Brian will you only grow citrus in there? Any idea how many trees you can fit in there?

Mark that picture looks just awesome. Love the hot orange in the snow and your little poochies too ;)
Have to look for the Orlando tangelo. Is this commercially available?
I ordered three poncirus trivoliate orange and will try grafting. My trees are all growing in containers and kept in the house with artificial light. So some of the criteria are different then for in ground grown.
If I try to find sour orange, where is the best place to look?

Ilya thank you for the list. Although can identify some words, can not really read and need to translate first.
Millet thank you for the explanation. So, that means all dwarfing root stocks will produce better tasting just smaller fruits (simplified)
I will study the Florida root stock selection guide :)

Mark what makes you think the flying dragon root stock induce chlorosis? I don't understand why it prolongs dormancy and does this really matter for container grown trees that are kept warm year round?

Sadly monoculture helps speeding this disease  no doubt about. I the disease is in your area I doubt your tree will stay healthy just because you only have two or three trees.

Thank you Millet. I understand influence about growth container or in ground and drarfing to have more trees per acre. But what about fruit quality, taste, sugar content? does that not count for container growth either?

Oh I would love to know how to create something like pigmented keylime.
What is splicing and how is this done?

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 / Re: Can I get an opinion on Ponderosa Lemon ??

I had no Idea what mal secco is and had to read up on it. Looks like it has similar action like fireblight in apple/pear trees.

Here is what I found. Of course I'm not an expert just trying to figure things out

Femminello Zagara Bianca (or Fior díarancio)
Probably deriving from Femminello comune (through vegetative mutation), this fine cultivar, which tolerates well the Phoma tracheiphila, has a continuous blossoming and a high productivity: it can produce on average the 18% of bianchetti, the 36% of verdelli and the 46% of lemons; the last two, with a good commercial quantification.

Femminello siracusano (or Femminello masculuni)
Probably deriving from Femminello comune (through bud-mutation), this type of lemon is a very vigorous plant, with a rapid growth and a fructification ahead of time compared to that of the other Mediterranean lemon trees. It has a certain spontaneous reflorescence and can produce on average the 85% of lemons (because the Primofiore is earlier), the 4% of bianchetti and the 11% of verdelli. This cultivar is of a fine quality, and so it is very appreciated on the market also for its high productivity and for the early growth of the fruit; anyway, it shows some defects: for example, it canít tolerate well the Phoma tracheiphila.

Lory does not seem to be the same. Zagara Bianca is producing at least 4 crops per year .

Citrus General Discussion / Re: clay soil amendments?
« on: September 10, 2017, 02:30:48 PM »
Michigan has a lot of clay, and areas with no clay seem to be silt, equally bad I think. There is a big green house near where I live and they have a huge grapefruit tree in there. i have not figured out yet if the container it is in, is bottomless or not but think for places with unfit soil it would be a good solution?

is this what I can use for grafting? Or where would I find a citrumelo? I guess there are different kinds of citrumelos?

Thank you Ilya. I just had a conversation with a citrus grower from Sicily. He recommended either volcameriana or citrumelo.
So, I think the citrumelo will be my choice. The question would be, where to get it?
Is this citrus easy to find? Where?

Silvain yes I know it is different then an ordinary Lemon and that is exactly why it interests me. I would like to find as much information as possible. Could you please tell me more about the fruit? What was it that you did not like? What did you use is for? How long did you own this tree? Different in growing and management then other citrus trees?
Thank you and appreciate any info you can give me :)
