It's not often that you get a fruit named after an exploding star, but when the flavor is as spectacular as the new Super Nova Mandarin (Citrus reticulate Blanco 'SuperNova') the name fits perfectly! The flavor of this little fruit explodes!
This blazing orange fruit is new on the market in the last couple of years, but it's been around for a while. It was first developed in 1966 in Florida, then expanded its reach in Southern California and then really took off in Northern California. It now is poised to rival some other well-known Mandarins, like Cuties and Halos. But you can have your own tree producing for you right now so that when your neighbors are paying big bucks for a bag from the local specialty market you will just be picking them fresh from your backyard!
Starting as drifts of fragrant blossoms, the juicy fruit forms over the late fall and winter among the glossy evergreen foliage. These self-pollinating gems bear fruit that is completely seedless and packed with super sweet juicy flavor!
Reaching a tidy 12 - 15 feet in height, and keeping a slim profile, Super Nova can easily be accommodated by about any sized yard! Use as a fantastic shade tree, year-round accent and privacy screen that looks gorgeous anywhere. The evergreen foliage pulls double duty in the landscape as both ornamental and edible!
Keep pruned smaller yet for an easy-care houseplant in the winter that even northern gardeners can enjoy, simply bring back out onto your porch or patio for the summers, while enjoying the fragrance and fruit indoors all winter! Container gardeners, patio and balconies, anywhere you have good sun, will suit these trees just fine!
Citrus trees thrive in the full sun and lower moisture soil. Be sure to let them dry out a touch between waterings and maintain a slightly acidic, enriched environment that is very well-drained.
So, if you live in a citrusy climate, you will definitely want to add a flavor explosion Super Nova Mandarin Tree to your garden this year. Order yours at NatureHills.com today!
