Growing local

These are the earliest of my mandarines and Daley's list them as fruiting in April. In my last blog, I predicted a March harvest as I had some with blushes of colour. I was out watering this arvo and this beauty was ripe and ready. REALLY juicy and delicious and SUPER EARLY!! Home grown mandy's in February people

Beautiful Susan, Your Mandarin looks very much like my Okitsu wase (Satsuma), it is actually one of my favourites. I love the taste not to sweet and the skin firm and quite smooth, the shape of mine is more squashed down and bigger than other varieties.

Good to have an early mandarin Susan, is it the same as Okitsu wase (Satsuma).  The Miho Wase has a sort of pear shape where it attaches to the stem.  Does that one have a normal mandarin shape?
