Title: What is this?
Post by: Hawaya on July 07, 2019, 12:22:51 PM
Hello!

I bought a plant - mandarin, but this surely is not mandarin. What is this? This citrus has big petiole and long thorns. Tt's probably wild citrus - grapefruit?

Not a mandarin, possibly sour orange.

This is not a mandrin. Looks like a seedling satsuma....perhaps Brown Select. Hard to tell but not mandrin.

Petiole is not large enough to be grapefruit or pummelo.

Like I said, I would go with some type of sour orange. There are many different types in Europe.

Thanks for the answers. It's possible that it's sour orange - it looks similar. Or maybe it's yuzu? :) But leaves smell citrus, so it's probably it's not yuzu. Sour orange is a good citrus for grafting? If not, I send it back :).

In Poland, citrus fruit is not grown (only at home), so the virus probably does not exist, but better not to risk. I give back the plant. Thank you again for answering and greetings from cold Polish :).

Macrophylla?
The graft died and the rootstock took over.
