Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: F2 citrange winter hardiness trial
« on: May 18, 2020, 03:44:53 AM »
Growth habits of several Poncirus/Poncirus hybrid seedlings:

Conestoga 010: deciduous, hardy plant, small  leaves.

Conestoga 011: deciduous, very hardy plant, strong, open branches. Twin thorns frequent, small-medium leaves with wavy edges.

These two looks almost like pure poncirus to me, the leaf in the middle is shorter than usual F1 hybrid with trifoliate, the same cold hardiness as poncirus is another sign, that these are much more close to poncirus than orange...
Conestoga 011 reminds me one of my Tetraploid poncirus, shorter  petiole, wider leaves with wavy edges are one of the sign of tetraploid.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Honikan mandarin

My idea is too, that it is most likely a misspelled name.
Btw.: Aomikan is  cultivar, or it is just name for unripe mandarin?
Ao mikan 青みかん is name for unripe green mandarin -
Ao, literally means blue, but in the case of aomikan it means green. Japanese often don’t differentiate between blue and green clearly.
Mikan only stay ‘ao’, green naturally for a short time, so this is the time to enjoy them!
