I'll call bullshit on that one.

I was looking through Etsy today found a listing for red fingerlime tree's. Looked through the sellers feedback and... This FL seller is shipping citrus to CA & TX. It is insane that the USDA is not monitoring these sites...

Yes, I get it on lemons mostly, but oranges as well. No big deal.

The only variegated citrus that produces variegated plants from seed is the sour orange. All others will produce albino's

Looks like rust mite damage.

A natural hybrid of bitter orange and lemon, bergamot grows all around the Seto Inland Sea area where it is known by a variety of names, including the Southern Yellow pictured here. It is a fragrant, juicy citrus with a kick of spice in its flavor that makes it very appealing and versatile in cooking. Its peel, juice, and segments are used in hot and cold drinks, salads and dressings, as a garnish for seafood and meat dishes or an ingredient in their marinades and glazes, and for jams, marmalades, and desserts. Softer and sweeter than other tart cooking citrus, its luscious spicy richness can also be enjoyed raw.

Season: November - January
Prime Location: Kochi Prefecture

OK... You can not import any citrus into the US from other countries. In FL you can not get citrus from any other state.

I've had this happen on lemon trees when it sends up a very vigorous new sprout. It clears up on the next normal flush. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I normally just break the rootstock  about 2 inches above the graft & leave it attached until the bud flushes.

It doesn't look too good. Looks like the area around the bud is drying back.

It is caused by the tree taking up water faster than the peel can expand.

There was a seller in FL selling the red ones on Etsy...

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.

No, not many at all

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

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.
