Details

Highly unusual, the grapefruit tree, or Citrus x paradisi, must be grown as a house plant or conservatory plant here in the UK because it is not cold-hardy. Young trees will not generally produce fruit until they reach at least three years of age. This plant is already fruiting and these fruits are full-sized. Harvesting generally takes place in autumn and the fruits are ready for picking once they turn yellow or gold in colour. The longer the fruit remains on the tree, the larger and sweeter it becomes. If left too long the fruit tends to become lumpy and should be discarded.

  • Likes a light and sunny position.
  • Shield from direct sunlight during the hottest times of the year.
  • Use free-draining compost.
  • Water thoroughly during the growing season up to once per week but allow the compost to dry out between waterings.
  • During the growing season this plant can have a light fertiliser added to the water every six weeks, on average.
  • Does not respond well to pruning.Just remove weak branches when necessary.
  • Growing in a 21cm pot.
