How's that coming along?

Sylvain:
It goes well but it takes years.
I started to cross with citrus of Australia that work well and now I use usual citrus it will need several years to see the result...

mikkel:
Sylvain, are the hybrids with the Australians also early flowering?

Malcolm Smith told me that the precocious trait was diluted very quickly in their breeding program. But that was with hybrids of common citrus.

Sylvain:
First, I don't see that Citrus wakonai  is so early flowering. They must grow them in very good conditions like in a phytotron. I grow my citrus in "usual conditions" in my area. And Citrus wakonai takes at least tow years to flower, not less than one year as said.
It is the same for hybrids, more than 2 years, often 4 or 5 years.
However, compared to most of citrus ( 4 to 15 years for flowering) it can be considered as early flowering.
