Owari, be Happy
A truly unique and rewarding find, the Owari Satsuma Tree will add character and charm to your garden or patio almost instantly.  Aside from its good looks, you’ll enjoy a healthy return of delicious mandarin oranges beginning in autumn all the way through early winter.  Fragrant, white blooms will lure butterflies into your garden, where you can expect the Owari to slowly grow to a mature height of up to 12 feet.  But you can easily pot this lovely tree and enjoy the deep green leaves and bright orange fruit that complement them right on your patio.

Tastes so Good, Peels so Easy
Patience is a virtue, but not one you’ll need to tear into the mouth-watering Owari mandarin oranges your tree will produce.  That’s because they are the easiest fruit to peel, bar none.  Its trademark “zipper” rind literally separates from the inner pulp upon maturity.  So peeling the skin is a cinch.  And here’s the kicker: there’s no seeds. That makes for clean, easy, delicious snacking for all ages.  And the flavor will awaken the most discerning taste buds. The naturally sweet, almost honey-like flavor from this juicy mandarin makes it a great snack to take on trips, pack in kids’ lunchboxes, or eat right off the tree.

Organic Owari translates to Healthy, Delicious Oranges
As if this tree weren’t already a no-brainer to add to your garden, here’s another positive attribute of the Owari Satsuma:  it’s one tough customer.  While most insects disappear in the cold of winter, the Owari is cold tolerant down to temperatures in the mid 20's F.  An ancient tree with its roots in Japan, this tree has had many years to perfect its resistance to pests and diseases.  So you won’t need to rely on chemicals or sprays and can enjoy healthy fruit grown organically right at home.

This tree can be grown in a container anywhere in the US.

1 Year Old Trees

For Citrus trees up to a year old, expect heights of about a foot and a half tall and a trunk diameter of about a quarter of an inch.  Early growth should take place in a 4 by 10 inch container of soil.  As the tree continues to grow, repot it into a larger container so the roots have room to grow.

2 Year Old Trees

Standing at a height of about two feet tall with a trunk diameter less than half an inch, our 2 year old trees are set in a one gallon container of soil.  Once established, repot into a larger pot within a few months of delivery, or when roots begin to show through drainage holes.

3 Year Old Trees

More fully developed in both its branches and root system, the three year-old trees have trunks about half an inch in diameter and are more substantial in size and development than the other two sizes. Once you receive your new tree, gently plant it in a container about a foot wide. They can also be planted directly in the ground in suitable climates.

4-5 Year Old Trees

If you want fruit fast, this is the tree size for you. Our 4-5 year old trees stand at a height of about 3.5-5 feet tall. Some are already producing fruit before we ship them! The roots and branches are more developed than the younger trees. If you are not planting it in the ground, we recommend a small to medium-sized pot for planting.
