You need to use the img tags to make the image viewable...

Yes.

Flying dragon has curved thorns & contorted growth habit. What you have is standard trifoliata.

Heinrich very nice find & healthy plants.

Millet it may take that long in a container, in the ground you know I have two ruby reds that both set their first fruits at 5 years. They are both over 25 ft tall now & produce 100's of fruit each year.

SoCal once again you show your ignorance... Grafting immature buds will not speed up the process. Lol!

That budstick you used wasn't the best for cleft grafting. Looks like ever point is forked. There are probably still a few "hidden" buds, but it may take quite a while for them to force. When cleft grafting you want to use wood from newer growth that has nice fat visible buds, not something that has already branched... That nonsense above is just that, nonsense...

It does look like sunburn. Most citrus are raised in a shade house & quickly moving them out into direct sun will cause this especially desert sun. They are not lacking for water or they would wilt.

In CA, your best bet for "rootstock" for those varieties would be C35...

I'll be grafting some from mine & have them available in the spring.

I use one of the bottles that attaches to the hose & fill it with Dawn dish detergent & spray any tree I see mites in. Works pretty damn good & I get the Dawn for $1 at the dollar store. I just reuse these bottles & fill them with Dawn.

Isn't yuzu and ichang papeda IVIA lemon varieties

No, as you stated they are "papeda" not "Citrus limon". Not even close.

You're not going to fing any lemon that will survive in Atanta without MAJOR protection.

I would say that rooted is less hardy than seed grown is nonsense.

Brian, I use nail clippers to remove thorns & small branches on the rootstock. When I cut the bud, I put it in my mouth the keep it moist. Now cut the inverted T in the rootstock, take the blade & stick it in the lower part of the bud & slide it up into the cut you made. Wrap from the bottom up & leave it wrapped for 3-4 weeks. After 3-4 week, slice the parafilm on the back side of where the bud is & remove it. If it's still green you succeeded...  Now cut the rootstock a inch or two above the bud (Don not cut it flush with the top of the bud as sometimes you will get a little dieback at the top of the budstick where you cut it). Once your bud has grown out & has hardened off then you can cut it flush.
