Botanical Name:

Citrus reticulata 'Owari'

Does Not Ship To:


Cold-Hardy Clementine-like Oranges

- 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.

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.

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.

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

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 I'm hoping for a good harvest this year or next!

Beautiful plants, when they arrived I thought they were fake. One was full of pea sized oranges, but after a few weeks I lost them all, now they look a little sad wih only twenty five percent of their leaves left. They live indoors under a grow lamp, I have noticed that some new growth is starting to appear now, hopefully they will adjust to their new climate and start filling back in.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Owari Satsuma Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Owari Satsuma 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 Owari Satsuma Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Owari Satsuma's supposed to be one of the hardiest citrus trees and they are supposed to be really sweet which my grand children should love. I have a Meyer lemon tree loaded with fruit but they don't seem to like eating them. My little tangerine tree that I bought at another nursery has been growing in my greenhouse for 5 years and still hasn't produced anything yet.

Rhonda S on Aug 16, 2016
I bought my satsuma tree three years ago. It has five fruits when it arrived. That was the first and last time it bore fruit. It just grows taller but I do not see any flowers. I fertilize it but not very often. What should I do to bear fruit again?
Elena R on Feb 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have a Satsuma that I originally planted in a pot. I bought it very small and I'm now in the 4th season and I finally have blooms..lots of them. The tree is now about 6 feet tall, but I had to make sure I didn't allow the rootstock to overtake the tree. Satsumas do not have thorns, so if you see branches (particularly from the bottom of the tree) cut those branches off. That's the root stock.
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.

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.
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: Agricultural restrictions prohibits us from shipping it into your state.
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.
Can this particular tree be grown in a pot outside?
Soupbone on Feb 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I planted mine in the ground outside in Las Vegas. But planting in pot enable you to bring inside when frost warning is issued. Mine get blanket cover by the Gardner on frost days.A friend of mine who lives in Southern California has it in large pot and get lots of fruits. She just keep it out side.If you live in area that the winter is cold, planting in a pot is MUST so it can spend winter indoor.
Can I plant owari satsuma outside I live in Portland Oregon?
Josue V on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The young tree was planted in a container in early spring 2015 and over-wintered in a garage in USDA zone 6. Now it’s outdoor in another container for second year. Earlier this past spring it almost died due to an unexpected cold, windy night (low 30’s). That was not unexpected, since the tree was young, recently transplanted, and has not been acclimated to outdoor weather yet. It has since grown back.
However, many people online have planted this tree in zone 6 (you can search it on Google). Some claim that it survived outdoors in as low as 15’F (one or 2 nights).
Thus, my plan is to give it another year till it becomes 3 yr old, plant it outdoor, and definitely protect it really well over next winter by mulching it and wrapping entire tree in burlap or similar woven material.. Once the roots take hold in the ground, the tree seems to survive a typical winter in zone 6. Good luck.
do orange trees have to be polinated when indoors ?
richie on Sep 29, 2016

what fungicide or spray can I use as my tree seems to have a fungus infestation ?
Caroline C on Dec 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is planted in the garden in Las Vegas. Luckily it is very dry and have very little,fungus,bug problems.
In California I had the same kind. Did not have much problem. Generally I used home made spray with Capsaicin + drop of dish soap + veg oil on my roses.
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.
Got a Satsuma tree ,it has 15-20 fruits on it and I got two that cracked open the peel and they far from ripe and fell off the tree? Also ,can I repot it while it has fruit on it?
Eva G on Aug 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is normal to occasionally lose some fruit the tree self governs how much fruit to bear and will occassionally drop some fruit. I would not repot it if you've had it awhile I might put the pot in a bigger pot like a sleeve if I really wanted a different style pot and wait for the fruit to ripen especially if you're having fruit drop anyway. Unless you just got it delivered or whatever then it's already pretty stressed I don't think it'll matter that much to repot it now in that case. A lot of people in their experience say owari will drop larger fruit easily yet in my experience with my numerous trees the fruits after gaining size have been tenacious it may be difference in soils or other factors excetera. Smaller trees are probably not rootbound to an emergency point. You may be able to gently repot it and not lose more fruit. Good luck!
I just received mine, Oklahoma , how long til it starts bearing fruit?
homeschoolmom on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would give it 2-3 years.
What size pot should I plant this tree in? Also what is the ending size pot for this tree? Thank you.
Joseph B on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Plant it in at least in a 5 or 7 gallon pot.
