Microcitrus hybrids from Saga University, Japan
This is an unauthorised copy of interesting photos previously on the website of Saga University .  As these pages have not been accessible for several years, I have reproduced some of the information here. You can see the species hybridised, and photos where available by clicking on the thumbnails. I have corrected a few spelling errors. See notes at the bottom of this page.

I have tried several times to contact Saga University for permission to reproduce these photos - and to ask for seeds - but without success. If anyone from the University ever reads this, I would love to hear from them. I look forward to more photos, seeds, and an invitation to visit their citrus collection!
