For a fruit tree that the whole family will love, plant your very own Clementine Tree. These trees produce delectable fruit that is rich in vitamin C, calcium and potassium. Children and adults love the juicy flavor, as well as the loose skin that is incredibly easy to peel. With this fruit, you don't have to worry about annoying seeds, as clementines are virtually seedless.
Clementine trees produce an abundance of bright orange-colored fruit all year. If you live in a colder climate, bring your potted clementine plant indoors during the winter months. Place it beside a sunny window, and you'll be able to enjoy fresh clementines even in December. The shiny green leaves add rich color and provide the perfect backdrop to enhance the deep vibrancy of the clementines themselves.
For a low-maintenance tree, clementine trees are the perfect choice. They are hardy against pests and disease, and you can grow them organically without having to worry about complications. Clementine trees can be planted in the outdoors to reach full heights of six to eight feet and widths of four to six feet, or you can trim them back and grow them as patio plants. Either way, you'll have delicious fruit that you can eat right off the tree.
Clementine trees are best for zones 4 through 11 when grown as a patio plant and zones 8 through 11 when planted outdoors. With the combination of these planting options, clementine trees can be grown almost anywhere in North America. The trees prefer full to partial sun, and they have a good drought tolerance.
Clementines are a great snack both at home and on the go. One clementine gives a child 8-years-old or younger the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C. Children 9- through 18-years old can get the recommended amount with just two clementines, and for adults, two clementines provide over two-thirds of the daily allowance. Clearly, this little clementine holds within it a dazzling volume of nutritional value. Children love clementines so much that you'll be able to sneak in this nutrition without them being any the wiser. All they'll know is that they're eating a delicious, mouth-watering snack.
Your clementine tree will be delivered to you carefully pruned back for optimal growth. All of our trees are guaranteed non-GMO, so you can rest assured about the quality of your clementine.
