Cold Hardy, Clementine-like Oranges

What sets the delectable Owari Mandarin Tree apart? To start, it grows anywhere in the country as a patio plant, withstands brief temperature drops down to 12-15 degrees F, and it's low-maintenance. The sweet, delicious oranges from this tree are one-of-a-kind.

And because it's the most cold tolerant orange tree, you're not limited to location in growing the Owari Mandarins, also known as Satsumas. Basically, they can be grown anywhere, whether you grow them outdoors or in a container to bring inside during chilly weather.

And not only are they able to withstand cold temperatures, but they're also drought tolerant and very easy to grow. You've probably bought these at the grocery store and didn't even realize it. They look, taste and peel just like clementines - it's difficult to tell them apart. Though you'll find that they're very sweet and even better than store-bought: They're easy to peel and have very few seeds.

A small tree will produce an amazing amount of fruit. With an Owari Mandarin Tree, you'll get a continual supply of fresh vitamin C all winter long. Your tree is packaged with care and will arrive healthy with deep green leaves.

Because we've nurtured them meticulously at our nursery, they're ready to thrive. No need to wait years to get beautiful fragrant blooms that fill the air with a fresh scent. Many times, our trees arrive with fruit already on them! Like most citrus trees, they like to dry out before being watered and can be pruned to your desired size. If left untrimmed, they will eventually grow to 10-12 feet in height. Order your Owari Mandarin Tree today!

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

new fruit trees after hurricane devastation
Ordered this tree and a Meyer Lemon to replace those destroyed by the storm surge.
Arrived in clever packaging. Not a yellow leaf on either one! No leaves had fallen off of either one.
Planted them, watered them and after 3 weeks, no sign of stress or distress.

I'm happy with this tree. It grows well inside (zone 5, south facing window with supplemental light.) Flowered a few times, but the fruit didn't get very large before it fell off.

Wonderful addition!
The tree arrived healthy and was potted immediately, and now is doing quite well on the patio. Since this is in Central Massachusetts (between 6a and b hardiness zone), we'll need to bring it in sometime end of October or beginning of November, when the first frost arrives. Hopefully our sunny sun room will provide it with sufficient chill-hours but also sunshine throughout the winter. We'll be monitoring both closely.

So far so good!

Much Improved!
This is by far the best tree I have ever received from Fast-Growing Trees. I had a couple disappointments last year with a lemon tree that appeared to have had the main, central branch cut out and a rather sickly looking blood orange that still seems to be struggling (repotted this week to change soil and increase drainage to see if that helps), and a blueberry bush that was sent with another plant directly on top of it (which did not survive) but after reading more recent reviews I decided to try again. After all, not many places sell citrus trees in Indiana! This tree is well-shaped, has LOTS of healthy leaves, new growth, and lots of branches. Bigger than I anticipated and relatively straight. Healthy root system. Arrived completely undamaged. Extremely pleased. Got it in a pot with some root stimulator immediately upon arrival and excited to see how it will do!

Planting & Care

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

Owari Mandarin Tree Planting Diretions

The Owari Mandarin Tree (Citrus reticulata 'Owari') is an easy to grow, drought tolerant citrus tree that is recommended for zones 8-11 when planting outdoors. If you are in a colder climate, simply plant your tree in a container and move it indoors during the winter months to help protect it from the colder temperatures. It will reach a mature height of 10-12 feet tall and a width of around 10 feet, but can be pruned to maintain a more desirable height. Its delicate white blooms look beautiful against the deep green leaves in spring and put off a fragrance that’s sure to attract bees and butterflies. Their fruit is similar to clementines in that they’re easy to peel, making them a favorite among children. They’re medium in size, virtually seedless and deliciously sweet an juicy. They’re ready for harvesting between October and December and store very well.

Seasonal Information: Mandarin, or Satsuma, 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 Mandarin 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 properly 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 Mandarin 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 drained, 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 Mandarin 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 for 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 (1-2 pot sizes) 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 its original pot and gently place it 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: Mandarins 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 Mandarin Trees, 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. The bloom will fall off naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

Fertilization: Feed your Mandarin 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 Mandarin 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 Mandarins 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 Mandarin.

Had a fabulous Satsuma in Destin, FL. It grew to roof top level and produced enough fruit for the entire neighborhood + . Hopefully, we can carefully grow a small tree here in Myrtle Beach, SC.

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.
What causes forming fruit to drop off before maturing?
Sandi E on Jul 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A number of factors can play into fruit drop. Weather (freezes and high winds), the presence of pests and if you are overbearing it can all cause early fruit drop.
Are these trees grafted onto another variety of citrus tree? I believe I may have growth coming up from below a graft line and I need to know so I can remove it.
Donna C on Aug 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Donna - I didn't see any grafting on our tree but we did see what we call "bolts" - where a branch comes out of no where and grows straight up. We just cut them off. We had several "Suma" fruits the first year but nothing else suggesting that there had been a graph with another type of tree.

Why is this orange not shipped to CA?
Srilakshmi on Jun 8, 2018

Do you need more than one?
