What to try in zone 8a-b

(1/7) > >>

Peasefamilyfarms:
Iím wanting to expand the orchard this year and have yuzu as well as a Thomasville at the top of my wish list . What is s everyoneís opinion on other cold hardy citrus worth trying?

drymifolia:
I've never tried the fruit, but sudachi comes highly recommended from the person that sent me cuttings. I have a few small own-root clones in pots (they rooted easily), and I plan to plant a couple out this spring. I got them from someone in the Willamette Valley who says it does well for him there. Not sure where you are in OR, though, since other zone 8 areas in the state might not get as much heat in the summer.

Peasefamilyfarms:
We are in the northern end of the valley so temperature isnít usually an issue. Have you got fruit off of your sudachi?

drymifolia:
No, I've never tried the fruit. I rooted mine one year ago and they are just 4-inch-tall clones in 1 gal pots. But the person I got them from a bit south of you said his is very productive.

Peasefamilyfarms:
I may have to give that one a try. Do you grow any other citrus?
