I planted a seedless kishu mandarin at the beginning of the year and it's produced around 20 mandarins. I've just tried a couple and the flesh inside is very dry: desiccated.
The skin still hasn't turned fully orange yet, still some green on it. However, I would have expected it to be juicier inside.
I live in Arizona so it's hot and dry but I've diligently made sure that it's had plenty of water all summer. Edit: I've been giving it about 2 to 5 gallons per day in the summer.
This is my first Kishu tree so not sure what to expect. Is this normal?
