I understand these fruits should be reaching ripeness now. I will glad buy fruits off you. My use is for treating cancer and studies show the poncirins have good anti-neoplastic properties. I would be grateful if you have mature producing trees to share some fruit. Thanks!

If anyone has or knows of a source for the plants or seeds, it would be greatly appreciated. The fruit is a pod with cotton candy like flesh inside.

I'm looking to buy Poncirus trifoliata fruit (Japanese bitter orange) from anyone who will to sell them. I understand the peel and flesh has good anticancer properties, which at the moment is very important to me. You can PM me if you have some or will be expecting some this season. I would greatly appreciate it and will pay a fair price. Thanks.


Citrus General Discussion / Painting trees

Anyone try painting your citrus tree trunks and stalks? Is there a benefit?

I bought some organic tree paint to give it a try as I noticed some cracking of bark on a Satsuma from last summers heat. I figured it can't hurt.

Cold Hardy Citrus / Arctic Frost Satsuma experience
« on: April 06, 2017, 10:36:37 AM »
Hello, I just joined the forum here, great place and lucky find!

I live in the DFW area and recently transplanted myself from San Diego. I am a citrus nut and just had to have my citrus. After some research I discovered a Texas Satsuma variety originating from Texas A&M called Arctic Frost. It has been shown to have good cold tolerance down to 9-10oF.  Hard to believe. After getting several and planting them end of August last year, they took a bad beating when we had high winds and 16oF. They were covered and had a halogen uplight. Anyway I got complete die back of foliage and limbs, as did my Seto Satsuma I put in the ground. I guess they were still too young to take it?

I have found the Arctic Frost not to be vigorous and very touchy to transplanting. It is not a grafted plant but originally grown from seed and now propagated by cuttings.

Anyone else have experience with an Arctic Frost Satsuma?  I'll later attach a photo of the one Arctic Frost I kept in greenhouse protection this winter.
