That is the result of a long 11 months of nurturing one satsuma orange tree. It bloomed in late January after dropping all its leaves, causing me to think it dead. In March, little green oranges showed up. We lost a couple over the summer but in the end, we got 18 oranges that have a great taste.
Satsumas are actually easy to grow in North Texas as long as you can bring them in when it gets to 25 degrees or colder. I’ll probably replant this one in a 20 gallon container this week and then hope that we get another good crop next year.
I’d like to try my hand at other citrus but need a greenhouse to really have much luck in DFW.
