I have many seedlings I was given kindly from others and also different crosses of my own but less in number. Mostly only 1 to 6 each. My breeding stock are small potted plants with only a few fruits many didn`t flower until now.
The challenge I face is how to keep them? Most of the hybrids are not suitable for a winter here, not now at least. One or two generations further it might be possible that at least some will survive. e.g. Microcitrus hybrids are no way hardy enough. I use them for the precocious flowering trait. that needs a large number of seedlings for selection and some generations backcrossing with hardier hybrids. Even if a precocious seedling is flowering after 2 or 3 years this means 2 or 3 winter with many seedlings in my small greenhouse beside my breeding stock and other  non Citrus projects. Breeding is way easier with annuals, like tomatoes :)
This summer I started to plant out open pollinated F2 hybrids of Citrumelo and others. This is not a hard decision for me. Either they survive or they don't..
I am sure there are some hardier among them. A small Swingle F1 survived last winter, so there will also be some F2.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Ichangquat other than 6-7-2

My question was for @Sylvain (just forgot to link it). I read other impressions before but I wonder what Sylvains taste like.

What is its taste like? There is no Poncirus in its parentage, right?

This is my 245 from Eisenhut in ground at Lake Constance. No flowers yet.


What kind of winter protection do you use? How cold is it in winter in your region?

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Flying Dragon any variety
« on: June 28, 2018, 06:26:34 PM »
it is interesting that all different FDs gave standard PT seedlings. Do you think the seedlings are F1 or the mother plant?

I have sown many FDs but none of the seedling became a true FD. Most of them look like standard Poncirus, some have slightly curved thorns but nothing more. I have no idea if this is always the case.

Interesting. I observed similiar seedlings of Batumi Citrumelo.

did you already have fruits?

That is bad news. I read they made grafts after the first winter, but never read anything about it again.
At least it is not the hardy mandarin one was hoping for.

What happened to the PVHM from BocaJoe? No new information is to be found..
Any gossip?

Itīs been some years I visited his garden. I really can`t remember.

Hamlin x FD from Andreas Voss is a seedling of this hybrid. He got seeds from Riverside.

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

« on: May 19, 2018, 04:51:41 PM »
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?
« on: May 10, 2018, 03:28:14 PM »
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.

it is not the thread I am thinking of, I keep looking.

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?
