Why Get an Owari Satsuma Tree?
• Seedless fruit ripens early
• Great in your yard or potted on your patio
• Extremely cold-hardy
• Incredibly fragrant blooms
Where Does the Owari Satsuma Tree Grow Best?
This tree grows anywhere in the country as a patio plant. Just pot it up in a container and bring it indoors when the evening temperatures dip below 15 degrees Fahrenheit and place it near a sunny window. If you prefer to plant it in-ground, it prefers to be in Growing Zones 9-11.
Is it Easy to Grow the Owari Satsuma Tree Organically?
Because it is naturally resistant to pests and disease, your Owari Satsuma Tree does not require the use of chemical sprays. Simply use organic fertilizer when needed.
How Much Fruit Will I Get?
Owari Satsuma Trees are considered heavy producers. Just one mature tree can produce 40 to 50 pounds of fruit per year.
What Does the Owari Satsuma Taste Like?
The Owari Satsuma is a seedless citrus, made famous because of its honey-sweet, juicy flavor. The peel isn't attached to the rind, so it is very easy to eat. It's a quick, healthy, and fun snack!
Pollination and Fruiting Season
Like most citrus trees, the Owari Satsuma is self-pollinating. Wind and bees will naturally stimulate this when your tree is outside. You can help it produce fruit by taking a small brush or cotton swab and spreading pollen from one flower to another. The Owari Satsuma is ripe and ready for eating beginning in November and early December. The fruit does not hold well on the tree once ripe, but picked fruit will last for a few days if kept in a cool place.
Best Time to Plant
If grown in a garden pot, the Owari Satsuma Tree can be planted at any time of year as long as it is given adequate sun and kept in above freezing temperatures. If planting outdoors, just make sure your ground isn't frozen.
Due to agricultural restrictions, we cannot ship the Owari Satsuma to AZ, CA, FL, LA, SC, or TX.
