Citrus reticulata. Gold Nugget mandarin bears after Owari satsuma, extending the tangerine season through June. And it extends the season with a bang. Gold Nugget is marvelously flavorful and sweet, usually seedless, and easy to peel. Tree is more upright and vigorous than Owari, but shares the same cold hardiness, down to about 25 degrees F. Most recent introduction by UC Riverside in many years. Grown on dwarfing rootstock in 5 gal containers. Trees as of May 2017 are small, about 2' tall, new growth forming. Shipped in 3' x 1' x 1' braced containers.
