bussone, to answer your question "How does the flavor compare to a sour orange?"

I can eat most lemons and sour orange out of hand, and it doesn't taste so bad I need to wash out my mouth. Even the Flying Dragon fruits I can eat freshly picked and drink the juice. But the Citrondarin is very bad, hard to drink or lick any juice from the fruit or to take a bite of the flesh, terrible.

Millet,

1. I grew the Citrondarin since it seemed like a good cold hardy one but the fruit is terrible. I just like to grow all the rare or hard to find variety.
2. Yes, I remembered the same thing about the Meiwa fruits. But the scionwood I grafted from UCR a year ago has these large round fruits, but doesn't taste sweet like i remembered it to be. I do have two purchased trees (small ones) of the Meiwa and when they had a few fruits it seemed to be sweeter but I didn't have the Nagami or Nordmann fruits to compare at the same time.

Your branch looks good, let it fruit so you can taste it before you remove the branch.
I see you have Meiwa, same here, my graft had some nice large fruits this year (1 year old graft) and tastes good. But it doesn't taste that much sweeter than the nagami, so I'm grafting my trees with the seedless nagami (Nordmann).

Here's my one fruit in 2 years. I misspelled the Citrondarin on the tape label in these photos.

Nop, the only nice thing about Citrondarin is that is has neat leaves. Other than that, nothing to brag about, top work it with anything else. My graft is 2 years old and only 18" long branch.

I prune the tree every year, doesn't help, it needs to be hand pollinated for many fruits. For now, I have grafted many other named varieties and they grow fast and vigorous on this large rootstock tree. My yellow birula graft from last year is over 10 ft tall now with many branches. I'm grafting Brad's Dr. White on this tree now.

Orkine, yes, that was my guess, but need to see the whole tree.

Thanks for this article. Yes, my variety could be the Annona macrocarpa. The person who gave me the plant said it was from his father's old tree that has good tasting fruits. He gave me the tree in a small pot in 1990s. My fruits do have the finger print pattern and the fruits do get from 1-2lbs. I should try to take some photos of the flowers and hand pollinate them this year to taste the fruits again.

Maybe I have a rare/scare cherimoya in my backyard and didn't even notice for 30 years.

Can you take a photo of the entire tree, then it might give more info on the grafted side.

Ok, I will ask again if anyone can help me ID this cherimoya tree and fruit. This is my oldest tree, got a small plant from a worker 25 yrs ago. The tree is super vigorous, has the largest leaves of any annona I have growing. I only found one photo of the fruit from 15 yrs ago. This tree requires hand pollination and I don't pollinate it so not much if any fruits grow on this tree. I'm using it as a strong rootstock tree to graft other varieties.

Here's the only fruit photo I have, and some photos of the leaves and branches.

Ok, thanks for everyone's feedback.

I will call this one Mao-AP since I got the scionwood from this person who has the trees and fruits are from his large tree.

Hard to differentiate the grafted branch. You should be able to tell which large branch has the fruits. The rootstock will probably not have any good fruits.

The Shine fruit tasted the same as the ones from the Asian market that I paid $39 a year ago.

The Red pomelo was a different story. Don't buy the one for 2 in a box for $7.99, no taste at all. Just a waste of money on that one. But the Ruby Honey is pretty good tasting, better than any Honey pomelo I purchased here in the local Asian market for about the same price. I will make a post on the red flesh pomelo.

Here's some photos of the fruits:

Nop, this is what I see when I go to their website now. I paid the amount shown ($11), got it tonight.

Same size package as the $29 fruits I paid last year.

The taste of most of the atemoya and cherimoya I have tasted were very sweet and good so I couldn't detect any major differences. I ate the El Bumpo, Gefner, AF, Arka Sahan, Pierce, Dr White, but not at the same time. I don't get any fruits on my trees yet, so the fruits are from others trees.

I looked at some of the Gefner photos people posted and my fruit almost looks just like it.

I bought the Dr. White fruits from Brad and it looks different from the fruits I ate and grafted on my tree a few years ago.

Can you look at my fruit photos (got fruits from a friend) and let me know what variety it is. The person who has the trees does not know the name, just said it was an Atemoya with good size fruits which tastes good.

Yes, Marta is a really good source, but she sells out even faster than Fruitwood. Great person to buy mulberries and loquats. Super fresh cuttings that are healthy.

71
Fruitwood nursery is good, they have healthy material, but I'm not sure how mature a tree the cuttings come from.

I like to order some cuttings, PM sent.

73
I didn't notice any difference with the blood orange grafts, they will hold fruit in 2 years like my other varieties. I just don't get the blood color on my citrus here in my location.

74
I tasted the first fruit of the Citrondarin (VI 396 ) on my grafted branch, and I can tell you it does tastes terrible.
You really can't eat this fruit out of hand, worse tasting citrus I have eaten.


75
My record number of fruits was my Oroblanco tree that had one large branch with 110 full size fruits. Just before it turned color (yellow), the entire branch (2" diameter) broke off the tree so I ended up graft 22 different varieties on that tree now. Melogold tastes better to me.
