Thank mate! Yeah, this grafted tree has grown well from the start, and as much as they are not a fussy plant, this one had some TLC with plenty of watering and the usual amount of fertilising.
The flavour is good, but I'd like to see a seedless version of this variety!

Yeah a seedless variety would be tops but still the seeds are ok because they're situated close to the inside skin so you can bite them out pretty easily then get a good seedless mouthful ; )

Yes, I've been teaching the kids this technique and they don't mind it either. They tend to taste more palatable than the seedless Afourer variety.

Those are really very nice fruits. I hope I could grow the same variety here.
I love citrus that every time I see one, I regret not planting them years ago.:facepalm:

The good news is they grow fast and you can have a good productive tree in under 5 years. Even 2 or 3 years (as Ash's tree shows) can be enough for handy sized crops of fruit.

There needs to be a balance of watering and fertilising. Too much fertiliser and the trees grows quicker in foliage but bears little fruit. Watering is needed during the flowering and fruit growing seasons otherwise there is fruit drop and all sorts of problems that affect fruit production and maturity.
