Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Long term cold hardy citrus breeding project

but it should be possible to send seed from Europe, or not? The other way it was no problem. USDA sent me a lot of seeds years ago. Without charging anything very nice!

Thank you! I knew they don't come true, but my second plant which bloomed already produced a tiny fruit (that fell off) and the shape was very IVIA-like (so to say) But -to be true- the two plants differ a little bit. Let's see. In any case the one in my garden is quite hardy. It took -15 without protection as a young plant. Now it is more than 1m high and new branches miss any spines. That is strange and does not match with the potted tree.

I had it aswell. Mine grows in open soil grafted on 1m Poncirus in my Viennese Garden. I reported about the "strange thing" in the US-forum which is now down. The motherplant shown there is still potted. The chimera is hardy at least down to -15C.
Sylvain, may I borrow the pics from you? I have a presentation about "strange things about citrus" in a few weeks.

Hi Ilya, I read about the climate in the region where they have found swamp lemon. That's why my conclusion was -maybe less hardy than Poncirus. But hopefully I am wrong.

What about the palmtrees? Sabal minor? Or Rhapidophyllum hystrix? Swamp lemon looks like a common Poncirus -am I right? But it seems to be much less cold hardy, I suppose.

I have an Ichang Papeda IVIA in my Viennese garden (7b/8a Austria) growing on its own roots. It is now five years in ground and never got damaged in winter. Last year it had to take a whole month of freezing temperatures. Ultimate low was -12C. No protection at all. The offspring of 2017 is totally without spines that's why I hope it will flower the first time this year. A second plant in pot has bloomed in last summer. They come from seed I've got from Bernhard Voss.
