The Tangelo Tree is Sweetness Defined

Take a Look at why it's so popular:

- Easy to grow in your garden or on the patio
- Reliable producer that will give you tons of sweet, juicy fruit
- Easy to peel makes it a favorite snack for kids
- Adapts well under a variety of planting conditions

What is a Tangelo?
If you love tangerines and grapefruits, this tree is for you. Combining the sweet and refreshing tastes of both fruit, the Tangelo Tree offers distinctive taste with the convenience of being seedless. Requiring full to partial sun, it's easy to grow and thrives practically anywhere. Not only are Tangelos packed with flavor, they're also a great source of vitamins C and A. There's no tastier way to stay healthy than by growing your own Tangelos.

Tangelo's Taste will Win you Over
Whether you're a fan of tangerines or grapefruits, one bite of a Tangelo and you'll have a new favorite. For one, they're more substantial than tangerines, making them a great snack choice. Not only that, as a hybrid between both fruits, they're also more juicy and flavorful. Ripening from late autumn through late winter, after picking them off your tree, head over to the kitchen and devise delectable dinners like Baked Coconut Shrimp with Tangelo Salsa. It'll have you saying viva la Tangelo!

Grow Organic Tangelos and Save
With its ability to fight off the pests and diseases that commonly plague most citrus fruit trees, growing your Tangelo Tree organically is easy and hassle free. Just imagine how much money you'll save when you skip shopping at the organic market. With all the benefits this specimen has to offer, be sure to order your Tangelo Tree today.

Tangelo Tree Pollination

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

This is a wonderful tree and I loved the fruit. We live in Pa, and get a ton of sun in our home over the winter. It was great. The tree shed some of her fruit (that's a natural thing to happen) She dropped some of them into my orange tree, I now have a seedling of a Tangelo tree that just popped up. So yes you can grow these from a baby fruit that didn't stay on the tree. So if your tree loses some of the fruit as babies, put them in some dirt and you will get a baby in about a month and a half.

Bought Tangelo tree four months ago; it is now mid january. Tree arrived quickly and well packed. I planted the tree in a pot outdoors and it is growing but fairly slowly...seems to be very healthy. Will have to wait and see how growth continues.

Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

Good reviews and great company reputation. These trees are hard to find in my area and when one can be found it is usually not in the best shape.

I love citrus and already have several species growing and bearing fruit in my garden. Initially I wanted a clementine but as you were out of those I chose the tangelo instead.

If I buy one plant, will it bear fruit?
sue t on Oct 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is self pollinating.
Can this plant be shipped to the Phillipines?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2014
How long until the tree will produce edible fruits?
Anne-Brigitte S on Sep 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We gave our tree to a friend, but when we visited this past winter their home had the most wonderful smell from the orange citrus blossoms, which turned into a bunch of oranges. Most fell, but there are several oranges that are still ripening now and didn't fall prematurely. We bought the 5' tree almost a year ago. They hand pollinated the blossoms with a small paint brush since they are inside where there is no wind or bees to do the pollinating. This may have helped the tree produce better, but perhaps it wasn't strong enough to support that many.
My Tangelo that I got in January Died and I have no idea why, should I get another one or do I live in a place that is just to cold? I live in Pa
Katie on Jun 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Pennsylvania is a little too cold for a Tangelo Tree to grow outdoors, but it could survive if potted and taken inside when temperatures got too cold for it.
Can the tangelo trees be the same type as they need to cross pollinate?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be. I have two and I use one to pollinate the other. I was able to get a ton of Tangelos because of it
I live in Oklahoma, and when you say patio what does that exactly mean? My front porch has a patio and is covered. Would I keep it the tangelo tree on the patio and then when it is warm move the tree out in the sun. Also if it is in a container how big would the tree get?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Having lived in OK as well, Your winters will kill the tree if it is exposed. I live in Albuquerque NM and I bring mine in the house for the winter, once we start getting into the 50's at night. It is supposed to get 8'-12' tall, but I have mine in a big pot, I expect it will not grow past 6' this is my second year... so that is about the limit of my experience!
do squirrels & other rodents like lemon or tangelo trees more?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Although you really have to ask the squirrel itself about its preference we believe that squirrels and rodents enjoy lemon trees more. You can get a bird net to deter rodents and protect your tree.
I have a Meyer Lemon tree already planted. Will that cross pollenate with this tangelo tree? Or do I need to plant more?
Lisa L on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is self-fertile, but will produce a better yield of fruit if it has a mate.
Can I plant this in a container and put it on the back porch? I live in Florida.
Melanie D on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have mine in a container and it is growing and fruiting. It is doing very well. I live in Florida in zone 9.
how far apart should I plant my Tangelo tree? I plan on planting two.
Lisa L on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They can get 4'-6' wide so I'd double that plus one.
Will a dwarf tangerine pollinate a tangelo plant or do I need another tangelo.?
Farmer John on Oct 20, 2015
No you will not need another tangelo tree, it is normally better NOT to pollinate with same type tree but to pollinate with a different type, so with tangelo will work better to have a tangerine tree. This is normally true for all trees, like with plums, peaches, apples, etc. etc. you do not want 2 of the same kind you want 2 different kinds, like 2 different kinds of plums, 2 different kinds of peaches, 2 different kinds of apples, so with any tree always get a different one to pollinate with, it will give you more fruit each year, sounds crazy but that is how it works. You get a better crop by cross pollination and you can cross with any other citrus plant, lemon, grapefruit, and so on. Just like apples and pears will cross pollinate. And peaches,plums and cherries can cross pollinate. Hope this will help you. :)
Is this tree genetically modified (GMO)?
Theresa G on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All trees we sell are all NON-GMO.
Will Tangelo Trees bear fruit without cross pollination? and can they cross pollinate with another Tangelo tree?
Suzi C on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are self pollinating.
