||Citrus reticulata 'Tango'
The Tango Mandarin is a clementine variety with deep orange-colored fruit, smooth skin, sweet-tart juicy flesh and is seedless!
The patio tree is a single trunk style: 24"-48" trunk with a head of leaves and fruit. Perfect for container gardening, as is also the dwarf variety. With fragrant blooms, deep, glossy green leaves and beautiful orange fruit, this will provide year round interest in your garden or home.
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.
||Tango has very richly colored orange flesh, is delicately textured and quite juicy with a full-bodied, sweet flavor when mature. Unlike most mandarin varieties, the Tango is completely seedless!
||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.
