F2 Citrus glauca
« on: February 16, 2022, 09:21:47 PM »
Got seeds early this year and decided to germinate them. All showing different characteristics so definitely not pure glauca. Will see how they fare this upcoming winter.

Citrus glauca (previously called Eremocitrus glauca) does hybridise easily with other species.
Over 25 years ago I managed to germinate only one seed from several sent to me from Riverside.
It soon became clear this was a hybrid which I jokingly called 'Eremowhat?'.
This plant is still a vigourous potted tree about 8 feet tall and fruits each year.
You can read a rather old web-page about it at http://www.homecitrusgrowers.co.uk/australiannativecitrus/eremowhat.html

To be honest I can't remember whether they have seeds or not.
Although I had a look today, there aren't any fruits left - they all seem to fall together sometime in November.
I'll try and remember to check later in the year!
