No variegation on my Prague, leaves stay green like this up to the spring.


Best regards,

> The satsuma tissue is killed earlier than the Pt-tissue in the leave, I suppose.
The tissue is not killed and will regreen in spring.
And we think that the parts that change its color are PT parts. It gets the same color than the PT and exactly at the same time.

Poncirus trifoliata leaves have similar autumn induced coloration :

Some leaves on mine show it too. Interestingly enough, a graft that I made this year does not show it on any of its leaves.


Btw. how is your crop looking this year, Sylvain?

 I can ask the citrus growers from university of Prague if they still have some plants. They dig out lots of old subtropical trees, old citrus trees are ok, but radically pruned.

It would certainly be interesting to see what gems they still have hidden somewhere.

Snek,
> I've seen some of it in very old photos (50's or 60's). And it looked very convincing. E.g. orange, sometimes with trifoliate leaves.
If you know an equivalent chimera with orange please immediately take cuttings ( and send me some ;-) ).
Sorry, you probably meant Sláva Mičurina, a chimera of PT and navel orange. I have it but I completely forgot. I found it to day, bearing an unripe fruit.  :)

Slava Michurinu is pretty hardy, one year grafted plant kept some of its leaves after -9C.
The fruits look like that of the typical navel, but flavedo and  albedo have some very strange additional odor component.
In early December they are rather sour, sugars are of 9° Brix , taste is something between orange and lemon.
Best regards,
                       Ilya
