Mandarin - Honey Murcott (Grafted)

3's Edible Fruits
Update: 2531 days 23hrs

Aug 2012 - No idea why it died considering neighbouring trees are doing just fine. May be due to root competition?

 

The Honey Murcott is technically not a mandarin, but rather a tangor - a mandarin/orange hybrid. The exact parentage is unknown, but it is believed to have originated from a US Department of Agriculture breeding program. These are sweet and juicy fruit, very more-ish! The fruit matures late in the Australian mandarin season.

This tree is part of our citrus hedge - a row of citrus trees planted along a north-west facing boundary fence at 1m spacing. The plan is for the trees to grow into an effective hedge that will be kept pruned to about 2m high. This particular tree is partially overshadowed by our house, and receives morning sun only. We prepared the planting area for the citrus hedge by incorporating "fruit & veg" soil mix into our existing sandy soil. Mushroom compost was worked into the bottom of the planting hole which was then backfilled with more "fruit and veg" mix. The area was lightly mulched with mushroom compost, leaving the area about 8cm around the trunk clear.

Rob22's Edible Fruits
Update: 1399 days 4hrs

Comments: - Growing 2 trees in one hole as a space saving technique, this tree shares its space with an emperor. 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.
