Last year I graftet Satsuma miagawa on my ols lemon tree only to try what happens and for colourmix yellow orange. This year the graft showed some flowers and four fruitlets.
Up to now the fruitlets on the lemon are bigger than the fruitlets on mother satsuma miagawa.
Comparison of taste only will be possible in October/November. Optical it seems the mandarins on the lemon are ripening earlier  :), the plant behind the lemon is the satsuma mother plant with smaller and greener fruitlets.

Accomplished !!! 😅, got scions of clemyuz 2-2 from a citrusfriend in my region and the scions are doing well though not so long since grafting 😄

Now without any restriction from my side, 3 nice fruitlets left

Nice trees, good overwintering. What deepest temperature have your kumquats to support in the greenhouse ?

thanks Mikkel and Poncirusguy, I have already Changsha, but still no fruits and currently I try to test all citrusvarieties which are claimed lower than 10F, and (relative) good fruit, if they will survive with minimal protection in my ground.
Lowseed Changsha I don' t know, not sure if this variety already exists in Europe.

No other menbers growing clemyuz 2-2 ??   :-\

The Chimera Prague lost the small fruit after a few weeks.

Two new plants for winterhardytest are new in ground.
First a multigraft on Flying Dragon with Morton Citrange, Dunstan and 5* Citrumelo.
Bloomsweet and Keraji are new grafts on the Flying Dragon.

Following picture is Ichangquat on Poncirus

Thank you for your informations SoCal and Peep, though overall they seem not so encouraging for planting in zone 7.
My question was based while fetting some scions next weekand in one blog it was mentioned that possibly it is hardy down to 5 F. So I will graft it, then make a copy and test one in the ground - after the german saying " practical trying goes over theoretical studying".

Don' t know if you are also interested in autumn ripening satsumas, but I can recommend for example satsuma myagawa, it is ripe in southern Germany in October and is really good. Tasty and good balance sugar and acid.

thank you, yes I' m also excited if the plant will keep a fruit.
If so I will show a picture  ;).
Regards Frank

Chimera Prague, first flower after 2  years in ground  :D

Today during the visit of my daughter the curiosity was to great, so I had to harvest the last fruit. The taste we found very pleasant and sufficent juicy and sweet. Still very light bitterness. Next year I try to wait still a little bit longer  ;) to see if taste still changes. But overall Pomelo in Germany is great  8).
Regards Frank

thank yo guys for your informations, I'm really curious to taste the fruits, already souch heard about the tasty fruits.
@ Hardyvermont, sounds good your advice, will wait still a month and then thin out   :D
regards Frank

my luxury problem is, that my pomelos have too much fruit set and in contrary to my satsuma up to now they don' t want to kick off some fruits.
Now my question is still to wait until they throw the too much fruit themselve or better already now thin out the too much fruit by myself.
Valentine bears the first year and bloomsweet the 2nd year.
Thanks for your experience.

today 14 months after grafting my Dunstan was left free in ground. Second chance for Dunstan. But now on Poncirus, the one I lost in winter 20/21 was on Citrumelo Broza (no worthful rootstock, because it died also after the winter).

Hi, how are your citrus coming back, any interesting updates ?
Regards Frank

I suppose you are right. But the rootstock FA5 was a recommendation for earth with higher ph and it was assured that FA5 is nearly as hardy as Poncirus, so I thought to try it. And I even was not disappointed in Winter 2020/2021 when the young plant supported -15 C with passive protection. Meanwhile I also have Morton grafted on a Poncirus in ground and a flying dragon in ground, so I can compare the next winters and seasons. Perhaps the effevt of deep dormancy is perhaps an additional advantage of poncirus.

thank you for the link, looks very interesting  :D

chimera Prag is slow and confuse growing but now it presents the first flower bud of all my in ground citrus 😅.

Morton Citrange on FA5 is good growing and further recovering of winter damage 2020/2021. This winter no damage.

Just a short update
first picture, small 2020 planted Thomasville in winter shadowy place now starts growing, never damaged, but slowgrowing on Poncirus and in this winter shadowy place.

new plantation in April 2022, right an Orange slava micurina, in the middle a bigraft of Bloomsweet and Staraji 55 on Poncirus and left a Duncangrapefruit on Poncirus.

Rest of all planted citrus varieties of 2020, now good growing.

Thanks Brian and Millet, good to know not to get a dry fruit by hanging too long, so I still let the sun do their work. Nevertheless it s hard to let it hang, but I' m really curious to fully ripe flavour ? I will report then 😅

My last of 3 Chandlerfruits looks nice, but I still want to let it ripe a few days more to get maximum taste. Do you know if there is a risk that the fruit gets dry if the fruit hangs too long ?

Hello Daniel, i think it is a good thing to collect citrus. But as tge others said at the moment it will be difficult to share varieties. I also strictly deny this barbaric war where a lot of ukrainian people and also russian soldiers have to die for nothing and the ukrainian cities get destroyed for nothing.
But for your problem perhaps you could try to get citrus varieties from Crimea ? Best regards Frank
