Red Rangpur
« on: January 09, 2018, 04:39:40 AM »
I just found it on the internet - a red-fruited mutation of Rangpur lime. Called Limão cravo sanguíneo in Brazil, where it apparently comes from. Unfortunately, it seems very rare.
I imagine it makes a great potted plant. Rangpurs are one of the best citrus to grow in pots.

How many cultivars can we list of Rangpur?  ::)

Citrus × limonia / Citrus reticulata x medica

I'm curious to know more.  8)

Thanks for info Laaz. The Rangpur limes we have tried here in Miami have all been excellent. Not aware of the cultivars but they have all been orange. Both trees that the fruits have come from are 30+ years old. Lives up to the strong rootstock comments we have heard.
