Out of stock

This cross was made in 1909, and the variety was named and described in 1923. Fruit medium-small, globose to oval; colour yellow to orange-yellow. The tree is very vigorous, upright and thorny. Leaves are variable with some being trifoliate. Presumably because of the larger size and edibility of the fruit, it is much the most popular citrangequat variety.

The Thomasville Citrangequat is an extremely hardy orange hybrid hardy to at least 5F (a bit less when young). It  is an Oval kumquat and Willits citrange hybrid (Citrus japonica . ‘Nagami’ x (Citrus trifoliata x Citrus sinensis  ‘Ruby’) When the fruit is about 8 months old at the time it tastes like a lime and has a very agreeable taste. When fully ripened at about 10 months, the fruit tastes more like a kumquat, the skin and pulp are sweet.  Slightly tart, with kumquat aftertaste. The Thomasville Citrangequat was an early breeding attempt to develop a cold-hardy variety. It first fruited in Thomasville, Ga., and is a prolific bearer of kumquat-orange-flavored fruit. Established trees may grow to 15 feet in height and can survive temperatures as low as 5 degrees. While itis relatively seedy, it is very juicy and valued for eating fresh.  Most people comment that it is a decent lime substitute and the best one for a cold climate. The cross was made in 1909, and the variety was named and described in 1923. Fruit medium-small, globose to oval; colour yellow to orange-yellow. The tree is very vigorous, upright and thorny. Leaves are variable with some being trifoliate. Presumably because of the larger size and edibility of the fruit, it is much the most popular citrangequat variety.

    I always struggle to find plants that will grow in the full sun, clay soil area behind my house, but this plant is hanging in and growing. I can’t wait til the hummingbirds start to come.

    It arrived intact, just in need of some care. I’m happy to have got this one, this tree means a lot to me – one of my favorite as a child in the countryside of Brazil.

    I have purchased now three cold hardy citrus (citrandarin, and swingle citrumelo) both are in ground, doing great, but this thomasville cintrangaquat is shriveled, looks dry, and not happy. Little concerned this one is not going to make it and do as well as the other two.
