I have grown from seed for 10 years and observed compared to planted out grafted finger limes. Seedlings are slower, thornier and have yet to flower. Grafted one’s do great.

It is not that I'm against grafted.I just need enough trunk above the graft ,to harvest bark for bark graft experiments.

I see. It could be harder to find larger caliper grafted tree’s in FL still.

Finger lime grows slow, I don't think you will find that many people with 1" or larger diameter finger lime.
What kind of experiment are you trying to conduct?

It seems difficult to find that size,so half inch and up!I should be doable,the grafted ones on volkmer lime and sour orange,US-802 seem good size fast.

HLB

I have a plant that was grafted but it's not volkmer or US-802 rootstock. The rootstock is about 3/4" diameter but the grafted finger lime is barely 1/2" diameter and I had it for a year. My tree looks like it's on sour orange rootstock.

Yes, I read that it is resistant to HLB.

Picked up a tree from here:

https://justfruitsandexotics.com/product/australian-green-finger-lime-tree/

It's been a year or 2 in my possession, 9 months in ground. Unsure, but think was 3 gal when arrived.

That's a nice looking tree. Where is the graft union ? Is it higher up on the rootstock?

That is a very nice tree!That is a bit of a drive to that nursery.They do say on the web page it is not grafted.

Oh, didn't know they root their cuttings, that's even better. I should try rooting a few branches from my small tree.
Thanks for this info.

Here is another pic:



Appears perhaps grafted, about halfway up (pic, plant is 5 feet or more). Seems a little fatter above that point as well.

...have heard and read Fingerlime grows well from cuttings.
