Blood clementine, Australian bloodlime...
« on: December 15, 2016, 10:58:35 AM »
I have a bunch of fresh seed available right now $5 for 5 seed includes shipping in the US.

Blood clementine
Australian bloodlime
Variegated sour orange (The only variegated citrus I know of that produces variegated bud sports with the seedlings)
Fast flowering trifoliata (Flowers at 1 year old.)
Citrumello (10 seeds for $5)

3 nice seedling Faustrime plants $30 each (These are 8 months old. They start to fruit at 2 years)

Almost forgot, anyone that orders seeds... I will throw in some Chamaedorea microspadix seeds. They make great house plants or are hardy to the high teens F if you are in a warm zone.

When do the Blood Clemintines ripen? Also are these the same as Mandared Mandarins, Red Nules?

They are pretty much ripe now. No they are not the same as mandared. The seeds were sent to me as Rubino Clementine.

Had a few people ask about the fast flowering trifoliata. It is a dwarf, my mother plant is 10 years old and only about 7 ft tall. I'll get a photo up later today. I do have one year old seedlings that are dormant now. They are about a foot tall. I can not ship live plants to FL, TX, LA, AZ or CA...

This is the "Fast" trifoliata tree, 10+ years old & barely as tall as the 6' fence. (Swingle hanging over the fence)

Do you still have any fast growing seeds?
The hardest plants to grow are often those most worth growing.

Any blood citrus seeds left?
I'm also looking for flying dragon. I want to grow it just for the branches. Otherwise I'll have to order from CCPP and get seeds from the fruits or root the sticks.

Yes, I have both blood clementine & bloodlime seed. Let me check this morning & see if I have any flying dragon left out on the tree.

Do you know how frequently the blood clementine or lime comes true from seed?

That I can't answer, but mine did. Most all citrus "hybrids" come true, there are only a few citrus that don't come true.

I'd probably like to get some seeds. Is the fast growing citrus still available?

Okay. I'd like to purchase some of your blood citrus and trifoliata. I'll PM you in a bit.
