Blood clementine, Australian bloodlime...
« on: December 15, 2016, 10:58:35 AM »
I have a bunch of fresh seed available right now $5 for 5 seed includes shipping in the US.

Blood clementine
Australian bloodlime
Variegated sour orange (The only variegated citrus I know of that produces variegated bud sports with the seedlings)
Fast flowering trifoliata (Flowers at 1 year old.)
Citrumello (10 seeds for $5)

3 nice seedling Faustrime plants $30 each (These are 8 months old. They start to fruit at 2 years)

Almost forgot, anyone that orders seeds... I will throw in some Chamaedorea microspadix seeds. They make great house plants or are hardy to the high teens F if you are in a warm zone.

When do the Blood Clemintines ripen? Also are these the same as Mandared Mandarins, Red Nules?

They are pretty much ripe now. No they are not the same as mandared. The seeds were sent to me as Rubino Clementine.

Had a few people ask about the fast flowering trifoliata. It is a dwarf, my mother plant is 10 years old and only about 7 ft tall. I'll get a photo up later today. I do have one year old seedlings that are dormant now. They are about a foot tall. I can not ship live plants to FL, TX, LA, AZ or CA...

This is the "Fast" trifoliata tree, 10+ years old & barely as tall as the 6' fence. (Swingle hanging over the fence)

Do you still have any fast growing seeds?
The hardest plants to grow are often those most worth growing.

Any blood citrus seeds left?
I'm also looking for flying dragon. I want to grow it just for the branches. Otherwise I'll have to order from CCPP and get seeds from the fruits or root the sticks.

Yes, I have both blood clementine & bloodlime seed. Let me check this morning & see if I have any flying dragon left out on the tree.

Do you know how frequently the blood clementine or lime comes true from seed?

That I can't answer, but mine did. Most all citrus "hybrids" come true, there are only a few citrus that don't come true.

I'd probably like to get some seeds. Is the fast growing citrus still available?

Okay. I'd like to purchase some of your blood citrus and trifoliata. I'll PM you in a bit.

Hi , I am a Canadian growing citrus in a greenhouse for past 6 yrs. I would like to buy blood clementine,Austrian Bloodlime and variegated sour orange seeds if you still have some. Just found out about you  from Cory on the Houzz citrus forum. Glad to find this site and am sure I will learn a lot here.
Thank you. Marg

Laaz, the blood clementine seeds I got from you started germinating today.  Also the Carolina Raper pepper seeds  germinated 3 or  days ago. - Thanks

Good luck with them Bob. Once spring rolls in, I'm going to start grafting a bunch of stuff up... Variegated hamlin, blood, valencia & cara cara as well as the blood clem & some others.

Not sure what I will get from the Red Clementine seeds that I planted.  Clementine does not come true from seed, but blood oranges do.  Now that the seeds are sprouting some are producing just one plant, but two of the seeds look to be nucelar with two trees coming from one seed.  The double should be true to type.  Since one varietal parent of the Red Clementine produces true and one doesn't  the zygote forum probably is dominant.   It will be interesting to see what eventually is produced.  Actually, I'm more interested in the zygote seeds as they produce a never  before seen fruit.  Many times zygote fruit are inferior, but once in a while they are the parent of a fantastic new variety.   In any case, all should have a red coloration whether they are true or not.
