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.
