Hello all. From the research I go from all of you here las year I planted a small Sugar Belle tree due to its HLB tolerance and the tree is rowing very well. Finding this tree was very difficult due to the demand. I have some more space in the yard and would like to plant another citrus tree. Are there any other options that have come out as being tolerant of the disease? My understanding is that the sugar belle was a release from UCF research. Perhaps they have had more options released within the last year? I would really love a ruby red grapefruit tree but not willing to risk planting a tree to have it not be able to produce or die if infected. I am on the space coast of Florida in 9b. Thanks everyone for any input possible.
