The Q&A Archives: Tangerine tree doesn't bloom

Question: We had a 3-foot tangerine tree professionally planted in 2005. It bore fruit that year. However, in 2006 it had no blooms or fruit, and there are no blooms this year again. It is growing and seems healthy otherwise. What should we do?

Answer: Since it originally had blooms, we know it's old enough to flower and bear fruit. Sometimes citrus trees can take a full year to become established after transplanting. This can slow production for a year or two. I suspect your tree will flower and bear fruit later this year. Have a little patience - you'll eventually be rewarded!

Best wishes with your tangerine tree!
