The Page Mandarin Tree

A page mandarin tree is three-fourths mandarin and one-fourth grapefruit. This is called a tantangelo.  It’s cross between the Minneola tangelo and the Clementine mandarin. This citrus tree’s appearance is bushy with upright growth habit. It flowers abundantly and bears medium-sized fruit. Excellent mandarin choice for juicing. When indoors, fill your potting tray with water as this cultivar likes lots of humidity to produce and hold fruit.
