Cox is a resilient, self-pollinating, frost-tolerant mandarin that can be planted in soils that have had citrus in before, and in poorer soils than some other varieties. It is often used as a 'rootstock' for other citrus to encourage them to fruit more. It grows to a neat size that will fit into smaller gardens.


When this writer was a very young gardener, she only ever encountered mandarins in tins - due to growing up on the other side of the world where the idea of picking tropical fruits fresh from the tree was as fanciful as any tale in her storybooks. The fairytale can now come true!
