W. Murcott Mandarin Tree

Availability: Out of stock

The W. Murcott Mandarin (Citrus x reticulata 'W. Murcott') is also known as Afourer. It is one of the oldest varieties of Mandarins produces in Florida and is more chill tolerant than other Mandarin.

You’ll be delighted by the white blossoms and their heavenly fragrance! Pollinators and even hummingbirds are drawn to them and you’ll enjoy keeping their fragrance close by as they perfume inside your home or seating areas! The glossy evergreen foliage is another bonus, looking fantastic all year long and adding pinpoint shade or privacy to your outdoor spaces as well!

A precocious fruiting machine, you’ll enjoy your first harvest as early as 3-4 years of age! Ripening in the autumn, the tree filled with glistening orange fruit is a sight to behold! It is generally seedless and has a thin rind with bronze speckles around a deep orange juicy fruit which is easy to peel and separate the sections!

Planting and Application:

Fragrant broadleaf evergreens make fantastic hedges and privacy plantings! Year-round screening and juicy fruit are always welcome, so plant up a row of citrus trees along your property line and we’re sure your neighbors won’t mind! These are healthy snacks and kid-friendly treats! Their small size makes Mandarin perfect edible gardening trees too!

These trees are more cold tolerant than other mandarins and can be grown in containers in northern climates or in the ground in southern areas of the country. If you live in a colder climate, simply bring your tree indoors near a sunny window, and let the intoxicating citrus scent brighten your home during cold winter days.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

W. Murcott has a tendency to produce fruit in alternate years if the fruit is allowed to remain on the tree. Like all fruit trees, full sun is ideal for the most flowers and therefore fruit! Provide an excellently drained location and moderate watering schedules, allowing the roots to dry out between watering. It’s also important to provide regular fertilizer.

  • Full Sun
  • Moderate Moisture
  • Regular Fertilizer
  • Well-Drained Slightly Acidic Loose Soil

The W. Murcott Mandarin will quickly become your favorite citrus tree! Indoors or out, these smaller, space-saving flowering evergreens add flavor, healthy fruit and heavenly fragrance to your garden spaces, so order yours today at NatureHills.com!
