Living in Southwest Florida provides the unique opportunity to harvest and enjoy homegrown citrus fruit. To find citrus and fruit trees for sale in the local area, stop in at Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape for a quick tour of our superior-quality company grown offerings.
Before making your purchase of a citrus tree from Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape, plan to incorporate it in your landscaping design plan. You don’t want to buy a tree only to find you have no workable place to plant it. Your chosen site should get ample sun, have soil that drains well, and be shielded from the north whenever possible.
Each tree should have a 15-foot circumference around it that’s free of buildings and other trees. This space will allow for growth of both the roots and canopy. We provide landscaping services, so give us a call to schedule an appointment for one of our professionals to view your property and provide advice about placement and tree selection. We’ll also provide planting services should your ultimate choice of tree require it.
When you think of fruit related to Florida, you likely envision an orange tree bearing a bountiful orange harvest. The juice will definitely be worth the squeeze when you grow your own tree, making sure that it receives sufficient sun, water, and nutrients. Make sure that you reap the benefits of your Florida location by incorporating an Orange Tree into your property’s landscape.
A Tangelo Tree will grow to around the same height as an Orange Tree and requires similar growing conditions. Important to note is the fact that these trees are not self-pollinators; you’ll need to plant another citrus tree within 60 feet of your Tangelo to ensure pollination occurs. The Tangelo is a hybrid of a tangerine and a grapefruit and produces a sweet, juicy fruit.
Perfect for the Southwest Florida climate, the Lemon Tree you choose to bring into your landscape will bring with it a fragrant beauty all its own. You may choose to move this tree in and out of the house via wheeled container planters, or you can make it a part of the landscape by installing it in the ground. If you do decide to plant this tree, make sure you pay attention to the weather during winter. The occasional freeze can harm the tree, and you must take precautions against frost exposure.
A Cocktail Tree is a grafted creation that bears several types of citrus fruit on one tree. This tree – like the ones stocked here at Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape – will bear tangerines, lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruit. It is sensitive to over-watering and freezing temperatures. You can use this tree as a conversation starter on your patio or as a functional and striking part of your garden.
Making a purchase of citrus fruit trees for sale should be mandatory when you own property in Florida! Just as the climate calls for a palm tree in every yard, it would be a shame to forego the perfect environment for growing citrus fruit.
