Title:
Cultivar and Rootstock Research for the Arizona Citrus Industry
Author:

Journal:
Citrus Research Report
Abstract:
A lemon rootstock trial and a lemon scion trial were established in 1993. After two years growth, C. volkameriana and C. macrophylla rootstocks have begun to show significant growth and yield increases, compared with 'Swingle' citrumelo and 'Carrizo' citrange. These two rootstocks also have led to larger fruit size, especially early in the season. Trees on Rough lemon rootstock had equivalent growth, but less yield. 'Limoneira 8A Lisbon' scion cultivar had the greatest yield and largest early season fruit size, compared to 'Frost Nucellar', 'Corona Foothills' and `Prior Lisbon' lemons.
