Available Fruit Tree Options
Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape offers home-grown trees that you can be sure will thrive in your local area. Choose among our many citrus options for a hardy, beautiful addition to your landscape:
- Tangelo Tree
A tangerine/grapefruit combo, the tangelo tree can sustain the occasional cooler winter within USDA Zone 9 and adapts well to a variety of planting conditions. While planting, remember that the soil must drain well. The tree will also grow and produce fruit better if it faces the south. Although Tangelo Trees are self-fertile, and you only need one plant to produce fruit, you can produce a bigger crop by adding an additional Tangelo Tree.
- Orange Tree
If you’re lucky enough to live in Southwest Florida, you should take advantage of it by growing your own fruit! Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape offers container bound orange trees. When planting, make sure that the tree will receive plenty of sun in the location chosen. It should also have soil that drains well and be at least 15 feet away from other trees or buildings to allow access to sun and plenty of room for the roots to grow.
- Lemon Tree
The lemon tree is somewhat vulnerable to cold winters, but it will survive if it is planted facing the south, protected from the occasional frost, and given plenty of sun for growth. Make sure to mulch and water well once a week even after the tree has become acclimated to its new home on your property. You shouldn’t expect an actual lemon until the lemon tree is at least three years old.
- Cocktail Tree
While it sounds like something directly from a fairy tale, the Cocktail Tree is real. This delightful tree produces an array of citrus offerings including oranges, limes, tangerines, grapefruits, and lemons. Often grown as a container tree, the Cocktail Tree should be moved indoors when freezing weather threatens or protected well when planted as part of the landscape. Too much water can damage this unique tree, so be sure to plant in well-draining soil and apply a citrus blend fertilizer occasionally.
