interstock
« on: March 15, 2024, 08:24:43 AM »
How much influence does the interstock have over a vigorous scion?  I have a very vigorous citron grafted onto a Macrophylla, it's about 4 years old now and is showing sign of scion overgrowth.  So I grafted an FD onto a MAcro hoping to use the FD as an interstock for said citron.  However I am now doubtful it would help because of how much the scion overgrowth has grown lately.

I don't know as I am using  a PT inter stock between Sour orange and Fukushu kumquat to join 2 incompatible root to scion varieties.

Thank you poncirsguy. Hopefully this thing works.

I don't know about a interstock influence.  However, I have many trees grafted on Flying Dragon.  One tree now 20 years old shows a large over growth of the root stock, but has shown no scion problems at all.

Thank you, Millet.  Maybe I am worrying over nothing.

I have many grafted varieties on my large macrophylla tree and I don't have any incompatibility so far. I have multiple Etrog scions grafted on the macro and they are growing fine, no issue with graft union. What type of citron do you have grafted on the macro? I

 do notice this Etrog does not like the Valentine pomelo tree that I graft it onto a few years back. First year it did well, had a nice fruit, then it went downhill from there. Now one of the Etrog graft died, the other one is still alive but dropped all its leaves and barely showing any growth, probably will dry up and die like the other one. My Valentine tree is very large so not sure why Etrog doesn't like it.

kulasa, can you take a photo of your overgrowth at the graft union, like to see how bad it is.

wow, that is a nice grafted branch. My macrophylla tree is huge so it wouldn't do that if you graft on my tree. I have a etron, 9lb lemon, meiwa, Yosemite Gold, Pink Lemonade, Yuzu, Clementine mandarin, Pink lemon (Italy), finger lime, hybrid finger lime, sumo all doing fine.

I do not have a large tree except for my oldest ponderosa. I do not really like the ponderosa. I have a standard Eureka (I think) that grows regular lemons in the outside but pink fleshed in the inside. I was thinking maybe that's the Italian pink lemon?

If it's the variegated pink lemon, then they call it the pink lemonade, been around for a while. The Italian Pink lemon is a recent release, so it has not been around since last year in the states. I have my own bud mutation pink lemon, which is larger fruits, more vigorous than these others. Still looking for a citrus grower to grow/sell it, maybe actually make some profit from this hobby.

No, it's not the variegated pink lemon. The tree is not variegated at all, the only thing pink is the pulp. I will post photos later.

Here's the Italian pink lemon, it doesn't have varieated leaves, just pink flesh.

Thank you, here are photos of my tree. I have never gotten any fruit to fully ripen, they always fall off.

Very nice looking lemon, looks like its seedless. I wonder why it doesn't ripen up (turn yellow skin) even though the fruits are getting large.

Here's my special lemon:

These are my sport mutation on my lemon tree, all from the same tree. I had this tree for over 30 years, since does the same. Type 4 is the winner.
