« on: November 28, 2023, 01:16:43 AM »
Here is an archive of his citrus blog from around 2007. He created many different citrus hybrids though has not been active for a few years.

I saw the name Tom McClendon on Don's blog. Tom McClendon posts on Facebook and has started a new citrus blog himself.

There was a redirect somewhere, but I didn't notice it. Corrected it.

Appears to be last updated in 2021. He may be active but on other forums?

There was also such a site

But according to the mail, Don didn't administer it there.

Thanks for putting these links together. I used to follow Don and his quest to make improved edible hardy citrus. It's unfortunate that he has seemingly abandoned his project. Dr Brown was the source of a few of my hardy citrus as well. Its great that Matthew was able to visit him and document his visit.

There is a Facebook group called "Oklahoma Palms growers - Tropical Zone Pushing"

Maybe one of you English speakers will ask the administrator about Don?
