Cold Hardy Citrus / US-802 citrumelo
« on: August 10, 2023, 12:57:25 PM »
Citrus grandis 'Siamese' X Poncirus trifoliata 'Gotha Road' https://citrusvariety.ucr.edu/crc4266

When used as a rootstock it makes a vigorous tree and extremely large tree. I see that it's crossed with Siamese pummelo, which could either be the acidless version or the other siamese pomelo, as they have two accessions of siamese pomelo. It would be interesting to use this in crosses instead of dunstan since it may carry acidless in the gene pool if it uses the siamese acidless pomelo 🤔

Cold Hardy Citrus / Ichang Papeda from seed?
« on: May 16, 2023, 11:01:06 AM »
OK. Ichang papeda is very heterogenous I've heard. I've also heard that even self pollinating it with itself will not be true to type and may show different characteristics like hardiness, fruit size, dry pith vs juicy pith, and leaf petiole size. Specifically with ichang papeda I've seen 2 fruit types: one with dry pith and kind of tear drop shaped, and one which is more globose and is very juicy yet have the same leaf petiole size (double leaf). Also sometimes the leaves may be stiff and pointing up to the sky, while other specimens show even a kind of weeping style, with leaves kind of hanging.

So how does ichang papeda in its natural range even manage to maintain prevalence?

Cold Hardy Citrus / Giant honghe papeda
« on: February 10, 2023, 11:39:11 AM »
Was doing some research a few days ago and came across this album of citrus hongheensis in Yunnan. HUGE trees I've never seen a citrus of that size before. More closely related to kumquats than ichang papeda. Petioles are almost double the size of the leaf.

There is currently an ongoing hard freeze happening now and probably the weekend. I would like to hear any data of frost hardiness of any citrus varieties following the event. It's going to get doen to 10 degrees F here, so I'll record my data and not protect anything.
