I had a mandarin tree in my Sydney garden which fruited prolifically with minimal attention and produced small incredibly sweet fruit. My sons, then toddlers, used to collect them in a toy bucket, peel and eat them whole, 5 or 6 at a sitting each.The image of them with juice running down their chins and sticky all over is a happy memory and I'd heartily reccommend a mandarin tree to anyone in the right areas.
