Tree was established in our yard when we purchased our house. Not certain of variety, but I think it's an Imperial. Heavy cropper, delicious fruit but they tend to be quite small - I may thin some of the fruit this season

The kids love Mandarins, they just can't get enough.Imperial are good as they are easy to peel and taste good, but the seeds are annoying.

Gets lots of sun and heat from the brick wall, the plan is to do some kind of informal espalier. The planter box is bottomless.Got loads of flowers and fruit forming but cut them off to let it grow more before fruiting, it will need a couple more years...

Bought in pot from nursery.  Transplanted into a big pot.  It seems to be struggling.  Any advice?

I am a bit nervous about growing citrus as I have heard they are hard work, and I am a novice. The tree is growing slowly.

Still young.  Ants have been a bit of a problem but have put a sticky guard on the truck which seems to help.  Got a couple of fruit last year (which I probably should have culled).A few more fruit on at present.  Looking very healthy.

Easily the most successfull tree. It fruits for months and months with more fruit then you can eat. The taste is great but there are quite a few seds.

Developed fruit through a very hot summer and they were dissapointing - very dry and sunburnt. Later varieties may do better here.
