My lovely sister bought me an indoor (I do live in Portland) mandarin orange tree for my birthday about 3 years ago. I named him Barry and I love him dearly. He spent his first two years of life looking pretty much like a stick with a few leafs on it. Finally he bloomed. The smell was amazing. The blooms turned into little mandarins. I was able to harvest two mandarins off Barry! They were the best thing I think I have ever eaten. He is filling out more now and I’m hoping he will continue to make babies for me to enjoy.
