Winters are long in New England.

My Dad has a green thumb and likes to cook. This Citrus Tree Collection seems to cover both of those hobbies. Additionally, given we live in zone 8, these are ideal for being able to bring indoors during winter.

I live in the midwest but have a greenhouse attached to my home. I am eager to try growing tropical citrus as something wild and wonderful!

I was going to buy just the lemon and lime trees, but the collection was just a few dollars more, so I decided to experiment with three citrus trees in Chicago.

Are these mature, blooming trees?
Terri Biggers B on Mar 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They are two years old and will produce in 1-2 years, with blooms the first year. You should pick those blooms off (we know, it's hard to do) and let the energy of the plant go back into developing the root system.

I know that citrus trees need to be moved inside for the winter in my area. My question is, if I build a green house on my deck can they live outside in the winter still, but in a green house? I was considering a temporary green house for winters. I live in Ft. Worth.
Jennifer on Mar 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If the greenhouse is heated or your temperatures do not drop below the 50s at night, it will be OK in a greenhouse.

I live in Charlotte -8A. I have had Dwarf Meyer Lemon trees and did get fruit by growing outdoors in Spring/Summer/Fall and growing in a sunny window indoors during the Winter. Can I grow tangerine and lime the same way and expect fruit?
Liz K on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, as long as you get them outside during the summer, you should expect similar results as long as the trees get the proper nutrients, sunlight and water/rainfall.

What six and type of container do you recommend for my dwarf lemon, lime, and tangerine trees?
Joseph R on Jun 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Mine have done well in a container just a couple sizes up from their root system. You don't want to constrict growth, but they actually don't thrive as well in a very large pot. It seems like the thing to do is to repot as they grow. Just make darn sure the pots drain very well. I drill half inch holes in the bottom sides of mine. Citrus plants mustn't sit in water. They also prefer a sandy soil.
Are these trees with more than one fruit in one tree?
Trenda G on Apr 2, 2019

Barbara K on Aug 29, 2018

I have a pool room that is warm and humid year round. Would these trees grow there?
Cathy M on Jul 22, 2019

Can they be shipped to california ?
Willa C on Jul 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately this happens to be a product that has state or county agricultural regulations, which prohibit shipment. Sometimes there are local/regional quarantines put in place to halt the spread of certain plant diseases, which does not happen often. While these regulations may change in the near future, we apologize that we cannot ship this item to you at the present time.
How well do these trees survive and produce in the Phoenix AZ area?
unobear on Jul 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These trees are suited for your growing zone. Because the climate is so arid, be sure to keep them evenly watered.
for container growing what is the best size pot to use?
Serena W on Jun 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It's best for citrus tree to "pot up" rather than putting a small tree in a very large container. We recommend you start with a 10" pot and when the roots reach the edge, pot up another 4" to a 14" pot, and so on, until you get to a 20-24" pot. Then root-prune and repot every three years.
Can i grow these citrus as house plant and expect fruits from them?
Ngoc Q on May 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can, if you have a window that is sunny enough to give the tree enough light to produce. Many people do this very successfully. The tree must also be fed the right "diet", which is different than most fruit trees. Customers have had great success with this:

What if lime turns yellow?
Doris H on Dec 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you mean that the lime is turning yellow after it's turned green, it's either overripe or the tree is getting too much water (if the leaves are also yellowing). That kind of yellowing could also mean the tree is nitrogen-deficient.
Can I have a Meyer???s lemon tree in 7b hardiness zone indoors year round?
Kerin B on Aug 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If it's indoors all year, it doesn't matter which zone you're in. Lemon trees do like warmer temps than room temperature for at least part of the year, so it's best to move it outdoors for the summer. You'll get much more fruit if you do.

Two out of three
I received my Meyers Lemon and Key Lime trees in decent shape, but received my Tangerine tree shocked with leaves already yellowing. I did my best to revive the little tangerine tree, but it didn't make it. It came to my house at about 5", while my Meyers and Key Lime trees were twice the size. The Meyers and Key Lime trees were considerably larger with more developed roots than the tangerine tree, so they were easy to transplant, and both have new growth and seem healthy. Again, though, my tangerine tree didn't make it. It came to my door dying.

Citrus tree collection
All three trees are doing well despite me having to bring them inside the house during the winter! The lemon is doing the best, had some blooms on it but the dogs were wagging their tails too hard and knocked them off, lol. The tangerine has the most growth on it and the lime is still pretty small, limes are more finicky though.
