I don't know how to add a new plant. The Botanical Gardens in Athens, Georgia has several of these and the database here has nothing on it. Google says that it has been around since the early 1900's.

George, I posted over on the Plant Database forum for the administrators and gave them a link back here so hopefully someone will be able to add the plant to the database. I found this page saying it's a cross of 3 different types of citrus: http://hardycitrus.blogspot.co... I'd never even heard of a Citrangequat! There are apparently only 3 cultivars, one named for a city in Texas, one for a county in Georgia and Thomasville, named after the city in Georgia! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
