Default Rootstock citrus

Will the seeds from rootstock fruit produce the same plant?
So about twelve years ago I planted a satsuma I bought online, after about a year the plant was destroyed to the ground. The plant grew back from the ground and became a thorny terrible looking whip like bush.
I never cut it back or did anything with it. Over the years this plant had grown to about 12-14 tall and has survived everything thrown at it. One year we had a deep freeze w temps as low as 8 degrees that lasted over a week.
Last November I looked up and it had two green fruits, in December I picked two yellow lemons that taste and look exactly like a store bought. The plant now has multiply blooms so maybe I will get some more fruit.
So back to the question if I try and grow the seeds will the plants produced have the same cold hardiness and fruit?
Thanks

Yes.
The rootstock is a different plant from the grafted bud or scion.
So if the scion and buds are dead and all that is left is the rootstock....then the plant is back to its original variety and will continue to grow with all the same characteristics.

The cool part now is determining what the rootstock is.

I'm fairly sure its trifoliate orange rootstock. I believe that is what cold hardy citrus is grafted to here in NC.

Ok cool. Hopefully I can get some more fruit, but if it takes 12 years to flower not worth it.

You could try grafting any citrus varieties you want onto this tree. It would take 3 years to fruit but at least you know what you have. Plenty of videos on youtube. I just don’t think you will be pleased with the fruit that you get from you this tree in its current condition. That’s just my opinion for what it’s worth.

Guys I’m back to report on the citrus tree that won’t die. Survived another deep freeze winter and is holding fruit good. It had a big bloom in March and now I have maybe 30 or so fruits hanging on. This thing is tough. I need to make more. Last time I grew some from seeds from the fruit that was ripe. Those plants turned into the same thorny tree w same property’s, but I’m guessing could take another 15 years to make fruit.

I’m going to try a few clippings dipped in one of my hydro buckets see how that works.
Will try and post pics when fruit is done.
