Clementine Tree

Delicious - Ornamental Fruit that's Easy to Grow!


The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full 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.

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.

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 live in Florida so my tree is outside year round.. our winters are colder .. around 30s on and off for a few hours during the night.. all my orange trees survived fine.. HOWEVER in general.. tropicals do not like cold weather.. I dont know where you live but if you are above zone 7 I would bring the plant indoors

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.

How soon does the clementine tree start producing fruits?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2014
Best Answer: I'm not sure if this will help. We are in zone 3 or 4 depending on whose information you use. There was a clementine growing when we got the original tree and it grew quite slowly -- moved it indoors in the fall. We didn't eat it until Easter 2014! We got several blooms indoor during the winter but they didn't produce fruit. It is now outside and has several blossoms so we will see what happens this summer.

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

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!

What is in the kit?
Nancy C on Jun 2, 2014
Best Answer: I bought the dwarf Clementine for my wife but we moved out of country before it bore fruit. We're both in the military and Korea doesn't allow American vegetation (for obvious reasons). We received the tree about 12-18 inches tall and it actually had one small (about 1 inch diameter) clementine already growing. We placed it in a large pot and kept it on the back porch until Winter (mind you were we in the Maryland area) and placed it indoors under grow lights during the coldest months since it was so small. What little time we had it, the tree did very well. It also came with a small tri-fold care instruction packet, a small packet of fertilizer and a stick to help keep it from falling over on itself.

George W on Jul 25, 2014
Best Answer: Clementine Trees do have thorns and unfortunately Florida has agricultural laws put in place that prevent us from legally shipping Clementine Trees there.

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.

Why do you not ship to certain states, such as Florida? Does it have something to do with regulations in those states, or just shipping issues? Will we run into problems if we purchase out of state and take it with us, if we move to Florida?

Will my Trees and Shrubs 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.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

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.
