Citradia, your poncirus tree is quite large to protect during your area's winters.

Pagnr, gave you good information.  I use a horticulture oil spray for both thrips, scale, mealy bugs, and aphids,  Works well.

I agree, looks under watered by quite a bit.

HLB in Poland is unlikely.  However, the leaves do have the look of an HLB infection.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: xie shan satsuma

Mike, I have grown Xie Shan for 10 years.  The taste is amazing.  I have attended three Citrus Expositions, at two of the expos (Charleston and Alabama) there was a best tasting citrus contest.  Xie Shan won  at both expo. I grow my tree inside a large greenhouse, so I cannot attest to it cold hardiness.  However, Satsuma as a group, are considered a hardier fruit, tut to what degree I cannot say..

I agree with Brian's assessment.  I also would  do nothing.  Looks OK.

Pager i am not sure of the species, I received the seeds from Eyeckr a member of this forum.  You can enquire from him.

I originally had two Ginger Limes trees, both grown from seed.  I got impatient waiting for blooms and cut the tree down to toss it into the dumpster.  Then sadly I noticed flowers on the top of the tree but it was two late.   The blooming time from seed to flower was only 3 years. Now I only have one tree.  I frequently chew on the leaves as I pass by the tree, as the leaves have a good ginger taste.

Many mandarins are ready to eat before they turn orange.

The graft show is identical of how one grafts walnuts. I call in a patch graft.

If the tree has not produced fruit yet, being it is now 5 years old, the tree should produce next year or the year after that.

46
Limeberry is closely related to citrus.  I don't know if it is close enough to cross propagate.  Does sound interesting.

47
Plant a citrus seed to grow a tree to maturity (6 to 10 years), is worth it if you want a challenge, and to prove to yourself that you did it successfully  Otherwise just purchase a grafted tree, and have fruit in 1 to 2 years.

Pagnr, again very helpful information.  My green Finger Lime is growing in direct  full summer sun, and looks exactly as you describe in the above post.  The tree is a container tree, so I will move it into a partial sun/shade environment and watch how it does.  Thanks.

Citrus General Discussion / Re: pruning or staking very long branches
« on: August 29, 2022, 05:15:24 PM »
You can prune the branch, it is not a problem.  As fruit grows on new growth, it might not fruit for a year.
