Are Your Going To Purchase A Sugar Belle Mandarin?

Then get one growing of the root stock Swingle.

Although trees used in the study were not infected with HLB, Killiny notes that Sugar Belle® trees with Swingle citrumelo rootstock produced the greatest amounts of two compounds known to have antimicrobial effects, quinic acid and ferulic acid. Consequently, it appears likely that Sugar Belle® will tolerate HLB best when grown on Swingle citrumelo, because the two acids would probably limit the bacterial population, or titer, in an infected tree. These results led the team to conclude that, among the three rootstocks tested, Swingle citrumelo is probably the best choice for optimizing greening tolerance in Sugar Belle®.  (Citrus News)

Luak, there is not a chance that HLB will ever be in Colorado.

The study only used 3 different rootsocks, of the 3, swingle was the best.

Countryboy is correct, however the three rootstocks used were the three most used rootstocks by the commercial citrus industry.   This study is also going on with testing of many more rootstocks.

I checked the tag on my tree and it says 'Sour". Another one I believe is an airlayer.

Been growing out a seedling for several years now in Texas.
Not available in Texas. Seedling grown out for buds put on swingle.
