The tree was 20 shipping 13 so $33.00 not bad deal I thought.

We anticipate shipment by the end of March.  At this point, we plan on
shipping on the 24th of March, unless weather prevents us from doing so.

RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

Wow this is very tempting. I've been waiting for four winds to update their stock but maybe I'll go out on a limb, pun intended, and try these guys out!

RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

Tantanman I was very happily surprised I didnt expect much for the price but glad to see ppl like the tree as much I do. Just hope to get fruit next year I want it to get bigger first. I feel for ppl in quarantined states but I understand why they are doing it. Just prey they will find a cure for citrus greening one day.This forum is the best thing I've ever found so many intelligent talented people with citrus and another Plants. I feel im making a lot of new friends here by sharing our love of plants and nature that's what it's all about Having fun making new friends
Peace

Tcamp,
good luck with your new tree! i am excited because Harris is shipping 2 shiranui to me on monday via fedex. i live on the eastern shore of md.
one will be a gift for a friend and the other becomes part of the container grove. by the looks of your tree i should be very happy! i am thinking of buying a xie shan soon, if this goes well.

RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

Tcamp very nice healthy looking tree congrats . It's in good hands. Don't worry about the size , looks the same size as my nules clementine 2 years ago and now it takes up a quarter of my greenhouse .I hope you get fruit soon . The fruit look really cool.

Tcamp..Beautiful I must say!

Just goes to show you how long I have to wait for warm days..I'm still waiting for mine...Probably another month...:((((
But, I would rather have them there growing robustly and then sent here when I can leave then in full sunlight outdoors.

Just received shiranui trees from Harris citrus today. As Tcamp said, overall healthy, some yellowing. I am happy. Repotted into 5 gallon containers. One tree is 3ft from soil line, the other 2 1/2 ft. Nice branching with new growth starting . Harris answered e-mails promptly and delivery was on time as promised. I will use them again.

RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

So I fell in love with Sumo Oranges and now want my own. My Dekopon is coming via FedEx and arrives in Seattle tomorrow! Hopefully it's not too stressed after the long trip. Does anyone have any advice for the first day/week? Should I repot? Water right away? Lots of sun?

 o
RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

I would repot because the pots are not that big, and also it will need water. Will you keep it outside or inside? If outside keep it out of direct sun for a week or two until it acclimates to your climate. I am just starting to put mine in direct sun and it is doing fine. Good luck. Kev

I ordered mine a couple of weeks ago and I just got an email today that they will arrive via fedex tomorrow!

RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

Mike, maybe you should give them a ring. Just to make sure they didn't slip up on your order.

RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

Thanks for the advice @kev122. My plant arrived at 11am. I went out and bought a clay pot and catcus potting mix. It will be inside-only for now, but right in front of this south facing window. I notice my dekopon has leaves all the way down the trunk, while some of you have more of a bush only at the top. Here are some things I've been wondering:
*are these grafted onto rootstock? (It looks like they might be, but I can't tell.)
*anyone using a grow light, or planning to?
* what fertilizers are you planning to use?


 o
RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

Awesome tree new citrus guy mine had a tag on it saying c35 rootstock so I would say yes. Everyone has verynice trees sorry you havent got your tree mike I would call or email them.

RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

My trees arrived from Harris yesterday! Looks like there is some slight cold damage to the new growth on the shiranui but nothing serious. I am glad it wasn't worse given the recent cold snap. I am very impressed! Shiranui on the left, Meiwa kumquat on the right. I put a yardstick in the pic for reference. I will hopefully be potting them up sometime in the next week.

RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

These posts got me thinking that I want a new tree as well. I like their size and price! $20 really isnt bad for trees like these, and the shipping is reasonable. I notice that the stems are much more elongated and thinner than the tree I have from Four Winds - are there any advantages/disadvantages to the longer stem? Will they branch out more below the canopy?

(I am thinking about purchasing an Owari Satsuma)

RE: Ordered Shiranui/Sumo/Dekopon From Harris Citrus

I dont know Garrett will keep u posted for the price there great. Mine is still doing well.
