mikkel:
I put cuttings in a pot and covered with a plastic bag. In the summer with sufficient heat some have rooted.  Now at this time of year soil heat may be helpful....

Poncirus is not necessarily difficult to grow, but it's quite far from commonplace/easy to find around here, with the next nearest tree belonging to fellow hobbyists, or the aforementioned trees further south in the Portland area.

If the rooting doesn't work out for you, I got one from a local Seattle-area nursery (pick-up only, down in Buckley, near Enumclaw):

Mine has already totally defoliated at 25F a couple weeks ago.

Thanks for this bit of info, I'm a bit North but may have to make the trek come spring. Though, looking at the picture of the fruit he has on his website, the skin looks rather rough for Poncirus, perhaps a hybrid of some sort

@Pagnr, unfortunately the only other citrus I have currently is a meiwa kumquat I have planted outdoors, I currently have it under a cover due to the snow we're expecting in the coming weeks and don't think a graft would take well in these conditions.
