Bishop Segentrandarins Zygotic vs. Nucellar
« on: November 11, 2021, 11:05:57 AM »
Early in 2021 I planted a number of Bishop segentrandarin seeds. I lost some due to overheating, but had 5 surviving seedlings. After considerable neglect, these were collected today and moved into the cold frame. Alan had feared they were largely nucellar. I did notice some variability early on, but was surprised today, when it appears most, if not all, are clearly zygotic seedlings. The largest one is predominately monofoliate, as is a second smaller seedling. All differ from each other in frost resistance, leaf shape, etc.

I found Bishop to quite palatable once diluted. It's acidic, yet sweet. Poncirus tastes are minor and fleeting, it's the best tasting Poncirus hybrid I've tasted (I haven't tasted many). To this point my experiences have been much more seedling related, than fruit related, I hope that changes shortly!
