Cold Hardy Citrus / Photo of Sancitchang #10 Roundleaf?
« on: February 26, 2023, 01:14:04 PM »
If anyone out there has a Sancitchang #10 specimen, would you mind sharing a photo of it's leaves?
I have googled and I have only found pictures of the fruit out there on the web, which is odd considering that the "rounded leaf" shape is supposed to be so particular.

Citrus General Discussion / Citrus in Airpots
« on: February 08, 2023, 09:11:36 AM »
I want to try an airpot(the plastic ones with the cone shaped holes on the sides.
I looked through the files and read some of the complaints about these, mainly how quickly they dry out.

So my question is, should citrus then be planted in these pots with regular soil as opposed to the normal 5-1-1 mix, to hold on to moisture longer?

I also saw a youtube video where a man puts a wicking fabric through the bottom of these pots and looped it like a horse shoe on the inside. He says that in the summer he places the airpots on a tray filled with just enough water so that the bottom of the air pot is not actually touching the water, but the wick is still able to draw up moisture on those really hot days. Do you think that would help?

Cold Hardy Citrus / Citrangequat(but Meiwa)
« on: January 30, 2023, 08:43:54 AM »
I wonder why, when citrus horticulturists were crossing citranges with kumquats, they always use nagami.
For instance "Thomasville"  and "Telfair" citrangequats are both crises of Nagami kumquat and Willitis citrange.
Sinton citrangequat is a cross of a Rusk citrange and a nagami kumquat.
Where are the meiwa crosses though? Doe anyone know if Swingle ever tried those crosses and it just didn't work out, or was the meiwa not available at that time?
