Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Sansho Pepper
« on: June 20, 2019, 05:50:43 AM »
It said Sansho is in the citrus family.  Do you know its genus and species?
Near the end, it said it is a good to sprinkle it on vanilla ice cream.  I was reminded that some like chiltipine powder on vanilla ice cream.  Chiltipine is the wild ancestor of domestic chili peppers and is extremely hot, but also with a strong pepper flavor aside from the hot flavor.

I had no idea that it is used on ice cream, I have to try that  ;D


You need both the male and female plants if you want to get any berries to form, so you'd probably need to grow several seedlings together. (Although the leaves can also be used)

I have a Sansho bonsai, and I was hoping to have some fruit this year, but I guess I will have to find another one

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Yuzu (EU)
« on: June 20, 2019, 04:33:58 AM »
Last year I got my hands on some Yuzu fruit imported from Japan. I sow the seeds and now I have way too many seedlings. I have many available, I would love to trade for some other citrus seedlings or budwood. I would also be willing to ship them out for free as long as you cover the shipping fees.

Send you a PM

kabosu, bushiyukan, naoshichi.


But sometimes the small size is advantage.
I really like my hanayuzu tree, I am using it as substitute for lemon and small fruit has juice just for one cup of tea so it perfectly fits. No need to store juice or cutted fruit.


Hanayuzu, Hong yuzu, Shishi yuzu 花ユズ、本柚子、獅子柚子.j

Thank you for your clarification. Those pictures really show a lot!

Edit: I've updated the post

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Micropropagation
« on: May 23, 2019, 02:31:18 AM »
I think micropropagation could be really interesting, especially for citrus. However, it does require extensive equipment. Furthermore, you can't really determine if your propagated plants have a juvenile phase or not, which means you should base your method on work that was previously done (or be patient).

I was also wondering if it could be useful to graft citrus seedlings? I have some experience with in vitro grafting of tomato, and the protocol is very straightforward (if you have the right equipment). Would grafting citrus seedlings give the same benefits as grafting rootstock with scion? Any experiences?

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Micropropagation

This is a very interesting question, I have thought about this myself. During micropropagation, the cells undergo dedifferentation. It could be that therefore the plant could have a juvenile stage again.

Citrus General Discussion / How to promote new growth on Scion?
« on: May 16, 2019, 03:30:11 AM »
Earlier this year I bought some interesting Citrus varieties. They have started to grow new branches, but I've noticed that 4 out of 5 plants all started new growth on the rootstock part of the plant. Is there any way to promote growth on the scion (other than just removing the new growth on the rootstock part)?
The rootstock is P. trifoliata and the scion is C. sphaerocarpa (kabosu)

11
The Yuko plant I ordered is coming from the UK. The Yuzu and Sudachi is imported to Europe as fruit, not plants.
I believe at some point, seeds were brought from Japan to Europe. Other Japanese cultivars like Citrus Sphaerocarpa (Kabosu) are available in Europe, indicating that they must have come here at some point.

12
I guess it will be interesting to find out if my Yuko is true or not  :D

13
I did find a Citrus Yuko plant (it being shipped right now), but I don't know anything about the authenticity of the plant (might want to check it at some point). Last year there were a couple of companies that import Japanese Citrus from Japan. I was able to find Yuzu this way and Sudachi was unfortunately out of stock. I might be able to find these again this year.

14
Anyone any idea where to find Citrus Sudachi in Europe? I know theWasabicompany cells Sudachi trees but It will be difficult and expensive to get them here. I will be able to find fruit by the end of the year, but perhaps somebody has some material.

You can find Yuzu seeds on ebay, although I am not sure about the quality and authenticity of the seeds.

I have recently acquired some great Poncirus Trifoliate plants that I want to use as rootstock to practise some grafting. I am looking for some budwood, since my own plants are not yet of size. I mainly collect Japanese citrus varieties but I open for anything.

Some species that I already have:
- Kabosu
- Yuzu
- Citrus obovoidea
- Citrus flaviculpus
- Citrus kejari

Some species that I am mainly looking for (but once again, open for anything)
- Yuzu (mine are seedlings)
- Sudachi
- Yuko

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Re: Where to buy citrus online (EUROPE)
« on: February 28, 2019, 09:24:25 AM »
You can write them an email in english. Shipping is around 40 Euro for Germany if I remember right. Good plants. A reliable nursery.

Thank you for your answer, I will try that!

Does anyone have any experience ordering at Rakytnik? They don't have an English website so I am not sure to what countries they ship.

Thank you for your replies, it helps a lot  :) . Unfortunatly, it still seems hard to get my hands on some of the citrus species I am looking for, but I will be on the lookout for them.

Citrus General Discussion / Need help with polyembryonic yuzu seedlings
« on: January 24, 2019, 08:03:23 AM »
Hi there,

In december I was able to get my hands on some yuzu fruits imported from Japan. I am a big fan of Japanese citrus varieties so I took this oppertunity to collect the seeds. I planted the seeds in normal potting soil and surprisingly, many germinated! I have some questions about these seedlings:

1. Some sources say that yuzu seedlings are not polyembryonic and therefore my seedlings could be some other varity. I also saw some other sources say that yuzu could be polyembryonic and therefore it should not be a problem. What can I expect from these seedlings? For now, I have germinated up to four plants from one seed.

2. I know that citrus seedlings are not true to their parents, however to what extent are they not true to their parents? My thoughts are that if I have many seedlings, there should be some that could be closely related to the parent trees

3. Can I seperate the seedlings from each other (using root inducing growth hormones)?

4. Not relevant to the topic, but does anyone know where I can find other Japanese citrus varities (yuko, sudachi, kabosu etc.) in Europe?

Any help is appreciated!
