Sadly disappointed with the gold nugget sold at my local grocer here in Texas. Perhaps they were picked early by (Sunkist) and stayed in a cooler before arriving here in Texas. I have read so many wonderful reviews about them and payed top dollar for the fruit here. Is there a difference between the ones I've read about on-line and the ones sold by Sunkist?

Millet,  your description of the grafted Logee's trees matches my observations, healthy scion but heavily rootbound rootstock.  The only difference is, that when you visit Logee's in person, you can pick out slightly larger trees.  I hope it does well for you.


Blake, the containers are probably only 3.5 to 4 inches deep.  The roots take up the vast majority of the space.
