Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Dr. Robert Dunstan
« on: February 27, 2022, 02:05:51 AM »
I just noticed your location Boris. I hope you are doing okay over there considering what's happening right now. Prayers out to all over there.

Many years ago I sent a variety of seeds to my friend Aleksey who lived in Kiev. He planted many of those seeds including my Lemanadarin in the Nikitsky Botanical Garden. The first to start fruiting was changsha that as it matured over the years became less seedy and was reported to produce very delicious store quality tasting fruit. Next were Ventura Lemandarin, Calamandarin, Taiwanica and Clem-Yuz 2-2. A couple years ago the Lemandarin was featured in local the news but was mistakenly called a "grapefruit" by the employee of botanical garden that was never engaged in citrus.
 
Here is that video:

I wonder since you are not too far from there if you have ever been there to see the plantings?

I have grown both Dunstan Honey Orange and Honey Changsha and they are totally different. I am not aware of any other Honey Changsha than the one that I selected and named from a few trees that I grew out locally here in Virginia Beach. In retrospect I wish I had named 'Honey Changsha' something else to lessen confusion with Robert Dunstan's Dunstan Honey Orange. In any case Honey Changsha is much more cold tolerant than DHO and still is growing in my 8a zone even after surviving a single event of at least -16C and many other below freezing temps.

Great share! I also was not aware that there were still ongoing program efforts to breed decent tasting hardy citrus.

I had the great pleasure meeting up with a friend of mine Luiz who has one of the most incredible and exclusive jaboticaba collections. Here you'll see many new plinia varieties just now being introduced to the US.

Excellent seller! Quality scions and fast shipping.  Thanks Kaz!

I also un-stake whenever possible right away so they can build up a nice trunk. Keeping them staked too long makes you end up with a weak trunked, floppy tree.
