Still blooming
« on: July 12, 2018, 06:51:28 PM »
I have one dekopon that is still throwing out blooms, even though it has fruit over golf ball size.  One kishu has put one one bloom, not yet open. I guess this is normal for young trees. This is the third time the dekopon has bloomed this year.

The dekopon can carry two crops simultaneously if the first bloom is a light fruit set.  I have found so far  that if the Dekopon blooms early in Feb with few blossoms it will set fruit again in June or July. This is referenced in South Korean literature of which I was skeptical at first. I have one now though that set fruit in Feb and now has flowered and set fruit again. The second crop will not suffer in quality as other citrus can and  provided the tree does not abort the new fruit.. the second crop will be ready April May...

My other two Dekopons are getting ready to bloom again also.
