The Femminello Apireno is also seedless.

Laaz, if you are serious about the trellises in that picture, I got what you need. I grow a bamboo orchard and can supply you with any size up to 20 tall.

Pomona lemon graft on a key lime.  Hardy to 16F.  No acid.  Sweet.

I hear ya, only one branch.  At least the zest is great for baking. Was free wood from the Texas Aggie certified disease center.

I've got about 6 varieties of oranges and all kinds of limes and stuff grafted to mainly a key lime tree.  In spite of the low of 22F due to running out of fuel with about 8 hours to go the fruit and new growth are/were over the top.   Blood oranges are excellent.



Cara cara is one of our faves.



I really hit the trees hard with about a pound of 15-9-12 osmocote each tree.  Foliage never looked so healthy.
