Good day fellow fruit lovers! Joe Hewitt was so nice to open up his tropical fruit farm and give a wonderful tour recently. I wanted to share that video with everyone and give an update 🙂

I just happened to find a nice looking extra Burgundy in my collection if it doesn't work out with Bellamy.

Hello everyone. I just wanted to share fellow forum member MarktLee's video tour we filmed not too long ago. I was finally able to meet Mark in person and he was gracious enough to show me around. He is an awesome long time rare fruit collector and luckily he is willing to spread some diversity via knowledge, scions, trees and fruit.

Wow thanks Janet for posting this. Very much appreciated! Yes it's me  ;)

If anyone is interested.  Here is a tour of Bellamy Trees Nursery.

I posted a thread about Virginia Fruit Grower YouTube channel a few days ago.  ;D

Thanks for the detailed descriptions Caladri. There's not a lot of first hand impressions of these fruit out there.

Yes it was kind of the good 'ol days on the old forum. Way more activity and posts but at least there is this one and Citrus Growers V 2.0. Turns out that Greg is somewhat of a celebrity over there. I wasn't aware of the backyard hockey rink contest. Pretty cool!

As an update I was able to meet up with Greg and he was gracious enough to give a tour his citrus plantings in Vancouver, Canada. Here is a short video:

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.
