mandarin orange question

Zone houston, texas | delphi22 added on September 27, 2017 | Answered

We have had our mandarin orange tree for 5 months and it came with fruit on it, but they have not turned orange. The plant is about 24" high and planted in a 24" chimney flue and planted in citrus soil I got from the nursery. Should i remove these fruits, so it can start next season?

It is likely that the tree isn't quite mature enough to bear mature fruit. Transplanting could have also prolonged the fruiting. They seem to like to be rootbound, and snug in the pot before they will correctly bear fruit.
