Citrus General Discussion / Re: Thornless Mexican Lime

That is correct, Mexican limes are very small. See the UCR datasheet, says 1" to 1-1/2" size fruits.

If you wanted larger limes you should have purchased a Bearss lime, they can get to 2" to 2-1/2".

I wish my local grocery stores had such a great selection of interesting citrus. I've seen Murcott tangerines for sale before; they are sold under the name Honey Tangerine. But, I've never seen yuzus, kishu mandarins, satsumas, or any type of pomelo other than Chandler for sale. You're lucky you live near a good, specialty grocery.

Also, Murcott is not a mandarin. It is technically a type of tangor and a very old variety originally propagated from a chance seedling that sprouted in the 1910s in Florida.

Hello! Do the Dasyblasta root or do you typically graft them onto something?
That's cool to see! Also the Kishu. I've been to our Chinatown part here in Antwerp, but never found anything besides normal lemons and limes. Maybe I should check again now at this time of the year.

They sell Yuzu juice here at 100 /L (in small bottles) and the dried zest at 1000 /Kg if I remember correctly. I also found some yuzu candy, Yuzu beer, and maybe something else but I might not remember. The candy was good, the beer not so much.
I have a Pitangatuba plant with relatively large fruit...
It has the unique quality of being freestone.
The seed rattles around loosely inside the ripe fruit when a walnut.
I dont have any grafted specimens yet but if you would like to try grafting it I could part with some scions.


Looks enticing! Thank you. I will just wait for now.
Citrus General Discussion / Thornless Mexican Lime

I bought what I thought was a thornless Mexican lime tree, but from my understanding, the fruit should be much bigger. I get plenty of fruit each year but they are all much smaller than I expected. Has this been mislabeled? This is a recent picture so the fruit has over-ripened. Almost all the limes are barely an inch in diameter.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Which is better, Rambutan or Longan?

After eating fresh lychees the last two weekends, I'm going to say rambutan > longan > lychee.
I couldnt send pics in the pm.  Pup is picked out but not dug up yet.  I need to send on Monday.

I'm at Tokyo Central in Torrance CA (3832 Sepulveda) and they seem to have two types of yuzu. Unsure if they're named varieties or just the result of two different growers selecting different seed-grown trees for cloning. Also, two types of pomelo and three types of mandarin for sale.

Library card (standard credit card dimensions) for scale

I have 3 white sapotes in the ground that are producing fruit.
Last year I was under 32F for over 5 hours and my trees were
ok. They did not fruit though. After the cold night they flushed new
leaves but not flowers? I am in Florida though and your dewpoint is
different. I would trust someone in your area more
