I growed these! Tango mandarins and Meyer Lemon. February 2015 already?!

12 Feb

Yay, first decent fruit from my trees. I have to say I have been watering and caring for this tango mandarin for many years and only now I can say it is producing edible fruit and quite a few for a small tree.

The Meyer lemon tree I have only had for a year. So impressed I get one big fat juicy lemon.

Hope I have many more happy citrus years to come.

I might’ve had a couple of fruit before but this year has been my most successful. Haven’t done anything different but it just looks happier. I got at least half a dozen real mandarins. Pretty tasty!

I’ve had this tree for a couple of years and have finally been eating the fruits of my labour. Taste quite sharp but still yummy.

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.

Nature gave me a very tasty giant strawberry but also took away my only Tango mandarin

Growing these in a long wooden box. Pleasantly surprised to find this giant hiding.

But unfortunately, the recent April showers must’ve knocked off my last Tango mandarin. These have been growing forever. I feel like it has taken at least six months to get the this size. Bummer I found him on the floor.
The other tiny mandarins also dropped off the tree recently.
