Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Changsha mandarin opinions
« on: January 16, 2021, 12:43:24 PM »
I had considered growing Changsha here in Cincinnati, Oh but determined out mildest winters would be about like your arctic blast winters.  I would hate to think what our -12F would have done to my trees.

The 9 watt LED screw in bulb is overhead 8 inches from the tip of the tree.  I wouldn't care but the tree hits the side of the bucket and grows upside down.

All the shoots on my Fukushu kumquat turn down as they grow.  Anyone know why. They are very stiff so water is not a problem.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Fukushu graft to Flying dragon
« on: January 06, 2021, 07:49:46 PM »
I grafted 2 Flying dragon rootstock seedlings with a bud from my seed grown Fukushu kumquat tree in early September 2020.  The buds were from a leaf node count around 75 to 80.  They started  swelling first and third week in October 2020.


is it hardy enough that you have it in ground outside.

My C35 was outside in winter and took a lot of damage at 10F after over 2 months with no warm weather.

What is the difference between low buiret urea  and  High buiret urea.

My tree is in a lean2 greenhouse so tenderness is not a problem but die-off of new shoots and dropped new fruits is.  So I need to feed.  I was really hopping that with no feed since summer it would not burst out with flowers an growth until march.  I also needed to know about feed time.  Thanks

I hope so.  My lemons are turning yellow the tree is pushing out lots of new growth, and it is in heavy flower bud production and I gave it 3 gallons of Miracle Gro 24-8-16

I don't know

The fact that the phone is still active indicates she is still alive.

I was told that Meiwa kumquats were not bothered by HLB.  If so could I use Meiwa rootstock for other citrus varieties.

Where Does Valentine pomelo stand with affecting statins.  I have a Valentine pomelo and a statin.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Sanbokan vs NZ lemonade
« on: December 10, 2020, 03:21:17 PM »
I have eaten 46 NZ lemons from my in ground NZL'  They are tasty when fully ripe.  I have not eaten a Sanboken.  Keep them both or wait till you have eaten both from well mature trees.  The fruit gets better with tree age.

NZL is tree to left and it has 31 lemons this year.  We will see if they are better than last years on a smaller tree.

I use a political support sign rod to push holes down in my soil to help with aeration.  Coat hanger is too thin.  I push in 25 hole several times a year away from the trunk.

I have a Valentine pomelo on US897 roots that flowered and set fruits.  All the fruits fell before reaching the size of a marble.  It turns out that ants chewed the fruits off between the base and the fruit.  The tree flowered again and I caught what was happening with 4 fruitlets left.  I killed Many Many ants but not enough.  The tree is in ground 1 foot from the south wall of my house.  Tangle foot will only block 1 of infinite paths.  My question is How was your Valentine if you could describe in detail.  Do anyone know how to poison the ants without killing the tree.
