The Tangelo Tree
A grapefruit/tangerine combination, the tangelo tree requires soil that drains appropriately and has sufficient protection from the north. This tree will grow well throughout USDA Planting Zone 9 and can tolerate many different conditions. The fruit that this tree produces is easy to peel, small, sweet, and juicy. You’ll solve your afterschool snack situation with a tree at the backdoor.
The Orange Tree
The trees provided here at Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape are inspected for pests and disease potential. Ample sun exposure, proper drainage, and 15 feet of clearance from buildings, other trees, tanks, or lines are appropriate and necessary. The roots and canopy will continue to grow and should be clear from growing into any obstruction below, at, or above ground level. The last thing you want is to have to cut down a tree you have invested time and money into growing when it begins to grow too large for its location.
The Lemon Tree
Lemon trees are a bit more vulnerable than other citrus options. You should plant your trees southward and provide protection from frosts when they occur. Ample water, protection from mulch, and plenty of sun should ensure that your lemon tree grows and begins bearing fruit within the first five years after planting. The fragrant tree will make summer afternoons blissful when it allows you to prepare homemade lemonade.
The Citrus Cocktail Tree
It might sound impossible, but the citrus cocktail tree produces several different kinds of fruit including limes, oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and tangerines. Cocktail trees are generally used as patio accents, and wheeled containers are great options for when the weather takes a turn. Being able to conveniently move your trees indoors can promote the long life of our tree. As with other citrus tree choices, this option requires soil that drains and citrus fertilizer as appropriate.
