Technical Specs for Your Tree:

  • This tree is grafted, using proprietary micro-budding technology. It is not grown from cuttings or from a seed
  • Rootstock: Brazilian Sour Orange or Citrange-22
  • non-GMO, not organically raised
  • Height: 24-inches tall or greater (not including root system)
  • Stem Diameter: 7mm or greater

  • Pot size: 2.5 quarts plastic pot (which is referred to as 1-gallon in standard nursery nomenclature)
  • Start of fruit production: after one year of consistent growth

  • Container: Your tree can stay in the pot it comes in for one year. Re-potting can be done at any time, we suggest 5-gallon to 15-gallon pot sizes with drainage holes
  • Watering: A newly shipped tree needs its soil drenched daily for 4 weeks. Overwatering is not a concern if the container has drainage holes and the tree is outdoors.
  • Indoor growing: watering needs to be adjusted, more info in our care guide.
  • Climate Control: Needs to be protected from strong winds or temperatures under 40 degrees F.
  • Light: We recommend the tree be kept outdoors for full sunlight. If is kept indoors, we recommend a full-spectrum grow light, window light will not suffice as this is a tropical tree. If the tree is kept indoors without a full spectrum grow light, we cannot say with confidence that the tree will survive or thrive.
  • Nutrition: To thrive, your tree needs proper fertilizer three times yearly.
  • Your tree can spend its life in a pot. We do NOT recommend planting the tree in the ground if there are any freezing temperatures unless you live in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 9a, 9b or 10a. Even then your tree must be protected from temperatures below freezing.
