Citrus, Mandarin ‘Kara’
Evergreen, Edible fruit, Trees
Varieties with orange-red peel are usually called tangerines. Many mandarins tend to bear heavily in alternate years. Some are always seedless, while others produce more seeds; the latter give seedier fruit if pollinated by another mandarin or mandarin hybrid or by ‘Valencia’ orange.
Large fruit (2 1/2 in. wide) for mandarin. Tart-sweet, aromatic flavor when ripened in warm interior climates. Ripens winter to spring. From one season to another may be very seedy or nearly seedless. In form, the tree resembles ‘Owari’ satsuma, one of its parents. Spreading, often drooping branches with large leaves. Grows to a rounded 15–20 ft., half that size as a dwarf.
