My Citrumelo is blooming
« on: March 05, 2020, 09:31:33 PM »
I noticed that my Citrumelo that I have had planted in the ground for 5 years is blooming today. I hope it makes some fruit. It's about 12 to 13 feet tall. I don't really care if they are edible or not. I just want to see fruit on the tree. :.)  I am zone 8 on the Arkansas/Louisiana Stateline.

Typically it will bear a few fruit this first year. They will not be edible as the poncirus will shine through. Next year should be a better crop.....still not a tasty fruit.😁

I am just excited that I may have some fruit.  ;)  I have my fingers crossed that one of my Thomasville Citangequats will bloom this year. They are several years old but just transplanted from pots to ground last spring.
