Citrus > Cold Hardy Citrus

Citrangequat 19-15-7



--- Quote ---A more attractive tree than either Sinton or Thomasville. Fruit slightly larger than Thomasville, much larger than Sinton; darker orange rind color than Thomasville, not quite as dark as Sinton. As an ornamental, this one would be my choice over Sinton & Thomasville. None of the 3 are really edible but this one is nearest to edible in my opinion.

This is pretty good praise to me given Thomasville is mentioned as one of the best poncirus descendants.

Has anyone had experience with this? How is its flavor and hardiness?
I did a search but didn't see any comments.

I only can report to Thomasville. Thomasville has two big advantages, very good frosthardiness (by protection from wintersun) and very delicioud fruit, I tested my first one two weeks ago and I was surprised by the very good flavour, in my taste a mix of orange/pomelo/ grapefruit, no bitterness.
Only disadvantage is the late ripeness of the fruit, in March/April.

Is it similiar to this one?
It is Augusta Citrangequat at McClendons Yard


Interesting! Never saw. that one before.
There are 3 citrangequats at the UCR, not sure if Augusta is one of thm or. another. I intend to order budwood one day.
