Looking to expand citrus collection
« on: September 10, 2020, 11:40:49 AM »
Well not my citrus collection, a friend who asked me to help choose 5 varieties.

He sent me a list of what he currently has:

Kishu
Shasta gold
Gold nugget
Leexnova
Bearss lime
Washington navel
Cara cara
Shiranui
Clemenules
Boukhabza
Midknight
Ortanique
Lane late navel
Xie shan
Okitsu wase

Looking for a lemon to use in marinating meat or to be paired with food. Bearss lime is a beast but lemons are more year round. The obvious choices are improved meyer lemon, Lisbon, and eureka. Not sure if meyer lemon would work as some describe it as sweet.

For the rest of the choices mandarin and their hybrids as well as oranges. Looking for flavor, uniqueness, and productivity. Secondary desirable characteristics include extended harvest season and season “non-peak” citrus season (may-october).

Thanks.
