Name of citrumelo from chillypalmtree
« on: November 03, 2022, 08:53:47 AM »
Which cultivar is this ?

http://www.chillypalmtree.com/CITRUMELO.html

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.

Thanks Pandan !  Itís a hardy one for sure, as it went through the polar vortex in 2014 I think it was.
