The UF-CREC Citrus Improvement Team has developed a broad citrus germplasm base, providing opportunities to generate diverse and interesting and possibly lucrative selections with niche-market and dooryard potential.  Several such selections are showing reasonable levels of HLB (Huanglongbing or citrus greening disease) tolerance, which is a very important attribute for trees to be grown by home gardeners.  Combining these selections with new rootstocks exhibiting greater HLB tolerance, and growing trees with emerging enhanced nutrition programs, provides small growers and dooryard citrus enthusiasts a real chance to get back into the enjoyable fresh citrus production.
