Thanks for bringing these plants to my attention. I had never heard of them before, very interesting.

Fingers crossed that all goes well over there. Here, winter has been very mild but that can change very quickly.

I can ask the citrus growers from university of Prague if they still have some plants. They dig out lots of old subtropical trees, old citrus trees are ok, but radically pruned.

It would certainly be interesting to see what gems they still have hidden somewhere.

Some leaves on mine show it too. Interestingly enough, a graft that I made this year does not show it on any of its leaves.


Btw. how is your crop looking this year, Sylvain?

Thanks a lot Ilya for this comparison.

If only we had something like that here!

Yes.

> Poncirus polyandra is not as hardy as trifoliata, or so I was told but I do not know how much it can take. The few people who have it do not want to risk their plants (yet).
I shall try next winter.

And I shall follow your tests with great interest :). But Mikkel's remarks are not too encouraging.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Amazing Changsha tangerine survived 8F freeze!
« on: November 07, 2018, 01:34:05 PM »
I didn’t get above freezing here that week. I lost everything that wasn’t covered and heated except one dunstan.

That's exactly our problem here too! I lost a citrange Cunningham Livurce to a freeze that lasted over a week.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Snek ́s citrus container plantation
« on: November 06, 2018, 12:50:35 PM »
To Florian :
No, I have not.
I have no greenhouse. I have a small garden and there is no place for it. Citruses are as much as possible outside. Every winter I move the plants to the house, where I make a shelter made of wooden prisms and polycarbonate. Here are citruses from December to the end of March. I do not use heaters or lighting. The biggest problem is effective ventilation.

Thanks a lot! I have some container citrus but they do not look nearly as good as yours. What kind of potting soil and fertiliser do you use?

Awesome!

Do you have a topic on your way of working? (greenhouse, lighting,...)

Cheers!
I would be interested in knowing more too!

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Name game
« on: November 04, 2018, 01:13:22 PM »
You did by no means annoy me, I was merely curious. I do not know what the correct name for such a cross would be but I would prefer Ichan(g)dia.

Poncyrus trifoliata x mandarin = citrandarin
Ichangensis x mandarin = ichandarin
Poncyrus trifoliata x citrus aurantium = citradia
Poncyrus trifoliata x pomelo = citrumelo
So, ichangensis x citrus aurantium = ? ( “Iradia”, ichantium”, “ichadia”?)

Doesn't really belong here and I'm sorry if I missed it but is there a reason you always spell Poncirus Poncyrus?

My potted N1Tri has flowered for the first time this year and I thought all the flowers had dropped but today, I discovered this tiny fruit.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Poncyrus juice resin settling procedure?
« on: November 02, 2018, 01:39:41 PM »
I made a jelly/jam only using the poncirus juice and diluted it a bit with orange juice and it turned out great!

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Parentage of a hybrid?
« on: November 01, 2018, 05:36:35 AM »
There is also a phenomenon that the hybrid often inherits more traits from its mother. Therefore, it does matter which way the cross is made but sometimes one way can be much more difficult than the other or impossible.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: First fruits of Citrumelo 5star x Morton cross
« on: November 01, 2018, 05:31:37 AM »
I will certainly follow this hybrid's development with great interest! Keep us updated.

Well done, Ilya. It will be interesting to see if the fruit quality changes (improves) over time.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Large poncyrus fruit!
« on: October 28, 2018, 11:11:18 AM »
I'd still like to know their diameter and I will check some fruit here for comparison. We see late spring freezes too but so far, the Poncirus have not been affected.

I just found a 1/4 dollar it is the same size as a 1 Euro coin.

We use neither USD nor Euro, that doesn't help much ;). I prefer Sylvain's suggestion.

How large are they? I can't tell from the picture.

I did not mean to offend any French , we are good neighbours ;) :). And of course, I do not want tristeza.

Tada Nishiki fruit in Europe
https://web.archive.org/web/20160703172020/http://www.nielsrodin.com/blog/2014/12/02/19-Tadanishiki-yuzu-sans-p%c3%a9pin.aspx

someone in France with a seedless Yuzu
http://www.forum-agrumes.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=460&hilit=tada&start=50
Yes but no one is selling plants of it...  :-[


The French somehow are not too eager to share their rare citrus. Either I get a 'no' or no answer at all. Of course, not all are like that but If I had the seedless yuzu I would be sharing it all over Europe - the more the merrier.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Yuzu... my new obsession!
« on: October 25, 2018, 02:11:42 AM »
Is Mukaku yuzu the same as tada nishiki?

It seems to be different Mukaku yuzu is a yuzu with a genetic abnormality making it seedless.
Tada nishiki is a hybrid of yuzu with seedless small fruits.
Could you please provide a link
 I read many times elsewhere that Tada nishiki is a large fruited seedless Yuzu and  assumed that it is just a variety of Mukaku
Yes, that's what I thought – hence my question.
