Soon To Be Released By The USDA
« on: August 19, 2018, 08:37:06 PM »
Gnarlyglo  is in the USDA pipeline, and is soon to be released. It is the very first scion for use as a fresh fruit containing Poncirus in its pedigree.

That may be true, but if you look at several of the selections this was bred from, they are actually fairly cold hardy.
FF-6-15-150 for example has as much cold hardiness as Satsuma mandarin.

I do not know anything of FF-6-15-150 but poncirus hybrid US119 that is in its pedigree is not more hardy than navel oranges.
Best regards,

I'm not certain, but isn't FF-6-15-150 the pre released research name of Gnarlyglo?

USDA 6-15-150 is a hybrid of Lee Mandarin and Orlando Tangelo.
That makes it a (Clementine x (Dancy x Duncan Grapefruit)) x (Dancy x Duncan Grapefruit) cross.
Fruits are the size of a medium mandarin, but with an orange-like exterior texture
Flavor is described as flavorful, lovely subtle flavor, tangy undertones, very juicy, difficult to section, seedy
was said to be the most cold tolerant mandarin to come out of the USDA citrus breeding program in Florida, on par with Satsuma mandarins


poncirus hybrid US119 that is in its pedigree is not more hardy than navel oranges.
supposedly hardy to 10F, young trees injured in low 20s

Survival reports on various winter loss threads indicates that US119 is only marginally less hardy than a citrange.

It probably depends on climate, but in the a past I lost US119 two times when Navelina orange survived.
 It is maturing  late and is  susceptible  to rather  moderate frosts in December.
