Cold Hardy and Container Citrus

Living in Zones 8B and 8 certainly has its blessings, and one of these is being able to not only grow temperate fruits like apples and peaches, but also having the pleasure of growing citrus. At one time, the upper Gulf Coast was a major citrus producing region, with a peak of 12,000 acres in the 1940s. There are still pockets of commercially grown citrus in Lousiana. Texas, Louisiana and Florida have active breeding programs that are producing some excellent cold hardy varieties.

Flying Dragon.  Great rootstock, YUCKY orange! Most of the success in growing citrus in the colder regions lies in the selection of these cold hardy varieties, but it is also important to have trees grafted on the correct rootstock. The Trifoliate Orange is used in the colder regions, as it is the only deciduous rootstock. This keeps the tree in deep dormancy in the winter, thereby preventing tender growth during winter warm spells. We currently use three Trifoliate rootstocks: Flying Dragon, a dwarfing rootstock, Large Flower Trifoliate, a semi-dwarfing rootstook, and Swingle, which is vigorous. Please note that we can only ship citrus within the state of Florida. All citrus are self-pollinating unless otherwise noted.



The Facts on Cold Hardy Citrus

Citrus Blossoms

Most people lose their citrus trees in the first or second year of the tree's life. It pays to protect these small trees during 25 degrees F or lower freezes. Here are some things to remember:

  • Cover completely with a two-layer combination of a blanket and then plastic. Uncover the next day as it warms up.
  • Once established, citrus trees can tolerate lower temperatures and recover more quickly from freezes.
  • Keep your tree dormant. Never fertilize after July as this promotes late, tender growth that is suseptible to freeze damage.
  • Choose a microclimate. Find an area that's sheltered from northern winds for more tender citrus varieties.




    Just the Facts

    Not sure what to do with cold-hardy citrus or how to grow them right? DON'T PANIC! Push the panic button and we will give you "Just the Facts" you need to successfully grow them.



    We Ain't Afraid of No Cold!

    Think your area is just too cold to grow citrus? Then try these super cold hardy selections:

  • Calamondin 16 degrees F
  • Chinotto Orange 16 degrees F
  • Changsha Tangerine 8 degrees F
  • Meiwa Kumquat 16 degrees F
  • Nagami Kumquat 16 degrees F
  • Nippon Orangequat 15 degrees F
  • Ichang Lemon 10 degrees F
  • Tiwanica Lemon 10 degrees F
  • Rangpur Lime 15 degrees F
  • Red Lime 10 degrees F
  • Yuzu Lemon 12 degrees F

  • Container Citrus

    For areas where winter temperatures drop too low for growing citrus outside, try growing your citrus in containers. Some of the more unique varieties like blood oranges, keylimes and citron can only be grown in containers north of the tropics. It's the sure way to enjoy this fruit as well as giving you the ultimate access to the wide world of citrus varieties.

    Citrus trees are the perfect container tree. Their fibrous root system adapts well to a lifetime in a pot and their evergreen foliage and colorful fruits are the perfect accent to a patio or atrium setting.

    Every few years you should trim the outside of the rootball about 1-2 inches, add fresh potting soil, and reset in your container. For complete directions on cultivation, push the Container Citrus Panic Button!!

    Year `Round Color

    There is something special about citrus. Beautiful evergreen plants with lush, bright green foliage and heavenly fragrant blooms. Tuck them around your windows so that you can enjoy their sweet fragrance in the house.

    The kumquats, lemons, limequats and Chinotto Orange, with their dense growth, can be easily sheared into any shape or form. Use them for hedges or foundation plants around the house or to line pathways. Or espalier them against a sunny wall.

    The oranges and grapefruit will grow larger, so are best trained into small round trees, and make excellent specimens.

    Citrus trees prefer an acid soil amendment like peat moss, and full sun. 3 gallon trees. Please call us for availability of larger sizes-- sometimes we have a few bigger trees that can be shipped.

    Orlando Tangelo Sorry, but due to agricultural restrictions, we cannot ship citrus out of Florida.
