Whether you’re charmed by the sweet, succulent Mandarin, the cold-hardy Satsuma, or the seedless Clementine, our array of tangerines will be sure to captivate your senses and enhance your garden. Celebrated for their sun-kissed fruit and robust nature, these citrus gems are a joy to grow and an enticing addition to any garden space.

Thriving in sunny, well-draining locations, Tangerine trees exhibit an evergreen charm that makes them an eye-catching piece all year round. In spring, they unfurl a display of delicate white flowers, filling your garden with a delightful, fragrant aroma. As the seasons transition, the trees become adorned with brilliant orange fruit, offering an uplifting display against winter’s chill.

Each of our tangerine varieties has its own unique appeal. Mandarin tangerines will delight you with their perfect harmony of tart and sweet, while the easy-to-peel skin of the Satsumas and the seedless bounty of the Clementines offer a wonderful ease of enjoyment. Whether consumed fresh, included in salads, or turned into a refreshing juice, the versatility of tangerines will surely inspire your culinary adventures.

Limited space doesn’t mean you have to miss out on this citrus joy! Tangerine trees adapt well to container growing, so even if you’re an urban gardener or space-constrained, you can still savor the delight of sun-ripened, homegrown tangerines.

With our Tangerine Trees, Fruitscaping™ becomes an enchanting journey from mindful planting and nurturing to the gratification of tasting your own sun-kissed harvest. Let the adventure of Fruitscaping™ unfold with our Tangerine Trees.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
