Title: Help ID Satsuma mandarin variety
Post by: sc4001992 on November 06, 2019, 07:55:20 AM
Just wondering if anyone else had a cluster of fruits on one branch that has so many fruits ( total of 24).
This is a Satsuma scion branch that is about 2 years old on a grapefruit tree.

The fruits on this branch is smaller than normal but the taste is still good. I got the scion from UCR budwood but lost the tag. Can anyone help identify this Satsuma ?

I had a similar issue with oroblanco branch that had 110 fruits (normal size) on one large branch, it ended up braking off just as the fruits were yellow and almost ripe.

I have a few kishu trees with fruit now, they are smaller fruits.
These are maybe 1.5x the size (ranges from 1-1/2" to 2" diameter). Still taste good but not as sweet as kishu.
I will take a photo of the kishu fruit next to this one for comparison. This fruit may normally be slightly larger but due to the big cluster it might have smaller t than normal fruit. This is the first year the branch had any fruits so I didn't notice it until I looked up into the tree.
Somehow I had mislabeled this one as Kiyomi Tangor which is a big fruit, size of an orange.
