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.
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.
