Owari Satsuma

Cold-Hardy Clementine-like Oranges

This item is currently SOLD OUT

You may be interested in the products below

• 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. Plus your tree has been bearing fruit for at least one season, so you won’t have to wait on it to mature. Just plant then pick.

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

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant your Owari Satsuma


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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 tree arrived without any damage and was nice and green, has 2 small oranges on it, the soil in the pot was still damp, looking forward to watching this tree mature


By: Mark Meisel
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!

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.

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!

I just received my Owari Satsuma tree and it is Feb. here in Ohio but the tree arrived in very good shape, nice green leaves big root system and about 4' tall. The tree comes very well packaged not even one leaf dropped off.....will see how well this tree does thru the year outdoors and indoors during dormant stage.

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!
