Entry and Premium Size Citrus Trees

Our Citrus selections come in two sizes reflecting the approximate age of the tree. Each variety of Citrus grows at different rates and sizes will vary. Typically, a Premium tree will be the closest to fruit baring age while the Entry size will need a season or two of growth to become productive.


Entry Size Trees are from 12-18 months old and are 12" - 18" tall. Entry Size trees are best re-potted into a 10" to 12" container within a month of delivery.

In climates where citrus is regularly grown outside, trees may be planted directly into the ground.


Premium Size Trees are from 24 to 36 months old and the closest to baring fruit. The plants are a more developed than the Entry size with more branching and a fuller look.

 Premium Size Trees are shipped in 10" x 9.5", #3 nursery containers that can be planted into a 12" - 14" container upon arrival. In climates where citrus is regularly grown outside, trees may be planted directly into the ground.
