||Citrus reticulata 'Page'
The Page Mandarin is a delicious cross between a Clementine mandarin and Minneola tangelo. Known for its long hang time on the tree and magnificent, sweet flavor. This lovely tree is evergreen with shiny, dark green leaves that set off the small, deep orange fruit.
This is a lovely specimen tree with deep, glossy, evergreen leaves and wonderfully fragrant flowers. In addition, this is a highly productive fruit tree with sweet, delicious fruit. Yield will increase when planted among other mandarin varieties, but not necessary.
Fragrant, long-blooming citrus trees are perfect for the Northern California garden. Their evergreen nature provides rich green color all year round. Not to mention the abundant and delicious fruit you will harvest.
||Page Mandarins have thin, easy-to-peel skin with delicious, juicy, sweet flavor and tender flesh. Great for snacking, salads, sauces and beverages.
||Upright or Bushy, depending on pruning. Moderate grower.
||Container, espalier, ground
||Full Sun (minimum 6 hours, 8+ is preferred).
||Moist, very well-draining soil. Never soggy; make sure not to over-water. Prefers deep, infrequent watering to sporadic light watering.
|Planting and Care Tip:
||All citrus require full sun. Citrus are heavy feeders. Fertilize in late winter before bloom and regularly throughout growing season. Do not fertilize in winter. Prune in early spring, after fear of frost to desired shape. Newly planted should not be pruned for the first 2-3 years, except to remove suckers below the scion graft.
