Aw, geez . . . . I'm a thousand miles away. I would love to get some citrus nobilis scionwood. But it's too far to drive for me. Wish I could be there.

Joe, do you know who in your circle of "citrus friends" might have that citrus variety? Or, since you have 50-in-1 tree, might one of the 50 be a c. nobilis?

Thanks,
Chong

(For those that might be curious what this citrus is, it is a very sweet orange, native to the Philippines, which the skin remains green or light green even when ripe. It is a true orange [no pun intended, the name of the orange soda pop in the Philippines is "Tru-Orange". The juice in this drink comes from the citrus nobilis.])

chong, you are just about 900 miles away, at least last time I drove up I-5. We drive up to BC every now and then and have some relatives there too at
oyster bay, Wa.

I don't have that variety nor any circle of friends that I know. For sure University of California, Riverside down there in the Southern Ca, have it in their citrus germplasm. I buy most budwoods from UCR through the CCPP budwood program. The C. nobilis is a synonym of something else, so it may not be unique to the Philippines, just can't recall at the moment, but then again maybe you're right.

One thing for sure, it will be technically classed as mandarins, if I were to search the germplasm. And I am sure that it's skin will become orange here in California when it ripens. The dramatic difference between night and day and mostly the cool nights even during the summer, California's citruses have the deepest coloration of oranges and brightest colored lemons too. We have well formed blood orange pigmentation in the inland valley. Our calamondins will easily turn orange color. I have discussed this type of coloration in various postings at the citus forum ( http://ww.citrus.forumup.org )

The January scionwood exchange are mostly for temperate crops as listed. No citrus no avocadoes and other tropicals.

But come sometime in March, there is a guy who owns a 275-citrus collection on his 1000 acre farm, and sometimes he opens to members of CRFG, but I can sneak you in. He is generous in giving away citrus budwoods. As far as I can recall, C. nobilis is not there. I find various Australian citruses in his farm. Mostly you can taste the fruits.

And then come April, that's the time when we exchange citrus and avocado budwoods and other tropicals like banana pups.

Kinnow mandarin is Citrus nobilis. I have grafted that last summer and it hasn't sprouted yet. Many people I know have kinnow mandarin.

Thanks for the info, Joe. Indeed, the citrus nobilis is a mandarin. I mean, just look, the thin rind and membranes surrounding the pulp are consistent with most mandarins. Also, the rind peels off easily, just like the satsuma. Apparently, this variety, the "dalanghita"/"narangita", is indigenous to the Philippines and SE Asia.

My interest in this was kindled by my friend in Sta. Clarita, asking me if I can find a plant like it. She doesn't remember that was the same fruit as the dalanghita. A couple of years later, while visiting them at their home, I decided to vist the nurseries in the area. Well, I found a nursery that had them and bought one for them. Wish they had them in 1-gallon pots. The 10-gallon plant would be a bear to bring back to Seattle from L.A. That was in 1998, so I forget the exact name of the nursery - something like "Green Nursery" or "Green World Nursery". They appear to be a chain nursery store.

Anyway, I will keep an eye on the calender for the CRFG events in March & April, 2007. Might even renew my membership in CRFG.

Tammy,

The avos and citruses would be around the April exchange. I will also post it here. Just remind me about the scionwood that you wanted by then.
