Re: Citrus

Jim, have any of these fruited for you???  Have they come  true??   Or have 
they reverted back??  Just curious.  I'd  always heard that the only sure fire 
way to get the original citrus is to  take a scion wood and graft it to a good 
hardy rootstock.  I learned all  this, but need a serious refresher.  Lemons 
seem to grow well from seed  though, from what I hear.  
YOu mentioned variegated lemons.....were those by chance, the spanish  
variegated pink lemons??  Any idea why they might not have worked???   I promised 
Pam some seed, giving her some clues might help her success  rate.

That's  all I've ever done, Chris, but I don't have much experience at 
it--three  Palestine limes, three blood oranges, two variegated lemons 
[variegated  lemons didn't make it]. I started them in peat pots in the 
lathhouse  during warm weather.
