Although some varieties that come to market are a deliberate cross-pollination, most are the result of chance mutations, said Etienne Rabe, vice president of horticulture at Paramount Citrus in California.
According to Rabe, the number of acres of child-sized mandarins grown in California has increased from about 5,000 in 1999 to 30,000 in 2010.

The covered trees produce less fruit, said Etienne Rabe of Paramount.
Growers have not determined if the loss stems from the covering or because as seedless fruit, it is harder to set fruit.

He said cost per acre would depend on the longevity of the netting. Paramount has used its netting for the past three bloom seasons. Rabe was a member of the legislation-mandated Seedless Mandarin and Honeybee Coexistence Working Group that was asked to deliver a settlement between growers and beekeepers in 2009.
