Dwarf Mandarin - Emperor

Citrus reticulata

Mandarin Emperor Fruit

Fruit Trees > Citrus Trees > Mandarin Tree > Dwarf Mandarin - Emperor
The fruit has a pale orange skin that is inclined to be puffy. Excellent flavour however the fruit can be prone to drying if harvest is delayed. Loose skin that is very easy to peel. Most popular mid season variety. Flying Dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen. Trees will grow to about half the normal citrus size. Flying Dragon rootstock also adds cold hardiness and grows well in heavier soils, like Trifoliatia rootstock.
Other Names: Citrus
