Would like to buy some but I don't think it is time to graft yet. I am in SoCal. I grafted a bit early last year and scions choked with sap overflow.

Will you be selling in late March?

Citrus General Discussion / CCPP Budwood Price Hike
« on: January 07, 2022, 07:42:23 PM »
Anyone noticed price per bud raised from $1.50 to $5? I know the inflation is bad but I did not expect wood pricing to jump >300%  ;D.

Not that I am complaining but I believe this truly ruined it for me as a hobbyists and encourage people to get woods from neighbors, friends and family members....which spreads the HLB even more.

These can be underripe/off season tangelo as the peel looks thin. My tangelo harvested in August looks similar (the one on the right in the picture). The green one is a Dekopon, which usually have thicker and rougher skin than tangelo.

It can be flat or have bump in my experience. My picture showing 2 fruits from the exact same branch from CCPP, grafted onto Mineola tree. The fruit on the right was off-season (picked in August), hence the green color skin.

My Xie Shan are turning yellow. Had one more than a week ago and it was not ripen enough. Will wait till late Nov. Picture of my fruit with a cracked dekopon after some rain

69 varieties ....wow....I didn't know there are that many loquat varieties out there.

Yes...My tree was 20 ft tall and was cut down leaving 2ft of the main trunk so it gives me new shoots for ease of grafting. Please keep the goodies coming. I will need your scions again in near future  ;) also thx for the advices.

I am a beginner with grafting.  Is it still good time to graft loquat in SoCal?

I got very nice quality scions from this seller and grafted onto my tree few weeks ago. They survived close to 100 deg F with 80% of them took. One branch even started flowering.. And this was my first time grafting loquat.  <br /><br />

My suggestion on mandarin varieties that I like on my trees are;
- Xie Shan
- Shiranui
- Ponkan
- Kishu seedless
- Honey mandarin (VI-133)
- Murcott mandarin (get the VI-147, not VI-462)
- Tango (not available from UCR)
- Gold Nugget (not available from UCR)
- Yosemite Gold (not available from UCR)
- Shasta Gold (not available from UCR)

I have a lot of other varieties but they don't taste as good as the above.

Kaz,
     What about Kiyomi Tangor? I remember your post from some time ago. How does it stack up against these? Asking as I am planning to get scion from CCPP this coming Spring.

     I also grafted 3 ponkan scions this year. They are very tiny and grow very slow. Hopefully I get fruits in 2 years.

      BTW, your Vista loquat scions are pushing new leaves. I am thrilled 😊 :blank:

Here is mine, after I thinned down the fruit of course. It had more than 10 fruits on this tiny branch.

I have three branches grafted two years ago. They look exactly  like yours. Big cluster and I thinned them to 4 or 5 fruits per branch. I am in Hacienda Hts.

PM sent. What is the typical length of the cutting you sell?

15
I always feel hesitant to buy Tangelos from grocery store as the fruits are so much smaller than those from my tree. See pictures.

You can order from Calpoly. I did a curb side pick up and very happy with the plant size I got. They also ship for smallest size.

Brian, very juicy with perfect balance of sweet and tangy. I gotta wait till they fully ripe (usually after mid March with very dark orange color skin) so that they have more sweetness. They hang on the tree well.

I have a 20' tall tangelo tree. They are only good if I feed the tree well. Ever since I started using urea, the fruit quality improved. The tree is somewhat alternate bearing. This year is the off year and the fruits I got are exceptional. Many of them are close to a pound. I guess lower quantity boosted the quality. I also grafted Dekopon onto my tangelo tree and it grows well. First fruit this season is about 1.26 lbs. I am thankful to have both growing in the yard :)

The leaves definitely look like satsumas'. Judging from the rootstock thorn, that may be flying dragon.

I received my Ponkan wood mid last month from CCPP. A bit disappointed as those are tiny thin wood. I am a newbie in grafting so that is a big deal.
For Xie Shan, mine has been very slow in growth. Only flower after two years grafted on. Hope you guys have better luck.

If I may ask, which Thong Dee to order from CCPP as I saw two listed? I grafted the CRC 3927 last January onto my mature Tangelo tree and two of them took but almost zero growth. The Scions are still green. My Tahitian Pomelo grafted the same day have been vigorous. Should I try my luck with the Thong Dee CRC4027? The CRC 3927 is out of stock.
