Hard to establish bare rooted in Armidale, best planted out late spring after rooting in pots. Fuyu fruit are excellent, the equal of astringent Dai Dai Maru with the advantage of being able to be eaten while firm. Very heavy crops from both. | Steve Walkden-brown - Armidale, NSW 10-Jun-2007

What's there not to like about a Fuyu. Even kids like them!
I think it may be a bit to harsh for them here though.
Fruited 1st season in (was an advanced plant ) They got really sunburnt though.
In the Biolytix zone.
Nov 2010: still struggling with this one. Flowerd well and aborted all the fruit. I think it hates it here :(
Feb 2011: The hottest summer ever - and the tree a matter of weeks away from dying... :(
