Flying Dragon

I'm really excited about this unusual shub we picked up at Cloud Mountain Farm this past weekend. It's a super hardy citrus relative from China with really wicked thorns called "Flying Dragon" (poncirus trifoliata). Of course ours didn't come with fruit on it, but I'm hopeful that someday it may actually produce. The fruit is supposed to be super sour, no good for eating fresh, but aparently it can be used for marmalade or the juice can be used like lemon juice in cooking. We haven't planted it yet, still trying to decide the best place for it...
