Citrus General Discussion / Re: Rooting C35 cuttings
« Last post by brian on Today at 06:23:48 PM »
the fruit from this rootstock tree has begun to turn orange.  Here is one I picked and cut open.  It smells slightly odd for citrus but hard to describe.  Juice tastes very sour and little else.

You think this is c-35?  Or if not, any idea what it might be?  The peel looks much thicker than the UCR pictures show for c-35 citrange:

Anybody want rootstock seeds?

This tree is gigantic now.  I have cut it back repeatedly this year and it still keep reaching the greenhouse roof.   It is extremely healthy and vigorous.

The fruit hasn't been so great, though.  I am thinking this one will be on the chopping block.  So far my Tarocco is the best tasting of my three blood oranges.

Anyone have a big collection of persimmons?  Whats your favorites?  Do you have multigraft trees?  Ive never been that excited for them but this years future are amazing.  I'm thinking of adding more.

Rollinia trees can grow fast. If you hand pollenate in spring, you may get fruit next year. If the tree is flowering now, I would not bother.  Winter fruit are bland and tough on the tree because it will loose its leaves soon.  The difficulty with hand pollenating rollinias is that they tend to flower male and female on alternating days. Collect pollen in the evening. Store it in the refrigerator in a small air-tight container or ziplock bag. Pollenate the females the next evening, 6pm or later.  I have a "dwarf" tree that fruits at a small size. The tree may abort some fruit when they are under an inch in diameter.

2 months they harden
Your leaves look elongated this is a reason of too much red light in your system and also a root bound issue for containers. Some UV light would be beneficial.
Yuzu is a slow growing plant, they need a cold rest, growing them under lights year round will not give you good fruits.
My fingerlimes flower and set fruit even now in cold. They are understory plants direct UV light from sun will make the fruit to drop.
This year I made a cross of faustrime x amoa 8, I expect the result to be a deep red faustrime.
Seedlings will take 3 years to bloom if they are grafted and grown in ideal conditions, that means grow lights during the winter, warm temperatures and good balanced nutrition.

While they can flower and fruit at that size, mine took a while (couple of years in ground from roughly your stated tree size).

Fertilization helps with flowering.

Hand pollinate when it does flower.
