Grafting one type of citrus onto another

Christiansted, VI(Zone 11)

I have an old tall narrow orange tree that has delicious, tiny fruits that have fifty seeds in each fruit.

Can I do chopping magic and graft onto the stump ?? tangerine, pomelo, persian lime??

Sure, if you have the touch! It might be easier to allow a few sprouts to come out of the trunk and t-bud into them after 1 year. That is, if you were implying that you were cutting it down?

Ah, yes. The tiny orange are so high up that I can't begin to reach them and there are two other trees just alike. I plan to cut the tree about three feet from the ground.

OK, let it make sprouts, that sounds great! I did cut one limb about two inches thick, and it has wonderful sprouts growing like mad! I've heard early summer is the time to do grafting here.

Poor tree is in a bad place, a foot from my deck and blocking the view and dropping all sorts of mess onto the deck.

Thanks for your answer!
