Murcott Mandarin Season 2018: what we’re looking for in the fruit

With less than 4 weeks until Murcott Mandarin harvest commences at our citrus orchards in Gayndah, ‘fruit set’ – where the tree flowers turn into fruit – has been good. We’ve got 70 – 80% fruit on the trees, and ongoing pest management programs have been successful resulting in clean fruit across the orchard.

At this stage we’re monitoring colour and maturity, with warm days and cold nights bringing out some excellent colour in the fruit. Harvest is expected to begin any time from the last week of June. The majority of the crop will be exported to China, but there will still be plenty of beautiful Murcotts for Australian consumers to enjoy!
