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

Tangelo Tree Planting Diretions

The Tangelo Tree (Citrus x tangelo) is a hassle free, reliable, fruit producing tree that will grow a bountiful harvest of citrus every year. This is an easily grown, nutritious tree whether it’s home is in your garden or in a container. Tangelos are more substantial than tangerines and they’ve been found to be more juicy and flavorful. These slow growing trees are commonly found outdoors in USDA growing zones 8-11 but will do just as well in a container inside your home during the colder months. The Tangelo is a semi-dwarf tree maturing to a height of 8-12 feet tall and about 6-8 feet wide making it a great fit for smaller areas!

Seasonal Information: Tangelo 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 Tangelo 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 Tangelo 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 Tangelo 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 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: Tangelos 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 overwatering 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 Tangelos, 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 Tangelo 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 Tangelo 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 Tangelos 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 Tangelo.

If I buy one plant, will it bear fruit?
sue t on Oct 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is self pollinating.
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
do squirrels & other rodents like lemon or tangelo trees more?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They do not bother mine at all. I don't think they are interested in citrus.
Is this tree genetically modified (GMO)?
Theresa G on Mar 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All trees we sell are all NON-GMO.
Will a dwarf tangerine pollinate a tangelo plant or do I need another tangelo.?
Farmer John on Oct 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Citrus are self fertile so you do not technically need a second one. However, they will be more prolific with two. You would need another Tangelo.
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.
