Wondering if anyone is familiar with the Citrumelo that is offered by Logee's nursery. I am wondering what variety it may be. I tried contacting them, and all they could tell me was that they sourced it from Newport, RI and that the fruits are seedless. Has anyone grown this or have any idea what it may be? Thanks!
Hi Chris Welcome to the forum. The source that is listed perplexes me. Not that it is a falsehood but I have not any information on it. Since I have no info, I cannot comment. Lots of folks with info so I am sure someone will. Good luck on your citrus adventure.
Might not be a select cultivar for eating out of hand? But you could plant it and graft it over from one of the germplasm sources. I saw dunstan X citramello budsticks. And there is a Succory X Citramello (also 1/4 poncirus) if you could find a budsource. They reportedly are not as cold hardy as 50% poncirus trees.
Has anyone tasted these: Bloomsweet Grapefruit: ... "the bloomsweet produces bountiful crops of large delicious grapefruits. Trees are very hardy and withstand temps down to around 15 F. ... from Japan.is called Citrus Kinkoji. "
I would trust Stan if he says they are delicious. (but grapefruit flav' is subjective, Opinions vary) mckenzie-farms: mckenzie-farms.com/photo.htm

I’ve tasted Bloomsweet before, and it was debatable whether or not it was a grapefruit among the group of tasters because it was so sweet. I planted one years ago but it wasn’t hardy enough here and froze to death.
