that's a whopper..how does it taste?

Just curious who grows the largest variety of mandarins/tangerines.

Here's the different mandarins listed per CCPP budwood/Citrus Variety Data:
-> Mandarin-Clementine
-> Mandarin-Satsuma
-> Mandarin-Tangelo
-> Mandarin-Tangor
-> Mandarin-Other

There are over 100 different varieties identified here so there should be many people who grow one or more of these.

Would like to see a photo of your large fruit and how much it weighs. I will take some photos of my whoppers and post later.

I will start with one of my larger Kiyomi Tangor.
1) Kiyomi, weight is 347 grams, see photo of fruit.



Can anyone beat this one ?? Please post your large fruit.

Some of my Shasta were very large. One of my Shasta tree only carry 4 fruits, very good tasting. Thong Dee pomelo is right next.

luak, now that's a big Shasta. I have one tree in a pot and it had 5 fruits but they were all about the size of Tango. I wanted it to be big like yours.

I just bought a tango, with a same additional label as sugar belle saying it has greening resistance.. what are your thoughts on tangos resistance and also your opinion of its fruit quality??

True, I figured when the Guinness people review the request, they will do the leg work. I wanted to see if we had some winners before they actually make the new category.
It seems they like to have someone submit a big one so they can start off with one entry and others will try to beat it. Right now I don't think there is any category for mandarins if you wanted to enter it for a record.

The only Guiness records category for citrus that I found was:
-Largest Orange
-Largest/heaviest grapefruit
-Largest/heaviest  pomelo/pummelo
-Heaviest lemon

I don't know why there is no mandarin yet, so I thought we should enter one so that one of our members from this forum could have the record.

Above picture is incorrect, wrong, itís not a Shasta. This is the correct variety, Yosemite Gold.
