Called yesterday. No longer carry flying dragon rootstock.  Seems the owner said- that in Florida flying dragon rootstock is on its way out. Not profitable for growers here.  Doesnt seem right but anyway..still looking. Thank you for the lead .

My large Cara Cara is growing on Flying Dragon root stock. The tree is now about 11 feet tall and wide.  - Produces abundant fruit.

Am I right when I think Flying Dragon is one of the least susceptible root stocks to 'greening' ? Tom

I buy citrus from brute leaf. I have a dwarf Cara cara from them I think I might keep. Not sure the rootstock although it is a dwarf. Red navals are my favorite

Nick Edibles- how old is your Cara Cara? Trying to keep it below 10 feet at max, thats why I ask. I love Navels too- when they are  spot on ripe -really no other orange can match its sweetness that Ive had the luxury of tasting anyway.
