FD would be ideally tissue culture propagated as with seeds there are variations and unwanted cross pollination especially with those with many citrus plants.

About 50 percent of the seeds from Flying Dragon are true to type..  Fortunately, it is quite easy to tell which Flying Dragon seedlings are the true variety.

I pm'd you kulasa! Also, millet, I read about flying dragon seeds and I stumbled upon some information that getting these seeds to sprout. It stated that they are more successful once cold stratified. Is that true? Or are you able to just pop them in the ground and watch them grow with the same results?

According to my experiences PT and FD seeds have not to be stratified before sawing.
My FD plants stands alone  - so when flowering 100% sure no cross pollination will be able to occur. Seedlings of them show this also - nearly show habitus as FD shows. Of course there are few (estimated less than 5%)  which are growing like a normal Poncirus. But this is a normal effect.

Flying Dragon seed can be shown right of the fruit, they do not need to be stratified.

Right now is when I plant FD seed. Lets them get up and get a start before they sleep for the winter. I an in zone 9. When they awake they have a good root system and take off and get a full summers growth. I do not stratify and as Millet said it is not needed.

Do you leave them out the whole winter even when they are tiny bit?

Yes. If we have a severe freeze, which we dont usually have I throw a blanket over the seed bed and they do fine. Its hard to kill poncirus.

Thank you, I have never left my P trifoliate seedlings outside during the winter, I always haul them inside haha.  Maybe I will leave them out this time.
