Originally created in 1965 by Dr. Joe Furr at Indio, California. It was released for use in Florida as a rootstock around 1999, but later discontinued. A seedling of US 852 is growing in Northern Virginia and withstood 0°F, it died to the ground in a  severe winter, but did resprout from the roots.  There was one several years old in Philadelphia, and at least one growing in New Jersey. 

Fruit is sour but quite tasty. When diluted and sweetened like lemons are able to make a pleasant tasting  ‘ade’.   The only downside is the high seed count and and strong pith that keeps the segments adhered to the skin.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  7. 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.
