Tangor  "TaCle"




Overripe fruit is quite pigmented. But I'm not very excited. Fruits badly hold on to the plant. The ripe fruit quickly loses its quality

"Therefore, organic fertilizers are a very poor choice for container grown trees."

Really?
I grow citrus only in containers and I use the most organic fertilizers.
More precisely (because I'm often asked): In the spring I use Osmocote 6M or 8M (about 1/6 according to the instructions) and the rest is only organic. Pelletized manure (cattle, sheep, horse, hen - I alternate it). Once or twice a year to add toppings liquid humus. That is all.
The most important thing is keeping the optimum humidity mode in the container !

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.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Report on winter 2017/18
« on: April 28, 2018, 02:14:58 AM »
Location: Brno / CZ (130 km north of Vienna and about 150 m higher), climate similar as Zitrusgaertner, climate zone 6b / 7.
Temperatures from official measurements.

Very problematic was the second cooling (20.3) after the previous warming (10.3)

Citruses do not grow in loose soil, but in pots.
Some of me Plants are up to 2.4m tall, stems are up to 6cm in diameter.
The plants are winter outdoors in the garden. They are located at the house (U unheated part of the house) in the distance 0-3m. Only in the case of heavy frosts are covered with a car canvas (such as a common plastic with a reinforcement) in two layers.

This way they are grown: Hybrids (Unshiu x P. trifoliata) ITSZ Prague, Morton Nr93, Rusk, Citrumelo SW4475 F2, USA119, Sanford F2 Curafora, Trifeola, Clementina Crete X Rusk, HRS899-A and Mandarin Changsha.

2017/2018 - without any damage
2016/2017 - protection performed at -16.1C. They were slightly damaged some leaves. Only at HRS899-A - all less than 2cm were dead

Sylvain :
It will come to me the same as other years. First up, but quickly turn down. It will be seen later.

Ilya11 :
Rather I think not ( The image can not be pasted now, I will try later).  I'll watch.
But stigma is not sticky. Or just little.



Zitrusgaertner :
Part of the leaves will always remain over the winter.

I have to ask.
Have you ever seen a real chimera for yourself? I do not think so.
Do you know or even have some citrus chimeras from the former USSR?
I've seen some of it in very old photos (50's or 60's). And it looked very convincing. E.g. orange, sometimes with trifoliate leaves. I saw some at noon. And it was always a plant without the other part - a pure orange. When cutting the screws, the second genome remained on the original plant. Is it even possible? If so, could it happen to the hybrid (Unshiu X P.T.) ITSZ Praha? If it's a chimera.

I wanted so much to have seeds in the fruit. That's why I polished all of them. I did not care about nature. Unfortunately, no seeds.

I wanted to see the seeds and wanted to plant them. Just like Sylvian did.

In my opinion, this is the only way to get answers to some questions about the plant without the use of specialized workplaces and laboratories.

"I am not aware of specific fungicides to treat citrus Greasy spot disease"

Maybe misunderstood or poorly translated.
It may not be specific, but must be available on the market. Other climate, other cultivated crops, other demand for fungicides.
In the Czech Republic :
1. Each fungicide must be registered and tested. Registration is for a high fee and is only valid for a limited time. If it is little sold, the manufacturer will not renew the registration and the product will stop selling.
2. Part of fungicides may be sold freely, part only to holders of permits for the handling of dangerous or environmentally damaging substances. Getting this privilege requires the appropriate education, passing the exam and of course paying the fee. Normal people who do not live with farming do not have this right.
What is not specific to you may be specific to me (if I can not buy it in the store, it's specific to me  ;) )


"Treatment for greasy spot fungus is easy enough. The best treatment around is to use one of the copper fungicides out there and spray the tree with it. Use the copper fungicide according to directions in order to kill the citrus tree fungus."

Hmmm. There is nothing more to say. Just : Come and show how easy it is! None of the fee available fungicides in the Czech Republic against the Greasy spot does not work. This is not just my experience, they are also in the big garden with citruses (ADAVO, https: //eshop.rakytnik.com/katalog/zbozi/citrusy, I think you know it) and many others. Of all free available fungicides, the Greasy spot will limit only one. It is based on copper - the active substance is copper oxidchlorid. It only reduces but nothing more.
In the category of fungicides sold only to holders of the authorization are fungicides, where they really apply then: Treatment for greasy spot fungus is easy enough.
Ilya, it's my personal experience, not that somewhere he said, somewhere he wrote.

Ilya,
the same was with me. First was very complete and helpful, but later he has not responded.
I just gave the samples, I took them to the university lab, I defined what I want to know. I had doubts, and so it was repeated again.

I received the results by e-mail. Three short sentences.
I asked for details. Without an answer. After many urgings, I learned that he thought your colleague had already sent me or yes, yes, I'll send. I just received a list of what was tested for the first time and the second time. I do not have anything to do with the third repeat tests. Just one sentence in an email.

The list that I received is also an artificial mixture of "C. unshiu 'Planellina + ITSZ doublelist". Logically I assume that if there was only one peak in the histogram, I would have been told that the analysis was not conclusive. But I was told that the data obtained eliminated chimerism. This should mean that there were two peaks in this sample. If this is not a big mistake. Direct ignorance. It is possible, but I do not want to believe it.
