HAVE: Flying Dragon

Last year I found a wild orange tree, forgot the proper name.
Was told that this one was called a Flying Dragon. To make a long story short I have three or four young plants. Would
any one going to Mid Tn. spring swap be interested in one?
If so I will put your name on one.

I will take care of you folks. Was a bad winter for my fig
cuttings. According to Marty I allways started the cuttings
at the wrong time of the year, they must have heard her
because they all died this year. Now you folks know that this
orange is not edible,just sort of strange.

Norm, would love to have more blackberry babies, if you have any come up. Mom actually had blackberries off those last ones this year.

Norm, are these seedlings contorted? (corkscrew or something like that?) the hardy orange, poncirus trifoliata, has one cultivar with dragon in the name which is a contorted tree. Unfortunately that trait is rarely passed on to it's offspring. I would really like to have one of these. (the contorted one that is. I have several of the normal seedlings, thanks to members of the fall swap.

Well now I am not sure what they are. The parent tree was
contored and I thought the seedlings would be the same.
Will have a few extra if it's what you want.

If anyone going to the East TN/Knoxville swap is interested, I will have some of the normal (non-contorted) seedlings available. :-)

Incidentally -- the oranges ARE edible, in the sense that it is possible to make jam from them. They are just too sour to eat fresh, and too small/pithy to be very worthwhile to cook down.
