This is why I grow from seed. I have friends that can graft for me, I get tired of receiving defective trees. The big box stores get trees grafted to the easiest rootstock to graft to regardless where it is going to be planted. When you grow from seed you can end up with a tree that can look like this in 9 months.

sweetlee from Seed roots are now cover with soil after settling.

I have found an m11 rootstock sucker with root bumps, I have 2 m7 rootstock suckers with root nodules. and a lot of seedling red haven peach rootstock to graft graft. I also grew from seed 3 poncirus trifoliate rootstock for citrus grafting. its free. Its fun. It empowers one to care for their own life needs.

PS peaches taste better than citrus and are easy to grow in your zone.

Thanks for the warning

I would not be happy either. At that price I would have expected more also. Good news it it looks like it will survive.

You have at least learned one thing, don't order from them again :)

Take a look at Logees.com they offer a nice unique selection at good prices. Trees tend to be on the small side but they will grow quick given the right environment. I've ordered from them many times.

I have to say that I have not had any issues with GrowOrganic.com. All their plants have come to me in good health. I would make sure you have well draining potting soil, and use 1/2 strength liquid fertilizer with the proper NPK ratio to see if you can get your little tree to perk up. Transplant shock isn't unusual, and it does look like it's going to make it.

I also buy from Logee's. I live only 40 minutes from their greenhouses and while the trees are small, they easily double in size in one summer. I have a Key Lime, Meyer Lemon, Kaffir Lime, Finger Lime, Yuzu, and a blood orange from them that are all healthy and grew quickly.

In the future, take pictures of unhealthy plants when you get them, and send those pics to the vendor.

I did the day I got it they said it was shock and still say its healthy. It might make it its hanging on.

You sent them pictures of the mushed roots that you described in previous posts?
I don't see how they could call rotten roots "transplant shock." That doesn't make sense.

I dunno. I've had good luck with their cherries at least.

Our Minnie Royal and Royal Lee trees have settled in nicely. I was a little concerned since the trees had already broken hibernation probably due to their low chill requirement but I needn't have been I guess. The trees were nicely pruned and had good calipers too. Admittedly one took longer to acclimate but it may have been due more to my planting technique than anything else.

Tcamp, I missed your comment from October. Here's your answer: NO, I don't know anything about the company. Maybe you didn't get a response because of the way you presented your complaint.
