Pollination/Pollinating by Hand

Q: What is required for citrus pollination?
A: Most citrus are self-pollinating.
 
Q: Do citrus trees grown indoors need to be pollinated by hand?
A: Generally they do not. Some people like to use a Q-Tip or soft brush to increase pollination, but it is not necessary.
 
Q: If I grow two different citrus trees next to each other, will the fruit be cross-pollinated?
A: Fruit will stay true to variety. Seeds may be cross-pollinated, so they are not a good source for starting new trees.
 
Q: Do citrus trees need pollinators of different varieties to produce fruit?
A: No, they do not. Most varieties are self-pollinating.
