Thanks Mike. Makes it a pain in the ass if you just want to upload from the phone.

She doesn't chew my plants (yet), but she's like a bulldozer & walks right over & through stuff instead of going around. Some of my Eugenia's are pretty beat up from here plowing through them...

It would have to be a critter with no taste buds. The trifoliata that falls from my tree sprouts in clumps where the fruit fell in the fall, nothing will touch it. We have coons, possums & armadillos around & they never touch the poncirus. They will however eat the swingle fruit if I don't collect it quickly. The sweet citrus if left on the tree too long is first attacked by birds which peck holes in the  fruit. I have even witnessed humming birds feeding on hanging fruit.

Rottweiler ladies are cute and intelligent, while males are stubborn brutes ;D

Lol! Bella is as stubborn as a mule when she wants to be.

I think I picked the right name after having her for a month,,,

The images are loaded correctly. If you right click on a image that appears to be sideways & select "view image" it shows the original image. It's something with the way this forum handles images.

level of cold hardiness order for kumquat and common related hybrids

While Meyer lemon is the cold hardiest of the true lemon varieties, and I am a really big fan of lemons, I'm just not really a big fan of Meyer lemons.
(But that's personal preference, some people say Meyer is their favorite lemon variety)

It was only a matter of time. Gene said the same thing last time I talked to him.

I'll have to try out some C35. Let me see if I can find some seed or seedlings. I'm growing lemons from seed right now to use as rootstock for my lemons. I know Eureka for one doesn't do well on trifoliata rootstock.

10
I no longer use Flying Dragon for anything. Way to slow for me. Pruning can help keep your trees in check & help them bush out as well. My fast flowering trifoliata grows a bit faster, but is also a dwarf. My original tree is 15 years old & only 7 ft tall.

11
I can tell you swingle is quite fast & makes a larger tree. This is what I mostly use.

12
Looks like most lemons they are using Yuma Ponderosa lemon as the rootstock.

Grapefruits & pummelo's they are using Carrizo citrange or C-35 citrange

13
Pick you variety & have a look at what UCR uses. All the rootstocks are listed on their varieties.

I think the best variegated orange I have, is my blood orange. The blood is just speck's in the flesh, not deeply pigmented but the variegation is excellent.

That all depends on what rootstock they are grafted to. Lemon & grapefruit are probably the fastest, but if they are on Flying dragon or trifoliata they will not be fast at all.

It's on FD, so not large. Also got knocked back by the Jan 2018 freeze. I'll try to get photos later.
