Record Buck Citrus Satsuma
« on: April 25, 2017, 11:29:23 PM »
Home Depot carries what is labeled as "satsuma tangerine" from record buck grafted onto kuharski rootstock from Florida.  I have not been able to find any information as to exactly what variety of satsuma it is.  My guess would be owari as it is the old standard standard satsuma variety but was wondering if anyone on this board had any more knowledge as to the variety?

Pretty sure it's Owari.  You can email Record Buck Farms - danny@recordbuckfarms.com

They took a while to get back to me the first time I emailed them.  A couple of follow up emails I sent were not answered. 

I think you can pull up their facebook page and they might have their phone number too.  A little Googling will find it.

You've got to remember, they are a huge operation and usually only deal with retailers who are ordering thousands of plants at a time, so the little guys like you and me probably don't get as much attention.

The one from Home Depot and Lowes are Owari, OSH sells the Miho on occasion.
I bought mine from those locations, the Miho Wase had the generic tag on it, no origin.
I grew it into a dwarf citrus bonsai, very heavy fruit bearing tree.
