Mandarin tree update

Look! We're gonna have a bonanza harvest of sweet mandarins soon. This is the Texas satsuma tree (Citrus unshiu 'Miho') that my son, Patrick, gave me for Mother's Day in 2004. It's put on fruit in 2006, 2008, 2010 and now this year. Cool, eh? But more of a miracle is that I'VE KEPT IT ALIVE ALL THESE YEARS! Last week, I gave it some Rose-Glo organic food. Poor thing. Besides some compost on top, that's all it's probably had to eat since 2004.

That certainly is a pretty tree and you are goring it in a pot. I am tempted. Must look out for it. I have a lots of citrus in pots including the Calamondin which is the tree you see in China during Chinese New Year, It flowers and fruits in the late winter.
