Tangerine is no doubt one of the most popular and delicious citric fruits. Despite its incredibly tasty flavor, the tangerine offers various health benefits at the same time. These autumnal fruits boost the immune system, fight inflammations, promote the proper function of the lungs, and much more.
Yet, not many are aware of the fact that these fruits can be cultivated at home, in flowerpots or in the garden. We will provide all the needed information on how to grow your own tangerines at home:
You will need a medium- sized flowerpot with holes at the bottom for drainage. Lace small stones on its bottom, and use organic soil for better drainage. Additionally, use a bit of sand on the ground for better ventilation. Next, sow the tangerine seeds, cover them well, but do not press them firmly into the soil. Place the flowerpot on some sunny place.
You should occasionally add a fertilizer high in magnesium, zinc, and iron.
When the soil is dry to an inch deep, water the tangerines. Do not forget to cut the withered and broken branches.
When you gather your fruits, you should be gentle and careful, in order not to cause any damage.
Now you can enjoy your own, pesticide-free tangerines, and avoid the sprayed ones at the market, which are rich in chemicals that seriously damage health!
