The Imperial mandarin was bred in Sydney in 1890. It is an early mandarin with pale smooth skin. The mandarin tree is a large evergreen shrub to small tree. It has glossy green dense foliage, perfumed white flowers, followed by attractive,tasty and nutritious fruit. Citrus have been grown as ornamental plants as well as for their fruit. The perfume of citrus blossoms is a delightful feature in the garden.
Citrus thrive in a sunny, humid environment, and have low frost tolerance. They grow best on well drained, fertile soil with regular watering. If they go through dryness at flowering time, they can drop the developing fruit. Prone to a few pests and diseases, they do need regular attention.
