    America’s Tangerine Sweetheart

    America’s love affair with the Dancy Tangerine (Citrus reticulata ‘Dancy’) has continued for more than 150 years. As the standard against which other tangerines are compared, the Dancy Tangerine was formerly the most popular variety produced by commercial citrus growers. But now we have these classic trees available for your backyard. Even if you’re a novice gardener who has never grown citrus trees, you can easily grow your own Dancy Tangerines!

    Big Benefits in a Small Package
    Don’t underestimate the small size of Dancy Tangerine trees or fruits – this is a powerhouse of a plant with multiple benefits, including:

    Sweet fruits. Even though Dancy Tangerines are just over 2 inches across, they are packed with sweetness and loaded with Vitamin C and fiber. You’ll be able to enjoy them at the peak of flavor and freshness by walking outside and picking them from your own trees!

    Easy to peel. Dancy Tangerines are commonly called “zipper fruits” because they’re so easy to peel. You won’t even need a knife or other utensil to remove the flavorful orange sections inside. Simply run your finger underneath the soft rind of a ripe fruit and you can easily remove the peel.

    Container friendly. Dancy Tangerine trees are perfectly sized for smaller landscapes, and they’re even easier to grow in patio pots!

    Patio Pot Perfection
    If you live in USDA Plant Hardiness zones 9 through 11, Dancy Tangerine is a beautiful landscape plant. But for gardeners in all other zones, this small evergreen tree is an outstanding container plant. Picture orange tangerines against evergreen glossy leaves and you’ll have an idea of how pretty it is planted in a large pot. In spring, you’ll have another treat – small, fragrant flowers that perfume the air with a familiar orange-blossom scent! When temperatures dip into the forties in autumn, move the pot indoors to a bright-light location, such as a sunny room or solarium.

    Easy Care Tips
    Dancy Tangerine trees are self-fruitful, which means you won’t need another tree for cross-pollination. But if you plant more than one tree, you’ll have lots more fruit! You may find, however, that every other year brings lighter harvests, because Dancy Tangerine trees are typically alternate-bearing. Plant your tree where it receives lots of sun so it will produce the most fruit. Make sure it receives plenty of water, especially during the first year after transplanting and every year when the fruits are developing. Plant it on a site that has well-draining soil. Use a fertilizer that’s labeled for citrus trees at the rate and frequency that a soil test determines. And don’t forget to protect it by moving it indoors or covering it when frost threatens!
