These are the ten seedlings resulting from my Faustrimedin X Citrus maxima 'Goliath' hybridisation attempt. See my Hybridizing Citrus web-page.
Faustrimedin = Australian Finger Lime x Calamondin = Citrus australasica x Citrus madurensis
C. maxima    = Pummelo
February 2004
All re-potted. Photos are about the same scale.  Front two rows of pots are same size as back row in August.
The purple top of seedling 1.
Pummelo seedlings do not have this coloration, so this must be a true hybrid
