The dense, rounded crown of dark green, evergreen foliage and the pure white, extremely fragrant blossoms make citrus a popular garden choice for frost-free locations. Ranging from 12 to 30 feet in height and 8 to 25 feet in width, depending upon species and cultivar, citrus can be used for shade, to screen unwanted views, or smaller varieties can be used in containers. The juicy, fragrant fruits vary from yellow, orange, or red, and are most noticeable in winter.

Use and Management

The green, thorny branches will rarely need pruning after a strong branch structure is developed. Prune so there is no bark embedded or pinched together in the branch crotches. This condition could cause the branch to break from the trunk when fruit loads it down. Prune out enough of the foliage on lateral branches so they remain less than half the diameter of the trunk.

Citrus should be grown in full sun on well-drained, slightly acid soil, and watered faithfully. Do not mulch the soil beneath citrus. It is very heat-tolerant and can be effectively used in a tough urban site such as a parking lot if dropping fruits will not pose a problem.

Many species of citrus are available. Citrus limon gives us lemons; Citrus reticulata, tangerines or Mandarin oranges; Citrus sinensis, sweet orange; Citrus aurantifolia, key limes; and Citrus paradisi, grapefruit.

Propagation is by grafting or layering.
