Hey guys, I have been doing a lot of research about growing fruit trees and I decided to do two things, since most of the time when you plant from seed it is a roll of the dice as to whether or not you get a good fruit producing variety or not, I was thinking of growing a couple of each type of fruit tree and pick some grafted nursery varieties and also plant some from seeds..
However, I have bumped into a lot of research about certain fruits that hardly ever bear fruit if they are planted from seed (Like Avocado) for example and a lot of fruits that are bitter 99% of the time if planted from seed (IE citrus like oranges, etc).
I was wondering if this is true, and I collected many citrus seeds from local citrus trees and was wondering if it was even viable to try to grow them? I mean, I could also buy one nursery variety and graft them, but that would be a lot of trouble.
My wife planted an orange tree once from seed and the fruit is very delicious... so who knows?
Also lastly, there are a bunch of local citrus trees that have these tiny oranges on them, I wish I had a picture but they look exactly like an orange but about 1 inch (or less?) in diameter.
They are very interesting and funny, I split some open and the seeds are the same size as any orange, and so the inside of the fruit is almost composed of half fruit half seeds just from how large they are..
so funny XD
Well, I would appreciate you all's thoughts.. thanks!
