Clementine Tree

Delicious - Ornamental Fruit that's Easy to Grow!


We Prune Your Tree Throughout Its Life… NOT just when we ship it!

So instead of a tree that resembles a fishing pole, you get one that has well developed branches and is hefty enough to start supporting fruit production.

The heights advertised are generally after we prune your tree one last time, unless otherwise noted. So the height you pay for is what you receive.

Plus we don’t include the pot or root length in our measurements. This can give you an extra 1-2 ft. in height.

Our larger trees can be one to three years older than our smaller ones and should give you fruit the first season.

• Seedless 
• Easy to peel 
• Delicious & Juicy 

Clementines are exploding in popularity. They are sweet, juicy, and easy to peel. 

Anyone who has ever fought with a naval orange will appreciate the Clementine's loose skin. Even small children can easily peel them. 

Have you ever felt awkward spitting out seeds in front of company? Clementines are virtually seedless. 

Loads of bright orange fruit just cover these little trees. It's one of the most attractive plants you will ever grow. Shiny, evergreen leaves contrast the glowing orange. 

Works great as a patio plant. If you live in a cold climate, just bring it inside during the winter. It produces abundantly indoors or out. Just place it in front of a sunny window and pick fresh fruit throughout the winter. 

Grows organically indoors or out, seldom bothered by pests or disease. A very easy-to-grow, low maintenance tree. 

Trim to your desired size. Even a small tree will keep you and your friends loaded up with fruit. 

Clementine trees are one of the most highly demanded plants this season. We are one of the few nurseries that still have them... and ours will sell out quickly. If you're interested, we recommend ordering now.

It's Easy to Plant your Clementine Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Clementine Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Clementine Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Clementine Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Received my Nules clementine tree several weeks ago - had 5 blossoms. Now has 7 pea-sized fruit and another blossom! It's a beautiful plant! We currently have it outside but live in zone 4b so will be bringing it indoors in Sept.

Just received a new tree, and it's gorgeous! Well packaged, and as soon as I opened the box, the smell of blooms was intoxicating. Once I had it completely opened (took a while; well packaged) I was impressed with the overall health of the plant. I will definitely order again. Thanks

This is the second season for our orange tree and this winter it was loaded with little oranges, and so goooood. We live in southern Oregon and the tree comes in for the cold weather and has just gone back outside for the bees to pollenate

I received my clementine tree about 4 1/2 months ago. I have ordered 4 different plants/trees from FGTs and this was the only tree that seemed to get damaged in the shipping process. One big lateral branch was broken so I had to prune it back pretty far on that branch. Many of the leaves were damaged as well. However, it came with a nice shape and was pretty bushy. I'm happy to say that after 4 1/2 months, it seems to be doing pretty well. It put on several new leaves, no blooms yet though. I was a little worried because all of the leaves seem to be a little curled. However, if you look at the picture on the left with Pam standing next to some clementine trees, those leaves seem to be a little curled too. So maybe that's normal. Overall, very happy with the purchase.

Purchased the clementine tree over a year ago as a 2 - 3 ft tall plant. Fast growing tree was very careful with the packaging, as the tree did not get damaged at all. Had some small blooms on the tree this year but no fruit as of yet. However, the tree really took off this late fall/early summer with new sprouts all over. It's beginning to fill out. This tree is easy to care for in the winter as well, it did well inside near a sunny window. We are looking forward to harvesting some fruits off clementine this year. You will not be disappointed with this purchase

I got my Nules Clementine about 2 weeks ago is doing great I could see little white buds coming up soon I will be having fruit the tree is about 3-4 ft. I went to Home Depot and got the best soil they have also bought a big pot. I have 2 other Key Lime tree and they have flowers and new leaves growing. I highly recommend fast growing to purchase your tree. I leave in NY and is February and my trees are doing great. If you are going to have plants in your house why not have plants that will produce fruit and enjoyed the limes or clementines. I have them near a window. Can't wait for spring to bring them out and see them grow even more. Thank you Fast growing trees for having such great trees for sale!

Cute tree
A great small tree that we potted for the back porch. In four monthes the branches have grown 6-8 inches and it is about a foot bigger in diameter. Beautiful tree and I would buy it again ... And now to wait for fruit.

Wonderful tree! Wow! It is doing great! Does great inside but has really flourished and branched out outside on the porch. May be the most hardy plant I've ever owned. I love it!

I live in Pa. and I received my (2-3 ft). clementine tree 5-15-14. It actually arrived bigger and better than I had expected. I am very happy with my trees. This is just one of several fruit plants that I had ordered and will definitely be ordering from here for now on.

My favorite citrus fruit is the clementine. My grandchildren will really enjoy plucking these tasties off to eat!
Susan H on Oct 4, 2015
We love the fruit. We live in a climate zone where some plants have to be brought in during the winter, so we wanted a smaller plant that would enable us to do this and also provide good fruit.

Does this tree attract animals & pests?
Thomasina R on Apr 12, 2015
do I need to buy two of these for Cross pollination?
Roger on Jun 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I Only Bought 1 Tree Over A Year Ago. It Seems To Set About 25% Of Its Fruit. IN My Opinion, Having 2 Trees Within A Few Yards Of Each Other, Will Workout Much Better For Fruit Set. I Plan On Purchasing Another From Fast Growing Trees. The Trees From Them Are Very Healthy Compared To Other Companies.
how old will the tree be when first purchased? how long before the tree bares fruit?
Rhonda M on Mar 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Do you have to have another navel tree, to pollinate? or can I plant one tree?
i would like to get 2 citrus trees, 1 clementine & 1 lemon. Will they cross-pollinate or do i need to buy the same kind of tree?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The clementine is self pollinating. I bought one two years ago and it is growing well but has yet to produce fruit. I have a Satsuma tangerine that is very prolific but it took five years to get the first fruit. I have a grapefruit that produced after four years and a kumquat that produced after three years. I do not have lemon because what the heck do you do with a tree full of lemons.
What is in the kit?
Nancy C on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The kit comes with a 12X12" container, and bag of DIEHARD transplant fertilizer and three bags of citrus planting mix.
Hello, We bought our first clementine tree a few months ago. We live in Boston MA . I think its about 3 feet. We have had tons of little tiny green oranges that just fall off before getting ripe. I tried using miracle grow food but don't know if I should try something else. Our 4 young boys are waiting and hoping and talking to it but still not one we could eat. Should I buy 2?
sharon on Jul 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Another Clementine Tree would significantly increase the fruit yield, however sometimes trees need about a year to get adjusted to their new environments before they start producing large amounts of mature fruit.
What type, if any, fertilizer do you recommend for the Clementine tree? I bought one a couple of days ago, and will keep it potted since I live in Pittsburgh, Pa.
By the way, on a personal note, you're adorable...LOL

BikerGEE on Jun 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I apologize for the delay in answering. We also planted ours in a large clay pot that we could bring inside during the winter. The only fertilizer we have used I sprinkling some miracle grow on top of the soil. It has done fine. This spring we got it outside early and had just thrived!
Hello, I live in Pennsylvania ,
I want to plant 2 clementine trees in my yard. Will they survive the winter ?
I have a fig tree that does great with the cold weather here,
Bobby K on Sep 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In PA a clementine tree will not survive the winter outside. Fig trees are more hardy that is why it can thrive all year.
Does the Citrus Planting Kit contain everything I need to plant the tree once it arrives?
Stefanie K on May 22, 2015
would I need at least 2 trees for either one to produce fruit?
Joseph on Feb 11, 2015
I bought my clementine about 5 or 6 months ago. It had small fruit on it that dropped off. Someone told me to fertilize it so I did but that led to nasty little bugs. I've since took it inside (Boston resident) because its getting cold. All the leaves dropped off over the week. I have no south facing windows so I bought some grow lights. It looks sick and stressed. And I know have these fungus gnats in my house. What should I do? I realize that the tree is stressed out, do I repot it? I'm new at this, please help
sharon on Oct 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I had the same problem with my tree. All but a few leaves fell off within during the winter (About 4-5 months after I bought it). I repotted it and gave it the same care I would if it were healthy. The leaves grew back during the spring (I think that's because I was able to put it back outside). From my understanding, the more light the better with citrus trees. Make sure your roots aren't too soggy.
in regards to the patio clementine tree i live in nj so obv i cant have the plant outside year round. i have no issue bringing it in but my question is that i do have a 8x6 greenhouse. would i be able to keep it in there once the temp drops. i do know that usualy the greenhouse is around 10 degrees warmer outside and would also prevent frost. the greenhouse is basic so there is no heater but will the basic greenhouse do for this plant or in general tropicals.?
david k on Jun 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I've kept the plant in a greenhouse at minimum of 45 degrees in winter and it did well, but it cannot tolerate any frost. You might want to keep it in the house instead, if your greenhouse in unheated. The plant is compact and not messy.
Is this tree a self-pollinator?
Dennis F on Jun 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It must be as I've had in my kitchen over the winter and it continues to grow, etc.
How soon does the clementine tree start producing fruits?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This depends on the size of your tree. The 3 - 4 ft size should produce fruit within the first year. Generally most trees need a year to get adjusted to their new environment before they produce fruit.
What would cause a tree to begin putting on new fruit before the existing fruit has ripened? This is the second year in a row that it has started putting on new fruit while the fruit that is already on the tree is only about half ripe. It is still half green and half orange.

Is there anything I can do to keep this from happening?
James N on Sep 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This happens to a few branches each year on my trees too. I think it is stress like pruning a branch or strange cliamate for a week or two that can trigger this. It does not seem to be a problem. enjoy the flowers in the off season
is this a "dwarf" clementine madarin tree and will it produce fruit the first year without having another tree nearby?
Carol M on Jul 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Mine is producing in the second year.
What size pot should I prepare for one of these clementine trees?
Paulla T on Jun 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you bought the 1-2 ft size, you will need a 10" pot. If you bought the larger 3-4 ft size, you will need a 14" pot. As your tree grows, you will need to transplant to a larger pot every 2-3 years, going to the next larger size each time.
If I order the citrus planting kit, do I need the planting mix and fertilizer or is it all in the kit?
Pamela B on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The kit will come with a pot, 3 bags of planting mix and a bag of fertilizer.
Is this a grafted tree ?
Michael K on Jun 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all of our fruit trees are grafted.
What type of root stock is the Clementine grafted on to?
Sharon J on Jun 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Carrizo citrange
I have a lemon and an orange tree--I would like to plant them outside in the Gulf Shores area of Alabama--a few miles from the ocean. Zone 8. When the temp drops-- could I just cover/ tent the trees with plastic to keep them alive?
Karla C on Jun 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I keep my orange tree inside over winter, here in Minnesota.
I think I wouldn't use plastic But cloth to hold the heat, Plastic would transfer the cold
A little like the netting that is used to keep the birds away from the fruit
Are the plants grafted?

i have madarin tree about 2years old the young are dropping any suggestion on the caues?
nealia f on May 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They will drop if you over fertilize or the air is too dry. They will drop before a growth spurt in growing new or longer branches which will replace the dropped leaves.
I live in the desert of Arizona, Lake Havasu City. Citrus grows really well here. I want to order some fruit trees from you but nothing you advertise can be shipped to AZ. They sell some at Walmart but they die after a couple of years and the warranty is only one year. I have one grapefruit and one fig tree that has survived and are still producing good. Is there any fruit trees that you can ship to AZ?
Fred E on Apr 25, 2015
I live in the panhandle of Florida. It does get below freezing at times. This tree is rated for my zone but can this tree survive freezing temps? Planted a lemon tree two years ago and it did not survive.

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most Fruiting Plants are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Tree before pruning Tree after pruning Rose before pruning Rose after pruning

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
