Fruits PoncirusPlus grafted on FD are almost ripe, but  still attached to the branches.

Ilya how does Poncirus+ fruit size compare to other Poncirus fruits you have? Mine are markedly smaller. But, perhaps due to low seed count?

Citradia, your poncirus tree is quite large to protect during your area's winters.

For me there is not much difference.



Three fruits of PoncirusPlus and two of SwampLemon:

Thanks Ilya, I'll check the seed count on mine in a few weeks.

Millet, my poncirus and flying dragon trees donít get any protection in winter. Neither do my Dunstan or 80-5. This past winter was mild and I didnít protect citradia or Thomasville and citradia only lost a few feet of last yearís growth and Thomasville cut in half. I didnít protect my 15 foot tall Changsha on own roots and it died down to three feet tall, but now growing back hard to five feet. They wouldnít have been damaged at all if I didnít get down to 14 degrees in mid March after a prolonged warming in February.
