Orange Frost™ Hardy Satsuma; Citrus for the Home Garden
Need a novel addition to the landscape? With Orange Frost™ Hardy Satsuma from Garden Debut®, add both nutrition and beauty to the edible garden. These small, spreading evergreen trees are cold tolerant to 15 degrees F. and grow to about 10 feet tall by 10 feet wide.
The fruit on Orange Frost™ Satsuma Mandarin Orange is a brilliant orange and contrasts well with glossy, dark evergreen foliage. Like other citrus, the white flowers in spring add a heady fragrance of orange blossoms, celebrated for centuries. There are many recipes that include the juicy, delicious, nearly-seedless and easy-peeling fruit, ranging from endive-satsuma salad to home-steeped “Satsumacello” liqueur (find recipes at http://Plant Preview.blogspot.com ).
While cold hardy only in subtropical regions (U.S.D.A. Zones 8B- 11), Orange Frost™ Hardy Satsuma may be grown everywhere in large tubs that are brought indoors to a greenhouse or sunroom in colder climates for winter protection. Wintertime is when the brilliant fruits ripen, creating a striking ornamental tree.
