Citrus General Discussion / Tangerine flowering now
« on: October 06, 2020, 01:40:06 AM »
My tangerines (clementines and california honey) are in full bloom for the last two weeks.  What to do?
I did not pick all of the fruits until late June.  Usually they put out flowers in late March.  This March they had very little flowers,  but for the last two weeks they flower very heavy. 

Any Southern California citrus grower run into this situation? 

Should I take all little fruitlets off the trees? 

Thank you, Cham

NOTE:   My navel orange, tango tangerine and  Florida honey tangerine bloomed in March as normal
