Does rootstock hasten fruit ripening in citrus?
« on: September 22, 2019, 02:25:27 PM »

  I read some info online about grape rootstock affecting rate of ripening. I hope it also occurs in citrus.

The best advice is to choose a root stock that is adapted to the soils and climate in which the tree is going to be planted;  As a general rule the faster a tree grows the poorer the fruit quality.

 Thanks Millet. I was mentioning about the rate of ripening not the rate of growth or rate of maturity. For example, a certain citrus ripe in January might be pushed to have fruits ripening in December when grafted onto a poncirus rootstock.

I think FD is the only who affects the ripening coupled with warm temperatures.
