TaiTri vs 5* deciduousness and hardiness
« on: December 13, 2019, 03:47:19 PM »
Is anyone familiar with both TiaTri citrandarin and 5* citrumelo in respect to their winter hardiness? The first indications I see are that TaiTri shows a bit of deciduousness while I see none in the 5* at this point.  Some of my segentrages show appreciable deciduous behavior, others don't. TaiTri also made less late growth. Which has shown better cold resistance?

I do not have Taitri, but 5star was able to flower after the winters when he lost his leaves due to the wind and cold.
Best regards,

By spring I should have some answers in regards to the cold hardiness of both 5* and TaiTri. Shorter winters would be desirable!
