Citrus in bloom
« on: April 17, 2018, 09:22:53 PM »
Very excited,  as I have some citrus in bloom this year, that have not fruited in the past.  One is an improved variety of tarrocco blood orange.  Another is kishu mandarin.  The one I am most surprised over, though is changsha mandarin.  I have only had tree 3 years, one in ground, and it is probably no more than 4-5 years old on it's roots.  I wasn't sure how this mandarin would do in AZ, since it is a cold hardy variety and not sold out here.  But, it has been an exceptionally strong grower for me.  I really feel like changsha would be a sought after variety if it wasn't so seedy.

Citrus looks a little stretchy, but healthy and congrats on the blooms.  Let us know how the fruit tastes in 8 months.
