Could a rootstock sprout occur above Meyer lemon graft line?
Hi, all. I would love some expert advice!
I recently brought my young Meyer lemon tree in for the winter. One branch is going nuts!! It has grown some huge, healthy, shiny leaves. The rest of the tree looks fairly placid, with smaller leaves, mostly somewhat dull, although there were two blossoms, which seems like a good sign - this would be its first year to fruit.
The branch that is going like gangbusters is growing from *above* the graft line (I'd like to upload a picture but don't remember how), so I hadn't pruned it originally. Should I? Could it possibly be coming from the rootstock? It is definitely emerging from the trunk above the graftline.
Thanks for any experienced comments!!
