Wanted: Citrus reticulata 'Jiouyuezao'
« on: November 17, 2018, 03:05:55 PM »
Hi, I would love to buy seeds or plants of the Citrus reticulata variety named Jiouyuezao.
The internet says it is long cultivated in China and hardy to about 13 C (8,6 F).
Thanks in advance

This chinese seller has some similiar hardy varieties from China. I asked for Jiouyuezao some years ago but back then they don`t had it. Maybe now?

They offer
Citrus reticulata (Tuanianiju)
Citrus reticulata (Bendizao)
Citrus reticulata (Xingjin)
Citrus reticulata (Zaojin)

Very Interesting, from what I found online Tuanianiju, Bendizao and Xingjin should be hardy until -12 C (10,4 F).
How hardy is Zaojin?
I can not find any Citrus reticulata varieties on this chinese site. How did you write them? In chinese? Or do they understand english?

Jiouyuezao (September Early)九月早 is a chance seedling of the Citrus reticulata Bendizao obtained in 1960.
Trees are hardy, surviving temperatures as low as -13.4 degrees C in 1991.Fruits mature in late September-early October, weigh 48.6 g on averrage.
