Help ID Satsuma mandarin variety
« 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.

How do you rate Kiyomi Tangor, when compared with Satsuma or Gold nugget?

Kiyomi is a larger fruit, very productive tree/graft.
But not as sweet as Gold Nugget or Satsuma. Seems to be more milder taste (not as sweet and no tangy taste).
In the comparison photo, I would say I like the fruits in following order.
1. Kishu
2. Gold Nugget
3. Kiyomi
4. Iyomikan

Thanks for the info.  I am thinking to get the bud from CCPP.  People mentioned they didn't like Iyomikan's taste and it has a tough segment skin.

I agree, Iyomikan is not that good. I am grafting over the branch with sumo.
Make sure to get Shiranui now if you are getting from CCPP.
