(Citrus reticulata ‘Imperial’)
The Imperial mandarin is a very popular commercial variety that’ll be right at home in the backyard, too. The overall tree is medium sized, growing from 2 – 4m tall with a nice, upright and compact growth habit. The leaves are quite pretty with their narrow, pointed shape and lush green colour. It would make a lovely feature tree that also happens to provide excellent quality fruit.
The fruit itself is medium-sized with quite a strong and sweet flavour. The segments can also be quite juicy, too. Imperials also have a thin outer skin that’s relatively easy to peel.
