All citrus varieties are self fertile so can be planted alone and fruit will be produced. Take care when planting seedless varieties (like Mandarin ‘Miho’) with other citrus trees, as despite the variety being seedless, they can form seeds if cross pollinated with another variety flowering at the same time.

Trifoliata – This rootstock is grown from seed sourced from Australia or USA. The seeds are harvested from a particular type of sour orange which produces many seeds inside the fruit. Trifoliata is the standard rootstock for citrus trees with excellent hardiness to difficult soil conditions, to cold soil temperatures, with good vigour and heavy crops.  Rootstock growth (‘suckers’) that sprouts from below the bud union (about 15cm from ground level) will look different to the variety growth with distinctive small tri-lobed leaves and many sharp spikes – this growth should be cleanly snipped off.  Trees on Trifoliata rootstock will grow to 3-4m tall.

 

Flying Dragon – A dwarfing rootstock for citrus trees, with trees on Flying Dragon growing to only 2m tall. Trees on Flying Dragon are best planted in warmer areas of the garden as the rootstock is not very cold tolerant. Another benefit of this rootstock is that the fruit is produced at an earlier age compared to trees on Trifoliata rootstock.Rootstock growth (‘suckers’) that sprouts from below the bud union (about 15cm from ground level) will look different to the variety growth with distinctive small tri-lobed leaves and many sharp spikes – this growth should be cleanly snipped off.  This rootstock is grown from seed sourced from Australia or USA. The seeds are harvested from a particular variety of sour orange which produces many seeds inside the fruit.

 

Please note not all rootstock and variety combinations are available every year.
