As a rule anything below the graft is removed. Often the root stock is
chosen for its hardiness or its ability to support a dwarfing plant.
I had a pair of Mandarins die on me and before I had dug them out they had
sprouted and I now had 2 lemons, one that produces small but juicy lemons
and one that produces very thick skinned ugly looking lemons but again very
juicy. Now no amount of pruning or neglect will kill them and my wife has
enough juice to see her through the year.
