Plant Pot 216 Mandarin Orange Tree Jardin Du Luxembourg

This first HD photo shows the Citrus Reticulata, which was positioned opposite the Orangerie of the Jardin du Luxembourg next to the Rose Garden, and this along with many others are brought out from the orangery between the months of may and October for all visitors to enjoy.

Jardin Du Luxembourg Pot 216 Holding A Citrus Reticulata Tree

So Citrus Reticulata is the botanical name for what many people would know as a Mandarin Orange, and these originated in China and are utilised within Christmas and New Year celebrations in places such as Japan, China and the United States of America.

And Japan exported tons of these oranges to the USA up until World War II, and it was the first fruit to be shipped again after the war, but through the hostilities, this was why the orange took the name of Mandarin Orange, which most people recognise today rather than by its official name, however, China are the largest producers of the Citrus Reticulata, followed by Spain and Brazil.

Tourist Information Plaque Plant Pot 216 In Luxembourg Gardens

But getting back to this particular Citrus Reticulata, as you can see from this close up image showing the tourist information plaque fixed to the wooden crate, this is Pot No 216, and this along with many other trees are held within the Orangerie during the colder months, as these trees are susceptible to cold weather and frost can kill them.

Now the Mandarin tree is trimmed to keep it a regular shape and this along with the other citruses are cared for by a team of very qualified and professional gardeners, which are normally re-potted into a restored pots approximately every twelve to fifteen years when the oak panelled crates start to rot.
