I have come across a wonderful tasting orange and would like to have a
go at taking a cutting of this. Does anyone know if this is possible
or recommended, if so maybe some links to "best practices" when it
come to cloning citrus.
In this country, which is very big on citrus plantations, ALL citrus trees
are grafted onto strong rootstocks. Find out what is the usual rootstock for
your area, and go that way. Don't bother with any other approach.
I think citrus is usually grafted onto trifoliate orange, which can be
grown from seeds. Trifoliate orange is very hardy (and I think it's
nematode resistant), so if an especially hard freeze kills the top, you
still have the roots and can regraft it to grow a new fruit tree quickly.
