choosing citrus/fortunella variety for potted norther trees
I am curious how people choose their variety of citrus. I grow a lot of veggies and fruits and i can assure you that as good as my produce is, I can get better tasting of the same at a fruit stand or grocery store when they pick it right. I can tell when it is not right. I can also get it at $0.40 / lb to $1.33 /lb for citrus. Kumquats at $7.00 /lb even if they can be found are worth growing at home The tree are tough. The fruit is small so the tree can get a lot of fruit out with out straining and they ripen all winter long while other trees a dormant. To me the kumquat is the only citrus type fruit worth growing up north.
Can any of you other citrus,ers share how you chose your tree varieties.
