Grafting does not change the fruit. So it taste the same as whatever tree it came from

I know nothing about multiple graphs with citrus, but have noted when grafting a mid season blooming pear until a very low chill early blooming pear that with the passage of several years the medium blooming pear graft did die off. I do not have enough information to know if this is a common event or not.

My concern would be that with different types of citrus, if the growing / fruiting season is extended it may just wear the tree out, and in a weakened condition, it would likely be more susceptible to disease/bugs.

I have one of these fruit salad trees. I bought mine from Raintree nursery Combination Fruit Trees - Raintree Nursery online ten years ago. Mine is a plum, apricot, peach and nectarine. They are around $25.00 and get shipped right to your door at around 4 to 6 feet. They taste great and produce really well. I have this plant at my Santa Barbara house. They have many different types of combo plants.

If you graft a flowering branch to a non-flowering tree, the whole tree should flower. After a graft has set in, whichever branch produces florigen first will make the entire tree bloom.
