Flying Dragon

[2602]

$ 19.95

A unique and exotic Citrus relative, Flying Dragon is a deciduous, very dwarf tree with attractive, contorted branches and equally attractive, hook shaped thorns. Flying Dragon bears yellow, 2” diameter fruits that yield juice that can be used as a lemon-like seasoning. In China we have seen Flying Dragon used as a compact, impenetrable hedge. Flying Dragon is reportedly hardy to at least 0°F. and can be grown outside in many areas of the Pacific Northwest and other regions of the U.S. with mild winters.

Latin Name:Poncirus trifoliata monstrosa

Site and Soil:In spring, summer and fall, keep your potted Citrus in a location with 1/2 day to full sun. In the winter, place your plant in a well-lit room. Potting soil should be coarse, acidic, and well-drained.

RootstockDescription:Flying Dragon is a hardy and very dwarfing rootstock for Citrus that induces very early flowering and fruit procuction. Trees grown on Flying Dragon will rarely exceed 5 ft. in height and will often produce fruit the year they are planted.

Pollination Requirements:Flying Dragon is self-fertile. You can help it set fruit by taking a small brush and moving pollen from flower to flower.

Hardiness:Flying Dragon is hardy to about 0°F.

Bearing Age:2-3 years after planting

Size at Maturity:2-3 ft.

BloomTime:Spring

Ripening Time:Flying Dragon ripens in late fall.

Yield:20-30 lbs.

Pests & Diseases:While outside, Citrus plants will likely not be bothered by insect pests. Be on the lookout for slugs. Indoors, Citrus can have mites and/or aphids. Watch carefully for any problems and treat with an insecticidal soap or wash them off. We have not seen any disease problems on our Citrus plants.
