A few more pictures from my second visit to the Tintori Nursery in Pescia, in September 2007.

Fortunella polyandra, Malayan Kumquat. Fruit 2cms long
A hybrid of Citrus ichangensis X Poncirus trifoliata
Faustrime, fingerlime x lime hybrid
Microcitrus papuana growing as a tall densely-leaved shrub, but I couldn't find any flowers or fruits.
Probably the same variety as a fruiting plant at Pepinieres Baches. Click here to compare.
Finger lime growing as a dense mound of foliage with some unusally large leaves.
These microcitrus species may be over-fertilised, compared to their native conditions. They seem to be producing much leafy growth but no fruits.
