Very Happy with Your Service!

“The last order arrived in perfect condition and the trees have doubled in size over the past three weeks.  The Improved Meyer lemon and Variegated Pink lemon are both now blooming.  It is not often you hear about the good things in this day and time; excellent customer service is a rarity.  I will definitely be a repeat customer not only because of the superior product, but for the "Grade A" customer service!”

Other Interesting Varieties

Each member of this group of varieties does not fall easily into one of the common categories of citrus species. They all have unique characteristics which make them some of our favorites.

minneola_tangeloMinneola Tangelo

Deep reddish-orange colored fruit in winter. Leave fruit on tree for rich tangerine-like flavor in late spring through summer.

australian_finter_limeAustralian Finger Lime (Microcitrus australasica)

This somewhat thorny, tiny leafed relative of citrus produces finger-like fruit with tart, round, juicy, light colored vesicles. Sometimes called "citrus caviar", fruit flavor is reminiscent of Mexican lime. Primary fruiting season in California is November - December. The plant has white and pink flowers May-July. 

yuzuYuzu

Also known as Japanese Citron. In the fall, this thorny tree produces lumpy, medium-sized, yellow to orange fruits that are uniquely fragrant and highly prized as flavoring agents in Asian cuisine, and for marmalade. Trees are among the cold-hardiest of all citrus. 

calamondin_varietyCalamondin (Kalamansi; Philippine lime)best_variety_for_indoor_growing_burst

Prolific fruit production. Zesty acid juice. Handsome compact habit. Outstanding in containers.

variegated_calamondinVariegated Calamondinbest_variety_for_indoor_growing_burst

Fragrant bloom is followed by tart, petite, orange fruit like its Calamondin cousin. Immature fruit is strikingly green and yellow striped. Variegated foliage has a compact habit, suitable for indoors or patio containers.

Poncirus trifoliata (Flying Dragon)

This very cold hardy variety, a Citrus relative, is a thorny, well-branched, deciduous shrub or small tree which typically grows 8-15' (less frequently to 20') tall. Its thorny nature makes it a good candidate for a security hedge or barrier. Three-lobed leaves emerge yellowish-green in spring, turn glossy dark green in summer and fade to yellow in autumn. Fragrant, white flowers appear singly in spring. Flowers develop into 1-2" diameter fruits which ripen to an attractive yellow in the fall. Fruits are very acidic and seedy. They can be used to make marmalade, but there are many more flavorful citrus alternatives. Fruit is usually left on the tree where they persist well into winter and provide ornamental interest with the leaf-less curvy branches and downturned sharp spines. Flying Dragon is sometimes used as a rootstock, because of its dwarfing capabilities, but has fallen out of favor because of the tendency for the Flying Dragon to overgrow and constrict the scion or fruiting wood.

centennial_vaiegated_kumquatCentennial Variegated Kumquat

This variegated sport of a Nagami Kumquat is an attractive tree with textured leaves and an upright growth habit. A rapid grower, by kumquat standards, this tree features variegated pale yellow and cream colored leaves that are complemented by yellow and green striped fruit, and fragrant blossoms in spring. As the fruit ripen, they become quite large and turn orange at maturity. Generally, fruit ripening occurs in late winter but fruit can hold well on the tree through the summer months. Fruit of this variety are not only large, but also very tasty.

 

Citrons

One of the oldest and least common species of citrus available today, citrons are a unique selection for serious citrus enthusiasts.

It is extraordinary as an evergreen ornamental with multiple "hands" hanging from the branches. No frost tolerance.
