We offer only the top choice of easy to grow Grafted Citrus varieties for your home patio/container garden.

This way you can grow it outdoors for the summer, and if need be if you live in a cold climate, move it indoors for the winter. Grafted citrus trees make wonderful container plants, never needing larger than a 5 gallon pot at maturity at 3 years. These trees will begin flowering in the Spring, thus starting their fruiting cycle for you.
Your citrus tree will be shipped in an 8 inch growth tube (not bare rooted - your roots will be in potting medium), awaiting you to re pot it into a one gallon pot upon arrival in your home (see second picture). Shipping in the growth tube greatly reduces your shipping cost, and is far less traumatic for the tree. TREE SIZE: 10 to 11 inches tall
