Multi fruit for citrus tree

Postby April » Tue Sep 16, 2003 5:19 pm

Hi I have a small garden and I would love to have a citus tree that produces more than one fruit. Say a lemon that fruits most of the year and probably an orange and tangello.
Does anyone out there know where I can get one :?: I'm even willing to try grafting :!:

The November edition of the Gardening Australia magazine has a step by step guide to making your own "fruit salad" tree - It shows how to do bud grafting - this may help you, I think! From Mandy

Had a look at the prices in the nursery for citrus trees. :o No wonder people are going for multigrafted trees. If I knew someone with citrus trees I might even buy one tree and have a go myself. Hmmm My daughter is moving here and I think there are a couple of citrus trees in the yard.Ann
