Hardy citrus fruit delivered to you.
« on: December 28, 2018, 11:30:11 AM »
For those interested in sampling some hardy citrus varieties I have a good number of Taitri fruit available. I can send a box of about 10 taitri fruit for $10 priority mail. I have a few Glen citrangedin, thomasville citragequats, yuzu and poncirus x clementine x clementine and maybe a Swingle citrumelo or two left. Shipping costs may vary depending on the variety. Various small seedlings available also.

Did your honey changsha and lemadarins ever recover?

Hi Andrew, my Honey Changsha did recover very well in 2017 but in the winter it somehow died back to the graft again. This year it has come back again and I hope we have a mild winter so I can get fruit next year. My Lemandarin is doing well and bore a few fruit last year. This year it had only two fruit. I have some new Keraji grafts out so hopefully I can get you some seeds finally next year.

Glad to hear.  My best memories of VA were garden related.  Norfolk botanical gardens, VA zoo, plants in the Shenandoah mountains and admiring your citrus grove.

Eyeckr,

Is that a Glen x Tri or a Clementine x Tri?  Looks interesting.  How does it taste?

Top left Swingle citrumelo, top right lemandarin, bottom left TaiTri, small fruit in middle is Glen Citrangedin, Greenish fleshed fruit is (Clem X Trifoliate) x Clem. I really do like the contrast of the orange peel against the lime green flesh. I would consider (Clem X Trifoliate) x Clem an edible fruit in the sense that it is just tart with little to no poncirus off flavors and no resin in the peel or flesh. It makes a good citrus drink, lemon substitute and might be good for marmalade or jelly although I've never tried.

Which seedlings do you currently have available? Which ones would survive in z7B? Thank you.

The only seedlings that I have available that might survive 7a is TaiTri.

I'm actually in z7b if that makes a difference but I would be interested in the Taitri seedlings. How much are they and shipping to 19971?

Oh, sorry I meant to write 7b. I'll PM you about the seedlings. Hopefully later this year I'll have edible flying dragon and citsuma fruit on my trees. Then I can offer some seed. Those just might do okay for you too. Clem x Tri x Clem might be worth a shot too but likely would need to be grafted on poncirus.
