Abstract

Malformed bud unions on young citrus trees—particularly lemons—budded upon Cleopatra mandarin and Sampson tangelo rootstocks vary in relation to the height of the budding. The reasons for the variations in bud union reaction with height of budding are not known but approximately 8? seems to be the critical height.
