No Citrus Fruits On Lemon Roots





Would it be any advantage to bud the Washington Navel on grapefruit and

lemon roots?



The grapefruit or pomelo is a good root for the orange, and some

propagators prefer it. The lemon root is not used at present, because of

its effect in causing a coarse growth of tree and fruit and because it

is more subject to disease than the orange root. In fact, we grow nearly

all lemons on orange roots.
