Pomeroy citrus rootstocks

Citrus trifoliata

Pomeroy is a dwarfing disease-resistant diploid citrus rootstock, compatible with most citrus species, but particularly suitable for sweet orange cultivars.

Pomeroy is a "large-flowered" form of Citrus trifoliata and citrus trees grafted on Pomeroy rootstock typically reach about 3m - 3.5m mature height.

Fruit size is generally improved over the more dwarfing Flying Dragon rootstock.

Pomeroy  rootstock is very cold-hardy, down to -20C, and also imparts some additional cold-hardiness to the scion variety.

It is tolerant of damp soils over winter.

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.
