I bought some Swingle and Rubino Clementine seeds from you in December of 2016 and planted them in a seed starter on January 1 2017.
Here is a picture of one of the Swingle trees I planted in ground when it was about 6 months old, it is now 8' tall in just over 2 years.
A question I have, is what is your experience with this variety, how long to flower the first time and has this been a good root stock for most orange varieties for you?

The Rubino Clementine seeds were fantastic, out of 6 seeds I got 9 plants, I have read that many others had the same experience with them.

Looking good. You may get blooms on the tree this spring. Mine started flowering @ 3 years old.

Yes, these make excellent rootstock for everything I have grafted to them including lemons.
