Precocious trifoliate in my experience can be able to bloom 3 times a year, and right now I see another flower bud preparing to open probably next week. Not able to hold any fruit because of its size but still has viable pollen in spring, summer, and early fall.

Might be a citrus trifoliata hybrid? Possibly citrus rootstock? Do you have any pictures of the flowers?

I might have a male esculenta, wanted to see if they could possible pollinate yangmei.

Same thing happening to mine in GA. It is most likely the heat, previous summer it was fine but now it's beaten up from the abnormal heat of this summer.

Have always heard that this is the hardiest of Pouteria but never see any actual comment on the hardiness, hope someone could chime in?

Close up on the leaves, they are definitely Citrus glauca seeds germinated but of course they arenít pure and are hybrids. Of course I donít know the parent because it could be anything. Different hybrids show different growth forms and other characteristics .

They aren't pure glauca, they are open pollinated therefore is a F2 Citrus glauca.

No, its citrus glauca. Check out the leaves, they have some serration to them and I don't recall finger limes having serration on the leaves. And the leaves are thin not as broad as finger lime.

It's probably a hybrid if it keeps on putting out trifoliate leaves

Going with trifoliate.. want to add extra hardiness and dormancy

Citrus glauca, heard they're on pair with kumquat or maybe hardier when dormant, need to find where I got that from though. Debating between US-942 or Rubidoux trifoliate for rootstock. The plant will be in the pot for most of its life.

First time grafting and it's going to be a microcitrus species. What's the best grafting technique for grafting small twigs?

Cold Hardy Citrus / Re: Monoembryonic Hardy Orange?
« on: April 24, 2022, 11:37:09 AM »
I got these seeds and they sprouted this summer, they are monoembryonic but not zygotic. They all appear to look the same, I'll let them grow out more to determine more.

Here is one that grew some seed, which had leaves that looked hybridized but appears to have change the petiole size this spring.
