Thomasville is a good story, Yuzuquat is an unlucky story.

Ichangquat in begin of June, two sprouts I was happy  ;D

then a few days later, a snail killed me both sprouts :-\, so I repotted the plant and now Im still hoping/waiting. I had new sprouts but from the rootstock, which I had to remove.

Ichangquat today

Thomasville today, in good shape.

would it make any sense to to grow in a 5+/- gallon pot till it is 3+ feet tall before planting in ground early spring.

6 weeks since planting in ground, a 4.5 year old seed grown Meiwa kumquat with a  0.5cubic meter canopy is starting to grow flower buds as well as foliage.  It is unlikely that animals will do much damage.

Yes, I regret not to have taken the plant into pot directly after winter for recovery. But the last years we nearly had no snails so I didn' t took that into account.
But you are right, that bigger plants have no problem to loose a few leaves or sprouts by snails.

Poncirusguy, sorry for the delay, here the pictures


Ichangquat, after snailattack to fresh sprouts I hadto repot, but now only rootstock sprouts  ::), don' t know if the ichangquat will survive.
regards Frank

update of citsuma Prague and Ivia, which are grown, but not so much as Sanford and Yuzu.
