Citrumelo 4475 citrus rootstocks

Citrus trifoliata x Citrus paradisi

Citrumelo 4475 is a tetraploid cold-hardy dwarfing citrus rootstock, mainly used for sweet oranges and grapefruit. It produces a grafted tree with a mature height of around 4m.

Tetraploid citrus rootstocks are thought to be more tolerant of water stress and nutrient deficiencies than the diploid citrus rootstocks.

These rootstocks are bio-certified, and raised from seed. The rootstocks are naturally thorny, but this does not affect the scion variety.

Prices are per rootstock, contact us for a discount for larger quantities. The 1-year plants are about 35cm.

Citrumelo 4475 is a hybrid between the Citrus trifoliata (the Japanese bitter orange) and Citrus paradisi (grapefruit). It was originally developed by Walter Swingle in Florida in the early 20th century, and has become one of the most widely-planted grapefruit / orange hybrid rootstocks.
