Hardy Citrus – Flying Dragon
Poncirus trifoliata ‘Flying Dragon’
z. 5 – 10 ht. 6′ – 8′ or shorter
Striking and remarkable, very cold-hardy (for citrus) tree with twisted and curled stems. Beautiful, large white, fragrant ‘orange’ blossoms that are followed by 2″ fruits. Tree makes a deer-proof ‘living barbed-wire fence’ with curled thorns. The very fragrant fruits should be left to cure a few weeks after picking before squeezing for a very nice sour orange juice. Definitely a remarkable plant. Can be containerized. Ancient Chinese cultivar grown for thousands of years.
All Permaculture Plants are 1-gallon sized plants.
