Want To Know A Lot About Cold Hardy Citrus Varieties?
« on: January 31, 2016, 09:49:21 PM »
Download the booklet titled "Hardy Citrus For The Southeast" by Tom McClendon.  It is now available on the Internet for free.  It takes 2-3 minutes to download (at least on my computer). After the download is done you have to scroll down a few blank pages to begin seeing the book.- Millet

Satsuma (Citrus reticulata) is really a class of mandarins, within which
there are several cultivars. Among them are Kimbough, Owari, and Early
St. Anne, which differ primarily in the time of ripening. As a class, Satsumas
ripen very early, with most having best quality before the peel
turns orange, and all nearly finished by Thanksgiving. Fruit do not hold
well on the tree, becoming large and puffy. However, they do store well
once picked. The fruit are easy to peel and have a rich tangerine flavor
when fresh, though not so much as some other mandarins. Satsuma does
very well along the coast in the Southeast, and commercial groves have
existed, and still do, in southern Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia.
While Satsuma has a reputation for being the most cold-hardy commercial
citrus, it isnt hardy much below 18F and anything below 15F for
prolonged periods will severely damage it.
Flavor: Sweet tangerine, no off-flavors, excellent quality.
Uses: Dessert.
Note: One of the best all-around cold-hardy citrus for the Southeast.

I know this is an old post, but when I download the booklet the last two pages (18 and 19) are blank. Anyone else?

Pages 18 and 19 are both just photos of various hardy citrus (trees & fruit).  Neither page contains written information concerning cold hardy citrus.  Most all web sites after a long period of time discard the photos - its a Google thing.
