We have been working intensively on selecting citrus trees that will, perform, impress and delight you. Our latest edition to the “best of ” collection is the Afourer mandarin.
Originally soured from Morocco in the 1980’s Afourer has gained favour with commercial orchardists and is a preferred favourite of the household shopper when it comes to selecting a mandarin for the fruit bowl.
Rag Free and virtually seedless are two of Afourer’s many endearing features, including its easy to peel disposition and an exquisite honey fragrant taste and a napkin required, juiciness.
Afourer is what we refer to as a moderately vigorous tree, it will grow to around 5metres, however it’s easily kept smaller with pruning. They are well suited to growing in pots and could be trellised on a balcony wall, or planted in an informal row to create an impressive and very Mediterranean looking hedge.
One tree will, in time, will produce more than enough fruit for a small family. Ripening in the late winter the fruit holds beautifully on the tree, well into the spring.
If you’re considering planting a Mandarin, you’d be well advised to consider the delicious and majestic Afourer.
