Citrus rootstock source
« on: October 23, 2022, 10:16:02 PM »
Does anyone know a source where I can get either a us942/897? Seeds from these would be optimal, or a rooted cutting. I've looked through various seed sellers and none of them have these two particular rootstocks.

If you get a choice the US942 has a lot more ability to handle bad growing conditions than US897.  I do not know where to get either.

I saw that 942 has a better ability to withstand heavy clay soils, and produce a bigger tree while being able to maintain smaller height than others like sour orange. 942 looks too good not to want/ hunt for propagation.

I recently purchased a lot of US942 from Madison, fantastic rootstock. Comes a in most times a little over pinky finger thickness.. and I have fat fingers.

I can't wait until I get my handa on it! As soon as they come back in stock, It'll be grafting time. The minneola i have in my greenhouse is on khuharske which does poorly in heavy clay. So I'll take buds from it, and a gold nugget with other different varieties I'll graft on and make a cocktail tree to maximize space. Even if it recovers, I'll more than likely dig it up and replace it.
