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!

Planting and Application:

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.
