Cold Hardy Citrus / What is happening to these flying dragon fruits?
« on: October 15, 2018, 02:27:20 PM »
Out of the 60 or so fruits I picked from my little tree about 5 had these injuries. Some were only 'leaking' but one had its seed come out. I have never seen this. Any ideas?

Citrus General Discussion / When to repot
« on: August 12, 2018, 07:43:59 AM »
I have some citrumelo seedlings six of which are in a tiny community pot. I was wondering when the best time was to separate and pot them individually was. Should I repot now or better do it next spring?
Also, is there a general rule when to repot citrus?
Thanks!

Cold Hardy Citrus / Citrumelo seedlings
« on: June 12, 2018, 04:24:22 AM »
These are some seedlings from fruits of "Sacaton" citrumelo that I picked at Eisenhut's.
I think they look rather odd. Some are completely monofoliate, with winged petiole, others are mono-, bi-, and trifoliate.


In fact, there is only one seedling that looks like a normal citrumelo to me:


There is a large Yuzu nearby. Could these be Citrumelo x Yuzu? Or is it too early to tell?
Thanks!

Cold Hardy Citrus / Hamlin x Flying Dragon
« on: May 25, 2018, 03:21:13 PM »
I have recently received budwood of this cross and grafted it on Poncirus. This is actually only my second succesful graft.
However, I can find very little information on it and would be grateful if anyone could share what they know.





cheers

Let's hope it is as hardy as they say.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Most exotic fruit for cool/short summers
« on: April 12, 2018, 04:21:00 PM »
I live in Switzerland, most years we're in zone 8a. Winters are usually long and very damp and summers lack heat. Prolonged freezes are not unusual.
To give you an idea: I can grow figs succesfully although the second crop only ripens in good years.

I have acquired some early pomegranates and a Kaki "early fuyu" but they haven't flowered yet.

Any additional ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Citrus General Discussion / Large spines on second growth
« on: August 28, 2017, 10:07:29 AM »
I've noticed that some of my citrus plants grow unusually large spines on their second flush and well, I wonder why. Any ideas?
It is the first time my seed-grown Poncirus does it whereas my ichangensis x sinensis has done it before.

Poncirus


C. ichangensis x sinensis

Cold Hardy Citrus / Taichang lemon
« on: June 08, 2017, 04:03:06 AM »
I was given some seeds of this interesting hybrid and three germinated. I'd like to know how they do with members here since there is not much information to be found on the internet. Apparently, they taste good enough and have some cold tolerance (which isn't surprising considering the parents). Pictures are most welcome.
Thanks!

Cold Hardy Citrus / Citsuma Prague
« on: April 15, 2017, 07:43:56 PM »
I'd like to share a picture of my Citsuma Prague which is the most bizarre citrus I have.
It has grown pretty well but it seems it wants to grow in all directions but upwards. If I let it grow it would be much wider than tall.
I know Ilya has one, too. I'd love to see some pictures.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Ichangquat other than 6-7-2
« on: March 23, 2017, 01:20:32 PM »
I have just bought an Ichangquat and I was told it is a sister hybrid of the 6-7-2 and that it came from the US but I couldn't get any more information (ie. on hardiness or taste). So, I'd appreciate any additional information there might be.
