I grow all of my lemons on Swingle & have never had a issue.

Like I said, I would go with some type of sour orange. There are many different types in Europe.

Petiole is not large enough to be grapefruit or pummelo.

Not a mandarin, possibly sour orange.

Owari is probably the oldest of the propagated satsuma's & the most common but far from the best. The Top 3 are probably BC1, Brown select & Miho. I have grown them all & still have about 20 tree's. I removed a my Owari & a few others that I didn't find as good. Another top rated mandarin would be Ponkan.

Flying dragon has contorted stems. Standard trifoliata doesn't.

Flying dragon also causes severe benching which is why I no longer use it.

Lol! Try to convince yourself of that! You have either been brainwashed or truly uninformed.

Trifoliata or swingle is great for satsuma. You are going to want to put plastic bags over the sticks you're trying to root, but I doubt they will root.

That's insane. By comparison, here's a budstick of Genoa lemon JoeReal sent me a few weeks ago.

Rootstock that has a dwarfing effect (that's usually the point) induces trees to flower and fruit earlier in their lifetime, and that probably also means flowering a little earlier in the season, during the early part of their lifespan.

100% False... This is the problem with keyboard experts. Grafting a bud or cutting from a immature non producing tree will in no way make it flower sooner or earlier in the season..

Once you rub the skin off your tongue to get the trifoliate resin off you will know that nothing edible comes from trifoilate.


That's a fact!

Inverted t-budding is my go to, but the bark must be slipping. If not then cleft or chip budding.

Mine is over 20 ft & like a bean pole. I also got the budwood from Stan & grafted it to trifoliata. It is at least 12 years old. Exact same growth habit as ponkan. This was the first time it was ever damaged & was the first time it was ever covered with ice & then snow for almost a week...

Don't waste your time. Find a member with a plant & get a cutting. They root like weeds... Have you ever tried Meyer? They are disgusting if you ask me. I sent the few I had to the compost pile years ago.

Ummmmm.... No. Lmao! Trifoliata has a very nasty taste. The juice is very gummy.

Most pure trifoliata have similar size leaves, yours seems to have an elongated center leaf which would indicate possibly a citrange. Swingle has a much longer center leaf, so it's not swingle.

There's nothing sweet about trifoliata. Once it fruits it will be easier to tell what it is. If it's pure trifoliata it will produce golf ball size fuzzy fruit. Either way, it;s not something you will enjoy eating. It is indeed a great rootstock, or ornamental tree in a cold location.

My best suggestion to taking advice on citrus is to look at their own citrus collection. It speaks volumes on who you should trust for advice.

You can also chip bud with high success on small diameter rootstock.
