growing citrus from cuttings? - feasable or not

Postby gardenlen » Mon Aug 03, 2015 4:27 am

guess they will grow from cuttings but what is end result a true to form fruiting plant or other?

all help will be appreciated
With peace and brightest of blessings,

While growing from cuttings is possible, it may not be a good idea. Most citrus on sale have been grafted for better performance - e.g. better root system, resistance to disease.
It is very disheartening to see a fully laden citrus tree suddenly die from fungal attack as I know from experience.
Gardening is sharing.
