We're All About Citrus Trees & Fruit
Grown in our Texas nurseries, our trees were supposed to be for our use only to grow fruit.
But people asked, we listened, and so we made our trees available for everyone.
Now it's our job to show you every step in growing lemons and limes, even in an apartment!
We make Citrus Simplified, to spread the joy of citrus.
But I have a brown thumb!
We expect you to have zero gardening experience! We guarantee a healthy tree, and if your tree dies within 30 days of delivery, we will send you a replacement citrus tree!
What if I live in a cold area?
Citrus has been grown using container gardening and indoor gardening at the Palace of Versaille in France for 400 years! Keep your tree in a pot and bring it indoors for the winter, and outdoors when temperatures are warm. We will show you how to use grow lights so that you could grow citrus in a closet!
I don't have space for a large tree.
This is the essence of container gardening and indoor gardening. Keep your tree in a 1-gallon to 5-gallon size pot, and prune to the desired height. We will show you how to prune your tree for an aesthetic and functional height and shape that is fine indoors or on a patio.
I have no idea where to start....
...that's 100% our job!
Care guides, email reminders, video instructions available immediately after purchase, or get a head start by signing up for our newsletter!
We routinely get offers for ~$200 for our larger two-year-old trees in planters! And with micro-budding you will get fruit in your tree's second full year of growth, instead of waiting 3-4 years with traditionally grafted citrus trees!
Micro-budding: Our Innovation, Our Secret
An all-natural grafting technique, invented by our founder Dr. Mani Skaria. Our citrus trees grow faster and bear fruit earlier, with no special care and non-GMO.
Grow Like Us
Every single baby lemon tree and lime tree we send you is the exact size tree we plant directly into the soil in our groves.
Our Nurseries & Our Experts
Our facilities are certified and inspected by USDA and the Texas Dept of Agriculture. Our founder and CEO is a Ph.D. citrus pathologist who invented micro-budding and our operations manager is a Ph.D. entomologist. This means everything we do at our nurseries is to ensure a steady supply of clean, disease-free Kaffir Lime trees, Rio Red Grapefruit trees, Australian Finger Lime trees, and Calamondin trees.
Our Lone Star Limes
We are the largest and only domestic producer of Persian Limes. They are the juiciest and best-tasting limes you have ever tried, guaranteed. The limes available to the consumer today are all imported from Mexico, and they are low in juice.
Deep in South Texas, our groves are cared for with a personal touch. We are a vertically integrated company. From harvesting our own rootstock, to grafting and growing our own Navel and Valencia orange trees in our nursery, to harvesting and packing the limes and lemons ourselves, it is all done on our facilities. Our own nurseries, our own innovation, our own groves, and our own packing house. This way we can ensure the absolute pristine product to deliver to your home.
Harvesting Rootstock Seeds
Rootstock should be tough, having disease and drought resistance while being cold and heat tolerant.
Rootstock provides the foundation of micro-budding. We harvest our own Brazilian Sour Orange or Trifoliate Orange seeds to grow rootstock.
