About the Tango Mandarin Tree

The Tango Mandarin Tree – a citrus sensation that will revolutionize your fruit garden! Introduced in 2008, Citrus reticulata ‘Tango’ is a midseason mandarin variety that combines size, flavor, and ease of growth like no other. With its deep, orange-colored skin and oval shape, Tango is not only visually appealing but also incredibly productive.

The fruit boasts a juicy, seedless, and deep orange flesh that is both slightly acidic and sweet, delivering a rich and refreshing flavor. Its relatively thin rind is smooth and easy to peel, allowing for effortless snacking. Like ‘cuties’ but with deep orange color and fruit quality nothing like what you’d find in a store. Tango is known for its superb hang time of up to 3 months. The Mandarin Oranges ripen over the winter months, ensuring a bountiful harvest.

How to Grow a Tango Mandarin Tree

Tango Mandarin Tree is low-maintenance and thrives in full sun with at least 8 hours of direct sunlight. Its fragrant white blossoms add a delightful touch to your outdoor space.

This versatile tree can be pruned to any desired size, making it suitable for container planting or as a screening option in your garden. Reaching a height of 15 feet with a 6-foot spread, the Hardiness zones 8 to 10 are ideal, but it can be grown in containers from zone 4 to 11. Elevating the planting area and providing well-drained soil are key to its success. Give your garden a Tango twist and indulge in the ultimate citrus experience!
