If I'm correct, one's a lemon, and the other is a blood orange.

I wouldn't directly compare the two as I don't interchange them for usage.

Definatly Meiwa kumquat  and New Zealand lemonade.  They are the only 2 that produced fruit.  I am waiting for the others to fruit.  We will see after that which is my f[avorite citrus.

Containerman I see you are growing the complete Gold series.  In general do all of them taste about the same or does one stand out.

This year will be my first season with fruit from my Yosemite and Shasta. The Tahoe is a nice blend of sweet and slight tart flavor. The Gold Nugget is sweeter than the tahoe.

I have the Tahoe, Nugget, and the Shasta.  I need the Yosemite to fill out the series.

Millet do you taste a significant difference between Tahoe, Shasta, and Golden Nuggets?

I will likely settle on only one or two mandarins.  Right now I already have Xie Shan, Tango and Sumo/Shiranui/Deokopan in-ground in my greenhouse, so one of them will have to go at some point, and I'm certainly willing to replace any with a better variety.   I have kishu, owari, shasta gold, page growing in containers as possible candidates.  Waiting to try more fruit before I decide.

For me the number one is Kinnow, super taste and ripe fruit keeps quality on tree for a long time.

I agree with many growers that Kishu is a good tasting citrus.  However. the fruit is so small that one has to eat 3 at a time.  I tossed my Kishu out and replaced it with Gold Nugget.

You made a mistake there Millet. I have grown all the gold varieties & they are OK at best.

Agree with Millet, Kishu is too small that i usually give it away for kids.

Since I have 4 grandchildren that live near me I'm keeping my Kishu since they love them.   :)

Owari is very good.  First mandarin I've grown and so far still my favorite of the ones I've grown myself.  I like the tartness.
