Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Variegated Thomasville Citrangequat

Absolutely Millet and I'm definitely going to cut off all the other non variegated branches to force growth into this one sport. This tree is going to get a lot more of my attention.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Variegated Thomasville Citrangequat
« on: June 09, 2019, 03:07:30 PM »
I was checking out all plants this morning and something caught my eye amongst my potted trees. I saw that one of my Thomasville seedlings started making what appears to be variegated leaves. Hopefully it will stabilize and I can propagate it.

I'm not exactly sure how much cold it can take without any issue other than my 8a but I would guess at least 7b when grafted up on trifoliate.

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Citsuma scions for sale
« on: June 04, 2019, 11:05:18 PM »
I just trimmed up my citsuma and have some fresh scions up for grabs. $5.00 for a couple scions shipped. Very hardy for me and never been phased by my 8a zone. I'm sure it could handle more cold.

Yes, I forgot to mention my tree is a rooted cutting.

Here is my Harvey lemon. It was a lot bigger but I Ieft it out in its pot to test how much cold it would take totally unprotected. It saw 23 then 22 degrees a couple nights in a row in its pot, died back nearly to its roots but is coming back strong.  It probably would've taken the cold better if grafted and planted in the ground. Im assuming it may be just as hardy as Meyer lemon or a couple degrees more hardy.

Amazing graft Kumin and good luck with all your trials.

Lavender87 you mention ripening of Thomasvilles. As long as they are sized up and juicy I've always used them like a lemon or lime substitute while they are green and they taste fine. Are you trying to get them to ripen until they are totally orange and eat them whole like a kumquat?

Beautiful tree and nice work Ilya! Congrats. I'm interested to see how the fruit turn out.

I'd say it has a clean lemony flavor with a hint of lime and spice.

I have budd blood in my collection.  It colors up nicely for me but of course I do have colder nights up here in the fall even though it doesn't need it. The outside looks like a regular orange. It has a good flavor and the fruit have held well on my little tree. These are last two fruit out of about seven it produced last year.

I have baboon lemon and I do chuckle whenever I say the name. Mine makes an extra large smooth skinned lemon not too different than the shape and size of an ostrich egg. They do not resemble my ponderosa lemons. I did not take pictures of my fruit last year but here some fruit forming now.

Great work Joe. I am like you often gardening and grafting at night. Good luck achieving your 175 varieties. Such amazing variety. Only 15 more to go!

I see you trimmed the lower area up. I'm not sure if you remember but you gave me a seedling years ago when I stopped by. I still have it in a pot and almost managed to kill it a few times but it is a super resilient little guy that keeps hanging in there.
