My C35 rootstock died under my NZL from cold

nice video.

Meiwa is the best by far.  It can be picked while still half ripe an have a sweet peel with a somewhat sour flesh.  You can leave it on the tree until orange for a sweet interior.  The Nagami, Fukushu, Nippon, and Indio need to stay on the plant till fully ripe to have a goo tasting peel.

I have found that the Meiwa kumquat taste very  good on own  rooted seedling trees.  They are also quite tasty on Flying dragon rootstock

Root stock choice will make a big difference within same varieties.

After dozens of tries I have been unable to do any graft of Meiwa kumquat.  If my record keeping is correct I have finally got a Meiwa/ FD graft to take.  I have a couple of FD seedlings I plan to plant next to my in ground Meiwa trees to do rootstock transplants with them.  I have 2 of my 4 seed grown in ground Meiwa trees die quickly.

The bigger tree is a Fukushu kumquat.  Only the small one is a grafted Meiwa on FD.  I have 2 other seed grown Meiwa trees.  I got a quart of fruit from my 1 seedling Meiwa.

I skinned the bark off the 2 trees touching surface and wrapped them together.  It took 1.5 years for the graft to seal.  I then cut the bark of the Kuharske below the graft and waited a 1/2 year before removing the trunk of the Kuharske.  It was the easiest graft to make.

I replaced my Incompatible Kuharske Citrange rootstock on my dyeing Meiwa kumquat with a flying dragon roots.  I used an approach graft.

Thanks;

It is now outside for the summer.

I also have a Meiwa on Flying dragon after its rootstock transplant to replace its incompatible Kuharske citrange.



I have found FD to be very dwarfing for my Meiwa.

Close.  I don't feed it in fall to slow the tree down for the winter.

I use 1.5 Tsp per gallon 2 times a week in summer.  In fall I use 0. In winter I use 1 Tsp 2 time monthly and in spring 1 Tbsp. weekly.  25-5-15 jacks.

It is a PT.  I am growing the 2 PT trees to do an approach graft to my 2, 8 year old, seedling Meiwa kumquat trees.  I photographed the correct seedling but I was thinking Meiwa kumquats when I wrote this post.  That seedling PT is growing about 4 times faster than my seedling Meiwa seedlings grew.

This were the Meiwa seedlings that was meant to be in the original picture.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Meyer lemon on carrizo good or bad?
« on: April 05, 2024, 09:00:55 AM »
It is unlikely that Carrizo will grow. unless you have a large raise bed.  Seville sour orange rootstock does well with higher PH soils

If your soil is PH 7 you should do fine.  You can also plant it in a raised bed.

This seedling Meiwa tree is 4 times older than this new fig growth. Why am I bothering with Meiwa kumquats.

update on my Fukushu on flying dragon

The variegated parts of the leaves do not produce food for the plant.  The reduces the amount of food for the same amount of living tissue.

Your trees look nice.  I have a seed grown Meiwa that finaly fruited.
  I got about 1 quart of fruit from it.  I hope you'll be picking in quantity soon.

Marumi kumquat makes excellent dwarfing rootstock that Meiwa should graft well to.

My Meiwa grafted to kuharski nearly died till I did a rootstock swap to flying dragon.

Put it in the ground.  Potted meiwa trees are very finicky.  If you move get a new tree.
