Kishu Mandarin

Been in bloom for 2 months now. I'm hopeful its old enough that some of the fruit sets, no drop lately and the fruit is larger in size.

    Just pictures, the Kishu has no commercial value, I believe half dollar size, puffy skin, sweet and nearly seedless....a favorite of japanese households, not vigorous or cold hardy though, waiting to try

    Kishu is great. I should have planted it 2 years ago. Now I am thinking of grafting it to my existing trees.

    No commercial value? I picked up a small bag a few weeks ago at Whole Foods. Would buy them again in a heartbeat. They were a bit pricey though. Not for everyone I suppose, but I am willing to pay for GOOD fruit.

    Thats what I read, I'm surprised you can buy it, the knock on them (haven't tried one yet) is they are small and don't travel well

    They are sold here in the Bay too. We buy them at a local whole foods store in Walnut Creek near John Muir Hospital. They are expensive though - $6 for a small bag vs Clementines that are dirt cheap.
