Ichang papeda fruiting season?
« on: November 21, 2020, 03:45:28 PM »
  My Ichang Papeda just started to flower recently in late fall. This the first time it flowers. I just wonder whether or not will it flowers through out the year.

  I grafted a small branch of Ichang Papeda on a young Poncirus seedling last fall. It surprised me with its flowers at an early age. The rootstock is not even 1.5 years old.

  Please share your experience about this papeda.

It would not be surprising if Ichang papeda was very precocious. It is one of the smaller growing species of citrus (when naturally growing on its own roots).

I have discussed the connection between the two in other threads. (smaller growing size = fruit earlier in lifespan)

I posted earlier this year about a seedling grown from ichangensis that froze down last winter and then sprouted out again this spring and made a flower. The flower made a small fruit that of course fell off when small.

Mine flower in spring and occasionally flower again later in the year. Depending on the variety, they can be ripe as early as October.

Not too long ago I read about a similarly precocious papeda seedling on another forum (it flowered 2 years or so!).

Does anyone know any lines sold stateside that have this trait? It seems like itd be good for that cold-hardy citrus project some other forum members are running.

My Dunstan, citradia, 80-5, Thomasville were more cold hardy than my ichangensis 2 year old seedlings last winter. Unfortunately, I donít have much faith in my specimens. Iím going to have to protect them like satsumas. Last winter wasnít even that cold.

It is quite normal that mature wood grafted on juvenile seedling flower early. Rootstock does not influence the degree of maturity of the bud.

My IP is vigourous, i use it as a rootstock, good root resistance, tolerates alkaline soils quite well.
I really doubt that is precocious.
