I read there are several varieties of Yuzu. I'm more interested about the seedless variety, but i don't know if it is a true yuzu... In Europe i don't see the yuzu varieties, just the usual one... any help?  ;D

That one is my wishing list of varigated leaves and rose inside. My lemon tree is a common one here. This tree gives big lemons every year!  ;D
This is the one i want to buy: http://agrumilenzi.it/negozio/citrus/limone-variegato-a-polpa-sanguigna-citrus-limon-foliis-variegatis-sanguineum/

The variegated lemon is quite common in the USA.  The tree is very ornamental, but the variegated lemon does not produce big crops.

Hello my friend! Infortunately he is miserable now. He suffered a lot with the extreme dry weather we got untill last month. Now it's cold and wet but i'm shure he will recover on spring.  :)

Ah ok! Pomelo doesn't like neither too hot and dry neither cold!
Good luck, wait just for the spring to come  :)

I'm soo happy! I just harvest my first finger lime fruit and i just love it! It's from faustrime variety. It's tart like lemon but not so much, it's like lemon with some herbs but no acid. And no seeds! I love to eat it straight like that!  :P

LOL! Not a nursery, but i hope to be a small producer. This year my sanguinello tree produced a lot fruit and is small in size. They were big and good oranges!
Now i don't know if i get one red lemon tree or one pink flesh varigated lemon tree... what do you think? Thank's!  ;)
