Q.Tangelo trees never flowered

Zone Holly Springs, GA | Goodmankt added on August 21, 2016 | Answered

I have 2 tangelo trees that I grew from seed 6 years ago. I have lived in NC and IN since. I have them in large pots and keep them inside during the winter. Every year they get new growth but have never produced flowers/ fruit. I just moved to GA a month ago and they are loving the weather. Why haven’t they had blossoms?

These articles are about oranges but are relevant to all citrus trees:
