Sweet, Juicy Fruit Page Mandarin

  • Prolific, Sweet, Juicy Fruit
  • Early Season
  • Lovely Foliage
  • Grow Indoors & Out
  • Very Long Hang Time

The Page Mandarin is a delicious cross between a Minneola tangelo and Clementine Mandarin. This fruit, which resembles a small, sweet orange, is prized for its early ripening and high-quality flavor.

Well-known for its long hang time and reported to remain on the tree for as long as four months, many believe the Page to be the finest of all Mandarins. The facts that it ripens early, has a long hang time, and is small to medium in size all contribute to its popularity. But the unusual flavor derived from its complex cross-breeding makes the Page one of the most flavorful fruits you'll ever encounter.

This round fruit is a deep orange. Its thin rind is also deep reddish orange and easy to peel. The tree's leaves are shiny, dark green and leathery.

The Page Mandarin makes an excellent container plant, since it can be easily pruned to any desired size. It's also a good choice to include in your citrus grove, and will be most productive in the company of pollinator trees. Good choices to plant alongside of it are other Mandarins or Valencia oranges.

If you live in a colder climate, and plant them in a container, bring your trees indoors to ride out the winter near a sunny window, where the invigorating citrus scent can brighten your home during the colder months.

Order yours now before they sell out for the year, so you can enjoy the benefits of growing your own citrus fruit anywhere in the United States.

Unique History, Complex Flavor, Easy to Love

In 1963, the Page Mandarin was introduced as a sweet orange by P.C. Reece and F.E. Gardener of the US Horticultural Field Station in Orlando, Florida. They recognized the Page Mandarin for its early ripening, high quality flavor, and the fact that it resembled a small, sweet orange.

But in fact, Page isn't a mandarin or an orange. The Page Mandarin is actually a hybrid tangelo.

But in fact, Page isn't a mandarin or an orange. The Page Mandarin is actually a hybrid tangelo.

The Minneola Tangelo is a cross between a Duncan Grapefruit and a Dancy Mandarin. This means that the Page Mandarin has 25% grapefruit in its lineage. More recent genetic research suggest that the Clementine Mandarin is, in fact, a cross between the 50% mandarin, 25% grapefruit and 25% of an unknown, sweet orange variety.

Known for its long hang time, reported to stay on the tree for up to 4 months, it is very easy to understand why many consider the Page to be the finest of all mandarins. Its early ripening, long hang time, and small to medium size make it easy to enjoy. But it's the extra fine flavor coming from its complex crossing that makes the Page one of the most flavorful fruits available, no matter what you call it. You'll love the complexity of flavor.
