Citrus General Discussion / Sukari orange (sweet Egyptian orange)
« on: February 24, 2022, 08:03:31 AM »
Stopped over at my favorite nursery and my nurseryman said he had only one of these Sukari oranges trees for sale. I bought it as I like the odd ball citrus and couldnt find almost any info on it.

Can anyone tell me more about this Sukari orange?

I recently purchased some ugli fruit from the grocery store and am amazed how delicious these are. Possibly my new favorite citrus! The inside is simialr to a pomelo with differentiating membranes. The ones I bought contained 10 or less seeds in each. I plan on growing them until I lose interest or need more space in the greenhouse.

 Is anyone growing these outdide of their native range? If so, how are the overall characteristics of shape, size, taste, and overall hardiness?

Anyone have any growing experience with the Japanese raisin tree? Since I cannot find a live plant I planned on ordering seeds online and germinating them myself. Any advice would be great! I am in zone 8b

EDIT: I meant to move this to the tropical section as this is frost tender
