Pavlovsky lemon
« on: March 14, 2018, 09:27:53 AM »
Howdy all,

Has anyone heard of or grown the Pavlovsky lemon?

It appears to be a lemon that was selected by residents of several central Russian cities over the course of two centuries specifically for growing in the home. Looks like it's offered by several eastern European nurseries.

Picture on that second link looks pretty doctored.  Could it be that the Russians are gas lighting these pages too?  :o

For what its worth, that second website is not Russian. It is Ukrainian.

I have growing Pavlovsky lemon in ground greenhouses. Flowering 2 times a year in spring and autumn. The variety is quite shadowy, the leaves are large. High quality fruits, sour, juicy, size 100-250 gr. Ripe fruits can hang on a tree for 4-6 months without loss of quality.

It is  a very old variety, there exist several clones differing in fruit quality and tolerance to in house conditions under very dim winter light in Pavlovo  (56 N).
Best regards,

It was a poor attempt to be humorous.  Sorry if I offended anyone.

Tee-hee, I guess I should've looked closer.  The funny thing is that I studied Russian in high school and didn't even pick up on it.

Do we have these lemons in the US anywhere? Maybe an old lady in New York whose grandmother carried the lemon seeds in the hem of her skirt grows it?

But seriously, it seems as though Pavlovsky would be an invaluable addition to domestic horticulture. No sunroom, grow lights, or south facing picture window needed.

Hi again all,

I read through the most recent USDA-APHIS regulations regarding importation of Citrus sp. seed to the US and it looks like it's still allowed from Europe, including the former CCCP countries.  There are a few paperwork and inspection requirements beyond merely dropping the seeds in the mail.

Does anyone know of a reputable source for seed of the Pavlovsky lemon?  I'm happy to pay the costs incurred, of course. I don't have any citrus material to exchange but I live in an extremely cold part of the US and I can offer W.C. and cultivated seed of many northern North American natives.

Thanks,   Steve H      You can email me directly at:   loneroc1 at gmail dot com.
