Results showed that rootstock had significant effect on growth and development as well as Fruit quality of Valencia late. Highest Plant height (4.42m), Plant mean spread (4.17m) and Plant volume (40.31m3) on Rough lemon rootstock. Rootstock types had significant effect on highest Number of fruits per plant (232.76), number of kg per plant (32.75) as well as Fruit quality like highest juice percentage (53.15), TSS (12.56 brix), Acidity (1.01%) and Ascorbic acid (57.86 mg/100 ml juice) were budded on rough lemon rootstock.
