Seedless Kishu Mandarin

Citrus kinokuni mukakukishu

Adorable, irresistible and perfect for home gardening, Seedless Kishu is juicy with sweet flavor. Said to be an ancient species of Chinese origin, prized for fragrance and taste. Diminutive, golf-ball-sized fruit is easy to peel and divide into sections. Arching branches are lined with highly-fragrant, white flowers in late winter to spring. Fruit ripens mid-season, December to January. Small stature makes this a wonderful container, conservatory or small garden specimen. Evergreen.
