My zip code is 81326 and I live at 7500 feet elevation, but I want a dwarf citrus for my greenhouse dome which gets no colder than 45 degrees. While incompatible if I kept it outside, might this dwarf tangerine work in my dome?

BEST ANSWER: Growing in the dome sounds like a great idea. You can grow citrus trees, like lemons, key limes, oranges and tangerines in containers and move indoors for protection before cold temperatures arrive.

Tangerine Citrus
I am very pleased with this plant. It has grown so much since it was sent to me. It is very hardy & makes a great container tree. I would not hesitate to get another citrus tree from your company. I can hardly wait until it bears fruit. I couldn't be happier that I have finally found a company that sells exactly what they advertise. I can say for sure that I will be ordering again! Thanks so much.
