What citrus am I growing?
Yearly I'm re-evaluating what I'm growing and topworking to something better.
I had some severe freeze damage to small trees even though I banked with dirt
All the rootstock have sprouted though:
Sulcata sweet lemon(branch)
Pomona acidless lemon, an insipid loser
Giant key lime, I'm getting some fruit this year in a pot
Norman seedless kumquat, I've tasted the fruit from my potted plant
Tavares limequat, makes a large very sour fruit that tastes neither like lime or kumquat
I cut the top out of my mature kumquat tree and bark grafted several mandarins. You can only eat just so many kumquats!
I re-bark grafted my large swingle stump as all three limbs froze back below the graft to lee x orlando 15-150 and cocktail grapefruit hybrid.
I bark grafted a sour orange stump with lee x nova 88-2
I bark grafted three limbs of my red grapefruit to white marsh grapefruit.
I got the following from the
California Clonal Protection Program
I topworked a Valencia orange to 88-2
I've also budded high in a mature tree so I can taste the fruit next year
