@usirius

here you can find Bernhards original description of the different types.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Ichangensis froze to death, then bloomed.

a flowering Ichang Papeda seedling in my backyard. A very tiny plant. Probably not a pure one.

I also found this "flower at the top" in some Ichangensis seedlings. Only a very few of hundreds. Some N1tri seedlings (an Ichangensis hybrid) have also flowered in the first year. All of them did not flower the next year. Only 1 Ichang Papeda seedling started to flower regularly again at the age of 4 years.
Your seedling does not look like a pure Ichang Papeda. But even pure Ichang Papeda are not as hardy to me as Poncirus.

Is there a nursery in Spain which is offering Piera?

beautiful! I like the narrow leaved types the most. Interesting to see that you have exactly the same herbs around like I have in my garden half way round the world :)

I like your work!
+10F was the average low for my area some years ago. In the last winters it is around +21F (-6C).
These second survivors might be already hard enough for my climate.
How many survivors are there now in total?

To have a monofoliate cold hardy hybrid is an interesting progress

Today I found a living rootstock of the Khasi Papeda outside in the ground. Time will tell if it will resprout again...

I am in zone 7 but not in the last years . This winter there were nearly no frost. Khasi Papeda died back anyway.

Some years ago I got seeds from INRA Corse. Out of hundred seedlings non survived outside in opposite to Ichang Papeda seedlings.
There might be still some coming back from the roots this season but they are too cold sensitive for my climate.
I have a single plant in pot but it didn`t flower so far.

probably yes but do you think they are zygotic seedlings?

Anything new?

Your Poncirus sounds very interesting Jim. Please post about it when you have fruits.
Thanks!

I also believe that high summer heat and harvest of fully ripened fruits greatly influence poncirus taste.

My feeling is that the taste is also less bitter when the fruit is older. The fruits I tested, which were on the verge of edibility, were often less bitter.
I think that's why Ellerhoop was better when I found the first fruit. Fresh fruits from Ellerhoop turned out to be bitter, at least for my family and Till :)
The resin content of poncirus might be another story though.

No poncirus off flavors.
.... It had a sort of pine-like flavor.

For sure it is a matter of personal preferences but to me the pine-like flavour is also an off flavour.
To my impression this pine-like flavour is even more present in many F1 hybrids. At least the ones I tested.

When it comes from Ilya it is probably an N1tri seedling. Is it @Ilya11?

I just ate my first Duncan fruit. It is really a very good fruit. Sweeter than other grapefruits but not too much. That is what I liked the most.

Thanks! So far I found a plant list with only the same information as on the plant itself.

Citrus General Discussion / Giardini Hanbury Italy
« on: January 29, 2020, 03:47:43 PM »
Today I found an unnamed Citrandarin at Giardini Hanbury in Italy. I tested the first of 2 fruits and it is surprisingly good.
I wonder what it could be?
There was an discussion about Hanbury and a plant list somewhere. Does anyone can remember this thread or know where to find a plant list of Hanbury?

Thanks!

I found poncirus fruits that had already fallen to the ground were much less bitter and less resinous compared to freshly picked fruits.

 Jiri in the Czech Republic tested several varieties of Poncirus last autumn. Here is the website:

I was also sent some fruits. And I can confirm his results.

The seeds came from Ilya. I guess it was open pollination.

on B.Voss old website he reported about a Poncirus  which flowered within 1 year . He found it by accident.
 Even Eisenhut had it. Now it is lost.
@Ilya11 did you ever grew seedlings of your Voss Poncirus?

Mikkel, what has happened to those plants since you posted.

they ended up as rootstock :)

By the way, are there any ideas where HLB has been all these centuries before its recent outbreak? in Asia there should be an area where it is indigenous. Or is it a newly developed disease? Are there any sources on that?

25
I totally agree. I just don't understand why there are no legal ways to import. If e.g. NARO in Japan were to make available tested disease-free varieties, the problem would be much smaller.
As always, as long as there are bans, there will be someone to bypass them. Nobody can control the trade 100%. Sad but true. I am absolutely pessimistic about the spread of disease. Not only in Citrus.
On top import bans won't help if at the same time diseases are spread through normal trade as a by-product.
