TaiTri

So far TaiTri has proved hardy in marginal zone 8. My favorite leaf structure of all trifoliate hybrids.

Your profile says you are on the border of zone 8a/7b in the state of Georgia.

It's really helpful to clarify the growing location when you make these posts so the information will be useful to others.

this is a very healthy tree. What are the fruit like?  I have an unknown PT hybrid with leaves that look very much the same, narrower than citrumelo or citrange. The fruit looks exactly like a very yellow lemon and it tastes like a lemon except the skin and white it is extremely bitter. More bitter than straight Poncirus trifoliata. But none of the latex like gum of PT. This tree does fine in upper zone 8a. I read that Citrus taiwanica is very bitter also.

Sorry I Don't know what the fruit taste like but I've heard that, " with less of the objectionable flavor than any other 50% P. trifoliata hybrid." Tree is about 3 years old with some decent branching, so won't have fruit anytime soon until 5-6 years old.

here is my tai-tri in zone 7a NJ. it kept 90% of leaves over the winter and the central leader is now over 6ft. unfortunately something chewed the bark (groundhog) at the bottom of the trunk. i did a bridge graft where the big chunk of bark was missing I hope it will have time to recover.

My TaiTri seedlings have such leaves:
This is a picture from spring after a winter with -11°C / 12.2°F


The leaves are quite uniform on all seedlings.

If these are the ones I sent you, they came from eyeckr.
