Massachusetts Satsuma

(1/2) > >>

Here's a few pictures of my Early St. Ann satsuma outside in Massachusetts.  It's been in the ground for two winters now.

June 2012, just after planting (It did not take shipping well)

No flowers this year, but it did set a good number of fruit for the trees size last year.

This is what it looks like in winter (the snow drift is ~4.5 ft deep)

I used to live up there.  It blows my mind that you are doing this.  Awesome!

Scott what are your winter protection plans for this tree when it grows into a large tree? - Millet

Bob, with my current arrangement, I should be able to protect it up until it is around 5.5-6ft tall.  After that, I'll have to start a program of selective pruning.  At the rate it is growing, I'd guess I still have 3-4 years before I need to worry about it.

Simply awesome. And i bet that eating your own satsuma is the best sensation ever. :)
