Citrus taste varies strongly, depending on growing conditions. I growed tangelo Sampson for years in pot and fruits were practically  inedible. I was thinking about top working the tree, but last year I put the tree to the ground in greenhouse and next season I was really suprized by the fruit quality and taste. Skin was much thiner, more yelow then orange and fruit taste was quit good, like softly bitter, sweet grapefruit.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: Honikan mandarin
« on: October 30, 2019, 02:26:19 PM »
Could it possibly be the Japanese variety Aomikan?
It's only a guess, but I can easily imagine Aomikan being hand-written and then incorrectly read or copied as Honikan.
The variety is normally picked  in Japan while still green, but eventually turns orange.

My idea is too, that it is most likely a misspelled name.
Btw.: Aomikan is  cultivar, or it is just name for unripe mandarin?

Citrus General Discussion / Honikan mandarin
« on: October 29, 2019, 01:51:58 PM »
In former Yugoslavia nurseries they sold mandarin called Honikan.
Since that time it is in collections.
Adavo nursery in CR also sells it.
http://www.rakytnik.com/index.php/galerie/citrusy/mandarinky/citrus-reticulata-blanco/honikan
According to yugoslavian sources in 1934 japan consul sent 372 trees of unshiu, honikan and natsu mikan as gift to Yugoslavian kingdom.

But I cannot find citrus called honikan in Japan. I would like to find out what is this cultivar about.

Radoslav,

In recent publication on citrus hybrid origin based  on DNA markers it was concluded that:

"Thus, kabuchi was inferred to be an offspring of kunenbo-A as seed parent and an unidentified variety, and
keraji was inferred to be an offspring of kabuchi and kunenbo-A, but their combination was indeterminate.
This inferred parentage suggests that keraji is a backcrossed offspring of kunenbo-A."

Hello,

I found another paper which  assumes that Keraji can be a cross of Kunenbo and Kikaimikan (Kabuchi). https://ir.kagoshima-u.ac.jp/?action=pages_view_main&active_action=repository_view_main_item_detail&item_id=2762&item_no=1&page_id=13&block_id=21
In another paper  this author states, that only morphologicall difference between Keraji and Kabuchi is smell of the fruit.

As I stated before, role of DNA analysis is overestimated, if you give  DNA sample to 10 laboratories, you will get 10 different results. I remember lecture of one czech scientist, who is considered to be one of the fathers of forensic usage of DNA. (He worked on Srebrenica mass grave for example). And he said, that he is very upset with the fact, that US judges use DNA analysis as 100% evidence. Those citrus parentage games are very popular in Japan. Here is another one from 2014 : Keraji, Kabuchii, and Oto are closely related to Kunenbo based on the results of isozyme and DNA analyses. The type of cpDNA of Keraji, Kabuchii, Tarogayo, and Oto is the same as that of Kunenbo. This suggests that they arose from Kunenbo as a female ancestor because cpDNA is inherited maternally.

Another thing is, that plants, no matter if they are crossed, or backcrossed, or mutations, botanically they still can be considered as a same species.  For example citrus junos or citrus keraji, or citrus sudachi etc. It means that you can find some differences on DNA level, but botanically those diferences are not important.
In fact DNA analysis say nothing in this case,  DNA markers are not the key elements for botanical categorization, otherwise we can say, that there is no citrus keraji, no citrus oto, no citrus tarogayo, just citrus nobilis, because of kunenbo genes in each plant.

You should make a change there is a mistake in your list.
Keraji and Kabuchi are two different cultivars of mandarin, not the same.

No






オートー(C. oto hort. ex Tanaka), カーブチー(Citrus keraji var. kabuchii hort. ex Tanaka, タロガヨ(C. tarogayo Hort. ex Tanaka), ウンジュ(C. tarogayo var. uniu Hort. ex  Tanaka)

I am not a specialist, but if the situation is similar to crossing diploids with tetraploids in citrus breeding, then it will be impossible to save embryo without separation and rising in vitro.

If you ask about difference between seedling and grafted plant behaviour, in my experiences seedlings and grafted plants (no matter, if the rootstock is rooted cutting or seedling) behave differently. Especially in harash conditions, the grafted rootstock  is trying to safe itself first and has no problem to give up grafted part.
