Citrus reticulata

Description of plant at maturity:
The Honey Murcott offers a sweet and juicy flesh with honey undertones. Great yield. Fruit keeps well in the fridge.

The Honey Murcott produces large fruit with bright orange skin. It is sweet and juicy with great flavour, but tends to be quite seedy.

The tree is of medium size with a spreading habit and quite a few thorns.

Main Harvest:
Honey Murcott produces a very large yield during Spring and Summer.

This mandarin is perfect as a snack and for use in desserts.

Care: Water during the warmer months, especially when fruits are forming. In containers water every three to four days, more often in hot weather. Do not water the trunk. Fertilise in Spring and late Summer - early Autumn with a fertilizer high in nitrogen but do not allow to touch the trunk. Prune in late Spring, removing inside weak growth and to shape the tree.

Planting: Add organic matter to the soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from the container and place in the hole so the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly, and water in well, even if the soil is moist. If planting in a container, use a premium potting mix. The container should be a minimum size of 60cm x 60cm.

Watering: Moderate water requirement.

Position: Plant in a sunny position with well drained soil and sheltered from strong winds.

Height: 4m
