Mine has blooms on it now too, as it does most years. I don't expect ripe fruit until early December at the earliest. Sometimes not until after the first of the year.

Jim123,

I noticed you're in CA too. I'm looking to buy a Satsuma to add to my collection of citrus. How old is your tree and how big does it get? Is it just as easy a fruit to grow in comparison to other citrus (oranges, lemons, limes)?

Thanks,
Lali

My tree is over 30 years old. It is on dwarf rootstock (I don't know which one). It is about four feet tall and at least as big around. Even as such a small tree, it provides an abundance of fruit, more than our family copnsumes by ourselves.
