Semi-Dwarf vs. Standard citrus trees:
The difference between a semi-dwarf tree and a standard tree is the mature height. Semi-dwarf citrus trees are smaller and grow to approximately two-thirds the size of a standard tree form. Depending on the position of the lower branches on the trunk, a semi-dwarf citrus can look like a bush with a short trunk, or a tree with a trunk.
The mature height of a Clementine Mandarin tree based on average growing conditions is:
Semi-Dwarf tree: 8-15 ft. tall.
Standard tree: 15-20 ft. tall.
In containers, the Clementine Mandarin tree will be smaller and can easily be pruned to maintain a desired size.
The mature height and fruit production of your citrus tree will depend on several environmental factors such as climate, light, soil type, texture, fertility and moisture, and pruning practices. Your citrus tree can easily be maintained at a smaller size with annual pruning.
