Meyer lemon

mikkel:
I was just looking for the parentage of Meyer. I can remember that there are new findings, but what is it again? I can only find Lemon x Orange.

bussone:
(C. maxima  C. reticulata) x C. medica.

So a pummelo/mandarin cross, something like a Dancy or a Ponkan, that was crossed with a citron.

Wouldn't C. Maxima x C. Reticulata be the same as an orange? I thought that oranges came about exactly as a result of this hybrid and that is why they are hardier than pommelo but less hardy than tangerines?

Something like a hybrid of bigaradia and citron. The sweet orange is a more complex hybrid with the same parents as bigaradia, but has undergone several crosses. It is stated that he was definitely not the parent of the Meyer lemon.

That is a very interesting chart! What is a bigaridia? Is that another name for a sour orange?
