Cory, none of my Red Clementines were fused together.   Over the years I don't recall ever seeing fused nucellar seedlings.

Millet, those Blood Clementine Seedlings are interesting.  Many more of them are still sending up additional multiple seedlings.  Several of mine now have as many as 5 coming from the one seed even though the first seeding came up several days ago.   I went back today to see if I could now separate the ones that seemed to be fused together.  Today they had developed their own roots and I cut through the small spot where they were fused together.   They were easily divided after that and I think they will be fine on their own.  I am surprised I never have seen any fused together like that before and found several like that in this batch.  I wish I had taken a picture, but I forgot.  There are still more mutiples coming up, so maybe some of those will be fused too and I can get a picture.  It is also interesting to me that this one with the large leaf is one of them that was fused.  It has such a different shaped leaf than all the others, even it's twin.

Cory, that is a fascinating leaf structure.  Chances are as the seedling produces more foliage the new leaves will grow out normal.  But you never know.  I had one Red Clementine that developed two nucellar seedlings, then nothing more.  So I transplanted them, then  about a week after they were in their own pots, another nucellar seedling broke through the soil surface and began to grow.

Do you have to graft the blood clementine trees once they start to grow?

I'm interested in some of these seeds.

I planted the Red (Blood) Clementine seeds that I got from Lazz last January. Some of the seeds produced just one seedling, and some of the seed produced multiple (nucellar) seedlings. Last week I was stunned to see three of the now 3" tall seedlings have now sent up another nucellar seedling tree, after almost 80 days since all germination was "finished".
