Nippon Orangequat
« on: May 26, 2022, 08:05:39 PM »
Am wondering about my plant. It's about 5 years old and growing straight up...thick with branches but straight up about 15' high. Not a flower yet. This thing has some wicked thorns on it...dangerous.  Does this sound like a Nippon Orangequat to y'all ?   Thanks for any info.

Is this a grafted tree or one you grew from seed?

A picture would help.  Nippon Orangequats are slow growers.

Here is my Nippon Orangequat. The size, leaf and a thorn are pictured. What y'all think? Still need to find out how old and where I got it. Don't think it's grafted. This thing never has made a blossom.

It must be a seedling, my grafted orangequat was fruiting at 2ft tall and yours is huge.   I am not sure exactly when to expect fruit, the only seedling citrus I have grown are rootstock.  You have a very healthy looking tree, though.

A tree that size without bloom must be a seedling grown tree.  Normally 7 - 9 years from planting to bloom for your seedling tree.
