Looks good frank. I'm eating the last of my Tango mandarines now. My one year old tree produced about 50 fruit!

My Golden Nugget start in April and ends in late June. Fang was saying the UC Riverside have Develop different season GN maybe there is one that extends into late summer.

Thanks, can I ask about leaf miners in your orchard?  Is it a problem for you?  How often and what do you spray with?  My trees are flushing now and I think I should spray for miners this year.  I got some spinosid and sprayed once but then it rained.  So I dont know if I should reapply or wait a month or two?

Spaugh,
there's plenty of discussions about leafminers in this forum, here's one of them I found using the above forum's search tool:

http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=21507.0

By the way, I've had my share of problems combating leaf miners in the last 2 years; and starting this season, based on the above link's discussion, I started using "Macho 2.0" beginning last December. (They attack my citrus trees earlier and earlier seems like).
So, the result is yet to be seen... (so far so good).

Good luck with yours!
Sam

Thanks for the link.  Will have to look into those products.  There is an old citrus orchard down the way from me that is no longer being maintained or watered but is still alive and growing fruit for a decade now.  Im sure it is the cause of all the leaf miners.  Amazing the citrus trees can survive through droughts in a very hot inland location on the side of a hill (no ground water).  Tough trees....

JF: What is your source for the Temecula mandarin?

I have read a bit about this one and have seen it called Temecula Sweet or Temecula Ugly. Sounded like only one grower has these planted and they are infected with Tristeza. Is there a source for trees?
