I did not see a graft on the little lime tree. It may be under the soil level since I've added more soil from time to time into the pot over the last four years. It's about time to re-pot that tree since the cheap plastic pot is getting brittle from the sunlight. Time will tell if it ever produces fruit again. Those new branches are pretty thin, but with proper care, they may get better.
Meanwhile, just about all the other small citrus trees are putting out many new branches and leaves.
The mini "hoophouse" constructed with 3/4" PVC pipe and plastic sheet for protecting some of the trees this winter will have to be taller.
