Thank you very much!

Does anyone know the Karasu Papeda? There is not much to find about it.

Citrus General Discussion / SunDragon
« on: February 07, 2022, 03:54:31 PM »
Can anyone provide a link to more information about SunDragon?
It is a new variety developed for its HLB tolerance. As a starting point for further breeding, but also for use as a cultivar. The fruits are edible, but not everyone will like it, as it is supposed to have a different flavour than oranges.
SunDragon has Poncirus in its pedigree. 
It is said that a precocious Poncirus breeding line was used to breed it. I can't find any further information on this though.
Has anyone heard of it? Or even tried it already?

Citrus General Discussion / Giardini Hanbury Italy
« on: January 29, 2020, 03:47:43 PM »
Today I found an unnamed Citrandarin at Giardini Hanbury in Italy. I tested the first of 2 fruits and it is surprisingly good.
I wonder what it could be?
There was an discussion about Hanbury and a plant list somewhere. Does anyone can remember this thread or know where to find a plant list of Hanbury?

I know there several posts here and on other forums about average percentage of zygotic/nucellar offspring in different Poncirus hybrids. But I can`t find it now.
Anyone can help?

« on: October 21, 2019, 02:23:58 AM »
This might be a little late but I am interested in comparing different Poncirus fruits.

Citrus Buy, Sell, & Trade / Where to buy Poncirus rootstock in Europe
« on: October 01, 2019, 01:15:43 PM »
I am looking for a seller of Poncirus seedlings suitable for grafting.
I don`t have any left and need to wait for the next suitable seedlings in 2 years.

Does anyone have seeds of Asimina species other than Triloba? Budwood would also be an option.

Asimina incana
Asimina parviflora
Asimina pygmaea
Asimina angustifolia
Asimina obovata
Asimina parviflora

Thanks for helping!

Citrus General Discussion / What's wrong with my plant?
« on: May 29, 2019, 09:58:04 AM »
This is a supposed US852. All new growth is yellowish and is barely growing. What is it?

A few weeks ago I repotted it and fertilized it. No reaction.
I haven't found any pests except a few brown spots.

Cold Hardy Citrus / What happened to Citsumaquat ?
« on: November 20, 2018, 02:48:07 PM »
Are there any news about it? There are only old posts about it nothing new.


Citrus General Discussion / Could you help?
« on: October 07, 2018, 03:04:42 AM »
This is a 25 year old seedling. It never had flowers.
Is it a lemon (seedling) ?

Temperate Fruit Buy, Sell, & Trade / Maypop
« on: August 31, 2018, 03:54:05 PM »
Can anyone share seeds of Passiflora incarnata and or lutea? I am the most interested in plants from the northern part of its distribution.
Sow hundreds so far but non survived. They are more tricky than caerulea to me.
I want to try again...

What happened to the PVHM from BocaJoe? No new information is to be found..
Any gossip?

Cold Hardy Citrus / Poncirus Seedlings
« on: May 17, 2018, 03:51:54 PM »
These are Poncirus seedlings from Georgia. The young leaves look different from other seedlings I have. The leave tips are very pointed when young but get rounder when older. Other seedlings I have (mostly from Europe) have also round tips when still young.

I wonder if there is a best time for pollination on Citrus. I noticed that stigma isn`t always sticky over the day but I haven`t observed it to precisely to make a decision. Does it depend on day time or the age of the flower?

Citrus General Discussion / Hybrid Seedling Cotyledons
« on: February 15, 2018, 12:40:15 PM »
This winter I grow many different hybrid seedlings. I observe that Poncirus seedlings have their cotyledons not paired like in Citrus. The 2nd cotyledon is always  higher than the first one. Citrus and Microcitrus have them very close to each other in pairs.
Citrus x Poncirus seedlings are mixed. Some are paired but the most are like Poncirus.
Does someone observed the same?
I wonder if this trait is suitable to find more Citrus like hybrids among seedlings. For now it is impossible to tell if it is connected to poncirin free fruits but would be interesting to find out.

Temperate Fruit Discussion / Asimina parviflora
« on: February 03, 2018, 01:23:53 PM »
Does someone have experience with Asimina parviflora or other species beside A.triloba?
I am curious about it.

thank you!

Citrus General Discussion / What can it be?
« on: November 17, 2017, 12:52:20 PM »
What kind of disease could this be? They wilt from top to bottom but roots mostly survive. After some time some sprout again from roots.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Phelps Citrange
« on: July 03, 2017, 02:59:58 PM »
Anyone have seen a Phelps Citrange by himself? It is sometimes mentioned together with Sanford Citrange. Phelps Citrange produces mostly zygotic seeds as Sanford. I could not find any first hand information about it.
Thank you!

around winter 2015/16 I applied Paclobutrazol on many of my plants. Also on some seedlings.
Now I found a 2 year old seedling of a Ichang papeda with a small flower on top. It is only one seedling among many others and I am not sure if it is because of the treatment. Future will show if this plant is already mature or not. Maybe it only happens once like with some grapefruits.
Here is a picture sorry for the bad quality

here you can see how Paclo works. Seedlings grow very bushy.

Cold Hardy Citrus / hybrids with precocious Poncirus
« on: May 25, 2017, 02:18:38 PM »
Did anybody use precocious Poncirus for  creating hybrids?
I try to cultivate it since some years but it is very sensitive for me. So I haven`t seen a flower yet.
I am interested if some offspring is showing the precocious trait.
