Madison Citrus Nursery.
« on: July 16, 2021, 01:14:04 PM »
I just received my order of a red Grapefruit tree from Madison Citrus Nursery.  I have been in citrus for 40 years, and have purchased trees from just about most of the nurseries.  The Grapefruit tree from Madison Citrus Nursery was by far the very best tree I have ever purchased.  There are many fine nurseries that offer quality trees, all I am saying the grapefruit tree I received from Madison is the best one of all the trees I have purchased over the years.  I also seen two trees that Laaz received from them and they were just as good.

Very interesting.  I see they have Etrog and finger limes in stock.  And many other things I haven't seen elsewhere.

Thanks for posting this.  The owner is a former (or current?) forum member, right?  I remember checking stock when it first opened, but since then he has far, far more varieties, including many I had never even heard of before.  Very nice.

Thank you, I was unaware of this source.
A lot of fun stuff (not all of it in stock)! So many quats! Really unusual to see all the limequats offered.

Can Kerji and Shiranui pass the NC winter? or what will be the effective protection for winter?

I got a shiranui from Madison this year and I plan to protect it like my other mandarin/satsumas/kumquat/grapefruit: 4 mil plastic over a wooden frame, roll up one side to vent when not freezing, small space heater regulated by a thermo cube, water barrels.

Citradia I like your microclimate setup, it looks effective. 

Shiranui has been a really good citrus for me.  Consistently productive, and tasty.

Citradia,

It looks very efficient design.   I guess it will need expand with time.

Poncirsguy, we won't have Fukushu available for a while since it is slower growing.  We will revisit pricing when we have some ready to put on the site as available and will see if we can reduce the price point.   Im working with Hershell to help get everything setup on the site and try to help answer any questions I see pop up.   I know his goal is to try to make everything attainable at a very reasonable price without sacrificing the quality of the trees being sold.

Millet, thank you for the kind words, Hershell was really happy to see the message from you.

Is there a robust source of so many varieties that can be found in Texas?  I am jealous so many cool varieties can be delivered outside of my area. The growers i am aware of around here are wholesale to the nursery trade only.  The other sources for citrus this forum speaks about won't deliver in Texas. Would love to get a shiranui somehow.

They are too young to try. I will put them in the unheated greenhouse or in the basement for a couple of years.

We have been using carrizo, rubidoux, our plan is to eventually change over to mostly 942, and a few flying dragon depending on the size of the variety.  We do have just rootstock available on the site for sale as well in case anyone is interested in having more control over that and want to do their own grafting.

I was gifted with a harriss Citrus  Meiwa kumquat tree that was grafted on Kuharske Citrange.  It grew well the first year and stalled the second year.  The graft union started turning dark brown on the Meiwa scion and spread around the trunk for 3 more years.  Last year I planted a Flying dragon a half inch away and did an approach graft.  I unwrapped it now  11 months later.




My point is that the Meiwa kumquat can only fe grafted to very few rootstock.  PT, FD, K x R, Benton Citrange.  There are probably a few others.
