kassia lime

BJ starts with ...
Does anyone know anything about the Kassia Lime Daleys are about to release? They say it is a bright orange fleshed lime with a propper green skin. It would be interesting to know more.

I wonder if it has a similar parentage to "Australian Blood Lime" - a mandarine and finger lime cross...

A picture is on the Lime page here: http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=1116.0

It looks like it could be a lime x mandarin. I was wondering if it was something found in other countries in Asia and particularly useful in any foods etc?

I have the Aust blood lime. Crops well and early, unlike the sunrise lime, the finger lime x kumquat, but the sunrise does have a nice upright habit most suitable for pots.

BJ, how do Aus. Blood Lime and Sunrise Lime compare for taste, as they look great? (The Kassia looks good too.)

The blood is like a round finger lime with a bit sweeter taste. I didnt find it particularly limey. I can easily eat them out of hand skin and all. The plant is quite a heavy bearer. I've not yet tasted the sunrise, as it seems a much more shy bearer, but i'd expect mostly the kumquat genes to shine through.

Yes, the bloodlime is closer to fingerlime, I would say not as good as a very good finger lime, but better than some of the more bitter ones. The Sunrise lime fruit is more like a milder Fortunella Kumquat(Nagami or Meiwa.

Thanks for info. They sound pleasant tasting enough in their own right even though they're not "Limey".

I've just been reading about "Rangpur Limes" - they sound good (cold tolerant,bright orange in colour, look like a mandarine, strong acid lime flavour.) Does anyone grow these - is it as good as the information available?

good to hear phil. great germinators with fresh seed - slugs got a couple of my seedlings.
VF see https://www.daleysfruit.com.au/forum/rangpur-lime/#61528 and you can contact me for seed which ripen from mid winter through early spring
I like sunrise limes - citrus sherbet eating out of hand - my tree is still small and I found 28s like them so i only got leftovers last season

Hi, I've been trying to find out what this is because it is growing in my backyard, and I assumed it was a regular lime. But it is orange inside; extremely orange. And it tastes like a really bland mandarin. I've already put aside seeds from it and there are quite a few more fruit on the tree, which'll be picked soon. The tree is about 3m tall but not very big.

Hi there,

Just moved into a new house and have these growing. Can anyone help me ID them? I think Kassia Lime. Taste is sour and sweet.

Thanks!

Are you in Houston Texas, not Euston NSW ?
Might be an unripe Calamondin, fruit are about 3cm, sour mandarin type flavour. It's a classic Philippines citrus variety, ripens to be light orange color, loose skin, edible peel.

I am not positive but I believe my lime tree is Kassia. It has thin green peel, juicy orange flesh, tastes like mandarin orange/lime, seeds, long thorns and is just now prolific. Does anyone know the time to fruit maturity and expected size (i.e. when to harvest and whether I'm wrong and I'll see the peel change color)? I harvested my 1st at ~4cm. An oddity is that I'm in the US and I can't trace where it came from (though my wife deals with specialist nurseries throughout this country). P.S. It made a good gin & tonic nonetheless.

I'd guess you have a type of Rangpur Lime.
Fruit sounds the same, plant is lemon/lime like, with more pointed leaf tips than either other. New growth is tinted red/purple, fruit about golf ball size.

Thanks for the reply. Rangpur was one of my guesses. But most images I've seen are orange when ripe. I suppose only time will tell if mine will change color. But I've seen some references that orange color is not required. I don't see the purplish new growth and there are large/long thorns. There were a few seeds and I've heard Rangpurs have many (though my fruits may be immature). But Rangpur is still in the running as the answer.

Citrus often don't colour when matured. I've eaten perfectly ripe mandarins that are still green in the skin.

I'm beginning to suspect it's Kassia rootstock that may not have been grafted onto. I'm seeing quite a few commercial references online concerning increasing use of it as resistant/hardy rootstock.

Peel just started turning orange. Those who guessed Rangpur are likely on the nose. Thanks for all the help/discussion.
