My rootstock transplant.
« on: April 10, 2024, 03:47:09 PM »
I replaced my Incompatible Kuharske Citrange rootstock on my dyeing Meiwa kumquat with a flying dragon roots.  I used an approach graft.

I skinned the bark off the 2 trees touching surface and wrapped them together.  It took 1.5 years for the graft to seal.  I then cut the bark of the Kuharske below the graft and waited a 1/2 year before removing the trunk of the Kuharske.  It was the easiest graft to make.

poncirusguy, instead of taking that many months/years, why didn't you just graft the Meiwa scionwood onto any FD seedling or any other tree? 

Seems like a long time to get the Meiwa growing well again. I grafted my UCR budwood scion wood to a branch and it had 4 normal size fruits the next year. Not sure what advantage there was for you to use approach graft for an easy to graft Meiwa.

After dozens of tries I have been unable to do any graft of Meiwa kumquat.  If my record keeping is correct I have finally got a Meiwa/ FD graft to take.  I have a couple of FD seedlings I plan to plant next to my in ground Meiwa trees to do rootstock transplants with them.  I have 2 of my 4 seed grown in ground Meiwa trees die quickly.

Meiwa grafts well to macrophylla, why not grow some seeds of it.

I have extra seeds if you want to grow your own rootstock. I have 12 citrus varieties grafted on my large macrophylla and no issues so far with compatibilty. The Meiwas grafted on the macrophylla is growing very fast while my other 2 Meiwa purchased from the nursery still hasn't grown much at all.

My wife will divorce me if I ask for any seeds.  She said the citrus must go. Any tree that does not set fruit will be tested for cold hardiness this winter in my zone 6b climate.  Like a deck of cards marriage needs 2 hearts and a diamond and ends with the need for 2 clubs and a spade
