ID this Citrus Rootstock
« on: July 08, 2021, 12:48:11 AM »
Can anyone help me identify what rootstock this is on my lemon tree?

I have a few lemon trees with this rootstock and would like to know what it is.

Citrus Macrophylla for sure.

Thanks Laaz, now I won't need to wait for my budwood VI-876, ALEMOW (CITRUS MACROPHYLLA), to grow and compare with it. I just received my budwood yesterday and was planning to graft it so I can compare the leaves and eventually the fruits. Saved me 3-5yrs of waiting for the graft to grow out.

Is it easy to root this from cuttings ? My rootstock is about 30 yrs old. I like your variegated version, looks nice.
