Mandarins are getting ripe yay!

Recommended Posts

OK, I have to admit, When I first saw the title I thought it was going to be a weird thread on Chinese people.

Cool you have a mandarin tree.  I have two oranges in pots, grown from seed that have another ten years before they produce.  Would love to have a lime and a mandarin too.  

Bought some mandarins at the store last week and they were dry and tasteless :girl-says-no-no-smiley-emoticon:

There are tons of orange and lemon trees here where I live and apricots, too. Nothing better than picking something and eating it right there. :)  I'm going out for breakfast in the morning, in my yard. hahaha

I've got a tree loaded with mandarins and the ones that are ripe are delicious! One thing I haven't killed is that tree!  :)  

I wish I had a mandarin tree but they don't grow where I live.  I love em though.

They'll grow in pots just fine.  They like cactus mix potting soil.  Living the dream in Alaska with 2 oranges and some grapes:snowt:

One of the houses my parents rented (Tustin, CA) had an orange tree and an avocado tree in the backyard. Both yielded absolutely beautiful and delectable fruit. I have not run across anything comparable in taste since.

The elder couple behind us used their entire backyard for their garden. They would share some of their harvest with us. I remember just how tasty they were.

No, we didn't cook our neighbors. I'm talking about the vegetables sillies :D

Enjoy your delicious gift from nature Cinn ;)

I lived in Florida for a while and they had mango tree's in a lot of yards in subdivisions. When walking around ( if they were ripe) I would just pick on from a tree and walk along slobbering juice all over the ground. Nothing like a fresh mango for sure!

Mandarin Oranges are also one of my favorites:nodl:

As a teen I lived in the tropics and everyone had multiple mango tree’s in their yard.. it was too many mango’s.. I wish I had a mango tree now..

im sub tropical, so I have a kaffir lime leaf, large plant that’s heaven if you like Thai flavours.. the actual limes are not great, the zest is good though.. and an Indian curry leaf tree, that I accidently nearly killed a few weeks back by putting the wrong fertiliser on it.. *blinks*

i had to neutralise the near death experience with multiple succulents, that I bought.. it worked, the nature spirits were happy..
