Here is a discussion I had with someone who is knowledgeable about citrus and citrus relatives.

It started with matievski stating that Glycosmis pentaphilla (aka Orangeberry, Rum Berry, ginberry, G.citrifolia, G.trifoliata) being an excellent rootstock for all citrus plants if you have soils with PH 8 and higher. Tolerates salinity of the soils.

The first message is at the bottom and the last message is at the top.


Dear matievski,

It looks like wampee and orangeberry are in the clauseneae tribe.  Where cirtus and Severinia are in the citreae tribe.  So wampee should be more graft compatible with orangeberry than the others.  I can send you a wampee scion if my grafting succeeds.

Thanks,

Dear snowjunky99,

Wampee is an interesting citrus family plant. Let me know if you have one for sale or for exchange, I would love to have one.
I do have Severinia boxifolia if you want to give it a try as a rootstock for Wampee.
Have you tried trifoliate orange?

Dear matievski,

We have high soil ph here in Phoenix too, but the citrus grow well on sour orange rootstock. Wampee (clausena lansium) on the other hand doesn't grow well here and doesn't graft well on citrus, so I will try to graft wampee on it. I think clausena and glycosmis are closer relatives than they are to citrus. Please let me know if you have a bigger one for grafting. Thanks.

Dear snowjunky99,

It is known fact that it is resistant rootstock for citruses. In south hemisphere it is most used rootstock due to tolerance of the soils with PH > 8.
they go vice-verse, I have mine grafted on lemon Myer for 3 years now. Fruiting constantly.

Dear matievski,

Thanks for the first one arriving in good shape. How do you know citrus will graft onto these? Did you read it somewhere or tried it yourself? Please point me to that information. Thanks. I'm not buying these for grafting, but will try it if true.

Tropical Fruit Buy, Sell & Trade / Re: Luc's Mexican Garcinia plant

All four seedlings are in 6 inch pots, but the soil might be too heavy or wet.  I will repot. Thanks.

It's too much work to grow Myrciaria/Plinia in our salty alkaline soil here in Phoenix.

Hi all fruitnatics,

I'm looking for Luc's Mexican Garcinia plants at least a foot tall or 5 pairs of leaves. 
I'm willing to pay or trade scion wood of other fruit trees.

All my seedlings over a year old still only have two leaves. I guess they don't like the Phoenix AZ weather.

Thanks Ricardo. 
I'm hoping someone has extra plants they can sell. 
I would like to try these two in Phoenix Arizona and share my experience here.
Getting plants instead of seeds would be a bonus.
I have about 70 subtropical and temperate fruit trees varieties growing in my yard.
