Mandarin - Emperor (Grafted)

Rob22's Edible Fruits
Update: 1406 days 0hrs

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.
