Dwarf Cleopatra Mandarin

Excellent Patio or House Plant

Compact habit makes this citrus ideal for containers. Growing 2-3 ft. tall with a similar spread, its glossy-green, narrow leaves provide year-round beauty while its fragrant white blossoms and fruits perfume the air. Begins bearing small, orange-red, very flavorful fruits after 2-3 years. Fruits have loose skin, some seeds, and are juicy and tender. Can be grown in zones 9-10 with no special protection. In areas north of zone 9, move the plant indoors when the weather cools. Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Potted. Zones 9-10.
