long. A bit bigger then average lemon, thick rind, with lots of oil that is also used in the cosmetic industry. I bet the zest is great for baking too. Juice does not has the bitter after taste but also not as plentyful as other lemons. Still lots to learn about this lemon. I'm planning to graft some of them when a bit older. No idea how long they will need until first fruit.
Does anybody here has experience with this lemon?
Does grafting shorten the time until fruiting?

Citrus General Discussion / Cara Cara yellow leaves??
« on: August 29, 2017, 10:19:14 AM »
I got two cara cara a couple of weeks ago. Right from the beginning one looked very pale and the other one a bit more green. After re potting one of the plants really darkened and put out a lot of new growth while the other one did nothing but instead got more ad more yellow. I thought as long as the leaves are not falling off, still hope for a turnaround. Now the leaves are dropping, weather changes and no sign of any growth. What is wrong with this tree? Is there a chance it can survive?

and new growth

Citrus General Discussion / Clementino Rubino
« on: July 30, 2017, 01:39:21 PM »
My little seedling Clementino Rubino is showing some new growth. I think she likes her new home :)
I can see some new shots on the sides and makes me wonder if this variety is rather a bush form then a tree? Some of the leaves at the top were lost right after arriving and I think it might have been because of the heat while in transport. They also hat black tips. Everything new look nice :)

Citrus General Discussion / seedles??
« on: July 15, 2017, 01:00:31 PM »
If a fruit is described as seedless variety, does that mean it is really seedless or just very view seeds? How can we produce a seedless variety if there are no seeds? Maybe thinking too much.

Citrus General Discussion / Introduction :)

Hello everybody,
I'm raising citrus trees since about 4 years. I have Moro, ST Feminnello, Meyer, Kieffer, Persian Lime, Trovita, Cara cara, Mineola Tangelo, Variegated Pink Lemon, Valentine Pomelo and Oro Blanco.
Some of my trees :)

I bought an Pro Blanco Four years ago. It looks like it wants to grow but it is stuck. Some of the leafs show some brown kinda layer along the veins. What am I dealing with? can not find any info. But have the feeling I need to do something. Thank you for any help.
