OK Andy, What the heck is a "Satsuma"?, I have never heered of that. My guess though would be some variety of apples. Dont you folks in LA. have Craw-Dad trees ready to harvest about this time-o year?. I am a-hankerin for a crawdad pie.Originally posted by admin

Well, like some other trees they seem to have bumper crop years and then "rest and recover" years. I did start early this year with the fertilization. I started off by replacing the mulch (cypress) and add a couple inches to it - then I added a nice spread of Osmocote (3mo slow feed pellets) - very cheap -- just a handful.
Then I placed fruit tree plant spikes all around the drip line of the tree. I probably used 4 for the whole tree (one N, S, E, W of the main trunk) --- again very cheap but effective. I had the largest crop ever --- with this one tree yielding over 150 satsumas. Remember to watch the rain and not to overwater.
Hope this helps, J
