Consider the Fruit Tree Shopping Experience
Growing fruit trees doesn’t have to be hard, but you do need to provide a few basic essentials. Plenty of sun exposure, appropriately draining soil, and sufficient watering are all key components of citrus tree growth. When preparing to plant, identify spaces that face the southern direction and have at least a 15 foot area of clearance at, above, and below ground.
Plan Before You Shop
When deciding the right number and variety of citrus trees to purchase, you’ll need to plan before purchasing. The right design will lay out the trees on each property to highlight your shopping needs.
Tangelo – A hybrid of tangerine and grapefruit, the tangelo tree bears juicy and delicious fruit that’s easy to peel and kid friendly. The trees thrive in subtropical climates like ours. Watering will be key to this tree’s growth, so you should make sure to water weekly for the first few months after planting and during the growing season each year. Tangelo trees shouldn’t have any competing grass or other plants surrounding them. These trees are appropriate for planting in USDA Zones 8-11 and require plenty of sun exposure. Since they don’t need a huge area to grow, you can grow these in ground or as container plants.
Orange – When you think of orange juice, you likely think Florida. Our climate is just right for growing this citrus tree, and it takes just a few years of waiting for trees to bear fruit. For this planting, you will need to prioritize drainage but not mulch.
Lemon – Lemon trees can be grown as house, patio, and in-ground plants. The fragrance is remarkable and the aesthetic striking. Growing requirements for lemon trees include soil that drains well, full sun exposure, and regular fertilizer application.
Cocktail – If you’re wondering what a cocktail tree might be, you’re not alone. This tree doesn’t exist naturally; it’s a grafted creation made by arborists who combine several fruit trees into one. Citrus cocktail trees, like the ones that we sell, bear lemons, grapefruits, oranges, limes, and tangerines. With this tree, you can add variety to your citrus pickings and have a unique landscape feature with one tree option.
