Understanding the Type of Citrus Tree Is Also Important
As you plan your purchase and planting, you could choose the type of citrus tree based upon your favorite fruit, or based on the specific spot in your landscape that needs adornment. Either way, knowing the differences among the various citrus trees available will be a key factor in your purchase. Consider the following trees we offer here at Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape.
The tangelo tree is a cross between a tangerine and grapefruit. To grow an abundant crop of this delicious fruit, experts suggest planting a mandarin orange tree nearby to facilitate pollination. The ideal placement for this tree will be facing southward with some protection from northern winds. It will need plenty of water, especially in the first few years, and as the tree matures, its drought survivability will also grow stronger.
If your goal is to bring a happy tone to your Florida landscape, an orange tree is a great way to do it! The orange tree can grow over time to heights of 25’ and produces fragrant white flowers in the spring while providing an evergreen greenery to the landscape – not to mention the juicy and yummy fruit. Make sure to space your trees 10-25’ apart to leave plenty of room for canopy and root expansion. For a hardy fruit tree that’s as “Florida-esque” as sunshine, choose an orange tree from Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape.
Another option available here is the lemon tree. The refreshing scent and bountiful fruit will make this tree a star in your landscape. Fruit will take 3-5 years of tree growth to appear, but you can maximize fruit production with your growing choices. Ensure ample sun and water, appropriate fertilizer application, and in no time, you’ll be making homestyle lemonade from your very own lemons!
Growing lemons, grapefruits, oranges, limes and tangerines all on the same tree might sound like a science fiction fantasy, but it’s not! A cocktail tree from Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape provides an amalgamation of various fruit, and the trees are perfect for container growing on your patio! Supply appropriate water, fertilizer, and protection from freezes. This fairy tale tree will make your Florida living complete.
