Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: grafting citrus
« on: May 22, 2024, 08:44:34 PM »
Anybody have any idea what type of citrus this might be? Iíve been using it as my base tree for a multi grafted tree. I bought it a long time ago and itís made like one flower all time with no fruits

So far Iíve gotten kinkoji grapefruit and cara cara to take, not sure if that helps for the ID

Citremon in zone 7a is exciting, even with protection. Do you know the lowest temperatures it has withstood? I grafted Citremon on trifoliate rootstock to plant out in the field this year. It's growing nicely but I know it is probably one of the more sensitive trifoliate hybrids given it's lemon parentage.

I'd say mid-single digits

Very nice to see, how the experiment turns to success.
Is the xie shan also in ground ? If yes astonishing that it took 7 į F.

Yes, all of these are in ground but get protection in the winter

Citrus General Discussion / Grafting previously rooted cutting
« on: April 19, 2024, 10:55:12 PM »
I rooted this golden nugget mandarin cutting a couple years ago and since hasnít really done much. Minimal new growth, flowers in the spring but overall looks like shit. Is it worth it to try grafting it onto flying dragon or are the chances of it improving afterwards slim?

At least you know they do well in containers :) I have some fruiting in a #5 pot. The biggest problem I see is that they grow super fast and will eventually get too big to move around. With pruning, you should be able to keep them manageable.

Simon

Nothing I wonít already be used to,  already have to move plenty of big trees in 30 gallon+ containers. Probably why I keep adding herniated discs every couple years haha

Up potted my seedling plant. Currently flushing new growth




Nick, your seedling looks very healthy, will you be putting it into the ground eventually?

Thanks Ben, yes Iím definitely super stoked!

Jeramy, Iíd agree itís probably time to put that male on there. If you graft it soon, hopefully it will produce pollen for you next year.

Simon

Unfortunately going to stay container  bound, gets too cold out here

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: When to move my trees outside

Be careful with the amount of sunlight, April seems extra bright. Burned a few eugenias recently.

Oh yea thatís the fun part. Moving the ones out of the greenhouse is easy, itís acclimating the ones that have been under artificial UV for six months thatís a pain in the ass

Ugh, they are dioecious?  I didn't even realize

I always thought they were self fertile

Wow, very nice guys. Nick has a monster leaf. Now I don't know if I want to show my small leaves on my two plants. Nice growth on yours as well Nate. Maybe I better move my plants into a larger pot, the treepot may be too small.

If it makes you feel any better the other two arenít looking too hot since Iíve moved them outside to acclimate lol

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Guabiju and calycina pollination
« on: April 04, 2024, 04:24:41 PM »
How old is the guabiju, and how large? My seedlings are a few years old but they get tip burn every winter and then don't start growing until late spring, so they are still very small (6 inches tall at most). I'm very impressed with their hardiness (only tip burn and a few dead leaves from 15įF), but figured they won't flower for many years at this rate.

If I had to guess probably 3-4 years old. In desperate need of a repotting too

My solo calycina set fruit.  The seeds seemed normal and I have a couple of them growing new plants.

  I've never heard of guabiju, though, can't speak to that one.

Interesting I guess Iíll find out in due time

Guabiju is myrcianthes pungens
