My confused Kishu manadarin
Planted as a 5 gallon 4 years ago and transitioned for the past two years to 100% organic, this Kishu had a bizarre winter (and now Spring). This is it's 3rd fruiting cycle in five months -- this time heavier than ever. 90F in Jan, 90F in Feb, March all over the place and now back up to 80 today. I've stuck to only compost tea - and that well diluted - as an amendment all winter and spring.
Any harm come from all this growth & fruiting? Not sure I could do much but knock some fruit off, which is like pulling nails to me. This tangerine tastes and smells like heaven on earth and is my favorite thing I've ever grown, so I'd like to treat it right.
The Gold Nugget next to it has yet to fruit, but is in a growth/flower flush right now too. Weirdest winter weather ever!
