 SudachiCRC3471005.jpg

When used for cooking purposes, Sudachi is harvested while still green which occurs during September to October in California. Fruit is 1.3” round. 

11/2009, TJS: "Thought to be a hybrid of a papeda and a mandarin, Sudachi arose as a chance seedling in the Tokushima Prefecture of Japan, on Shikoku island, where it has traditionally been grown (Kawada, 1986). When harvested young, Sudachi is considered to have a distinctive fragrance that is different from Yuzu.

 The young fruits are used for cooking while still green, often being incorporated into vinegars or flavoring many different entrees, especially fish (Bitters, 1963). In dishes that utilize Sudachi, it is customary for the fruit to be sliced into thin wedges, adorning the main course. The flavor is now also used in soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. The fruits are produced for both processing and fresh fruit markets, with such demand that specialized storage systems were created to extend the market season (Kawada, 1992).

Citrus limettiodes                 Palestine Sweet Lime
(Indian sweet lime )
Zone 9– 12, Sun, Ht:3’ - 5’

 limes.jpg

The Palestine sweet lime is a hybrid. It is not known where or how the sweet lime originated. It is thought to be a hybrid between a Mexican lime and a sweet lemon or sweet citron, and believed to be native to India. It is chiefly cultivated in central and northern India, northern Vietnam, Egypt and the Mediterranean coast.

 

It arrived to the U.S. from Saharanpur, India, in 1904; there is modest cultivation in California. In the West Indies and Central America, it is eaten by cutting off the stem end, piercing the core with a knife and sucking out the juice. The fruit is eaten fresh in India, as well as cooked and preserved.

Citrus sinensis ,    Tarocco Blood Orange

Zone 9– 12, Sun, Ht:3’ - 5’

 blood-orange.jpg

This seedling line was chosen for propagation because of its outstanding performance on fruit production, vigor, fruit size, and its deep red color in the flesh and rind. The quality of the fruit is also excellent.Few seeds, very nice flavor.

Tarocco #7 is a medium-large to large blood orange variety with few to no seeds. Tarocco blood orange if one of the major blood orange varieties of the world.  The distinctive color is a natural mutation and is due to the presence of anthocyanin, the same plant compound that is responsible for the color of pomegranates.  The distinctive color requires a chilly winter to develop properly.

All Citrus

1 gallon size 12”-36” tall.

 $ 32.00ea. for 2016.

Shipped semi-bare rooted. Plant into a 1 or 2 gallon terra cotta pot with very well drained soil. Change soil every 3-4 years.

Citrus Care

  1. From Mail order, Pot these semi-bare rooted grafted 1 gallon citrus up into a 2 or 3 gallon pot with extremely well drained sandy rich soil. Terra cotta is best pot if available.  Do not use water trays as they collect water and drowned and rot the roots.

  2. Place outside for the spring, summer and early fall after temperatures come above 12C. Citrus do best for a good time outside. After last frost and before 1st frost.  April/May to September/October.

  3. Fertilize with Miracle Grow Tomato Food. Even Rhododendron Food Fertilizer works well. If leaves start to yellow add Iron or a rusty nail to the soil. Magnesium (Epson salts) helps in a small dose. Pot up to a larger size pot and/or change soil every 2 years. 

  4. Dwarf Flying Dragon root stock grafted on all the citrus keeps plants below 6’ but they can be pruned to 2’ for a small bush form. Remove corkscrew wiry and prickly off shoots from below graft line on all citrus. If left on they will suck the energy out of the main plant and reduce growth.

  5. When moving inside for winter Wash/hose of the plant to reduce pest transfer indoors. All bugs love citrus: Spider Mite, Aphids, Mealy Bugs and Scale. Ants will farm these pests on the citrus. Keep ant free!!

  6. Overwinter in a Bright Cool location inside while dormant and resting (even while fruit hanging on tree). Something like an unheated boot room connected to the house or a semi heated garage in front of the window. A bright place that won’t freeze.

  7.  Ideal temperature overwinter is 5 C to 14 C. Reduce watering and keep on the dry side.         Citrus Trees Stay Evergreen.
