blood lime x yuzu

(1/1)

vnomonee:
I think I might have made a hybrid. The leaves have a yuzu scent.

Possible blood lime x yuzu seedling


Blood lime seedling without intentional crossing


But this one is also a blood lime seedling without intentional crossing

alexmed95:
So you have made an intentional crossing or was it also a natural hybrid where you discovered a potential cross by planting the seeds?

It's an interesting mix for sure! Please keep us updated.

citrange:
Blood Lime itself is already a complex hybrid and seedlings are very variable even without deliberate crossing.

vnomonee:
the yuzu pollen to the blood lime flower was deliberate, the other off-type seedlings were from fruit I did nothing to (which I understand the blood lime is a hybrid itself which produces offtypes) the only other reason (besides the intentional pollinating) I think it might be a hybrid with the yuzu are the petioles and the yuzu/mandarin scent of the leaves. will definitely keep an eye on it, so will have a better idea when it is larger
