(1)  5 gal   57.00 

fruit: citrus, Mandarin, Lee x Nova  Lee x Nova Mandarin, fruit   
Parentage/origins: Lee mandarin x Nova mandarin

Season of ripeness at Riverside: October to December

Notes and observations: USDA 88-2 is a cross between Lee and Nova mandarins. It was developed at the United States Department of Agriculture Station in Orlando, Florida, and has since been evaluated for commercial potential. It is a moderately large tree at maturity. 88-2 is an early season mandarin with small to medium size fruit. The fruit is easy to peel, seedless, and very juicy. The rind is a medium orange color and thin. The flavor is rich and sweet.

3/11/2008, Mikael Roose and Tim Williams: seedless under all conditions, low probability of causing seeds in other mandarins, early season maturity (November), high brix (13% in November, 15-16% in late December) and very rich, distinctive flavor, pale rind color, mean fruit size 24, round shape (not flattened) with tendency toward a blossom end nipple. Moderately easy to peel. Good holding ability on tree through February. Moderate production with tendency to alternate bear.

fruit: citrus, Orangequat, 'Nippon'  Nippon Orangequat   
We adore the tart flavor on this one and the fact that we can eat the entire fruit, skin and all. Given that both parents of this hybrid are rather cold hardy we’re assuming hardiness to at least 20 degrees though we are just beginning to test them outdoors here in Portland.

Fruit: Feijoa sellowiana  Pineapple Guava, fruit   
Super-tasty fruits which are not viable for shipping to supermarkets - just for your back yard.

Pineapple Guavas are an ideal fruit tree for the Bay Area. Originally from the scrublands of Paraguay, Uruguay, northern Argentina and southern Brazil, these non-tropical, evergreen trees are drought tolerant (though they need water to set fruit) and virtually disease and pest free. They feature large, showy flowers with edible petals; dense, dark green foliage; plus delicious fruit to boot. The aromatic fruit is ripe when it falls to the ground. Fruiting season, depending on cultivar, is from late September to early December.

Pineapple guavas will grow to about 15 feet tall x 15 wide, but can be kept at any height or width by pruning. For a thick hedge, plant about 10ft.-15ft apart. Their dense foliage is ideal for screening out the view of your neighbors.

These seedlings were grown from fruit of 9 cultivars that I found to be the best tasting out of a selection of over 25 cultivars that were developed by our West Coast expert, Mark Albert in Ukiah. Mark has been selecting trees for Northern California that have superior tasting fruit for about 40 years.

The seedlings are from:

Albert’s Pride, early fruiting, late September
– October

Albert's Supreme, late fruiting, November
–early December
