Pineapple guava shedding leaves but still a couple of fruit left

6 Nov

The pulpy center has a very fragrant purfumey taste which my hubby described as soapy but to me, they taste like mixed, tropical, miscellaneous fruit flavour ­čÖé

Tango mandarin update

6 Nov

So I found an exploded mandarin today. Must be inconsistent watering. It smelled so good, the segments were juicy but very tart. Still, I can see potential!

Here’s the rest of the tree. Still looking good and healthy. 20121106-105038.jpg

Can’t wait for these to ripen. Seems to be a good year for citrus, recently picked some of my first ever homegrown lemons and hopefully these mandarins will be ready soon.
