Customer Reviews & Photos
The product was delivered in a timely manner. I should have purchased the six foot tall trees. I will have to wait to see how well the trees adapted to the soil before I evaluate their success.
Very happy with our first citrus tree
Our tree was packaged very nicely and arrived in good time. Only one branch needed to be be snipped. We followed all of the transplanting instructions and we are watching the yellowed leaves to make sure we aren't doing something wrong for our tree.
We've had this tree well over a year and it is doing great. Not the fastest grower but solid growth and good fruit output. It's also a beautiful even tropical-ornamental tree. The flowers are sooo fragrant! They should make a perfume out of them. Watch for giant swallowtail caterpillars! They love the leaves.
It was great when I first received it but after a few months it died out of nowhere. I kept it in a pot because of the unpredictable weather but I thought the plant was flourishing. Guess not.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, around 6 to 8 hours of sun per day. They can tolerate some shade but thrive in full sun and well-drained soil.
When you're ready to plant your Tangelo, dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system. Place the tree in the hole and backfill your soil, and water for about five minutes. Mulching around the tree will help insulate the roots and keep your plant warm in the colder winter months as well.
If you're container planting, choose a pot slightly larger than the shipped container, with plenty of holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. Then, place your tree, backfill with balanced potting soil, and leave about an inch from the soil surface to the rim of the pot for easy watering.
Finally, place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight.
2. Watering: After watering about once or twice weekly, allow the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again.
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 drier at that depth. When you do water your Tangelo, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Tangelo Tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer, like the one included in our Citrus Care Kit, once every six weeks. During the fall and winter, fertilize once every 2 to 3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit, you can skip the cold season fertilization. Make sure to follow your fertilizer's application instructions.
4. Pruning: 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. 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 well. Pruning can be done at any time of the year for the potted Tangelo and any time of year for the in-ground Tangelo, aside from winter.
5. Pollination: Our trees are self-fertile, but you can pollinate your indoor trees by hand, taking a small, dry, fine-tipped paintbrush and swirling it around the center of each bloom to collect the pollen. 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 blooms will fall and fruit will grow from there.
