Citrus General Discussion / Four winds nursery - Owari Satsuma
« on: July 12, 2019, 11:51:50 PM »
After a long week of waiting, my Satsuma trees are finally here.  Here are pictures of of them including the high in case someone hadn't ordered from four season before.  They are the entry-level.  All the trees look healthy and good condition.  I am happy with them.  I will repot them in a 5 gal pot tomorrow morning.

They are whip graft.

Thanks Will2358 for the correction.

I don't know. She lives in Beaumont. Pays $2250.00 house note per month. $3000.00 per annum property taxes. House only has 1235 square feet in it. Thats pretty steep to a SG like me. She tells me I would like the weather but.......

The house pricing in California is so ridiculous right now.  You cannot buy a house for 1/2 mil in LA county.  Even though I like to weather like here, nice and sunny.  I won't live here when I am retired.  My sister-in-law live in Oregon, her house with 3 big bedrooms and a large liveroom with over 1800SF only for 75K, and the lot is over 1 acre, but she cannot plant any of the fruit tree that I plant her due to the snow weather.

No. You have to be a registered grower to get budwood from Texas and when its all said and done the price is higher than ccpp. I paid $600.00 for ccpp wood this year...$2.50 per budeye..........😥.

Bomand,  move to California, only $1.5 per bud.  ;)

The Satsuma is flowering again.  Is it normal for satsuma?

A solo cup, plastic bag, and the sun.


I am doing that way too, but after everyone said rooting satsuma from cutting is very hard.  I want to increase the success rate, wondering to buy a germinator to increase the success rate.

What do you recommend?  I am looking for a germinator.

If your in L.A. area foothills then it looks like Pecan to me!

I found it in the L.A. hiking trail.

I spotted this tree while when I were hiking.  Does anyone know what is it and the fruit is eatable or not?

Great on those cuttings and the seeding.  My tangerine tree is from seed, it took 5-6 years to flowers.  The first year of flowering were only few fruits, 2rd year was doing a lot better.  The fruit are more tasty than the one I bought from the market. 

661 has AeroGarden Ultra LED with Seed Pod Kit AeroGarden Ultra (LED) with Gourmet Herb Seed Pod Kit

Anyone tried this unit to root fruit tree cutting?

Since the satsuma is very hard to root from cutting.  I ordered 4 more from four seasons. I love satsuma.  I am rooting some Trifoliata for rootstocks.  Hope it is easier to root from cutting and ready for next spring.

Here is the pic of the unidentified tree flower look like.

Certainly appears to be in fabaceae.

I'm really curious as to the plant.

Finally, I know what type of tree of it.   guamuchil

Seanny, that is a good idea.  I can graft on the sucker of my blood orange tree, then air-layer in the future.  Thanks...

Thanks for the heads up Iebmung.  It is really hard to root Satsuma from cutting.  I read an article that might help increase the success rate from fruitmentor.  Coconut coir, right temp, lighting and heating pad.  I don't have the those setting, but LA current temp is around 80 degree, cover them with a plastic bag to keep them moist, moist them every today, and rooting hormone.  Just want to try it.

Thanks for the advice.  Next time, I need to find rootstock.  I don't want to mess with my current trees.

Trifoliata or swingle is great for satsuma. You are going to want to put plastic bags over the sticks you're trying to root, but I doubt they will root.

Thx Laaz,  is trifoliate easy to root?  I saw some sucker from blood orange tree start to grow.  I can root that for my rootstock if it is easier to root.

Thx Millet.  I won't move to Fl then.  Happy July 4th everyone in US.

I don't have a good rootstock right now so I go ahead to root them in the pots.  Wish me luck. 

If all failed, I will order more to graft.
What is a good rootstock for satsuma?

Thanks Bomand,

I thought order 6 buds mean 6 sticks.  Look like I got a good deal from CCPP.  Ordered 6 buds get over 12 buds.    ;D

Citrus General Discussion / CCPP budwood
« on: July 03, 2019, 11:54:13 PM »
First time order from CCPP.  I ordered 6 buds from CCPP and it arrived only 2 budwoods.  I don't know how ccpp work, is 6 buds = 6 budwoods or 6 buds in the budwood?  Can anyone answer my question?

I will try try rooting the budwoods tomorrow morning.

Thanks in advance...
