Delicious - Ornamental Fruit that's Easy to Grow!

- Easy to peel
- Delicious & Juicy

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. If you're interested, we recommend ordering now.

Clementine Tree Pollination

Clementine Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Clementine Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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

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.

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

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 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.

Nules clementine
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.

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 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!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Clementine Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Clementine 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 Clementine 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 Clementine Tree again after the transplant is complete.

What size pot should I prepare for one of these clementine trees?
Paulla T on Jun 26, 2015
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.
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: I have a key lime, calamondin orange, Meyer lemon, kishu mandarin and two clementines and I haven't had any issues. All of them are self-pollinators.
If I order the citrus planting kit, do I need the planting mix and fertilizer or is it all in the kit?
Pamela B on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The kit will come with a pot, 3 bags of planting mix and a bag of fertilizer.
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 but still not one we could eat. Should I buy 2?
sharon on Jul 4, 2014
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 is in the kit?
Nancy C on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The kit comes with a 12X12" container, and bag of DIEHARD transplant fertilizer and three bags of citrus planting mix.
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!
markfrance on Nov 12, 2015
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.
would I need at least 2 trees for either one to produce fruit?
Joseph on Feb 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Citrus trees do not need a pollinator to produce fruit.
How old are your 3-4 ft. Clementine Trees?
Cindy G on Mar 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are 2-3 years old.
Does the Citrus Planting Kit contain everything I need to plant the tree once it arrives?
Stefanie K on May 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does.
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

BikerGEE on Jun 3, 2014
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!
Hello, I live in Pennsylvania ,
I want to plant 2 clementine trees in my yard. Will they survive the winter ?
I have a fig tree that does great with the cold weather here,
Bobby K on Sep 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In PA a clementine tree will not survive the winter outside. Fig trees are more hardy that is why it can thrive all year.
i have madarin tree about 2years old the young are dropping any suggestion on the caues?
nealia f on May 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They will drop if you over fertilize or the air is too dry. They will drop before a growth spurt in growing new or longer branches which will replace the dropped leaves.
I live in zone 6 will my nules clementine live outside?
georgette l on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in Northern Florida and have had my Clementine tree for about 3 years and have planted it outside. The first year it produced 1 fruit and since then, nothing. I have faith though, going to see what it does this soring/summer. Good Luck!
I'm debating between getting the clementine or the meyer lemon. We would like an indoor tree that is fragrant. Are both of them fragrant?
Dianne H on Jan 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi, yes we have both trees the meyer lemon tree produced quit a bit of lemons and big sized ones they where fragrant but not overly fragrant.

Can I grow a fruit tree under a grow light versus direct sunlight and still get fruit?
David H on Dec 30, 2016
My tree is only a year old so I haven't had any fruit yet. It hasn't been in direct sun since it so hot here in SC.
Terrie B.
Lola C on Feb 9, 2016
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.
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
sharon on Oct 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.?
david k on Jun 30, 2014
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 have an open patio outside but does not get any sun. Will Patio Clementine tree grow here?
Tonie B on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I seriously doubt it ... fruit trees need sun!
Does this tree bloom year round? does it keep blooming year after year or does it only bloom for a year and then dies?
shanna g on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They bloom every year in the spring. No they will not die after producing.
Sandra L on Mar 18, 2016
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!
Is this tree a self-pollinator?
Dennis F on Jun 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It must be as I've had in my kitchen over the winter and it continues to grow, etc.
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.
Does this tree need to be pruned?
Meggan W on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, ours is in a pot.
Anyone know if this plant is organic from the point before purchase? In other words I want to make sure it was not sprayed with pesticides etc since it is a year old. Thanks
Jenny on Mar 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Don't know and have never gotten any fruit either.
My tree is starting to bloom (there are little buds starting all over the tree). I can't find my instructions (grrrrrr) ;should I be using a specific food to help the tree produce?
Peggy V on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: At planting time, don’t fertilize citrus trees. Instead, wait until new growth appears. Then you should begin a feeding schedule of once a month from February through October. For excellent fruit and growth production, you’ll want to use quality organic citrus fertilizer. Look for organic fertilizers formulated perfectly for citrus trees, such as Citrus-tone from Espoma and Dr. Earth Organic 9 Fruit Tree Fertilizer. If you cannot find either of those, you can use palm fertilizer, as they have almost identical requirements.
Scatter the measured organic fertilizer on the ground at least a foot away from the trunk – thoroughly water the fertilizer. Young citrus trees have an annual increased need of fertilization because their root system is increasing over this time span. Bear in mind that if you are growing your trees in containers, they will need fertilizing more often than a tree planted in the ground.
