Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Re: Looking for Citrus Pollen

Just chiming in with an interest for this as well, to speed breeding experiments; would love to have Minneola and Dekopon pollen in quantity.

Not an expert, but even the seedlings I've had of the Flying Dragon cultivar show a different pattern of growth, and I would think yours are not Flying Dragon.

I live in Canada, and it's a bargain  ;)

Find some friends in a similar area who want to go in on a budwood order, maybe?

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Sansho Pepper
« on: June 18, 2019, 12:49:54 PM »
The prickly ashes, Zanthoxylum, are indeed in Rutaceae and might even be graft-compatible with Citrus and Poncirus, although that's less certain.  Like Murraya spp., Zanthoxylum spp. produce a lot of interesting compounds that are pungent, citrusy, or even sort of petrochemicaly (as in the case of very good Murraya koenigii.)  My fantasy is to have a single tree with Poncirus, Murraya, and Zanthoxylum it would be a pretty interesting stink!

Now, saying the flavour is close to mandarin orange strikes me as a little silly.  Sansho is more citrusy than the green Zanthoxylum cultivars in China, and certainly moreso than the red huajiao that you'll find in most real Sichuan-style in North America (the green Chinese cultivars have only been available more recently.)  Still, there's a lot of other stuff going on there.  Very good for brightness, though!

There's at least one North American native Zanthoxylum, Z. americanum, and in the Hawaiian Islands, there's several (and if anyone has cuttings of any or all of them, I'm super interested in buying some from you!)

Looking to connect with other folks in Canada who have established hardy citrus and who would be willing to sell some cuttings.  I'm happy with occasionally buying from CCPP and buying seeds from the US for rootstock, but the costs of phytosanitary certificates pile up (to say nothing of how much worse the exchange rate makes the CCPP's non-California budwood prices), and while I know some people bring cuttings in without needing a phytosanitary certificate, I've dealt with CFIA and CBSA enough to not want to deal with the uncertainty of trying.

I'm presently most interested in Prague citsuma, Thomasville citrangequat, and other Poncirus hybrids, but would love to be in connection with other folks tinkering with hardy citrus of all kinds who might be willing to sell cuttings now and then.  Quick payment via e-Transfer, slow mail via Canada Post :)

(Also interested in any sources of Thomasville seeds in Canada or on the US west coast.)

Thanks in advance for any responses!  Would love to be a part of a more robust citrus growing community in the mild parts of Canada :)
