Kuno Wase Mandarin Orange
One of the earliest ripening forms of Mandarin Orange, Kuno Wase Mandarin Orange produces abundant crops of attractive, bright orange fruit. Great for fresh eating, it is sweet, flavorful and easy to peel. Reportedly cold hardy down to 25 degrees.
Latin Name: Citrus unshiu
Site and Soil: In spring, summer and fall, keep your potted Citrus in a location with 1/2 day to full sun. In the winter, place your plant in a well-lit room. Potting soil should be coarse, acidic, and well-drained.
RootstockDescription: Flying Dragon is a hardy and very dwarfing rootstock for Citrus that induces very early flowering and fruit production. Trees grown on Flying Dragon will rarely exceed 5 ft. in height and will often produce fruit the year they are planted.
Pollination Requirements: Kuno Wase is self-fertile. You can help it set fruit by taking a small brush and moving pollen from flower to flower.
Hardiness: Kuno Wase should be hardy to at least 25 degrees F. We recommend moving it to a well-lit and protected location in the fall before frosts occur.
