Cold Hardy Citrus / Procimequat x poncirus
« on: November 05, 2022, 10:42:46 AM »
Looking through the meiwa x flying dragon thread from a few years ago it seems some people here bought seed from this cross on eBay.  Any updates on the seedlings? 

What was amazing is that the breeder claims the skin of this hybrid is palatable like kumquat, and even likes to eat them as much as meiwa!  This seems unheard of for a poncirus F1.  Is there some magic in the parentage of procimequt, maybe triploidy that has promoted this, perhaps something from the hindsii genetics?  Maybe just a lucky outlier.  As someone wanting to breed hardy kumquat hybrids, itís very inspiring to know it has already been done for zone 7.  Assuming of course that the seller isnít being misleading.  Is procimequat available anywhere? 

Cold Hardy Citrus / Name of citrumelo from chillypalmtree

Which cultivar is this ?

I planted one of these where I used to live probably 8 years ago or more, in zone 7 Virginia.  It is in terrible soil and never fertilized, watered or pruned.  But it still survives and is close to 10 feet tall.  I wish I couldíve seen it thrive in that time but I moved and it got no attention. 

Cold Hardy Citrus / Poncirus+ x kumquat

You all have gotten me excited about the possibility of breeding new cold hardy citrus.  It seems like P+ can potentially bring a new generation of edible hardy hybrids.  I live in zone 7 and I like citrus with edible peels like kumquat.  P+ has no resin in the flesh, but does it have wax in the peel?  What other citrus cultivars would be good to contribute to such a goal ?

Looking for improved Feijoa, especially early ripening or cold hardy.  Looking to do a hedge or two.  Thanks!

Has anyone collected and grown out seedlings of spineless chaya?
