Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Taichang lemon
« Last post by Ilya11 on Today at 09:25:12 AM »
I had a very similar fingered  form of Morton fruits in the past and assumed that was because of mites present during a flowering.
But certainly your plant is very far from Taichang  with its elongated fruit,  rough appearance and trifoliate leaves.
I can not imagine a  known poncirus hybrid that could be its pollen parent.
What was a source of this seed?

Man is too busy. Tried to link before and wanted to charge me like a tourist for farm tour because time is too precious, though I bet it moves like Molasses in the valley. Then my friend tellís me he got the royal treatment because friend of friends. Understandable , but I a no barney , I like using my time wisely , and we all learn from each other. When I host I just make sure the person is cool first or just cut it short if your not feeling it when they get there. People have their various hustles of course. I wouldnt doubt if someone but a bamboo pole roadblock at the bottom of the road and charged to enter. Hey, I donít like tourist or selfie sticks either. What can you say. Micah , big ups , hope itís all growing well for you.

micah, i still await your reply to my PM buddy.

Micah forgot his password to his original user name, his new one is "Fruitdork" - but I dont think he comes on here anymore, only rarely. would have better chances of getting in touch with him on facebook. and to be fair, hes got a lot going on, wife and kids, cpl properties to manage, a business etc.

Ive got seedlings of molina, montalban, an unnamed moist type as well as seedlings of dry types, not sure if any are yellow skinned though.

I am not sure of anything and that's why I am asking the forum.
This is the first thing I thought of but when I search the net the pictures look very different.

We had a terrific Kutejensis at the agro park in Tenom, really one of the best fruits of our trip there.  However, this was in August, so donít know if that tree would have fruit now.  Also the tree is in an area outside of the public gardens but you can get someone to take you there.

i already went there, thats where the unripe kesusu and kura-kura was. did you have other kutejensis to compare? i have been finding a lot in Miri, and I find that i really enjoy them, i ate one this morning, and a mangosteen after, it was an explosion of flavor in my mouth like I had never had before

 is there a difference between highland/lowland versions and/or moist/dry varieties?
[/quote]  Dry types are for processing. Moist can be eaten as dessert fruit. Grows and produces well in warm wet humid subtropics. Pest free after decades  BUT is intolerant of shade
