I just picked 5 pounds of fruit from my tree--the first crop. I planted it not quite 2 years ago, and it is about 4.5 feet tall.

My next door neighbor grows this orange plant in a container in his backyard. The peel just zips off and the fruit is delicious. I can't wait to find one to plant in my yard. Citrus trees do very well planted in the soil here.

This small, sweet juicy tangerine is a cross of Minneola tangelo X Clementine mandarin. Gardner and Bellows of the U.S. Department of Agriculture produced the Page in 1942. In California, it is available December thru March and considered one of the very best of the mandarin varieties available.
