Citrus General Discussion / Re: Navel vs Hamlin zone 8B?
« on: December 04, 2021, 05:16:24 PM »
Hamlin ripens Sept-Oct. Navels late Dec... My variegated Hamlin survived that 2018 freak 16F freeze with very little damage.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Kumquat as rootstock?
« on: November 25, 2021, 10:53:39 AM »
I never said they make good rootstock, I've never tried them as rootstock. I have a changshu I grew from seed that is over 25 ft tall & produces hundreds of fruit every year & never had a issue...

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Is this a rough lemon?
« on: October 25, 2021, 05:21:53 PM »
It does appear to be rough lemon. It may have been a grafted tree & the rough lemon was the rootstock that took over after the original scion died back.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Should we be bare rooting trees?

>>> I have damaged many roots over the years & never had a setback.<<<

Damaged roots will certainly cause a set back to a tree, how damaging the set back depends on the amount of roots that were damaged.

If you say so... Once I up pot the trees in new soil, they almost immediately flush new growth. I guess that's what you call "set back"?

I have never had a issue & I bare root all of my trees when  moving up to larger containers. I have damaged may roots over the years & never had a setback.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Variegated section on Pink Finger Lime?
« on: September 30, 2021, 03:17:20 PM »
Best option would be to cut the branch about a inch above the last variegated leaf. That usually forces the nodes below to flush out. The may help create a few variegated branches.

Red grapefruit are a lot more hardy than you would think. I have two I grew from seed that are over 25 ft tall & have never been damaged by cold.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Which rootstock has more cold hardiness?
« on: September 16, 2021, 05:05:55 PM »
I really doubt a eustis on anything will get to the size of a satsuma...

Yes, the second photo is trifoliata (Rootstock).

Citrus General Discussion / Re: which nutrient deficiency (photo)
« on: September 16, 2021, 04:58:33 PM »
I use Osmocote 15-9-12 and a hand full of Epsom salt watered into my container trees every few moths with great results. In 9a you should have no problems with those in the ground.

If your Eustis gets to the size of satsumas, you don't have Eustis. Eustis only gets to the size of key lime or a little larger. Mine is on flying dragon, about 15 years old & the peel is thin.

Lol! Why would anyone want a xponcirus hybrid except for those in a cold climate? There are way to many good citrus you can grow, even into 8a.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Are these leaf minor eggs?

Indeed butterfly eggs, the larvae will destroy your leaves.

Cut the bottom at a 45 degree angle & dip them in rooting hormone.

They are rotten, toss them. When I root cuttings I wipe them down with alcohol & either wrap them or place a plastic bag over the container to keep them moist.
