  • Patent number: PP28236
    Abstract: A new and distinct cultivar Citrus limon (L.) Brum.f. is provided which displays a substantially different time for initial fruit harvest than the standard ‘Primofiori’ cultivar (non-patented in the United States). The attractive juicy fruit of the new cultivar commonly is initially ready for harvest by about the end of March. This follows greatly the typical October initial harvest time for the ‘Primofiori’ cultivar. The new cultivar is a diploid, and displays a relatively dense spreading growth habit. The supply of the fresh fruit market for consumption, use in beverages, and in cooking is facilitated at an atypical season of the year by the new cultivar.

    Abstract: A new and distinct hybrid cultivar of finger lime plant named ‘UF SunLime’, characterized by precocious bearing trees containing intense red-colored, cylindrical-shaped fruits with a blunt protuberance on both ends and dark red ovoid to pyriform juice vesicles that detach easily from the locules. ‘UF SunLime’ produces annual crops of well-colored deep red fruit that do not require prolonged cold induction to express anthocyanin both internally and externally under Central Florida conditions. Both the rind and juice vesicles have enhanced anthocyanin accumulation. Additionally, the rind of ‘UP SunLime’ contains oil glands, and pleasantly fragrant oil can be released during cutting, especially with recently harvested fruit.
