Citrus daoxianensis (Daoxian wild mandarin)

(1/3) > >>

Peep:
I like citrus fruits that have a rough or corrugated skin. I noticed this daoxianensis mandarin has very rough skin, but I can't find much about it online.

Does anyone have this cultivar?

This might be it, but the fruit in the picture has a very smooth skin so I'm quite unsure if it's the same cultivar https://myplantbox.de/en/different-citrus-type/52-daoxian-wild.html

This is where I found it:

Botanical Monographs. Jardín Botánico de la Universitat de Valčncia
Volume 2: Citrus





It's hard to see in this low resolution, but I have the print version, which is higher quality, and there you can see that each fruit on the tree is quite rough and bumpy.



Jibro:
I have Daoxian Wild from Adavo grafted on Citrumelo for about 4 years. It has small fruits 2-3 cm, 10-15g, but they ripen late, When it flowered at the end of April, the fruits were still green in December, I picked them in March fully colored.
The skin is not as bumpy as in your picture, the taste is different from normal mandarins, not too sour as I would expect from a wild mandarin and quite good.

Interesting, maybe the bumpy skin only happens in a warm climate? Maybe I will try to email the University and ask them about this rough / smooth skin variation.

I had not read much about this mandarin, but it seems strange to me that they have given it a scientific name if in reality it is only a wild regional variation... in citrus I see that investors grow a mandarin in the yard and they already name it as a new species 🤦, but well, their tricks to feel important.  Here is the investment of these mandarins and others that are in the region... here are complementary images showing those harvested for the study.

Peep, I have a mandarin that has the bumpiest skin I have seen, it is called Gold Nugget. My tree is large, has lots of seedless fruits. This year it is my best tasting citrus fruit for me. I grow many varieties and I can tell you there is no other fruit that has more bumpy skin than this one that is editable. The other fruits that also have some bumpy skin is the Pomderosa lemon and bizzarria.

Her's some Gold Nugget from my tree.
