Flowers / Fruit
The fruit is more like a mandarin cross orange. The large fruit is flat in shape, with a tight skin and can be seedy. It has a distinct flavour, unlike other mandarins, and its juice can be a great alternative to oranges juice. The fruit ripens late, August into September, making it an ideal addition to the home orchard. Produces small, white sweetly perfumed flowers.
Strong growing, upright tree.
Citrus trees need a lot of nitrogen and potassium, and small amounts of phosphorous and trace elements. In Perth’s sandy soils a suitable fertiliser programme providing all the trees nutrient requirements is essential. Spread mulch around the tree to cool the soil in summer and reduce moisture loss. Apply sufficient water to keep the soil moist to a depth of 30 to 50cm. During the first growing season apply a commercial, slow release fertiliser, following label instructions for application rates. Frequent applications of small amounts of fertiliser will stimulate growth and bring the tree into bearing sooner. Liquid fertilisers containing trace elements, compost and fish can be applied to the foliage of the trees monthly to boost growth and address trace element deficiencies.
