Pollination and Fruiting Season
The Nules Clementine Tree is self-pollinating, so it can produce plenty of fruit without any other citrus trees. Because of this, it is a perfect choice to grow indoors or away from other plants. Nules Clementines start producing in November and continue until January. They usually stop bearing fruit by February. Clementines should be picked immediately when ripe and stored in a cool, dry environment. Clementines will remain fresh and juicy for up to two weeks if refrigerated. They should be stored in a container with plenty of ventilation.
Best Time to Plant
The Nules Clementine Tree can be planted year-round as long as the ground isn't frozen. If you live in a climate that experiences cooler weather, it's suggested that you grow your tree in a garden pot that can be moved indoors in full sunlight when the temperature drops.
