Citrus macrophylla

<< < (4/5) > >>

pagnr:
I got a few off type seedlings from my Macropyhlla seed grow outs. One is a bit more Pummelo like with broader leaves and bigger fruit but much the same.
One produced small Citron type fruit once or twice.
Another looks a lot like a West Indian/Key Lime with small foliage. It has flowered but not fruited.
Interesting that those seem to be throwbacks to possible ancestors ?

When I look at books showing the history of citrus fruits, they are often big ugly seedy things that look nothing like what we buy at stores today.  We are fortunate to have thousands of years of selective breeding behind us.

I found one of these in an abandoned grove a few years back. I suspected this was what it was. Thanks for the positive Id.

Update: 12/8/22

I picked most of the ripe fruits now. The largest fruit weighted 599 grams (1.3 lbs).

Now I have plenty of seeds for growing my rootstock to back all my varieties.
