F2 Citrus glauca
« on: February 16, 2022, 09:21:47 PM »
Got seeds early this year and decided to germinate them. All showing different characteristics so definitely not pure glauca. Will see how they fare this upcoming winter.

Citrus glauca (previously called Eremocitrus glauca) does hybridise easily with other species.
Over 25 years ago I managed to germinate only one seed from several sent to me from Riverside.
It soon became clear this was a hybrid which I jokingly called 'Eremowhat?'.
This plant is still a vigourous potted tree about 8 feet tall and fruits each year.
You can read a rather old web-page about it at http://www.homecitrusgrowers.co.uk/australiannativecitrus/eremowhat.html

To be honest I can't remember whether they have seeds or not.
Although I had a look today, there aren't any fruits left - they all seem to fall together sometime in November.
I'll try and remember to check later in the year!

You sure they didn't send you finger lime seeds?

No, its citrus glauca. Check out the leaves, they have some serration to them and I don't recall finger limes having serration on the leaves. And the leaves are thin not as broad as finger lime.

If I add my 5 cents.... I also do not think it is glauca. glauca should have different leaves.
Yours look similar to my Blood Lime

They aren't pure glauca, they are open pollinated therefore is a F2 Citrus glauca.

You're right, I didn't read about the hybrid origin. But still the seedlings look very similar to my australasica seedlings.... If that means something I don't know... it's just an observation

The Eremolemon hybrid here still looks a lot like Citrus glauca.
https://citrusvariety.ucr.edu/citrus/eremolemon.html

The F2 Citrus glauca in the pics looks more like Microcitrus X Microcitrus, i.e. Citrus virgata ??
I guess glauca X australis or australasica is a possibility too ??

Close up on the leaves, they are definitely Citrus glauca seeds germinated but of course they arenít pure and are hybrids. Of course I donít know the parent because it could be anything. Different hybrids show different growth forms and other characteristics .

Wild, open-pollinated plants can be more diverse than we've come to expect from our experience with domesticated cultivars even if they're pure species-type.
