Have you tried the blood lime fruit yet?   This is the one that logees original sold as red finger lime and then discovered it was the (rare?) blood lime?

I purchased 4 of these back when logees had them for $40.. now they're $100!

I have tried a few now. They're a little more potent than a finger lime. The outer rind is a deep burgundy while the inside is almost an emerald green. The vesicles are more teardrop shaped than circular.. Very appealing. I believe they are a cross of finger and calamondin if I remember correctly? The flavor certainly resembles it!

Who is Highlanders? I need it

oops lol I meant woodlanders.

looks like they no longer have it listed, however many times if you contact them they have things "in the back"

if they don't, send me a pm.

Desert lime has high resistance to hlb and a lot of other things. I want the meyer lemon x desert lime cross. It seems to have the disease resistance of the desert lime for the most part but good tasting lemon like fruit and grows true to seed. It is used as root stock.

Where is this found?

I got one from highlanders. Not sure if he has any left though.

Has CCPP got these? If so, I'm about to place my order. Since I assumed it wasn't in the United States, I didn't even ask them. I tried to place an order, but after tracking (and, I assume, permissions), it costs roughly $50 USD to send out 20 seeds Who knows if they will survive? At that price, I don't think I could risk it.

Seeds or cuttings from who?

The desert lime appears to be unaccessioned in the CCPP which case youd have to request theyll have to reintroduce it again to buy cutttings and that takes literal years lmao.

also there is a link inserted in a period in your post about golf lazers  :P

I heard rumors that our main man Hershell at Madison Citrus is working on desertlime reintroduction and likely will have the variety in the coming year available. I know he’s working on a wicked amount of interesting trees right now.

If you’re looking for prociemquat, I know woodlanders has a few left. Had to email them directly to request it and they were happy to send me some. I plan to use both prociemquat and Kinzu in future breeding projects. I believe and was once told that they must be used as male parent as they’re around 99% nucellar as a female.

I actually have a few really nice rooted cuttings available. Otherwise, try calling Briteleaf. Odds are they have some as well “in the back”

Do you feel these would be best for grafting or do you think they'd root decently on their own?

They’re not that fresh anymore, been in the fridge since post origin. I’d say grafting is the safest bet. Kumquats are harder to root in my opinion.

I had thrips forever on my citrus, spinosad was the only thing that ever worked for me after trying all types of oils and other things. Spinosad worked amazing.

Some info on it.

I don’t know of anywhere you can purchase these in the states. “It originates from southern Italy, Sicily, derived from a mutation of a classic “Femminello Lemon”.”

Asking $15/good scion with 6+ great buds plus shipping. 3 sticks available.

Will trade for other interesting varieties as well.

Lots of cuttings now available. Same prices as above. Message me for details! Rooted cuttings are all sold out, but will have a good amount available for spring.

Yes, I;m interested again.  Walt.

Sounds good Walt, got you on the list for some. I’m also doing some rooted cuttings and grafting of these onto FD.

Almost that time of year again. Let me know if anyone is interested in some. Same pricing as last year.

Glad to see you got some success! I almost have a good number of rooted cuttings available here soon.

I have 1 decently sized grafted rare Rosso Blood on US942 stock. About 7 month old graft. Very vigorous! Asking to trade for something interesting!

I too have been searching for years without luck, but soon I’m sure something may turn up lol

My variegated lemon did the EXACT same thing. However, it was a clipping and not a graft. I'm not sure if the variegation causes more weakness and susceptibility to crown rot, etc. I tried treatments using organicide plant doctor and phyton 35 a couple of weeks apart. Anyway, it lost all its leaves and died and I decided to go with a much taller grafted version which has had no problems. Good luck to you!

Mine is a rooted cutting as well, however I've used "Garden Phos" an few times now and it seems that the gummosis has slowed, it also is still pushing out new growth so I assume I might be in the clear and caught it early enough.

I think most citrus are rather susceptible to root rot, trifoliate are highly resistant. So most grafted trees are unaffected for the most part.

Has anyone tried growing seeds of Citrus macrophylla ?

I have a lemon rootstock, Citrus macrophylla, that I let grow and now its a pretty tall tree (7-8 ft) and has some large fruits on it. Fruit is still green, size of a large lemon, so I will wait until the fruit turns yellow before I pick them and get the seeds.

I'm planning to grow the seeds and use the seedlings to graft some lemon varieties I have since the seedling rootstock should have stronger roots (tap roots).

Also, has anyone rooted cuttings of the Citrus macrophylla? It may be quicker to grow them from cuttings but I'm not sure how good the root structure will be for use as a rootstock plant.

Mac root crazy easy. I actually have a 1.5 year old leaf-rooted tree (yes rooted from 1 leaf) that’s about 18” tall now. Leaves root amazingly well, and cuttings even easier. I feel they’re one of the easiest citrus to root.

Personally I love using Mac as rootstock. Pretty vigorous, minimal incompatibilities,  and for my purpose, can be used well in containers. If you plan on selling any of those seeds, let me know!

There is one fungicide which is said to specifically control phytophthera. This is Fosetyl-Aluminium sold as Aliette. See for instance
As others have said, the best way to guard against the problem is to avoid saturated medium. Make sure water can drain freely through and out of the pot in abround 30 seconds. I also re-plant with the stem raised a little above the surface of the pot mix, even with the highest roots showing.

I went with another recommendation, the exact stuff Vnomonee said. It’s also said to control phytophthera as well! I’m hoping it does some magic.

In other regards, I use a 2:1:1 mix of coco chips, coir, perlite. It doesn’t hold water in the slightest, no longer than a day or two at most even on less warm days. It drains very freely, much less than 30s lol. Probably like 5s tops before it comes spilling out. I have very few trees infected, but most certainly all rooted cuttings.
