• Grows anywhere in the US as a patio plant 
• Withstands brief temps down to 12-15F
• Sweet, Delicious Orange
• Easy to peel, virtually seedless

You probably bought these and didn’t even realize it. They look, taste and peel just like Clementines… it’s difficult to tell them apart.

Stores package them in the webbed bags in the winter and everyone assumes they are Clementines. Satsumas are Mandarin oranges, but technically are not Clementines.

Owari Satsumas are one of the most cold tolerant orange trees you can grow.

Southern states can plant directly in the ground. If you live in an area that gets occasional temps below 12-15F, you can throw a frost blanket over your tree to add a few degrees of protection. Colder and Northern areas can pot Satsumas in large containers and move them indoors or in the garage during extreme temperatures.

They make a great looking winter houseplant, with their bright oranges against deep green leaves.

Prune them to your desired size. If left untrimmed, they will eventually grow up to 10-12 feet tall.

Satsumas are drought tolerant and very easy to grow.

Like most citrus trees, they like to dry out before being watered. So you can go on vacation and never worry about them.

A small tree will produce an amazing amount of fruit. Let them ripen on the tree, for an orange much sweeter than what you buy in the store. You get a continual supply of fresh vitamin C all winter long. 

These large trees will sell out, so we recommend that you order soon while they are still available.

Growing Zones:
4-11 patio / 8-11 outdoors

Mature Height: 10-12 ft.
Mature Width: 10 ft.
Sunlight: Full - Partial

Botanical Name: Citrus reticulata 'Owari'

Growing Zones 8-11 outdoors
This plant is recommended for zones:

4-11 patio
8-11 outdoors

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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 Owari Satsuma 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 Owari Satsuma 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.

The Owari bloomed like crazy and started producing fruit the first season I've owned it. I am now waiting for about 25 satsuma fruits to turn orange and ready for harvesting. Now that it is getting colder in the evenings around here (NE), I have moved the (potted) tree into my greenhouse (windows are still open during the day). I am looking forward to my supply of satsumas during the colder season

Amending my prior review. It is now July 30th. The Owari remains healthy, now has new growth, about half a dozen new blooms, and the two developing oranges it came with remain. So for you potential buyers, the trees come well boxed, arrive in great shape, and with proper care remain healthy and flower and develop fruit. I highly recommend this company.

Tree arrived in great shape, well boxed, and had only lost 4 leaves by the time it was out of the box. Good size and shape. Potted the tree after a few days. Looks very healthy and has not lost another leaf. There are two developing oranges on this tree as delivered. Time will tell, but so far so good. For reference, I live in Michigan, this will be in a pot along with my other orange (Valentia, Navel, and Tango Mandarin), Persian lime, and Marsh grapefruit trees. You really can grow citrus in Michigan indoors with a good south window and plenty of horticulteral oil to treat scales. They do go outdoors in the summer for improved productivity. Still picking this year's grapefruit and valencias. Now hoping for a good crop of mandarine oranges in the coming years

Gorgeous Tree
I have received a Meyer Lemon, Persian Lime, Hass Avocado, Miracle Fruit and Owari Satsuma from Fast Growing Trees. The Satsuma is the most beautiful and healthy looking I have received. Lots of green growth and branching. No evidence of blooms yet, but gorgeous tree.

Received my Satsuma tree from Fast Growing Trees last week. Stretched out, it was a little over 4 feet tall, and well developed. The item was packaged very well, and was still very green and alive when it arrived. There were even 3 oranges on it, and they still remain. Upon further inspection, I could see that it has already bore fruit...so I'm hoping for a good harvest this year or next!

why do orange trees not ship to Florida?
caroline c on Sep 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The answer to this often asked question is that the citrus industry is so important to the State of Florida, that they are very concerned that disease will be brought into the state and get out of control. Citrus disease is very contagious and can devastate entire groves.
Does this tree have multiple flushes of blooms during the year or is there only one bloom/fruiting period? It will be brought indoors in the winter, zone 7a.

what is included in citrus planting kit?
Maria on Nov 15, 2014
Why can't this be shipped to me in florida and the others similar ones. whats going on?
ladyricci on Sep 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: On one of the other fruits, maybe the lemon, it said that some states have agricultural laws that won't allow fruit trees "imported" from other states. So my question is why don't Florida tree nurseries carry their own? Have you looked?
When should I fertilize my satsuma tree and what fertilizer should I use?
Jacquelin H on Oct 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Oddly enough, someone else answered this question completely differently. I buy fertilizer especially for citrus trees and it clearly says on the bag to use on young trees every 6 weeks until they are about 4-5 years old. Then every three months after that (I do it on the first day of Spring, Summer and Fall, so I don't have to try and remember when I did it last). Specifically says to NOT apply fertilizer in Winter, as the tree goes dormant at that time.
When do mandarin orange trees bloom ?
John M on May 11, 2015
i just got my satsuma tree well boxed, good shape and healthy my question is how long its take to set up fruit? can i leave in the nursery pot? thanks
my rachid l on May 31, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My tree only had one orange the first year which i lost. This year it is full of blooms and i already see small oranges. Do not leave it in the nursery pot. I transplanted mine into an 18 inch diameter planter with a potting soil containing fertilizer and peat with about an inch of gravel at the bottom of the planter (water well after transplanting). Do not mulch on top of the soil because citrus trees need the soil to be well drained and dry to about an inch between waterings otherwise you might have fungus problems. Do not put the tree in direct sunlight for 4 - 5 days so it can adjust gradually (otherwise it might loose quite a few leaves). Likewise, in the winter, if you will be bringing it inside, move it into filtered sunlight for 4 - 5 days prior to bringing it indoors. Good Luck. There is nothing sweeter than the scent of orange blossoms.
What causes forming fruit to drop off before maturing?
Sandi E on Jul 18, 2015

I've had the same problem. All I can think of is that the very young fruit and the small twig that attaches them to the tree are very fragile until they are about a month old. I've seen thunder storms and/or high winds knock many of the young fruit off the tree.

I have had my tree for a couple of years old now and it's finally starting to stand up straight. It was shipped as a three year old and bent nearly double in the delivery box. It did bare fruit the first year, but the weight of the oranges kept the tree from standing up. I have very carefully been putting "splints" on it (like a broken leg or arm) and forcing it to stand up straight. I adjust the "splint" every couple of months.

If you have any other info on the fruit loss problem, I would like to hear it.

is this tree self pollinating? do i need to purchase more than just one?
maria b on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. They are self pollinating. You only need one. I purchased two as I wanted more fruit and, also, in case something happened to one, I would still have the other.
What size pot should I plant this tree in? Also what is the ending size pot for this tree? Thank you.

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
Maple Tree before pruning Maple Tree after pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose before pruning 3 gallon Knockout 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.
