Hardy Citrimelo Fruit in Northern VA!

Boca_Joe(zone 7A)December 8, 2012

A bunch of us are growing these in the MD and VA area around DC. Our trees range from 7-12' tall. They have been in several years now. My friend's bloomed and fruited this year, photos below just taken on Thursday. Pretty amazing.

Very nice job, Joe! How did your fruit taste? Is it edible?

Thanks Patty. I'll have to ask my friend. He may have nade mimosas already with them. I have not tasted them yet, but should be sweeter than poncirus and not quite as sweet as grapefruit. It's a cross between Poncirus trifoliata and pummelo grapefruit. I'll keep you posted.
