Marisol Clementine Tangerine Tree – Citrus Clementine ‘Marisol’
One of the earliest ripening of the Clementine’s, usually showing up at the markets several weeks ahead of the other varieties. It’s a good choice for short season growers that need their fruit to ripen before cold weather sets in. Marisol Clementine trees produce deep orange-red, predominantly seedless fruit that are easy to peel, and wonderfully aromatic. Clementine tangerines are famous the world over, with many new introductions arriving in this country. Most people enjoy them due of the seedless factor and rich flavor. They are only seedless if grown in isolation from other citrus varieties (if they cross pollinate with other citrus they may be seedy) For higher yields and (sigh) some seeds it’s best to pollinate with Orlando Tangelo or Page Orange. Fruit ripens October to December. Self fertile. Zones 8B-10.
