Do you have a source? Because Prague is famously hard to get. I think a few years ago most (if not all) of Stan's supply was wiped out in that bad winter, which took a big hit on the supply of prague PERIOD.

I've found it notoriously difficult to graft / root, as well.

Citrus General Discussion / Chlorosis or something else?
« on: October 26, 2023, 02:19:35 PM »
Father in law has a lemon variant that he's brought Inside to overwinter, but it is going through what appears to be some form of nutrient deficiency or bacterial / viral infection. It looks a bit different fr the normal types of chlorosis I've seen before - anyone have thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Where in zone 7 are you?

North Alabama, up by Madison/Huntsville area. Zone 7b. Last winter it got down to -17f (counting windchill) one night.

Nice! I've never once had a single poncirus bloom for me here in zone 7. : (

Cold Hardy Citrus / Rough lemon cold hardiness?
« on: June 05, 2023, 03:12:51 PM »
Anyone know the zone hardiness of Rough Lemon offhand? I just realized I have no clue, and a cursory google search has been very unhelpful.

Figured I'd ask the pros.

Without sounding too ignorant, these are grown as perennials?

Yup, you can overwinter peppers and grow em perennially.

I had a 7 year old habanero bush. That's pretty old for a pepperafaik. They do fall victim to their own growth as their stems get woody, though.

I think Matt’s Peppers has some. You can Google him as I forget his username on here.
Also Small Island Seed Co. I believe has Rombodium. If neither of them do you can always hop onto the Pepper Lovers discord and ask

I sold out, but will have more this fall.  I do have some C.caatingae at the moment.

I will close up shop for the summer, but will keep things up to date and in stock until I get too busy with this year's crop.

Heya, what website? [edit: nm, found it!]
Question: you have any sweet / heatless varieties? Once upon a time I grew reapers, bhuts and hybrids, even kept them Perennial with stems thicker than quarters...but now I have heartburn like you wouldn't believe, and can only really deal with heatless peppers (while trying to experiment with cold Hardy varieties for breeding into zone 7)
(and thanks, all, so great for Hardy pepper seed sources!)

WTB cold hardy pepper seeds of Cap. Flexuosum / cap. Tovarii. Anyone have any sources?

Jim, how thick were your cuttings? Given that it is july here, I may try.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Rooting Prague chimera cuttings
« on: July 15, 2022, 09:01:43 AM »
Does anyone have any successful experience rooting Prague chimera cuttings?

I've tried a variety of strategies - I don't want to graft it onto poncirus because I'd like these new plants to be on their own roots to test cold hardiness. So far, I've been unsuccessful.

Hey all, as title says, wondering if anyone knows of any mulberry varieties that would do well in zone 7(b) here in the south, that are also resistant or (better yet!) immune to popcorn disease. It's a nasty fungus that has been decimating a lot of plants in neighboring areas, so I wanted to see if there were any ways to straight-up avoid.

You sure they didn't send you finger lime seeds?

 God I wish there were more folks involved in cultivating and selling the edible bulbiferas. It's an extraordinary producer and I'd love to get my hands on some.

Citrus General Discussion / Pathogen ID?

Got this on some of my citrangequats and other trifoliate hybrids. Any ID?

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Any sources for oni Yuzu / shishi Yuzu?
« on: December 24, 2021, 01:39:32 AM »
I’ve got several standard Yuzu varieties, but the more I hear about shishi Yuzu, the more interested I become in seeing if I can make it work here in zone 7b.

Lazz has precipitous poncirus. I believe Georgia grown citrus has high-quality poncirus rootstock.

What size you looking for, and where you need them shipped?  Ton of sources out there, but maybe I can help.

I’ve always been one to root / grow any seeds / crowns etc. on plants I purchase. I recently came across the PunkGlow pineapple, and noticed they have a procedure of cutting off most of the crown (ostensibly for “green” purposes, but almost certainly to disincentivize growing it from the crown). I was wondering if anyone had tried it, or even if inhibits growth significantly. Etc.

Sounds to me like I should try rooting a water shoot from this next year, then…perhaps air graft for roots and then try that as it’s own plant?

« on: November 05, 2021, 11:12:11 PM »
So a poncirus that doesn’t taste terrible? Or just tastes less-terrible? Is there a source for this? I’d love to compare to the normal poncirus and precocious poncirus I have.

I keep seeing mention of “poncirus+” - what is this? I’ve got a gazillion standard poncirus, as well as lucky enough to have been able to get an early fruiting poncirus from Laaz. But I’m clueless about poncirus+.

My home is *filled* with finger limes in pots (red and green), so if there’s a potential way to extend their range and actually get them outside here in 7b, I’d love to hear it.

The advantage of this method would be that someone in zone 7 or 8 might be willing to grow out the citandarin x Kishu seedlings in hopes of getting hardier mandarin-like fruit.  It could happen. 

Oooh! Oooh! Me! Pick me!

I'm currently trialling pretty much every variety of citrus that's reputed to be cold-hardy. Anyone needs a clay-soil, zone 7(b) test out here in north alabama across a few separate microclimates I prepare, just let me know :D

Yeah mine is definitely grafted as well. Graft pics + the sole fruit.

Tropical Vegetables and Other Edibles / Re: Storing yam bulbils
« on: November 04, 2021, 03:04:03 AM »
I'm storing 4 large ones from a late harvest.

My advice? use "fill" paper that goes in gift bags (similar consistency to the super cheap, nearly-abrasive single-ply toilet paper, and gently place it in a crumple of that paper, in a brown paper bag, with the open side completely open, still. I got my prior Dioscorea bubils to go 8 months w/o sprouting because of that (at room temperatures, too).
