Citreae tribe hardiness
« on: October 13, 2018, 09:30:32 PM »
What are some relatively cold hardy in this tribe? Other than citrus, fortunella, and poncirus.

Bael (Aegle marmelos) can tolerate temps down to 20F, see https://hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/morton/bael_fruit.html

Atalantia glauca, sometimes named "Native Kumquat" or "Desert Lemon" from Australia
Probably not hardy to zone 7 though.

I might quickly mention Acronychia pedunculata here, which has been traditionally used as an ingredient in incense in China and Korea (adds a pleasant warm peppery amber wood and pine smell).

Seems like the tribe is mostly subtropical, that's tough
