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.
