Dwarf Citrus

Dwarf Citrus have fragrant flowers and full-sized fruit. Dwarf trees reach about 10 ft tall, but can be potted to keep them manageable for small spaces like patios and balconies. Citrus need full sun. In order to produce good quality fruit, they need 4 to 6 hours of sun a day for maximum sweetness. Citrus are remarkably drought tolerant trees, so keep in mind the common problem with growing citrus is caused by overwatering. These are the top selling citrus at Payless Nursery.
