Customer Tips & Reviews Mandarin - Imperial
WOLLONGONG WEST, NSW, Australia
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
GEROGERY, NSW, Australia
Planted Nov 2018, Flowereing already, knocked flowers off to get it better established.
MIDDLE RIDGE, QLD, Australia
Easy to grow and care for. Reliable cropper. Sweet fruit.
Bellbird Park, QLD, Australia
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.
I had this growing in our last home and it was a wonderful tree and a great bearer of sweet juicy fruit that survived on the tree well.When we moved into our new home I decided to give this another go.The original did take a long to fruit, I think abou...
WATERFALL, NSW, Australia
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...
Plonked it in with a bunch of compost and is very happy.
FERNTREE GULLY, VIC, Australia
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.

They are yummy but to tell if their ripe look at the colour
Mooloolaba, QLD, Australia
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.
WOOLLOONGABBA, QLD, Australia
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.
Upper Ferntree Gully, VIC, Australia
Prone to leaf curling and yellowing in winter due to the cold, but picksup again in spring and summer. Very healthy. Requires next to nopruning, except for removal of the occasional browned off twig.It hasn't fruited yet, but it has tried to. I l...
Developed fruit through a very hot summer and they were dissapointing - very dry and sunburnt. Later varieties may do better here.
