Mandarin mix (Citrus_Reticulata)Citrus reticulata, Mandarin orange, mandarin mandarine – 10 seed


 $6.00
Mandarin orange, also known as the mandarin or mandarine, is a small citrus tree (Citrus reticulata) with fruit resembling other oranges. Mandarin oranges are usually eaten plain or in fruit salads. Specifically reddish-orange mandarin cultivars can be marketed as tangerines, but this is not a botanical classification. When exporting began, local Mandarin oranges were named after their port of origin.  The tree is more drought-tolerant than the fruit. The mandarin is tender and is damaged easily by cold. It can be grown in tropical and subtropical areas.
According to molecular studies, the mandarin, the citron, the pomelo, and the papeda were the ancestors of all other citrus species and their varieties, through breeding or natural hybridization; mandarins are therefore all the more important as the only sweet fruit among the parental species.

 $7.00 
This citrus fruit is native to Asian countries and is used in Asian cuisine.

The green to yellowish when fully ripe fruit is juicy and not very sweet, known for it’s lumpy exterior and its small size (approx. 4 cm wide). Both the leaves and fruit are used in cooking, and can also be eaten fresh. Wonderfully flavored for both sweet and savory dishes. The rind of the kaffir lime is commonly used in Lao and Thai curry paste, adding an aromatic, astringent flavor. The zest of the fruit is used in creole cuisine and to impart flavor to “arranged” rums in the Martinique, Réunion island and Madagascar. some Vietnam cusine with chicken serve include lime leaves dice to add fragment. steaming snail also include lime leave to decrease the stink when steam. However, it is the hourglass-shaped leaves (comprising the leaf blade plus a flattened, leaf-like leaf-stalk or petiole) that are used most often in cooking. They can be used fresh or dried, and can be stored frozen. The leaves are widely used in Thai and Lao cuisine (for dishes such as tom yum), and Cambodian cuisine (for the base paste “Krueng”). The leaves are also used in Indonesian cuisine (especially Balinese cuisine and Javanese cuisine), for foods such as sayur asam, and are used along with Indonesian bay leaf for chicken and fish. They are also found in Malaysian and Burmese cuisines. In Cambodia, the entire fruit is crystallized/candied for eating
Fruit sliced thinly and added to a jug of cold water in the fridge, it will make a great thirst quenching drink on a hot day, no sugar required. Fruit can be used as a substitute for ordinary lime in European recipes. Very tasty mixed with ginger, garlic, chile, coriander and lemon grass in savory dishes. Has many health benefits like all citrus, and is high in Vit C. The juice and rinds are used in traditional Indonesian medicine; for this reason the fruit is referred to in Indonesia as jeruk obat (“medicine citrus”).

Key Lime Mix Citrus aurantifoliaKEY LIME, Citrus aurantifolia, West Indian Lime – 10 fresh seeds  
a.k.a. Mexican Lime, West Indian Lime. A small lime, ripening to yellow, although often used when green. The Key Lime tends to be more aromatic in flavor and scent than other limes. Flavor is excellent and is used to make Key Lime Pie. A small tree, generally to 10-20ft. Fruits ripen about 5-6 months following flowering. In California, flowers are produced during spring-summer. The Key Lime is more cold sensitive than most of its relatives, and tends to be injured or killed with temperatures below 32F. It isn’t too picky about soils and adapts fairly well to sandy soils. Keep trees well drained, extensive periods of flooding can kill the tree. Grow in full sun, trees need quite a bit of heat to set quality fruit. Propagation is by seeds. Also by grafting, with which trees tend to produce fruit a bit faster (3-4 years, vs. 4-7 for seedlings). Note on seeds: Seeds are harvested fresh, but to successfully germinate citrus seeds, a constant soil temperature at 75-85F is a must. Water moderately, only when the surface begins to dry. Over-watering can lead to rot. Sprout in shade, greenhouse or filtered sun, use anti-fungal. Fruits are commonly used in beverages and as an ingredient in desserts (Key Lime Pie for example). The fruits can be used just like any other limes. Native to southeast Asia. Has been cultivated for centuries throughout Asia and the Middle East.

The Australian Finger Lime plant, Citrus australasica is a thorny understorey shrub or small tree of lowland subtropical rainforest and dry rainforest in the coastal border region of Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. It has edible fruits which are under development as a potential new commercial crop.
The plant is 2–7 meters in height. Leaves are small, 1–6 cm long and 3–25 mm wide, glabrous, with a notched tip and crenate towards the apex. Flowers are white with petals 6–9 mm long. The fruit is cylindrical, 4–8 cm long, sometimes slightly curved, coming in different colors, including pink and green. Early settlers consumed the fruit and retained the trees when clearing for agriculture. Colonial botanists suggested that they should be cultivated. The finger lime has been recently popularized as a gourmet bushfood. The globular juice vesicles have been likened to a “lime caviar “, which can be used as a garnish or added to various recipes. The fresh vesicles have the effect of a burst of effervescent tangy flavour as they are chewed. The fruit juice is acidic and similar to that of a lime. Marmalade and pickles are also made from finger lime. The finger lime peel can be dried and used as a flavouring spice. Commercial use of finger lime fruit started in the mid-1990s in boutique marmalades made from wild harvested fruit. By 2000 the finger lime was being sold in restaurants, including the export of fresh fruit.
The finger lime has been recently grown on a commercial basis in Australia in response to high demand for the fruit.

Lemonade = Lemon X Navel Orange mixLemonade  Lemon, Citrus limon X Navel Orange, Citrus sinensis. 10 seed $11.00

 
The lemonade fruit is a hybrid citrus fruit found in Australia and New Zealand. A cross between a navel orange and a lemon, it was first cultivated in the 1980s and grows in subtropical regions of the two countries, notably Queensland in Australia and Northland in New Zealand. The fruit has a similar appearance to limes, but yellows as it ripens. The fruit is segmented, and can be eaten readily; its low-acid content gives it a sweet taste similar to the orange, but with a flavour not unlike a mild lemon.

Citrus jambhiri, Bush lemon mix10) Citrus jambhiri, Bush lemon, Rough Lemon – 10 seeds   $8.00

 
Citrus jambhiri A wild lemon from subtropical Australia, the bush lemon or rough lemon is very hardy, with a thick bumpy skin (like citron, below) and a strong lemon flavor from the rind—similar to a true lemon. The bush lemon can be very low in juice, but often always features a much stronger-tasting flesh than other lemons. Its hardiness makes it a good rootstock for grafting other varieties. The bush lemon is self-seeding. This means that when the seeds fall to the ground in the right environment, they will germinate and grow the following spring.

Blood lime finger x ellendale mix11) Blood Lime  Citrus australasica var. sanguinea X Ellendale Mandarin – 10 seed    $13.00

This hybrid citrus resulting from the open pollination of a flower of Citrus australasica var. sanguinea – the red finger lime, until recently known botanically as Microcitrus australasica. The pollen parent was either a Rangpur lime or an Ellendale Mandarin. Both these varieties are themselves citrus hybrids. The Rangpur is probably a cross between a lemon and a mandarin, and so sometimes called a lemanderin. It is an attractive fruit with a very acidic taste and orange peel and flesh. The Ellendale originated in Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia around 1878. It is believed to be a natural cross of a mandarin and an orange. The Ellendale Mandarin fruit is deep orange, with high sugar as well as acid content, which gives it a rich, sweet, tangy flavour.
