Q.Is This A Lemon Or A Rootstock?
Dear Master Gardeners, I did some experimental stem propagation from my improved Dwarf Meyer lemon tree and a few of them were growing. One of them which is growing the tallest is shown in attached picture but I began to wonder if this is really a lemon tree or is it the propagation of the rootstock mostly due to its slightly rounded end shapes of the leaves. The other ones have leaves with sharp pointy ends so I think this must have been the rootstock. What is your opinion on this? Is this a young lemon or a rootstock? Can you help? Thanks

It's kind of hard to tell at this young age by the leaves, but these don't seem to have the more pronounced veining like Meyer.
However, if you took the cuttings from below the graft, then they are rootstock trees.
