US-942 is a cross between Sunki Mandarin and Flying Dragon and is HLB tolerant and cold hardy.  When ripe US 942 has flavors of both sweet and sour, with very little to no trifoliate flavor or after taste. The fruits skin is soft and thick similar to a mandarin. The flesh is juicy and taste comparable to a calamondin or kumquat but more rich and complex flavors. US942 has few seeds and has a bright orange color inside and out when ripe. Mature fruit is the size of a ping pong ball and is one of the best tasting trifoliate hybrids.

Please keep in mind that we are unable to ship any citrus to AZ, CA, HI, FL, LA, TX.  These restrictions are due to USDA Agricultural laws. We do ship growing supplies such as potting mix, fertilizer and non citrus material items to AZ, FL, LA, and TX.

  • We ship via UPS Ground
  • We are currently only shipping on Mondays until Spring
  • If your order is placed after 9am on Monday it will likely ship the next week.
  • Trees may need to be topped or pruned to fit in the box.
  • Tracking number will be emailed to you when your order ships, please check your spam folder if you don't see an email.

These are a few questions we are often asked and their answers:

  • Why dont you ship to FL or CA?
    We aren't able to due to USDA restrictions, we wish we could but we can't.
  • When will my tree fruit?
    We graft with certified mature buds so our trees are capable of flowering and producing fruit in the first season, but will definitely flower and produce fruit in the second season. We recommend removing fruit for the first couple years to allow the tree to focus on branching and growing roots.
  • What does this variety taste like?
    In most cases the original Budwood program we purchased Certified buds from does not offer much in the way of descriptions or taste information. We then grow those buds out and continuously harvest new buds and then sell young trees so we simply don't always end up with fruit to try so unless its listed, we don't know what they taste like.
  • Do you have anymore of these available?
    We try hard to add inventory when it grows large enough, if a product shows as 0 available please click the notify button to be emailed as soon as we add inventory to the site.
  • What rootstock is this grafted onto?
    We use a handful of rootstock varieties for different reasons when we are grafted. If the variety says "Dwarf" then that variety is grafted to Flying Dragon. If it is not listed as Dwarf then we either used a standard rootstock or semi dwarfing rootstock. When fully mature the difference between Dwarf and Standard is only about 80% difference, it just takes dwarf longer to grow that large. You can maintain tree size through pot size and effective pruning.
