Question & Answer

Does it have many seeds? From: BRISBANE QLD

Although it isn't a seedless mandarin it does not have many seeds. It is more known for having that loose and easy to peal skin and excellent rich flavour. If you plant it by itself so it can not cross pollinate with other mandarin trees you can reduce the seed count even more. #MandarinEmperor770

Sounds like you have a very successful mandarin tree there. For some unknown reason my mandarin produced no fruit this year but every other year it has. I get fruit mainly in summer though.

This mandarin was planted in 2006 and didn't do very well at all, until we made our chicken area larger and included it just inside the perimeter fence. The combination of chook poo and no grass made it take off.

Terrastrega's Edible Fruits

Just purchased my Emperor Mandarin tree few weeks ago. Its in a pot (38cm diameter & 35cm height). Potting mix is Richgrow rose and citrus potting mix, fertilise with bit of blood and bond and fruit and citrus premium fertiliser, and a dash of potash. I use Tee Tree Mulch but leave about 2 inches unmulched around the trunk of the tree.The nursery advice to water twice a day here on Brisbane, so I have been doing that so far.

It looks healthy and doing well. It gets full sun till about 2 - 3pm each day, after which it gets partial sun. Height of tree from soil line upwards is about 74cm. potting mix and fertiliser and so far all seem healthy.

Late 2013, Update: Tree is still in a big pot although not the dwarf varity. Has plenty of flowers and little fruit forming (Early September). Will be transfering in the ground after fruiting. Had not done so earlier as we were renting but now have bought a house and can start putting my trees in the ground!

June 2014: It is finally in the ground. trimmed it right back and now lots of new growth on it.

Rob22's Edible Fruits
Update: 1031 days 4hrs

Comments: - Growing 2 trees in one hole as a space saving technique, this tree shares its space with a honey murcott. This pairing of mid and late season crop mandarin should extend my growing season and hopefully sharing a hole they will naturally dwarf each other a bit so there individual crop shouldn't be as big hopefully reducing the wastedexcess fruit. I have these planted in my chook run with wire netting to provide protection from the chickens and hopefully keep well fertilised. Planted about 2 months ago, plenty of new growth, Already had to prune flowers from both to focus energy into growth this year maybe I will let them fruit a small crop next year.

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 258 days 21hrs

Comments: -

This is the second of my two mandarine trees, the other being an Imperial. Unknown rootstock as it was not identified on the tag.June 2016. This tree set as first fruit last season and in a couple of weeks will be picking its second crop.

It has not been as fruitful as the Imperial even though it is in the same environment and gets the same care. Nor  is it as vigorous however this may be the result of differing root stock. Its advantage is that  it will harvest later than the Imperial and thereby extend the season. Usual citrus management means that all my citrus are dealt with at the same time.

Dec 2017 A small crop of tasty sweet fruit. The tree suffers nitrogen deficiency more than the other citrus. A regular dose of iron chelate fixes that up
