Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Shiranui Mandarin is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Description

Citrus reticulata 'Shiranui'

The Shiranui mandarin has become a giant of the Mandarin world. Originally named ‘Dekopon’ the Shiranui was introduced into the United States under the trademark name ‘Sumo®’ in 2011 and has become a widely recognized and highly desirable mandarin selection. Known for its extremely large size and bumpy skin with a large protruding nipple on the top of the fruit. Though not so pretty it makes up for its lack of beauty by being seedless, a prolific producer and packed with a wonderfully sweet, juicy and meaty flesh. The Shiranui is one of several of the next generation of mandarins. Other great selections like Gold Nugget, Pixie, and Page are quickly gaining home garden popularity. These fruits are full of flavor, very sweet, the perfect size and most often seedless. A long hang time on the tree allows for a 2-to-4-month harvest as the Shiranui mandarin just keeps getting better. Easy to peel, hard to eat just one.

Planting & Care
All Mandarins require good draining soil and full sun. If unsure of your drainage plant in a mound that is 24 inches tall and 4 feet wide or a raised bed that is 12 to 18 inches tall and 3 feet square. Mulch to 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 feet from the outside of the canopy. This is particularly important when mounding to keep the mound for settling before the trees root have established. Chose a location that receives as least 8 hours of direct sunlight. This is always best if it is a morning sun location as this is the drying sun and helps in both controlling moisture related diseases and faster warming after a cold winter night.
