The Page Mandarin is a delicious cross between a Minneola tangelo and Clementine Mandarin. This fruit, which resembles a small, sweet orange, is prized for its early ripening and high-quality flavor.
Well-known for its long hang time and reported to remain on the tree for as long as four months, many believe the Page to be the finest of all Mandarins. The facts that it ripens early, has a long hang time, and is small to medium in size all contribute to its popularity. But the unusual flavor derived from its complex cross-breeding makes the Page one of the most flavorful fruits you’ll ever encounter.
This round fruit is a deep orange. Its thin rind is also deep reddish orange and easy to peel. The tree’s leaves are shiny, dark green and leathery.
The Page Mandarin makes an excellent container plant, since it can be easily pruned to any desired size. It’s also a good choice to include in your citrus grove, and will be most productive in the company of pollinator trees. Good choices to plant alongside of it are other Mandarins or Valencia oranges.
If you live in a colder climate, and plant them in a container, bring your trees indoors to ride out the winter near a sunny window, where the invigorating citrus scent can brighten your home during the colder months.
Order yours now before they sell out for the year, so you can enjoy the benefits of growing your own citrus fruit anywhere in the United States.
