I would say my Meiwa kumquat is the tastiest citrus.  Cant buy them anyway so I grow them.  My New Zealand lemonade comes in second.

If there are 2 seedlings on 1 root keep them together.  If they are compete individuals separate them as soon as you can.

I did not realize that.  Marumi can survive 10F colder than ether Meiwa or Nagami.  why not that cross.

I have found the best time is early spring when I can put the tree outside in shade.  I can acclimate the tree to sunlight while the tree adjusts to the root pruning.  It is much harder to adjust in spring time than fall because the sun has risen to sun scalding levels when it is still quite cold outside.

Both rootstock started in a gallon pot then went to 5 gallon pail in which they were grafted then into a 30 gallon for the C35/Fukushu and a 13.5 gallon for the FD/Fukushu.  The C35 is in need of a transplant and root prune and the FD will go into the 30 gallon.

Yes.  Each up potting I cleared out circling roots and cut he bottom 1/2 inch mass of matted roots off.  I will be up potting this spring from my 30 gallon pot to a 54 gallon Stainless steel pot on swivel wheels  I will trim off the circling and matted roots.  This will be the final up potting for this tree.

I have rooted Poncirus Trifoliate during the hot months in a sealed container on the north side of my house.  It took about 3 months.  Never rooted Flying dragon.  I had access to FD seeds at the time i needed them.

The Fukushu was grafted to a straight twig straight thorn Flying dragon.  That FD was no more vigorous than their twisted sisters.  It was easier to T-bud to a straight shaft.

Why not cross a 0F/-18C Marumi kumquat with a 10F Harvey lemon.

I have more knowledge now.  The C35 kumquat was grafted 5 years ago and the Flyi8ngdragon/kumquat was grafted 2.5 years ago.  The C35 Fukushu grew faster than the FD/Fukushu in the beginning.  My increased knowledge and care, kept the FD/Fukushu tree to grow faster in year 2 than the C35/Fukushu.  The FD/Fukushu is overall healthier.
The C35/Fukushu is fruiting and flowering now while the FD/Fukushu is putting on growth

LED's put out about 84% heat and only 16% light.  They are lousy at producing light but we just don't have the technology to do any better.
