Norris Mandarin Melon Berry Tree Tastes Like Watermelon!
Just like Darrow, Norris is a Lady! Norris is a self fertile variety found during the TVA dam building project. This tree is more vigorous than Darrow and makes a great shade tree. The seedless fruit is juicy, deep red, 1-2 inches, and sweet. Norrisâ€™ flavor is comparable to a fig with overtones of watermelon. Ripens July-August.
