There is a reason that they call this tree 'Honey'. Of all of the Mandarins, the California Honey Mandarin Tree (Citrus x reticulata 'California Honey') consistently ranks as the best tasting and smelling of all the Mandarin and Tangerine trees available!
You won't find the California Honey in your local grocery store. The fruits are on the small side and have more seeds than commercial industries like. Their loss is your gain, though! One taste of this and you'll be spoiled from any store-bought fruit again! This Citrus is very juicy and tastes like spiced honey.
The fragrant white flowers emerge in late spring and produce the delicious fruit which ripens November through April. The shrubby trees have dark willowy leaves and are beautiful on their own, with or without fruit!
These are perfect ornamental landscaping trees, retaining their evergreen foliage year-round, you'll also enjoy the scented blooms and dangling gems. We're certain a specimen planting or privacy hedgerow of these trees will turn heads!
If you live in a colder climate, simply plant them in a container. Bring your tree indoors near a sunny window, and let the intoxicating citrus scent brighten your home during cold winter days.
Like all of our Citrus, these trees are a minimum of three years old, have extensive branching, and have some of the largest root systems available. We take pride in delivering you the highest quality citrus trees with healthy roots and full, well-established stems and foliage.
For the sweetest most flavorful Mandarin on the market, you'll be glad you didn't wait and got yourself or that special someone this beautiful tree! Order a California Honey Mandarin Tree now before they sell out and enjoy the benefits of growing your own Citrus fruit anywhere in the U.S.!
