I just found out these seedlings came from Little Mulberry Trail Auburn, Georgia.

but it sounds like any resulting seedlings will take quite a while as the precocious is recessive.
I cross prec. P.t. and Microcitrus this season. Might be more likely to obtain something precocious again. My aim is not a frost hardy type but a whatever better precocious hybrid for further crossing. In best case something with different genes for precociousness.
I have not theoretically background about this, any idea?

They are still young. I got them 2 years ago. No idea how old they have been at that time.
I don`t have a mature Poncirus. only seedlings so far. I have a bigger plant in the garden it still refuses to bloom.
Had no luck with precPoncirus and other grafted ones. It seems Poncirus is my biggest quest.

they come from a feral population. All seedlings grow different, zygotic? Interesting.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Poncirus Seedlings
« on: May 17, 2018, 03:51:54 PM »
These are Poncirus seedlings from Georgia. The young leaves look different from other seedlings I have. The leave tips are very pointed when young but get rounder when older. Other seedlings I have (mostly from Europe) have also round tips when still young.

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Re: Buy, sell, or trade pollen here?

proper treated pollen can be viable up to 1 year. the major issue I see is will the female part still be in flower when pollen arrives.
Do you have finger limes too?

Here is one post with a link to a description how to handle it.

I was thinking about pollen trade too. There was a post about pollen treatment on the old forum I guess. I have a look whether I can find it.

I wonder if there is a best time for pollination on Citrus. I noticed that stigma isn`t always sticky over the day but I haven`t observed it to precisely to make a decision. Does it depend on day time or the age of the flower?

Professionals at work  ;)

are these seedlings or grafts? If they are seedling is there variation?

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Long term cold hardy citrus breeding project
« on: April 10, 2018, 02:02:28 AM »

I would love to be able to help on this project,
That is great! Welcome! I just have some questions I can`t wait to ask :)
I also made a few hybrids between C. ichangensis and Poncirus trifoliata,

Could you report more about these hybrids? Are fruits more likely to be edible than other Poncirus hybrids?
 
I would also put precocity high on the list; there are some good sources that I would start with. I heard mention of a precocious Poncirus, which is great, but also I would recommend finger limes or desert limes as I know those often flower in a year from seed.

I just have different types of "Microcitrus" seedlings in my greenhouse to find out how precocious they are. Do you know if this trait is herited to further generations?
Below is a picture of a Citrus (Microcitrus) australasica x Poncirus trifoliata hybrid I made at University of Florida.

Have you seen fruits of such hybrids in your work? Are they in tendency inedible like the most of Poncirus hybrids?

I am not concerned about jail but I am interested in getting seeds. The hard fact is UCR and others refuse to send them because of this regulations :(

Thanks Ilya! I wonder what is wrong with my computer...
Your`re right! These aren`t cotyledons.

Citrus General Discussion / Hybrid Seedling Cotyledons
« on: February 15, 2018, 12:40:15 PM »
This winter I grow many different hybrid seedlings. I observe that Poncirus seedlings have their cotyledons not paired like in Citrus. The 2nd cotyledon is always  higher than the first one. Citrus and Microcitrus have them very close to each other in pairs.
Citrus x Poncirus seedlings are mixed. Some are paired but the most are like Poncirus.
Does someone observed the same?
I wonder if this trait is suitable to find more Citrus like hybrids among seedlings. For now it is impossible to tell if it is connected to poncirin free fruits but would be interesting to find out.

Swamp Lemon is called Nikita in Europe.
