The Q&A Archives: Growing Clementine Oranges

Question: Every year at this time I enjoy Clementine oranges from Spain. I'd like to know why they seem to only be grown in Spain; if they can be grown in the US; and if they can be grown in the North in a greenhouse?

Answer: Clementines are a cultivar of tangerines (Citrus reticulata). Tangerines can be grown in pots in greenhouses, so I would think 'Clementine' should also. Thanks to our friends at Seed Savers Exchange, I've found a couple of sources for you, and they should be able to confirm 'Clementine's' likes and dislikes when it comes to greenhouse growing:<br><br>Willits & Newcomb, Inc.
