My calamondins are extremely bitter. Good to mix in a jam or marmalade, but that's about it.

I'm sorry about the drought in your neck of the woods. I wonder if severe pruning would help reduce your plants need for water, at least until the rain shows up again?
Very simplistic. Scientific investigation requires strict control of variables and reproducibility of results to be valid.
nice pics,, besides the ones you mentioned a few others that I've seen do well in drought conditions are jujube , surinam cherry and pomegranate
You don't have any dragon fruit? Would consider planting Cereus sp. and Opuntia sp. (have to check on individual selections tolerance to moisture especially for fruit set). They will always produce drought or no drought. The pictures look more like Southern, CA then Fuji,.
I think it is asking too much to expect a nursery to cover a disease issue two years after the purchase.
That would be understandable if the disease wasn't one that was shipped with the tree as is likely the case with the Southern Blush. Nurseries need to be held responsible for spreading malformation because there should be an implied warranty that you're getting a healthy tree when you buy it.
I planted a few Ice Cream Bean from seed in May of last year (beginning of the tropical dry season here). Two have their first flowers now. So, yes, one year from seed!
My trees are approximately 3-4 meters tall now (10-14 foot).
The '3 year old trees' in the original post should be fruiting by now in Hawaii.
