Ripening time of hardy citrus
« on: September 08, 2022, 06:42:47 AM »
What is the earliest ripening time of cold hardy non trifolate citrus? I am in zone 7a.

My Owari and Kimbrough satsumas and Ichang lemons ripen in late November through December. My first freeze is usually around Halloween. I have to cover all fruiting trees by Halloween to preserve fruit. I have a Saint Anne satsuma but not fruited yet; it may ripen earlier.

Has anyone heard of the Hashimoto citrus tree?

Yes it's an early ripening Satsuma variety. I don't have it yet, but plan to add it to my collection.
Fruit quality of this satsuma is good, but I hear this variety can be a slow growing plant. Supposedly it's a bit more cold hardy than the average satsuma.
