a "Taichang Lemon", a hybrid between C. ichangensis and C. taiwanica.
One little minor correction, I believe Taichang Lemon is a hybrid of Ichang Lemon and C. taiwanica. The "Ichang Lemon" here, as it is called, is not the same as C. ichangensis, rather it is a hybrid between C. maxima (pomelo) and C. ichangensis, or possibly Yuzu. (Yuzu is pretty closely related to C. ichangensis so that can make a simple DNA marker ancestry analysis a bit difficult to discern)
It can get a little confusing because Ichang papeda is sometimes also referred to as "Ichang Lemon". The original Chinese doesn't help either because they are referred to using the same word for Chinese Citron, calling it Xiang Yuan, Shangjuan [just alternate different Romanized spellings] meaning "fragrant ball". Ichang lemons are substantially bigger with more juice than the fruits of Ichang papeda. Also Ichang lemon does not have the huge symmetrically sized winged petiole leaves that are a distinctive trait of Ichang papeda.
It still hasn't been decided what the best English word to refer to Ichang Lemon is. Generally "Ichang Lemon/Shangjuan" is sufficient to not leave ambiguity.

Yuzu isn't like an ordinary lemon. The rinds are a lot more tender and less bitter, you can almost eat them. For cooking all you need to do is just slice into segments, remove all the seeds (there are many of them but they're easy to remove because they're big seeds), and then just chop up some more. There's no need to remove the rind. Indeed, if you did there wouldn't be that much useful part of the fruit left. The cooked diced up fruits make a good citrus sauce to go with fish.

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange
Oct 18, 2022 21:36:29 GMT -5
wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type
Oct 18, 2022 21:38:28 GMT -5
wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
