Q.Citrus Tree

Anonymous added on January 2, 2014 | Answered

I have a few citrus trees that froze when they were small. They came back from below the graft. They are about 8 feet tall now but have never bloomed. Should I just pull them up?

If they came up from below the graft, then the original tree is dead and the rootstock has taken over. Rootstock trees, while hardy, typically have inferior fruit so even if they do bloom, the fruit will be poor. I would recommend getting rid of them if you are looking for a good quality crop.
