growing minneola tangerine from seed.
I have grown a minneola from a seed it is now 3years old, looks good and healthy, but as yet it has not flowered. Will it flower some time, or am I too hopeful? Kind regards Lloyd

It may flower one day. From seed, you may be looking at around 10 years to see the first flowers, but maybe as little as 6 or so. It may take several years after that to bear the first fruit, and they may or may not be like the parent. Trees that are grafted will produce in about 3 or 4 years, so you might look into grafting a fruiting branch to your tree, or purchasing an already grafted tree.
Patience will be key here.
