Need help ID
« on: July 20, 2019, 06:45:07 PM »
Hi,  I bought a bloody orange while back.  Almost died out after I plant it on the ground.  Last year there are some Scion started to pop out.  Some should be the bloody orange I purchased. Some look like from the rootstock, sucker.  I am planning to keep the sucker and let it grow some fruit so I can collect some seeds to germinate rootstocks.  Can someone help to identify what type of tree is this?

Thx

It appears that your rootstock is growing. I dont see the blood orange. Graft something on this apparent rootstock.

Thx Millet, I I'll let it grow to collect seeds.  I need rootstocks.
