Looking for Citrus Pollen
« on: May 01, 2019, 02:25:06 AM »
Does anyone know of a source of disease-free citrus pollen?
I would like to experiment and create my own citrus hybrids with my calamondin tree. Ultimately, I want to get a hardy orange, Poncirus trifoliata, and hybridize it with either Yuzu or the harder to find Citrus ichangensis to make a hardy but better tasting orange that can exist in USDA zone 6 here in Connecticut.

P.S. I learned pollen transmits certain citrus diseases so I do not want to damage my little tree.
Thanks,
- Kelly F.
