Cold Hardy Citrus / Juanita Tangerine
« on: June 27, 2019, 05:51:41 AM »
I recently acquired a Juanita Tangerine and was curious to know a little more about the tree/fruit if anyone has one. Iíve heard the famous story of Ms. Juanita and was curious about the flavor of the fruit.

Found a broken branch on my Tarocco from the storm last night. Will probably yield two good budsticks if anyone in Georgia (US) is interested.

Citrus General Discussion / Boron Toxicity or Magnesium Deficiency?
« on: June 13, 2019, 05:50:59 AM »
Apologies for the noob question, but do the below leaves reflect boron toxicity or a magnesium deficiency? My trees are fertilized with Osmocote Plus, while alternating FoliagePro and Fish Emulsion. Towards the end of last summer, I stopped using FoliagePro and was only using FE. Now, Iím afraid Iíve experienced a nutrient lock out. Weíve had about 5 straight days of excessive rain, so theyíve gotten a good flush.

Note: my young grafted trees are still indoors, using the same water source (but were not fed FE) are all dark green.

2nd Note: the third picture shows new growth on a tree that almost exclusively produces dark red shoots that purple out before turning green. This new growth has been entirely green from the start.

Thanks for your time and any/all advice is greatly appreciated 🙂

Citrus General Discussion / Rooting Cuttings Without Leaves?
« on: June 03, 2019, 07:04:59 AM »
Question: can you root cuttings or budsticks without leaves? Iím looking at purchasing a clonerr such as this one for insurance on failed grafts. Thanks guys and have a great week!

Citrus General Discussion / Old Grafting Scars: What should I do?
« on: May 23, 2019, 06:59:36 AM »
Hey guys, me again with another question: I have a small tree that I grafted last fall, with a scar from a previously failed graft. I have been watching the scar, hoping it would heal up, but it hasnít changed, other than hardening. Yesterday, I noticed gummy sap accumulating at the top of the scar. Now that I know what Iím doing (mostly lol), I will be grafting this species to another rootstock (without scars lol) once it gets big enough. Is there anything I should do to protect the wound and encourage healing? Iíve thought about re-wrapping the area. Thanks for your time!

« on: May 14, 2019, 09:06:18 PM »
My fingers are sore, but my heart is happy...finished grafting for the season! Well, until Thursday, anyway 😂🍋

I will be pruning my Santa Teresa Femminello Lemon soon if anyone in Georgia would like some budwood.

Citrus General Discussion / Grafting Question: Advice Needed
« on: April 05, 2019, 10:29:46 PM »
Question: any recommendations on getting a graft to wake up? My Carrubaro lemon is still green and the graft has fused (grafted at the end of December/beginning of January) but showing no signs of swelling. My two other amalfi grafts should be leafing out any day now.

Note: the Carrubaro is inside a plastic container that is sitting on a heat mat.

Thanks for your time! :)


Citrus General Discussion / Femminello Lemon Grafts
« on: February 18, 2019, 07:14:04 PM »
Today marks 50 days since I grafted 6 trees: 3 Carrubaro lemon and 3 Sfusato Amalfitano lemon scions. I still have 3 amalfi and 1 Carrubaro that are still green. One of the Amalfitano grafts should be pushing a new leaf out any day now. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Citrus General Discussion / New Grafts from CCPP Budwood
« on: October 27, 2018, 06:31:18 PM »
Hi everyone! I received budwood of 4 lemon varieties from the CCPP a few weeks ago: NZL, Interdonato, Villafranca, and Femminello Siracusano 2KR. At 3 weeks, all of the grafts are still green. What are your favorite types of lemons? I have Santa Teresa, Genoa, Zagara Bianca, Lunario, Bearss, and a Pink Variegated Eureka. None of them have fruited yet, so I canít choose a favorite. Iím going to have lemons coming out of my ears when they do :).


Hi Everyone, Iím looking for budwood of any of the femminello ir Italian lemon varieties in GA (since Iím in a quarantine state). Iím willing to pay. I currently have the Santa Teresa, Genoa, and Zagara Bianca. Thanks for your time!
