The Owari next to my back door is starting to bloom. Smells marvelous!

What rootstock/s are your trees on? How old are they?

Your trees would appreciate it if you removed the grass from around their trunk.   I see you have a Bahia orange. The Bahia orange tree is the variety that was originally imported from Brazil into the USA in 1870 by the USDA. The USDA then sent out out from Washington two of the trees to Mrs. Luther C. Tibbes, of Riverside, California who grew them in her yard.. The trees were among the first to bloom and fruit in the USA.  It is from these two trees, one of which still is living, that the navel orange industry of California and mainly of the world has developed. The variety came to be referred  commonly as the Washington Navel orange, and was distributed under that incorrect name.  Later horticulturists attempted to introduce the correct name, Bahia, but to no avail: the markets had become so familiar with the designation Washington navel that it could not be supplanted.  We would be interested in seeing the rest of your citrus collection.

I have 1 Celamondine, 1 tangerine from Setúbal that is an old local variety, 1 valencia orange, 1 Cara cara, 1 Chandler pomelo, 1 Tahiti lime, 1 Vanilla orange of the variety "vaniglia apireno di Ribera", 1 Lisbon lemon, 1 usual grapefruit, 1 grapefruit from Corsega that is very big and sweet, 1 moro orange, 1 sanguinello orange, 1 Clementine Amoa 8, 1 Kumquat and 4 fingerlime (green, red, rose and yellow pulp). This is the list of all my citrus trees. 20 trees total. ;D

Louisport, the Fausterime green finger lime isn't it the one with the double thorn growth.  I used to have a fairly large Fausterine tree some year back.  It is a real pincushion tree, with thorns absolutely everywhere. You have a very nice citrus collection.

Hi! I didn't know the faustrime finger lime has those caracteristics... Thank you, and i'm trying to find two more pomelo varieties, one of yellow flesh and sweet and the hirado butan but i don't know any seller. I will have the taroco and the fragola oranges.  ;D

I read there are several varieties of Yuzu. I'm more interested about the seedless variety, but i don't know if it is a true yuzu... In Europe i don't see the yuzu varieties, just the usual one... any help?  ;D

That one is my wishing list of varigated leaves and rose inside. My lemon tree is a common one here. This tree gives big lemons every year!  ;D

The variegated lemon is quite common in the USA.  The tree is very ornamental, but the variegated lemon does not produce big crops.

I'm soo happy! I just harvest my first finger lime fruit and i just love it! It's from faustrime variety. It's tart like lemon but not so much, it's like lemon with some herbs but no acid. And no seeds! I love to eat it straight like that!  :P

LOL! Not a nursery, but i hope to be a small producer. This year my sanguinello tree produced a lot fruit and is small in size. They were big and good oranges!
Now i don't know if i get one red lemon tree or one pink flesh varigated lemon tree... what do you think? Thank's!  ;)
