Add a little zest to your garden! Citrus trees are potted, evergreen, semi-dwarf, 1 ½-years-old, pencil caliper, 18”-24” tall from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree. They will, with good care, produce fragrant, self-pollinating flowers and wonderful fruit. Height 8’–12’, but can be pruned to suit in ground or in containers. Choose a sunny location, in well drained soil, sheltered from wind. They are affected by below freezing temperatures, and in many locales require cold protection. Most tender to most hardy: Bearss Lime, lemons, orange, tangelo, grapefruit, mandarin, kumquat. Non-taxable. These are evergreen trees and thus the dormant bare root guarantee does not apply. Your trees will arrive in good, viable condition. Contact us immediately if they do not.
