Spaneet citrange?
« on: May 01, 2020, 08:09:17 PM »
Is anyone familiar with Spaneet citrange? The descriptions given are:
1. Deep orange rind color
2. Nearly seedless
3. Very juicy
4. Furrowed at pistol end
5. Size small - similar to Rusk
6. Very vigorous and productive
7. Cold hardy
Sounds very interesting, especially in regards to color, juiciness, vigor and productivity.
French translations tend to use the word "rustique" (rustic) to convey "hardiness".

Apparently it's grouped with citranges.

Citrus Pages has this entry about it:
"The fruit of Spaneet is similar to Willits with is rough and deeply corrugated surface. Ripe fruit have a deep reddish orange rind colour like Rusk. Spaneet has very few seeds and is vigorous and productive."

The majority of the leaves in the picture appear to be normal monofoliate, although there appear to be signs on a few of the leaves that it's a trifoliate hybrid.
