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
January 1, 2013
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

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 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.

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 trees.com 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!

We bought our tree March 2013. It arrived it great condition and already had blooms. It is now May 2013 and has 40 or more little green balls(clementines) that are growing and lots more blooms too. We are super excited about our tree and have bought several other items from this company as well, which are doing great too. Can't wait to harvest these as well as our strawberries and peaches that came from FASTGROWINGTREES.COM. We live in zone 8

Planting & Care



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


Clementine Tree Planting Diretions

Clementine trees (or Citrus clementia) are a hybrid between Mandarin Orange trees and Sweet Orange trees. They will produce white flowers in the spring and small fruits in the fall that will be ready to pick between November and January. The skin on a clementine is smoothy, glossy and easy to peel. Inside you will find the fruit is seedless, very sweet and easily broken into multiple sections making this fruit a great choice for kids! You'll also rest easy knowing the many nutrients Clementines have including fiber, potassium, calcium and Vitamin C. These trees have a medium growth rate of up to 2 feet per year and will mature to a height of 6-8 feet tall.

Seasonal Information: Clementine trees will do best in warmer climates as it is classified as a tropical plant. Zones 8 to 11 are ideal for outdoor planting. However, if you do experience cold winters, plant your Clementine tree in a container and bring it inside for the fall and winter seasons. We recommend planting in Spring through Fall for outdoors since they are sensitive to colder temperatures.
 

Selecting a location: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, 6-8 hours per day is best. They can tolerate some shade, but thrive in full sun. You'll want to ensure trees are spaced 8-10 feet apart if planting more than one. These trees also do better in areas with high humidity so you may also need to create humidity for your tree by misting the leaves daily with water. Potted plants do enjoy a daily misting for humidity but placing a tray with rocks filled with water under the plant will feed humidity to the tree as the water evaporates.
 

Planting Directions (in Ground): If you are located in zones 8-11 and your winter temperatures stay consistently warm, your Clementine will do well being planting outside in the ground. Be sure the area has well draining soil.

1) Dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system.
2) Place the tree in the hole and back fill it with your sandy, well-draining, acidic soil. If you have clay soil, try amending it with sand, stone, perlite or fine potting soil.
3) Tamp the soil down as you back fill the hole to cut back on any pockets from forming.
4) After planting, be sure to give your Clementine tree a deep watering for about 5 minutes. Mulching around the tree will help insulate the roots and keep your plant warm in the colder winter months as well.


Planting Instructions (potted): If your winter temperatures are consistently below 40 degrees, plant your tree in a container that can easily be brought outside in the summer months and inside in the winter. A planter with built-in casters is a good choice so it can easily be moved. Choose a pot slightly larger than what it was shipped in that has plenty of holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. Be sure to plant in well-draining potting soil preferably recommended for acid loving citrus plants.

1) Fill your pot halfway with soil. Remove the tree from it's original pot and gently place in in the potting soil.
2) Fill in around the tree with the remainder of the potting soil but be sure not to cover the grafted area of the tree. Leave about an inch from the soil surface to the rim of the pot for easy watering.
3) Lightly pack down the soil. Immediately after planting, give your tree a deep watering until it flows from the holes in the bottom of the pot.
4) Place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight. Supplement with a grow light if it will not receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day. You may also need to create humidity for your tree by placing the pot on a saucer of pebbles or misting the leaves daily with water.

Watering: Clementines do not like wet feet. Be sure to give your tree a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2-3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again. Yellowing and droopy leaves is a common sign of over watering while brown, dry leaves are a sign of under watering. Mulching can help retain the soil moisture and also combat competing grasses/weeds.

For potted Clementines, stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If there is moisture present, hold off on watering until it feels more dry at that depth. When ready to water, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.

Pollination assistance: You can pollinate your indoor trees by hand since most people do not keep a healthy bee population within their home. Simply take a small, dry, fine tipped paint brush and stick it into the center of the bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated. Do this once daily and don’t wash the paintbrush until after the blooms have been pollinated. The bloom will fall of naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

Fertilization: Feed your Clementine tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer once every six weeks. Espoma Citrus Tone is highly recommended but any organic fertilizer specifically for citrus should suffice. This will help keep your tree on a healthy growth cycle but also replenish the nutrients in the soil. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2-3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit and has got a few years on it, you can skip the cold season fertilization. The same fertilizing regimen should be followed for potted Clementine trees as well. Make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.

Pruning: Pruning can be done at any time of the year for in ground planted clementines except in the winter. Make 45-degree angle cuts to remove dead or crossing limbs and also to thin out the tree to allow more light to flow between the branches. “Leggy” looking branches may indicate that there is not enough light getting to the tree’s interior. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood and ventilate the center of the tree. Remove suckers as they form/grow from the base as they will steal away nutrients from the primary trunk of the tree. Pruning can be done at any time of the year for the potted clementine.

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.

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.

WHEN SHOULD MY PATIO CLEMENTINE GO BACK OUTSIDE IN ct, ALSO THE CLEMENTINES TOOK A LONG TIME TO GET ORANGE AND STILL HAVE ONE ON THE TREE AND ITS March?
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!

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

How many times a year do clementine trees produce fruit ?
Micci C on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Clementine Trees produce white flowers in the spring before the fruit begins to grow. Your fruit will be ripe and ready to be harvested around mid-November when its skin fully turns orange in color. If you see green on the skin or around the stem then your Clementines aren’t ready to be harvested yet.
Is this tree safe around cats?
Michael H on Mar 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Any citrus tree can be a potential danger to cats due to the citrus oil. "Citrus oil is used in everything from cleaners to food additives. The essential oil is most concentrated in the fruit of citrus trees but is also found in the leaves. A curious cat may be tempted to play with and even nibble on the leaves of a citrus tree, especially if the tree is container-grown and the leaves are easily reachable, and cats are more susceptible to citrus poisoning than dogs. Cats who ingest citrus oil may suffer from diarrhea and vomiting, drooling, depression and weakness. Liver damage or even death may occur. Cat owners who suspect their cat might have consumed part of a citrus tree leaf should contact their veterinarian immediately."

However, it is rare for cats to take an interest in chewing on the leaves or the skin of the fruit where it is found. My cats loved laying in my mature citrus trees in the yard, but never took interest in chewing on them. If a cat does take interest, I'd recommend a good cat repellent to discourage them or you can train your cat to leave your tree alone. There are different methods from the simple to complex, but a water spray bottle works and is used by many dog and cat trainers to curb negative behaviors; this does not mean drenching the animal, just a small squirt with a firm "NO" usually does the trick. Good luck!
Does this tree need to be pruned?
Meggan W on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, ours is in a pot.

Trudy on Mar 15, 2017

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

BEST ANSWER: To comply with USDA phytosanitary regulations, we are required to apply a mild chemical treatment to all fruit trees shipped over state lines. This treatment is required to prevent the spread of potentially devastating pathogens from one state to another and is mandatory for all growers. Once your trees arrive, you can use all natural and organic growing techniques to grow organic fruit.
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?

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.

Is it better to buy this tree with or without the pot?
Tara F on Jan 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you are planting it outside I would say without the pot if it's going to be indoors then with the pot
does it matter if my tree is sprouting branches below the graft?
ctcowley on Oct 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I would cut off the branches below the graft. It can "suffocate" the branches above, they would not produce fruit as fast as the branches above the graft.
