I'm in search of a Mandarinquat Tree. I haven't been able to find one around town (west side). If you see one, will you let me know where I can find one? Thanks!
Try Baker's Nursery at 3414 N. 40th Street, 602-955-4500. Joy does their ordering and if they do not have one in stock, she may be able to order it for you.
I bought an Indio Mandarinquat at Bakers in Dec. (4 Winds)
What does a Mandarinquat taste like?
Update I stopped by Baker's today after hitting the grocer. No Indio Mandarinquots are left. :-( sorry
thanks. saved me a trip.
Thanks for the replies. I'll try Bakers again. Maybe they have gotten a new shipment from the last time I checked.
I've only had 1 Mandarinequat, and loved it. The peel was sweet and the orangelike flesh was a bit tart. I liked it :)
I have room for one more tree, and that is what I would really like. :) With that one, I'll have 25 trees in my yard. 22 of which are fruit/nut trees. As soon as I get that one in, I just get to sit back and reap the "rewards" right?
"as soon as I get that one last tree..." I don't know if fruit growing hobbyists ever just have one last tree! Its an addiction. ;)
We bought our Mandarinquat from Greenfield citrus in Mesa.
I may have interest in one of these real soon. Let me know if you have any feedback on any local suppliers.
I may look into Mesquite Valley Grower's in Tucson, where I have had some luck & found a nice Spice Zee Nectaplum several yrs ago...

The first ones started to ripen on my one year old four weeks ago, still in its container. Fairly prolific. Quarter sized oblong fruits.
Skin is sweet like a kumquat and I found the flesh also sweet-tart orangish-mandarin flavor. Very nice. BUT, very seedy. And if the skin gets too thick or dries out from not being eaten as soon as it is picked it starts to get leathery. Ripe ones will fall off in your hand without much effort.
