Citrus General Discussion / Re: What kind of citrus is this?

Thanks Laaz It was nighttime so i didn't really look at the leaves just reached through the fence and grabbed some. Maybe I'll grow some root stock from it

Citrus General Discussion / What kind of citrus is this?
« on: October 30, 2018, 03:05:39 PM »
I found this orange tree while putting gas in my truck it was growing against a chain link fence next to a vacant lot so I walked over and picked off a few of the fruit I will get pictures of the tree next time I put gas in, this tree was not intentionally planted it it's In a corporate complex next to a vacant lot here are some pictures of the fruit. I dont believe the leaves were trifoliate I'll check next time. I'm assuming just a malnourished feral Valencia or something.

very interesting millet thank you for sharing the info

i grafted my shiranui tree about 3 weeks ago i decided to use C35, i found a decent sized donor tree it was a nice trovita orange on C35, i grafted 3 buds onto the c35 below the trovita. i havent decided if i will allow the trovita orange to stay the top or chop it to force the shiranui to push.

ive had nill success with other rootstocks ive had better success with c35, than carizzo.

Got my shiranui bud wood this morning so went to a few home improvement stores and a nursery looking for some good rootstock and man were the Pickings slim tons of Meyers and Mexican likes but looked like their own roots I ended up buying a 5' trovita orange on C-35 rootstock the grafting went good the bark was slipping so I decided to T bud graft the c35 with 3 buds I was hoping to get a much smaller tree but it had the nicest straightest trunk so I got it.

Shiranui is now being dispersed to hobbyists through the CCPP though they have put a restriction of 1 budstick per order regardless of whether you ordered 6 or 12 scions, my budwood cut date is tomorrow, and i will receive my budwood on wednesday morning as long as no delays happen.

Here is a recent pic of my dekopon seedling living in sunny southern california its gotten plenty of sun its whole life, it needs to be repotted but i dont want to interrupt its last flush of the season. i will wait and repot it next month i believe. i cant add anything to the flowering or fruit setting info just that this tree is doing pretty well on its own roots and growing steady.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: It's Dekopon??? Help please!
« on: July 27, 2016, 01:08:21 AM »
the fruit does appear to have the characteristics of the dekopon/shiranui being that it has bumpy peel, a knot at the top but its too early to know 100% and the picture of the leaves close up doesnt really help. is this something that is being offered to sell to you? its my opinion that this could POSSIBLY be dekopon/shiranui but no one can say for sure

current status, had to move the tree to the back patio due to heat and light the leaves were burning and drying, it was flushing new growth and the new growth would be brown/black by the time i got home from work iwas about 100+ and sun for 8+ hours directly so i moved to my shaded patio which gets sun in the AM only i try and move it back to direct sun around 3pm so it gets sunset sun for about3 hours also.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: can you root budwood?
« on: July 04, 2016, 05:35:54 PM »
at the time i used clone-X gel but the rooting did not work, but i think i went about it wrong, i should have kept them in a dark place for a bit, cause i think a lot of energy was spent on sending out new shoots rather than roots, but idk.

Really neat unique tree, great to have in a collection! i love interesting trees such as this, thats part of why i love growing from seed i always like the possibility of the unknown or a chance at something i see this is a GRAFT chimera and that it only occurs through the grafting process, with so much grafting being done now a days have we seen anymore of these chimeras?? or was it due to a specific type of grafting we used to do and have since refined??

it seems this was a hybrid of a satsuma and a ponkan, grown in only one area and you are not likely to find a source for the tree. at first i was thinking Ugli tangelo which you can get budwood from the CCPP but i dont think these are the same variety from what i could research. doesnt seem like the temecula sweet tangerine is something you can find a tree of but maybe grow it from seed when you get the fruit, but an old article i found stated the orchard where these temecula sweet tangerines are grown was infected with tristeza so maybe growing from seed is not the best idea. a tough position to be in if you want the tree. i want the Ugli tangelo but cant source a tree in socal but i have ordered the budwood from CCPP but was unable to graft it onto anything all grafts did not take but i have continued my hunt for this tree in socal.

1 month later its flushing good, although the sun is bright and burns some of the new leaves at the very tip but its still doing good and growing steady now.

I've already placed an order for the shiranui through the CCPP but it keeps getting pushed back due to low supply but eventually i will get some, i believe even though this is the 3rd and last embryo to emerge from a single seed that it is most likely a clone, as it has little thorns and such low vigor from what i have read and researched of dekopons they are not the most vigorous trees on their own roots and the leaf shape and structure leads me to believe it is a nucellar seedling but on the off slim chance it is a zygotic seedling it still has a high probability of being a sumoXsumo cross rather than a  sumoX??? cross so either way im probably going to get a good dekopon tree out of this and in the lesser chance of it being a mystery cross the world needs diversification so i will see it through it really is growing quite nice now and will be a small compact DENSE little tree every node on the tree is pushing out a new bud so i will have plenty of branches.

Just updating some pictures of the progress it is flushing pretty good this past month and this week it appears it will send out another 4-5 branches this will be a dense little tree when it fills in. Changing my watering habits and fertilizing habits has brought more growth in the past 3 months than in the first 9.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: rooted Meyer lemon cuttings - now what?
« on: February 07, 2016, 05:40:28 AM »
I use a pH probe from milwaukee that i calibrate from packeted ph solution,i calibrate it for the 4.0 solution then calibrate it to the 7.0 solution then the 4.0 again and split the difference this gives me about the right calibration that i want to check "acidic" i grow aquatic plants as a hobby and use that probe to check the pH of my aquarium water and so i have it on hand to check the ph of my feeding water for my citrus trees, when i check the ph using the probe vs the strips they are different the strips do indeed give a false reading when it comes to TDS but you can get your pH into about the right range simply by calling your local water authority and finding out what the ph of your tap water is then using the strips to check it and adjust your calculations accordingly. most my tap water i have tested is at 7.8-8.0 which my citrus do not like, distilled water is at about 7.0 but when i add in my nutrients it brings it down to about 6.7 when i test it with my probe calibrated between the 4.0 nd 7.0 solution.

8 is still high for a citrus tree they like slightly acidic to acidic water, i shoot for watering with pH of like 6.7 water if i were you i would go buy 1 gallon of distilled water and cut my city water with it 50/50 and use that to water my plants, it may help significantly. When i was trying to grow my sumo seed for 3 months it slowly just sat there and didnt grow and i tried to figure it out once i switched to watering with distilled water that i added nutrient to it began growing again i have found citrus to be very picky when it comes to watering especially if the tree is young or in a sensitive state. now some valencia seeds i have grown dont care what you water em with they grow consistently irregardless of the water i think it depends on the variety.
