The Dancy Tangerine is a classic heirloom variety, and probably the original tangierine. It is only available to home growers because the delicate skin is too fragile for shipping, so it is no longer grown commercially. The juicy segments just fall out of the zipper skin, and the flavor and sweetness are classic holiday treats. It ripens in December and January and stores well after picking. If you live in an area too cold for growing in the garden, plant it in a large pot and bring it inside during the coldest months.

  • Delicious zipper-skin fruits
  • Harvest in December and January
  • Cold hardy even in zone 8
  • An ideal potted tree for cooler zones
  • Lovely scented blossoms

Grow your Dancy Tangerine in full sun and in any well-drained soil. For potted trees blend one part houseplant soil with three parts of cactus soil, or used a blended soil for citrus trees. Avoid frequent pruning or trimming of outdoor trees, which can reduce flowering. For details on growing in pots, see this blog.
