About the Ponkan Mandarin Tree

A popular mandarin orange for any garden! The Ponkan is one of the most sought-after mandarin fruit trees. Gardeners appreciate this mandarin for its attractive dark leaves, fragrant blooms, and delicious citrus. This upright tree is a beautiful addition to any landscape and does well in containers.

Ponkan Mandarin oranges are medium-sized and oblong in shape. They are prized for their rich, sweet flavor and the fruit is easy to peel, making it ideal for snacking. Enjoy fresh mandarins straight from the tree, or use them in a variety of recipes, from salads and desserts to marinades and baked goods. It’s the healthy snack kids love!

How to Grow Ponkan Mandarin Trees

Mandarin orange trees are easy to grow! In terms of pest control, mandarin orange trees are relatively hardy and can tolerate a range of insect and disease pressures. When planting a mandarin orange tree, choose a location that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight each day and has well-draining soil.

The Ponkan Mandarin orange is cold hardy down to low temperatures of about 30 degrees, so they are more suitable for cooler locations than some other sensitive citrus varieties. It can be grown as a potted patio plant, just bring it indoors during the cold months and place it near a sunny window. For best results, apply regular applications of fertilizer, particularly during the growing season. Use a citrus-specific fertilizer and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for application rates.

Plant the Ponkan Mandarin tree to enjoy a bountiful harvest of homegrown citrus the whole family will enjoy!
