Citrus reticulata Mandarin 'Emperor'
With pale orange fruit and excellent flavour, Emperor is a great eating mandarin variety which is easy to peel. Features glossy green foliage, yellowing during Winter.
Grow in a warm, full sun position in well drained rich soil. Mandarins are susceptible to attack from citrus pests like leaf miner and scale. Use appropriate treatment if detected. Prevent pest attack by growing in ideal conditions. Fertilise in Spring and Summer with a high nitrogen fertiliser.
Mandarins love to be grown in containers. Great for kids to pick and eat.
