Glenn Wright (U. Arizona) is collaborating with Mikeal Roose and Tracy Kahn (UC Riverside) to evaluate a rootstock trial for Limoneira 8A Lisbon lemon at the Lindcove Research and Extension Center. This trial is one of three lemon trials located in the San Joaquin Valley, Ventura County area, and the Coachella Valley. Trees of Limoneira 8A Lisbon lemon, a popular selection in California, are being grown on 11 rootstocks. Glenn is utilizing the LREC fruit grading system to evaluate the size, color, grade, weight and number of fruit per tree. This trial will be highlighted at the Fruit Display event on Dec 14.
