Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: citrus varieties in order of cold-hardiness
« Last post by Ilya11 on Today at 01:41:35 PM »
I have never seen an experiment where several trees of each of these were compared with each other right around the critical cold temperature and where one type survived and one did not. Or I mean where one group clearly outperformed another group, with multiple trees from each group.

Instead of playing with unfounded pleonasmal rhetoric, you better improve your bot searching engine.
The field  experiment including Yuzu, ichang papeda and Changsha has been made many years ago.

for Florida yes, for CA it does not work on all varieties. On Fruiting, I believe its ok to let fruit when grafted tree is 3-4 yr old, size is something that is to be desired in CA

I am not at all commenting on what you need to do in California as far as anything, especially fertilization.  I should have said that to begin with! I only speak of Florida, and even more so, the West coast. The East coast of Florida has different needs as well,  As far as fruiting, that is pretty universal and anyone who has knowledge, knows when a tree is ready. The condition of that tree, size and girth to support the weight of said fruit, is all paramount, I am sure most agree,  like I think you are talking about in post above.  To me Age means nothing,  if that tree is not ready, it is not ready, plain and simple. I am sure we are mainly agreeing, just spoken in a slightly different manner since our climatic situation is so much different.

Millet,
Valentine parentage  is more complex,
it is ‘Siamese Sweet’ pummelo x ( ‘Ruby’ blood orange x 'Dancy' mandarin) that can be compared to PummeloxClementine

Yes, I am just giving my opinion on Juicy Peach from all I have read, just my gut opinion.

I am not trying to praise myself at all but most people do not care for their trees and a 4 x4 tree size is the same thing you will find here on many occasions, usually caused by letting it fruit as a damn twig.  No mulch, weeds, grass to the trunk area, improper fertilizing or forgetting to fertilize altogether are common problems. It's all common sense!  It reached 10 ft at well under 3 years actually.  8-4-8 fertilizer works great but I also give them Ironite at equal ratios depending, with every feeding. And another big thing is over watering when people fertilize! they push the fertilizer past the root zone which is a common practice in our sandy soil and the trees get little fertilization.  Sorry for hijacking, but wanted to respond! I will post a pic later that I take today.

I think once Rob spoke of how he started to appreciate the Juicy Peach flavor, many anointed it and decided it was in the top 10. lol  With all due respect to Rob, I would not put it in any top ten until you hear it over and over again from various people and hopefully they like what you like. I wish I were able to taste it for it sounds like a mango that could hit my top ten more than probably others for I like slightly tamer mangoes that still offer a pronounced flavor. I think most never grew it for the interest was on Peach Cobbler early on. Now it seems many will be growing it but it will take several more years before people start talking about it and have their own fruit to try. I do not think it will gain all star status since it will taste washed out compared to all these flavor bombs. The thing is, all these flavor bombs get to be a bit much eating day in and day out. To me, a great mango is one you can enjoy eating 3-4 mangoes at a sitting and still crave one more off the tree, now that is a superstar mango. I bet Juicy Peach does just that! But that is my system of a mango trial.  Most on here probably do not see it that way, and are looking for another Sweet Tart type, Bolt, or Kryptonite type. The ratings on here are not about balance for the most part, it is the one time taste test of knockout flavors that blow you away. I do not think Juicy Peach will remotely do that, so it will seldom if ever make a top ten placing. This is all my perspective, we shall see.
So you've never tasted it, and you don't really know, but just wanted to offer your opinion anyway?  Okay.

I think that may be Meiogyne cylindrocarpa

Looks correct to me.
