Meyer lemon x Tahition Lime (Grafted)

Bspargo's Edible Fruits
Update: 636 days 8hrs

Comments: -

Meyer lemon and tahition lime grafted on one tree. Always kept in a pot (around 65L, should upgrade soon to 100L though i did a root prune a few years back). Lime side seems to have taken over in terms of growth. Hard to keep this tree balanced now.

Dwarf Apple - Akane

Bspargo's Edible Fruits
Update: 636 days 8hrs

Comments: - This variety i think is too high chill for my area. You can see the buds didn't really open vrey well this year and there was no additional height from last year. Cill issues seem to effect the top of the plant more. I'm grafting on lwer chill varieties and will try misting and shading during winter to get more chill.
