Citrus Liners are an innovative product perfect for the wholesale nurseryman looking to get Citrus into their product line. The most difficult part of producing Citrus is the time involved with raising a rootstock seedling that is ready to graft and then grafting/budding the liner. With regulations due to Asian Citrus Psyllid presence in the United States, it is also more difficult to find quality, clean budwood sources.

Citrus Liners are grown in a 1.2” x 8” cone to promote healthy root growth in a pest and disease-free environment. Liners are grown in a Soil-Free Media in accordance to most phytosanitary regulations for shipping internationally.
Once received, the liner is ready to be transplanted into any desired container size. The 7-inch rootball can also be trimmed back moderately to allow the liner to fit in a shorter pot if desired.
At TreeSource we have been shipping our Citrus Liners around the world since 2004, and during that time have developed methods to ensure you receive a quality tree when the package arrives at your location. To prepare for shipment, all cones are removed. This means that you will need to plan for transplanting soon after you receive your liners. The liners are bundled in groups of 10 to increase stability and wrapped in plastic wrap so that the root balls keep their moisture throughout shipment. We can fit up to 120 liners in 1 carton! Each carton is also lined with ethylene absorbing bags so that each sealed package keeps liners happy. Due to USDA regulations, boxes must be sealed completely, so no air holes are allowed! We can ship during winter months with insulation and 2- or 3-day Air service if needed. If you are not able to transplant the liners immediately, we are able to ship in cones, but you will incur the cost of the cones and the quantity per box is reduced to 110.
