Article linked in this thread said Meiwa did very well with Benton Citrange rootstock.
I canít find any BC so far.

Vnomonee, UCR's 488 page Citrus Production Manual no where mentions citrumelo as a viable rootstock. Personally, I have never used citrumelo.  There must be a reason why UCR does not even list it as a usable rootstock.

Right, Meiwa on citrumelo is not compatible over the long term (dead after 5 years according to a rootstock trial I read) 

So it had a poncirus interstock citrumelo -> poncirus -> meiwa

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

Millet,

off topic, would you recommend getting a hard copy of the citrus production manual?  I already have citrus industry volume II and biology of citrus.  I have read them both and have read biology of citrus over and over again.

Anyone read anything with compatibilty of Meiwa with macrophylla rootstock? I have many different citrus varieties on my large macrophylla tree and so far I don't see any issues with the kumquat, orange, lemons, pomelo, citron, mandarins.

Millet,

  Certainly I would love to try this rootstock if you are having success with it.  Odd that we are all finding meiwa to be so finicky.  I am thinking I will try ordering another meiwa this year once I have some new rootstock ready and immediately cut some budwood from it and try grafting.  I have never ordered budwood specifically I am a bit more comfortable with the idea of having a donor tree on hand... even if it might be a short lived one.
What rootstock was yours on and what is millet having success with?
