Flowers / Fruit
Medium to large size fruit, easy to peel, juicy and a great strong flavour, with few seeds. Fruit ripens late autumn, into early winter. Produces small, white sweetly perfumed flowers.
Strong growing tree, with upright growth. Increase the size of the fruit by thinning as the tree is developing.
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.
