Alternate producing does not mean you will not get any fruit on off years, it just means the production will be lower. Mine produces fruit every year. Off years I see less production, but still produces enough for me.

2
No, not many at all

3
Eureka is not a good rootstock, it is prone to foot rott.

4
Ponkan, nice firm flesh & super sweet with a zipper skin.

You made a mistake there Millet. I have grown all the gold varieties & they are OK at best.

6
Mold.

If it were me, I would keep the watering schedule for quite a while & see how it works out for you. Here in the south, we have torrential downpours most of the summer & citrus thrive in these conditions. Also if your soil is very dry, giving a good soaking for a while can trigger the tree into blooming.

Looks like sunburn. 12 mins once a week in Phoenix? You're not giving it anywhere near enough water for the desert conditions you have there. I would give it a heavy dose of fertilizer & water it at least every other day for a good 30 minutes at a time.

I agree, it sounds like my Faustrime. I sent seeds to many people years ago. They come true & produce fruit in only a few years. If they turn yellow they are Faustrime.

Probably the bloodlime I sent Joe & he traded it for something he wanted from Byron.

I had a key lime I grew from seed years ago. It used to produce flowers at the tip of the thorn & fruit as well.

Ned used to sell them. Millet is correct, the fruit is about the size of a large pea & mostly seed.

Personally I find fingerlimes are not very good at all...

Just about all fingerlimes are "everbearing", not sure what's special about this one.

Yes.

I have a fast flowering trifoliata that is a dwarf. Haven't tried it as a rootstock yet. Guess it's time to try it.

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.

The white shoot will die off.
