    Here's a seedling that came from a seed from an Ichang papeda x trifoliate cross PXL_20210227_003549325.jpg

    The leaves don't really look the best now, but they do look better than the Ichang papedas.

    Here's the tiny little Keraji seedling on its own roots that's been in the ground for a couple of years now. It really doesn't look well, but it will survive.

    The leaves are pretty pale yellowish, and while not dead, are probably going to be non-functional. However the seedling will later grow new leaves. Basically this small seedling is barely hanging on.

    update April 26, 2021

    Sudachi, starting to put out a new flush of leaf growth

    Ichang papeda, it got pretty pale and yellowish but many of the leaves are beginning to green up just a little bit now

    planted out in the ground, away from the house, both were left uncovered
    this was a relatively mild winter in terms of how low the temperature dropped

    Please update on your young citrus tree progress when you get a chance next spring. Recent purchased a yuzu and a sudachi plant. Planning to over winter them in the unheated garage in zone 7A. They are young tree so in ground might not be good now, but wondering if the minimum soil in these small pots will be even worse for them. Taking a little risk to test them out but if it’s too cold, maybe below 15F, Iggy bring them inside the house.
