I had 11 kumquat seedlings that someone gave me. Since I had no plans for kumquat I grafted on them. Anyone ever used Kumquat for rootstock? It is kinda slow growing too. But since it does well in the ground here I assume it will be ok for rootstock. Put Brown Select Satsuma on them.
Will do so Al. My only thoughts center around the difference in growth habits of the two. Kumquat takes a bushy form in its youth. Brown select is a vigorous grower and takes a tree form for the most part. This combination may be a problem. I contemplate the Satsuma over growing the kumquat. It also may lead to a benching problem as the tree grows. Only one way to find out....grow it. I will keep updates posted.
