Rootstock of Improved Meyer has taken over, what will I get?
A vigorous sucker saved this tree from complete extinction at the hands of scale bugs. I didn't realize until just recently that this was almost certainly coming from the rootstock. Now I am in two minds as to whether or not to leave it be and see what I get, or remove and replace. Anybody know what the rootstock typically is? It was a Home Depot purchase, Monrovia was the grower. The tree is now going into its second winter now. It's about 4 feet tall although pretty leggy, so far no fruit but until I moved it into full sun just recently, it was only getting about 4 hours of sun daily. I hate to remove it as it has shown itself to be a real survivor, but if the fruit is going to suck then it will have to go.
