Satsuma Miho Wase Naartjie 20L


The Satsuma Naartjie is sweet, juicy, delicious, and seedless.

Satsuma cultivars stand out as the earliest ripening option among soft citrus fruits. Dominating the Satsuma landscape is the Miho Wase variety, constituting a significant 85% of the total Satsuma production.

Miho Wase also claims the title of the earliest maturing Satsuma cultivar, with its harvest commencing as early as mid-March. While other Satsuma cultivars continue to be harvested, Miho Wase takes the lead, concluding its harvesting period around the end of May.

It grows easily in containers, making it ideal for homes with small gardens or patios. These trees do not need to be pollinated by another tree and can bear fruit alone.

Satsuma Naartjie has high levels of vitamins C and A, and also contains dietary fibre, manganese and potassium.

The Satsuma Naartjie tree thrives in hot, humid conditions and full sun. The fruits have a thin skin and are susceptible to the cold and frost. Plant your trees about 3.5 to 5 metres apart to allow for their canopy to spread.


Depending on the soil, climate conditions and care, your Satsuma can grow between 3.5 and 7.5 metres tall.

Soil Type

Satsuma Naartjie needs well-draining, healthy, sandy soil with a neutral pH. If your soil’s drainage isn’t optimal, plant your tree on a bit of a mound so the soil doesn’t become waterlogged.


This tree thrives with a layer of mulch to protect its roots from drying out. Our pine bark mulch is perfect for citrus trees.


Your tree needs to be well watered for the best fruits. In summer and spring, increase your watering so that the tree doesn’t dry out in the heat.


To get the most out of your naartjie tree, feed it with fertiliser in spring and summer. If the leaves start to yellow, your plant may not have enough magnesium. Apply a little Epsom salts to the tree’s drip line (where the leaves extend their reach). Apply slow-release citrus fertilizer during the harvest season and repeat after the fruiting period. Utilising our slow-release fertiliser is a must for citrus; even though it is called berry fertiliser it is for all plants/trees.


You may decide to prune your tree if you need to keep its spread under control, prefer a particular shape, or have diseased or dead branches that are sapping it of its vital energy. It’s also important not to cut it unnecessarily, especially while young.

Pest and Disease Management: 

It is important to watch out for pests like aphids, scale insects, and mites. Remove leaves that are bubbly and dispose of  them immediately. We recommend Effective Microorganisms to prevent the spread of these pests and diseases. Hose the tree first, to remove the aphids, and then spray well with EM Control. As they tree grows larger it will be healthy and pests will be a thing of the past.


Pick your naartjies when they have turned from green to a beautiful orange colour. Clip or twist them carefully from the tree. If they’re ripe and you know rains are coming, try to take them off before the rains, which can cause the fruits to spoil.
