I have never tried this cross but I will follow your work with great interest! Thanks for sharing.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Temperature dropping, fruits still not mature

I have similar problems here Ė it seems that summer has definitely ended. If you keep them frost-free, the fruits will ripen when temperatures rise again.

Is there anything special about Sebastien's Ichang lemon? I wouldn't name a cultivar unless it was different from the others somehow..

Thanks for the history lesson, Millet. I saw this cultivar in a nursery once but didn't know what it was back then. It has never been available again ever since :-[.

Thank you all! Ilya, that was also one of my concerns. They will be put in the cold greenhouse, frost-free but cold and humid.

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?

Well, at least there are stigmas in some flowers now. That's a progress.. ;D

The Sanford does give zygotic seeds, check out the Sanford Curafora and Venasca.
Also, the Hamlin x FD (see that is currently in circulation in Europe comes from a seed grown plant and is mostly monofoliate with the occasional bifoliate leaf hence very probably from a zygotic seed.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Ichangquat other than 6-7-2

Mine is still potted and looks quite unattractive. I will have to prune it but I want to see how the fruit turns out first.
Moro, yours is a cracker!

I hadn't paid too much attention to my plant, so I was all the more pleased to find it covered in flower buds. Sorry for the bad quality photo.

This is the 245, not the 6-7-2. It will be interesting to see whether there are any differences.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Flying Dragon any variety
« on: June 29, 2018, 02:17:48 PM »
it is interesting that all different FDs gave standard PT seedlings. Do you think the seedlings are F1 or the mother plant?
My FD is not giving standard poncirus seedlings, only distorted ones.

Interesting! Mine fruited for the first time last year and out of 13 seedlings only 4 are dwarfs. But they are really, really tiny.

But then again, why not use the 2-2 for that cross?

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Re: Maypop (Passiflora incarnata) Thread
« on: June 26, 2018, 02:36:20 PM »
Thatís awesome! Nice job.
I would say here they start flowering in mid-May.
Does that mean they emerge in May (maypop) and flower within the same month? We lack the heat here, so it would be normal that we are later but that is awfully quick!

Though I will say I have not fertilized as I should. I found they respond well to fish emulsion/fertilizer. This year I used Miracle Gro All Purpose on the seedlings and they didnít seem to like it.

None of these fertilisers are available here Ė would you be able to recommend a N-P-K ratio so I can try to find something similar?

Iím currently interested in figuring out how to maximize fruiting via pruning or training. I have a theory that if you can train to a single runner, this is ideal. Wondering if pruning all side growth from leaf axils will help further or harm. I waited too late to try training a long runner but am trying to keep most side growth pruned over the last couple weeks.
Sounds interesting, keep us updated. I will let mine grow freely, now that it finally does grow.

What time of year do they usually flower for you?
Mine opened its first flower today. I am very excited as this is my first succesful attempt at growing this species. I've tried and failed twice before. I guess the key really is keeping it dryish during winter, at least where I live. It is around 2m tall right now.


Citrus General Discussion / Re: AU Blood lime
« on: June 16, 2018, 07:05:51 AM »
Last year, I was able to try some blood limes. While the flesh and juice were very sour but otherwise good, the zest had a very particular, strange smell/taste. I cannot really describe it as I don't know anything similar.. but it wasn't pleasant.

Have you read the manual that he sells on his website? I really do wonder why this method isn't used more if it is as easy and cheap as he claims..

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Citrumelo seedlings
« on: June 13, 2018, 03:02:05 AM »
Yes, that's why I thought something was odd here. Two seedlings are exclusively monofoliate so far. But I know that appearance can still change considerably.

« on: June 12, 2018, 01:52:50 PM »
Yeah well, until they are larger I will consider them as ordinary citrumelos.

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?

Mine has no spines.

Mikkel, yes it is only flowering now. Usually, it is about month earlier – no idea what's wrong.

Ilya, can you tell from these pictures which one mine is?

In IVIA's description of 235 it says that new growth is only lightly purple whereas mine is intensely purple. Am I correct in assuming mine is 358?
