orange pips

Question

I have germinated 4 orange (clementine) pips. One of them has 2 sprouts; my friend tells me that one of the sprouts will be same as parent tree. Can you tell me how to identify the correct sprout, please? Kind regards, Ken


Answer

If the sprouts came from the same seed they will both have identical DNA. Your friend may be referring to sprouts coming off a grafted rootstock which will have different attributes from the fruit stalk.
