Consider Your Purpose
Whether you plan to buy citrus trees as a homeowner, business owner, highway manager, community director, or other role, Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape can help with wholesale or retail options. We can also walk you through the different types of trees that we offer, helping you identify where, how, and what you should plant for the best outcomes. For instance, if you plan to plant for your family’s enjoyment, make sure to sample a few varieties before settling on the right citrus tree.
Consider the Future
When you buy a fruit tree, pay attention to how large that tree is likely to grow. Most citrus trees require a 15-foot clearance. Below, at, and above ground level should be free from any obstructions. The foundation of nearby buildings, septic fields, power lines, and other obstructions could be destroyed by the future growth of your citrus roots or canopy.
Consider Sun Exposure
Plots of land have sun patterns. Sun exposure is an essential demand for any plant or tree, and different types of citrus will require different levels. Most citrus trees prefer full amounts of sun exposure, so finding the spots on your property with less shade is smart.
Consider the Amount of Available Space
The quantity of citrus trees that you can purchase and plant will depend on the amount of available space. Renters with small patios might be limited to a container planted cocktail or lemon tree while a business owner with ample land could plant far more. If you do determine that an orchard is appropriate, make sure to space your trees 15 feet apart and plant in rows that run from north to south. This spacing plan allows your trees to spread without obstruction or competition for nutrients or sunlight.
Consider the Essential Steps for Planting and Care
The citrus tree type that you choose to plant should have maintenance requirements that fit within your lifestyle and budget. For most citrus trees, water will be the primary need in the beginning, followed by seasonal fertilizer applications, occasional pruning, and careful harvesting when the time comes.
