Citrus General Discussion / Re: CCPP order on C-35 rootstock?
« on: May 25, 2020, 02:43:20 PM »
I grow my own. I have multiple trees just for that purpose. Clay soil is the norm here unless you're right on the beach. Swingle does much better in clay.

Best I have found for here in Charleston is Swingle.

That's a lemon, not a satsuma.

Pomello does not come true from seed.

Citrus ichangensis should have a large petiole or double leaf...

Some type of "quat"...

Sometimes... I have various lemons that I top, and the new growth pushes right where I topped it. On these trees I have to continue topping it or move down & top lower.

Is that albino citrus grafted or seedling?

It's grafted, but not albino.

I do have a pecan tree in my yard. It produces way more nuts than my family & friends could ever use.

This was my old standard trifoliata. Bonnie Childers sent me the budwood. I tried to move it & it died...

You ban citrus from China then the chinese can ban pecans from USA and you end up nowhere just creating instability for the mafia to take advantage.

You just have no clue do you? Here in the US, we have way more wild pecans than we could ever need.

Lmao! Where do you get your information, CNN?

I avoid anything chinese, probably the biggest reason I refuse to set foot inside a walmart.

This is mine after 15+ years in the ground. Long before someone made up the name "snow dragon"...

I have a variegated flying dragon that I have had for years. It has never fruited or grown much.

Eureka is the most common lemon you will find in the stores & they are usually small. Lisbon is a larger lemon & superior to Eureka. I don't bother growing Eureka as they are cheap & readily available in every grocery store. The KR2 Feminello is a excellent selection as is the ST Tesresa.

Eureka is my least favorite true lemon. I would go for a Lisbon if you are looking for a easy to get lemon. The Italian varieties are all superior for their peel oil content.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Super happy kumquat tree!

If it's going to remain a container tree, I would cut the two main limbs at about 24" from the soil line. That will force the tree to branch out lower down & make for a fuller "manageable" plant...

Gene Lester has grown that for years.

Break the rootstock about 2 inches above the highest t-bud and leave it attached for a few weeks.
