Clementines (also known as Mandarin oranges, Satsuma oranges or tangerines) produce small, thin-skinned fruit with a wonderful sweet flavor. Most often eaten freshly peeled, the small slices are very popular for adding to lettuce, gelatin, or mixed fruit salads. Mandarin trees are smaller than standard orange trees and are ideal for small space gardens or containers. The attractive glossy foliage adds a tropical feel to any setting.
Utilize citrus trees in the landscape just like any ornamental tree. Give enough space that light is available from all sides, away from the shade of larger trees or buildings. A great plant for large patio containers where the fragrant flowers can be enjoyed and the fruit easily picked. Can also be grown indoors if space and ample sunlight can be provided.
