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.
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.
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
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
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 trees.com 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!
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.
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.
We bought our tree March 2013. It arrived it great condition and already had blooms. It is now May 2013 and has 40 or more little green balls(clementines) that are growing and lots more blooms too. We are super excited about our tree and have bought several other items from this company as well, which are doing great too. Can't wait to harvest these as well as our strawberries and peaches that came from FASTGROWINGTREES.COM. We live in zone 8
Purchased 2/9/12 plant has been doing fine however no fruit for 3 years! Well after 3 years I decided to do some homework and it needs cross pollination!!!! It would have been REALLY nice to have been TOLD this when I purchased plant. Why on earth would someone only buy one plant wanting fruit when you need two!! I was not told this. I should have been told this. Disappointed.
Purchased tree 7/14.Perfectly boxed when shipped. Tree is small doing well will have to wait and see no blooms we are in Sept. The leaves have an orange scent. so I'm hopeful for next year .WAIT AND SEE! Happy overall with my purchases from FAST GROWING TREES products.
Okay tree. Have had it for 6 mos or more. Whenever it is below 40, I keep this inside. I still have very little new growth and no clementines.Hopefully next year it will be better and give us some fruit
The little tree came in great conditions. Not too tall but within the items description. No blossoms yet but a few new shoots. The little tree is gorgeous and is doing very well. I'm in zone 7 so I have brought it in the home.
Have not had the trees long enough to determine rate of growth but they were beautiful and healthy when I got them. I am hoping against hope that my avocado tree will bear fruits. My Clementine Orange tree was three feet tall, the avocado about 15" -now I have to make sure I don't kill them by over watering them.
i love this company and the customer service people are sooo nice! I have purchased 1 meyer lemon (zone 8) yes fruit!! one vari lemon - (this one is beautiful but needs time to bare fruit waiting.... Just purchased Nules Clementine! Cant wait for xmas arrival - just do it.....(smile)
This is the second tree I have purchased from this company. Last June, I purchased a Meyer Lemon tree that currently has 12 lemons ripening...yay! This year, June, I purchased the Clementine. so far, it is growing at a tremendous rate and looking extremely healthy. We bring out citrus and tropical plants indoors through the winter and sit them in front of a window. I am anxious to see how the clementine does using this growing method.
I must say I was happily surprised when my tree not only showed up on time, but with no damage to the carton or the tree! No brown or lost leaves, or broken branches! We left it in the carport for a few days to adjust to northern Alabama, then transplanted it into a pot. It is doing wonderfully! Next I'll try the Fruit cocktail Tree!
NEVER PURCHASE A TREE ON LINE BEFORE AND FOR MY FRIST EXPERIENCE FAST GROWING TREES WAS A GOOD CHOICE PURCHASE A CLEMENTINE TREE PLANTED IT 3/1/15 AND AS OF 5/5 IT WILL PRODUCE 4 FRUIT THIS YEAR AWSOME!!!THE PACKAGING WAS FRIST RATE TREE WAS PERFECT!!WILL PURCHASE AGAIN.
My little clementine tree is sooo cute. When it arrived this past fall/winter it was about 3 feet tall with a good root system and sturdy leaves. After a few weeks, I transplanted it into a larger pot. Although at this point there was not any new growth but the leaves that it had looked good. Now spring is upon us and my little clementine has a brilliant green hat of new growth. I am very happy with this tree so far. I am looking forward to the flowers and then the fruit. Fast-growing trees is a good and reliable company, and their prices are really good. No need to look further.
My tree arrived smaller than expected, but within the product description. It was about 2-3 feet long and about the diameter of a pencil with about 5-6 leaves on it. This is the first tree I've bought via shipping.It's been nearly a year now and the tree has grown only a little taller but now has a reasonable amount if new growth and several new branches (some of them are growing out from near the base right now). It has not produced any fruit or blossoms yet. I assume at the current growth rate it will be another year or two before I can expect to get any
This tree arrived very quickly and was packaged very well. I had initially planted it in my yard but noticed after a few weeks that it was not really growing, so I pulled it up and potted it and it is on my back deck now where it is now very happy and growing quickly! I did use potting soil and fertilizer and have added fertilizer twice in small amounts since originally potting it. I highly recommend the fruit trees from this nursery. Very impressed.
I am really very impressed with the level of growth in the few weeks I've had this tree. It's in a larger planter using citrus appropriate soil with generous amounts of peat and perlite. Tree has grown at least 30% more leaves and filling out nicely. At this rate hope to get some fruit by end of year.
The tree was very well packaged and completely healthy upon receipt.
My clementine tree arrived quickly and in great shape. It arrived at 22"" tall, with buds and looked very healthy. The information that preceded its arrival via email and the information included with the tree was very helpful. Looking forward to enjoying our clementine oranges
Our Clementine tree was received about a week or so after ordering it online. We immediately planted it in a large clay pot in a mixture of good quality potting soil and sharp sand (for good drainage). Since the trunk was long & lanky and had several upper branches, I chose to support it with a stout piece of bamboo. The tree took a couple of months to show any signs of growth (not surprising) but over the past 6 weeks has shown some vigorous growth with several inches of new foliage. It gets regular irrigation from a low volume, drip line but has not been fertilized since it was planted. In view of its small size right now (about 3ft tall), I do not expect to see any fruit on it this year. Hopefully that will change next year.
I bought my clementine the spring of 2014. I didn't get any blooms the first year or the spring of 2015. However in late November of this year 2015 the plant put on hundreds of blooms. We'll see what happens it's been a warm winter so far so I've kept it outside but I'll move it inside as it cools.
I love my little tree! Lives inside in a pot close to a sunny window, it has flower and the smell is intoxicating!!! Not fruits yeat but all my indor plant are infected with spider mites! Hope it recovers soon! Very happy with almost all my tree from Fast growing trees!
The tree arrived on time, carefully packed looking like a true tree not just a stick in dirt! It was clearly well cared for and healthy, we are now anxiously waiting for next year to see if it will share some fruit!
The clementines didn't arrive with the trees. Is this like a "batteries not included thing?" LOL, just kidding. I pre-ordered and pre-paid two trees. I read a review the cross pollination was not needed but seemed better with two. Besides, I like clementines. There was a problem with my order not shipping out. I contacted Customer Service (CS). The trees on my order were showing out of stock. Some sort of glitch I presume. The woman jumped right on it. I had them 2 1/2 days later!!! They looked healthy right out of the box, not one broken branch, not even a loose leaf in the bottom of the box. I live in Michigan. I am growing them indoors in the back bedroom with strawberries, lettuce, green beans, cherry tomatoes,and a dwarf blueberry bushes under LED Full Spectrum Grow Lights, an/a experiment/hobby. Anyways (sometimes I get a bit long winded,sorry), I have had them one week and am very pleased. Should I add to my indoor garden, which I plan to, I will be looking to Fast Growing Trees for their indoor/dwarf offerings. I recommend Fast Growing Trees. And, I send out kudo's to the CS Rep who took care of me.
Was pleased the packaging protected the plants, & appeared to do well in the shipping process, (this was my main concern). Tree already hasent small buds of fruit!! Not zoned for montana but will enjoy it indoors as the fall gets near, until late thenight it will live on my deck. I'm excited to have the aroma in my home, as I bought a lemon tree as well.
I love my clementine tree. It arrived dried out and in shock a few months ago. Now it is beautiful and growing fast. No fruit has been produced, but I never expected any this year. The tree has more branches than I expected, has beautiful rich green color and looks much fuller and more beautiful than I had expected. I love this tree.
Fast service, good info on the products and how to plant and care for your products.
I recieved my clemintine Orange tree on June 30 it showed up in allright condition some drooping problems I planted it immediately it's now the 16th of July and I have not seen any leaves fall off and now as of this morning I've seen some new growth so I'm happy about that I'm sure it has taking root so all in all I would buy more products from fast growing trees matter of fact I'm looking into getting a nectrarine tree next.
Not sure how fast they will grow yet. I ordered the Meyer lemon, the navel orange and the mandarin all trees were the 2-3 ft and what I received is exactly that. Furthermore, the packing was outstanding and the plants did not even loose 1 leaf! Shipping was fast and overall I am very happy with my purchase so far. Let's wait and see how fast these babies will grow and how soon they can bear fruits.
It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Clementine Tree
Plant your Clementine Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although Clementine Trees prefer full sunlight they can tolerate shade. If planted indoors, place your tree by a large sunny window. Southward facing windows receive more light.
Clementine Trees prefer sandy soils, but will adapt to your natural soil as long as it's well draining. Let your soil dry to the touch down about two inches in between waterings. Early every Spring and Fall fertilize your Clementine Tree with an acidic fertilizer, or a fertilizer that's specifically for citrus trees.
Every Spring white flowers will emerge on your Clementine Tree. Once their pollinated Clementines will being to grow and mature until the colder months around November when they're ready to be harvested. Your Clementines are ripe when their skin turns a bright orange color with no hints of green on their skin or around their stems.
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. Thanks, Danny
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.
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.
It's been a while, but as best as I can remember there was a special blend of dirt that enhances growth for this tree. I planted it with some potting soil, and my tree is doing great. The blossoms almost smell like honeysuckle. Don't forget to use plant food, it really makes a difference. And follow the instructions when planting your tree. I made the mistake of putting a lime tree in a gigantic pot, and the tree grew tall rather than out and up. Hope this helps! :-)
I bought this clementine tree two years ago. This is my second season taking it inside from the patio (BOSTON). The leaves stay green and look healthy all year but it is not bearing any fruit (two clementines total so far). Over the summer it a beautiful blossom of white, fragrant flowers but I didn't see any fruit from it. Maybe birds at the small buds? What can I do to trigger fruit growth while inside this winter? I have a sunny spot to keep it. Should I re-pot and fertilize? The tree is getting larger 3-4 feet now and I still have it in the 14-inch pot. Andy advice is appreciated. Thanks!
Best Answer:Thank you for reaching out to us. You may need to manually pollination your tree to encourage more fruit production. These trees are self fertile but manual pollination can help with fruit production. Take a small paint brush and gently move the pollen around the buds to help pollinate your tree.
If your tree appears to be becoming root bound then it would be a good idea to transplant your tree into a larger container. You can also fertilize your tree with a well balanced citrus fertilizer, like Espoma Citrus Tone or Dr. Organic Earth. I hope this information is helpful. Feel free to contact us if you have additional questions at 1-888-504-2001.
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.
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 daily..lol but still not one we could eat. Should I buy 2?
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
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!
I use Osmocote Outdoor & Indoor plant food, 19-6-12, following the directions on the label. I have two clementines, one key lime and one calamondin orange, all in 12-inch containers, planted in Miracle-Gro Cactus and Citrus soil.
Best Answer:Not quite sure why it fell off. Clementine trees are sensitive to colder temps. I provide my try with 1 cup of water daily. In the spring, summer and fall the tree is outside receiving a good amount of sunlight. When the temps fall to the forties I bring the tree in but it still receives sun for most of the day. When I originally potted the tree I used the citrus fertilizer pack that fastgrowingtrees has available. Water, sun and care! Hope this helps.
There could be a number of reasons why they are dropping prematurely. They could be falling off naturally, to prevent it from being to weighed down from the ripening fruit. If the diameter is less then a half inch then it may not be strong enough to carry the fruit.
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
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.
Sorry to say Sharon I feel your pain & these trees in zone 5 or worse are well a struggle to keep alive. I have had no success :( Alas those of us not in CA - FL or AZ always desire plants - fruit outside our true "zone". I would google some answers - good luck !
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.?
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.
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
Best to bring indoors. The orange isn't as hardy as the Meyer lemon and only produces every other year. I keep mine in a warm environment year round by heating my greenhouse in the winter and offering a grow light.
Best Answer:I don't leave my tree out until the night temp is consistently above 45 degrees. The clementines definitely take a while to get fully orange. They won't fall off until you clip them off. I smelled the clementines when they were mostly orange, and if I smelled some sweetness, I clipped them off. Last year was our first full year and we received 5 total clementines. Hoping for more this year. Good luck!
ANYTIME the temperature at night does NOT go below FIFTY to FIFTY FIVE degrees!! If it does, it will go into a dormant phase, and either drop leaves, or possibly be killed. Wait a little longer...I think it's too early Sandra. Im in Maine...It wont be too long tho!
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.
Best Answer:It will come with Planting Instructions. It is best to choose a pot that compliments both your style and your landscape. Besides style you also want to consider choosing pots that are practical for your landscape. You want to choose containers that are a minimum of 12 inches wide or more; this is considered a 5 gallon sized container. Make sure that your containers have drainage holes. Having containers with drainage is crucial to your plants survival. The holes should be large enough to let out excess water, but not large enough that soil is falling out. Planting Mix It is best to use a planting mix, potting soil or a homemade compost equivalent. In order to make your own planting mix, we recommend mixing five parts compost with one parts builder sand, one part vermiculite, and one quarter part of dry organic slow release fertilizer. Planting Gently remove your plants from their nursery container. Start planting your tree in the center of the container and working outward. Scoop and fill soil in the container as needed. The soil should be at the same level that it had in the original nursery container. There should be no more or less of the plants stem covered. Make sure to water your plant thoroughly after planting. After you water your plants check the soil level and add more if necessary. Make sure that there are no air pockets in the soil.
Best Answer:I have had mine for almost 2 years. It has been in our sun room indoors the whole time. I planted it in a 17"X17"X14" high plastic planter. I drilled holes in the bottom and have it sitting on a plastic tray to catch the excess water. The tree lost a lot of leaves after I got it but this spring it grew them all back and has lots of new growth and flowers. I am a novice when it comes to plants so it is likely that the leaf lose was my fault.
Best Answer:There are many reasons why this would happen. The primary would be not enough light, or not enough Water. If it is POTTED, it's very possible. Not to worry though...when the tree drops leaves..it sometimes is just going into a DORMANT phase because of the above. Just move it to a better location, or waterf it more..Fruit treees are thirsty! That being said - the other reason could be nutrients, or soil. If you do not have or use nutrients, I highly reccomend MIRACID. It's Miracle grow for ACID loving plants - and if you water daily with a little of this, I guarantee yoiu the problem will go away, and your tree will shift into a phase of blossoms, and leaf GROWTH. Check your PH too and remember - it's an acid loving plant..the acidity is the only way the roots will be able to absorb nutrients.
Best Answer:Water management is vital to avoid excessive fruit drop and other tree problems. Poorly drain soils, excessive watering or drought stress can lead to fruit drop. Citrus trees prefer a slow, deep watering every 5 to 14 days during dry, hot weather, and every 14 to 30 days during cool, wet weather, or whenever the soil 6 inches below the surface near the tree feels dry to the touch.
