first fruit

I’ve written about my Poncirus trifoliata ‘Flying Dragon’ before. It keeps surprising me with firsts.


This time it’s the fruit. I should have photographed them when they were in the early stages, but there was probably no way to capture the luminous quality of the small green balls. They are now about the size of golf balls. Waiting for them to get all bumply was futile…that’s the Osage orange…duh. Oh well, this will do.

  1. Cool looking! When I first looked at them, I thought they were lemons and wondered where the rest of the tree was! But this plant is way more interesting than a citrus.

  2. Hi Ricki~~ I had a Poncirus but gave it to my garden buddy Carol when it failed to bloom. No bloom, no fruit. Yours looks very healthy, a testament to your gardening prowess.
