Big fruits are Shunkokan on left and Wekiwa on the right (I have the tree labelled as Wekiwa, but I am not sure).
In the center are Miyagawa satsumas.
Bottom line are Sun Chu Sha mandarin, citrus clementine R6 x citrus limon hybrid and AMOA 8 (Avana x Moro)

What does the Clementine R6 taste like?  Is it more lemony in taste?   The Amoa 8  does not seem to be available in the USA, although the tree is growing and fruiting in the Citrus Variety Collect at University of California at Riverside.  I noticed that the Amoa 8 does not turn red until late in the maturity.   The Italians have hybrid many citrus with the Moro to get red fruit. -Millet

This is my first crop of lemon hybrid, so may be, taste will improve. Juice tastes like lemon juice with a drop of orange juice.

This year, I let some Amoa 8 fruits on tree several months longer. It developed red colour on peel and red coloration of pulp become more reddish, nearly black, while taste is still very good.
