Cleopatra Mandarin, or Citrus reshni, is among the tastiest citrus growable in containers--and it's also quite hardy. In fact, Cleopatra Mandarin roots are sometimes used as rootstock for less-vigorous citrus trees, such as lemons and grapefruit trees. This attractive, round-topped citrus tree bears fruit year-round in Zones 9 and 10 and can be planted indoors in cooler climates. This thornless tree produces glossy green, waxy leaflets in small rows. It flowers year-round and produces small, red-orange fruit a bit smaller than oranges. The fruits are sweeter than oranges and have an attractive star-shaped pattern when cut--just lovely on a fruit tray. Citrus reshni
