Post some pics! I purchased mine from nuncar and this is what I got haha. So mine came true. Mine was rather cheap from there, ran around $25.

If people want on the list, just to see how many seeds I have to divide, send me a pm. Being thereís a lot that want the seeds I ask for shipping costs! I will send whole fruits. I have roughly 30-50 fruits. Some ripened, some not fully yet.

I agree, I hope the finger lime comes in to save the industry. Iíve been following it for sometime now, the peptide looks very promising when looking at the actual data. Hopefully it performs just as well in the field. Weíll see in a few years. 

Neither, bud I've been told Procimequat is more lime like and actually had something to it, whereas Kinzu is basically just a seed or two with skin.

Yes, procimequat. I was lazy lol.


If anyone is looking for P-quat, woodlanders just sent me a nice little tree with 1 fruit on it. They still have them and are shipping this month only.


Starting to ripen. Definitely is Hong Kong.. should have seeds soon.

Where turface is not locally available, would it be acceptable to use fine chicken grit? They seem like theyíre similar in size and material.

Iíll let it recover from shipping for a week or two longer, and I suppose the option to do would cut! Sad, but Iíll do it for the Var! I am not comfortable enough with my grafting skills to ruin these chances.

Well Iím hoping itís true to be! Any recommendations on getting it to shoot out? Iím going to take a light and shine it more directly on the variegated portion in hopes of getting it as well, but prefer not to cut off the entire other parts of the tree to force it.

Just wondering what would cause this? Could it be an actual mutation or likely due to chemical treatment and will eventually die off? Just received from a nursery.

Would be cool if I could get this to grow and propagate it, but I fear itís unlikely.

I just bought 7 trees from Madison Citrus Nursery. They all look great.
I was surprised to see they sold US942, I couldn't find that rootstock anywhere else.

I honestly donít think Iíll buy from anywhere else! Theyíre one of the very few that ship to most states in the US, AND Canada! Hershell is just a super swell guy too. If you guys get the chance, chat with him for a bit. Heís packed with knowledge!

I donít normally do this, but I really feel this is well deserved. I wanted to throw another shoutout to Madison Citrus Nursery ran by a really down to earth guy, Hershell.

I just wanted to say, Iíve purchased thousands of dollars of trees from many vendors throughout the US like many of you had, yet in my opinion none compare to those of this quality for the price you pay. On top of that, he offers some crazy rare trees that no one else seems to! Heís just a guy that has an absolute passion for the hobby as we all do, but not out to gouge. I had the pleasure of talking with Hershell when I asked some questions about my trees I bought from him. I have his permission to share some pictures from his nursery about his plants and show that quality Iím talking about.

Heís got some cool stuff coming, various variegated varieties (those that are more uncommon), Red Finger Limes, Giant Finger limes, Amoa 8, and much more.

Looking for trading some bud wood! Looking for various lemon or lime varieties. Iíd like to get some regular fruiting trees back in my collection. I have bud wood from a fruiting trees:

Red Finger Lime:

Kinzu kumquat (Hong Kong):

Murcott Mandarin:

Miewa Kumquat:

Add me on there, if you happen to find any other rootstock laying around! If not, no worries.

I counted around 40 fruits on the tree and about 50 more flowers coming! Started flowering and it doesnít quit!!

I do agree Brian, Iíll hopefully have seeds within a month or two!

Found this on UCR: "The Hongkong wild kumquat fruits have only three or four segments. The ovaries of the procimequat hybrid under consideration usually show from four to five segments."

For fun I cut one open, seems to have 3 segments. My guess is it is indeed HK but I'll check again when fruits are ripe. Even if it is prociemquat, it's still a crazy cool hard to find hybrid, being a triploid that still gives seeds, however only producing nucellar seeds.

Hello, the description for the plant sounds like it is a Procimequat. I emailed the seller for clarification and they were borderline rude and defensive about the name not matching the description. So it doesn't sound like they know wether that is a Hindsii or the hybrid Procimequat. What does your fruit look like?

Looks like a HK to me! Tons of little fruits, crazy everywhere. Flowering again even... I will have seeds available soon. I'm thinking based on what it looks like, the plant and the dime sized fruits about to ripen, it is a Hong Kong kumquat. I could be mistaken anyways though.. I'll see if it has one or a few seeds once they ripen, that will be a final determining factor.

Just wondering if anyone has any coffee cherries/seeds for seed planting? I know I can buy off of eBay, but I tend to get better results when getting from one of you guys!

Laaz, pm me with pricing!

Hoping Laaz has these guys for sale again this fall.. just wanted to show off his variety! Less than 11 months from seed this guy is pushing flower buds. Truly is a Fast Fruiting Trifoliate.

I wonder if the F2 generation will contain the same qualities.

I contacted briteleaf a ways back early spring for their cuttings, they stayed mid to late fall they should have a good variety. I ordered their rooted cuttings Yuzuís before and they are great trees.

They sell them at lowes for 30$ here.

Honestly this is not a good tree or fruit though.  I would not recommend growing it theres plenty of better options.  If you just want to grow a smaller tree, sharwil is way better.

I just thought they were one of the only dwarf avoís around so figure thatís what Iím more so limited to. I donít mind fruit flavor, I just like to get fruit. In a smaller container Iíd be lucky to get more than 2 per season as it is, along with being an A type allowing some fruit without another tree.. Iíll look into sharwil though! If it can be grown in a 10-15gal Iíd definitely be interested in finding one.
