The tangelo is a cross between mandarin and grapefruit. Minneola is the most well-known of the tangelo varieties commonly available in Australia. The fruit ripens in winter and is round or bell shaped with a distinct neck at the top. It has loose skin that is easy to peel, the flesh is very juicy and has a sweet flavour with slight grapefruit characteristics. The tree is a medium grower, reaching to 5 metres in good conditions and the dark orange fruit contrasts beautifully against the glossy, green leaves.
We post both dwarf and regular citrus, but are only able to post young trees due to the weight and the practicality of transporting a package with a living tree.
- All our trees are sent via the standard Australia Post service and once posted we can’t guarantee arrival time, although we are provided with a tracking number.
- We post on Monday to provide the best chance our trees arrive at their destination within that working week, although there are sometimes exceptions to this. Orders received on Monday will be sent the following Monday.
- We send our trees in specially designed plant postage boxes and pack them carefully to ensure they arrive in good condition.
- As many of our regular citrus trees are almost 1 metre tall, the price of postage reflects the size and weight of the trees and our packing and handling costs.
- We are currently posting to the East Coast of Australia, as far north as the Sunshine Coast and are unable to send to Tasmania, South Australia, Northern Territory or Western Australia due to quarantine restrictions.
- Our dwarf trees are in a 5 litre bag and our regular citrus trees are in either a 200mm pot or a 12 litre bag.
- All trees are between 2.5 – 3 years old. Our trees range in size depending on variety but expect them to be between 40cm – 1m in height from the top of the pot.
- Our postage boxes are 1 metre tall and the trees, particularly our regular citrus may have to be trimmed to fit into the box the pot adds to the size of the tree.
