tangerine seeds


Just for fun I decided to start tangerine seeds today. I love having small citrus trees as houseplants. I've started orange and lemon seeds many times but never tangerines. I'll post progress pictures

Hi Pink,
How big will it get? I assume you would have to keep indoors over the winter months? Whooo Boy, you've more energy than I do. Do the seeds have to be kept cold for any period of time, or since they are more tropical, can you just plant and wait?

Cindy - They must be sown fresh - and they are a big tree by nature - You can keep them small in a pot - or, as big as you want them to be - in a pot.

good luck and have fun with them pink. i started a number of citrus trees last winter. they are about 6 inches or so tall now. i started them in paper towels and then planted them. had pretty much a 100 % germination rate but some of them didn't live after planting.

Great idea Pink. I have some I'm going to sow. If they should survive I will dwarf them

Oh Pink...how fun!


I currently have three tangerine seedlings that I grew from seeds...in a sunny south window. Seeing your thread today actually reminded me that they needed watering!

Yes yes....of course you gotta keep one for you, Pink!


I have my three seedlings in front of a huge clay pot in my south window and forgot about them for a couple weeks! Lol. They were pretty dry yesterday when I checked them. Thanks to your thread...or they might have died from thirst!


Good luck with your little tangerines, Pink. Such fun to grow and the leaves smell wonderful.


So excited to watch yours grow!
