Citrumelo seedlings
« on: June 12, 2018, 04:24:22 AM »
These are some seedlings from fruits of "Sacaton" citrumelo that I picked at Eisenhut's.
I think they look rather odd. Some are completely monofoliate, with winged petiole, others are mono-, bi-, and trifoliate.


In fact, there is only one seedling that looks like a normal citrumelo to me:


There is a large Yuzu nearby. Could these be Citrumelo x Yuzu? Or is it too early to tell?
Thanks!

Interesting. I observed similiar seedlings of Batumi Citrumelo.

I think it is too early to make any assumptions. I have got my Citrumelo from Ilya. It was mislabeled and is not 5-Star. I have several seedlings and every seedling looks different. It seems to be completely zygotic.

Yeah well, until they are larger I will consider them as ordinary citrumelos.

That top pic on far right looks like Ichangensis leaves to me.

Yes, that's why I thought something was odd here. Two seedlings are exclusively monofoliate so far. But I know that appearance can still change considerably.
