Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Some of my trees

WOW!!! Congratulations Nélio, it's just fabulous!!!  ;D

But you should not take it with certain cholesterol lowering  drugs.
Like grapefruit it is high in furanocoumarins and naringin interacting with  metabolism of basic statins.
I don't make any medication. I try to controle only by what i eat but it's not easy. One thing that result very well with me is the vegetable achocha but it's perenial...

Your yuzus have less seeds?
What do you mean? The pictures are from a yuko (I corrected the typo), not from a yuzu.
My yuzus are hon yuzus (the common yuzu) and have many seeds but I don't care because the main interest of yuzus is the zest.
Hi! My friend i don't know, my knowlege regarding yuzu is very basic. I don't know much about yuzu varieties...  ;D

Louisport, to bad you did not mention wanting a Dekpon seed before the Citrus Expo.  The Dekopon on the judging table had a couple plump seeds.  I could have taken one and sent it to you.   I have two Dekopon trees, one growing in the ground, and one as a container tree.  If I find a seed I'll post it here.
Thank's a lot my friend! I will wait for your seeds. You are my only hope...  ;D

The Yuko A Native Japanese Cirus
http://www.tokyofoundation.org/en/topics/japanese-traditional-foods/vol.-11-the-yuko-a-native-japanese-citrus
Yuzus are so beautifull trees... in fact the only less of this fruit is the huge number of seeds. I just don't get why Japanese don't export nishiki tada trees to Europe and US!  :-\

> The seedless Yuzu or Nishiki (tada) is extremely hard to find outside of Japan - as are the true Yuko.
In France, in private collections,  you can find everything you want.
A yoko in my garden:



They are very beautifull, congratulations! Your yuzus have less seeds? Thank's!  ;D

It is a variety of mukaku Yuzu, seedless yuzu.
The defect ( chromosome asynapsis) is genetic  and results in defective ovules and pollen.
The taste of fruits  is close to Yuzu, although the juice and peels have somewhat different composition.

Thank's a lot for your reply! Do you know any source? Thank's!  ;D

Thanks, Bush!
Here’s hoping they make it through the winter. I m keeping them in the pots over winter and planting in spring. That had always been my plan but briefly considered planting this fall. Several folks said to plant in fall but more and more authoritative ( if that’s possible) people said spring gives highest degree of success.
Can’t remember if I mentioned that I’m adding 5 grafted trees: Atwood, Benson, Shenandoah, Maria’s Joy, and Lehman’s Chiffon. Probably going to save a spot or two for selected seedlings of Overleese, Jerry’s Big Girl, Al Horn, or Summer Delight which I plan to start in February.
That's great! Your pawpaw orchade is growing fast!  ;D

The seedless Yuzu or Nishiki (tada) is extremely hard to find outside of Japan - as are the true Yuko and Sudachi - and it seems to me that most people in Europe who have either of them are not very keen on sharing.. :-\  You could also try Kabosu (C. sphaerocarpa) which is currently available from Adavo and is also used in cuisine.
Thank's a lot for your tips! What do you think about this one? I'm thinking to buy this one: http://www.citrusandlife.com/en/nursery/51-yuzu.html
Do you know another better variety of yuzu with more juice and less seeds? Thank's!  ;D

I have never ordered there, since they only ship to EU countries but it looks ok.

Mind you – much of what I write here is not personal experience. I only have Hana Yuzu.
Ichang lemon has more juice than Yuzu but, of course, it is not a Yuzu. I think it is still worth a try. Hana Yuzu has fewer seeds than the normal one but also smaller fruit and the fragrance is less powerful. The seedless Yuzu would be best but it is almost impossible to find.

Check out this link with a lot of information about different Yuzu types: http://forum-agrumes.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=41&sid=7cbbc5468736366e413e2a79d67ccd9c
Thank's a lot for your reply! This spanish seller got the trees from Holland. They seams very nice and as the purpose of them is sell fruit i think they should be nice. I just see seedless yuzu trees on Japan...
