On average, fruit bearing begins when the trees are between 3 and 6 years old; however, exact timing will depend on the type of citrus (lemons, oranges, grapefruit, etc.), the cultivar, your climate, the health of the plant and its care, and other factors.
Flowering is not seasonal, but occurs during warm weather and regular rainfall. Flowers and fruits may coincide.

Planting and care
- A few weeks after planting, and for the first few years (before bearing age), feed the tree a balanced (such as 6-6-6) fertilizer
For newly bearing trees, provide nutrients to continue branch and leaf growth but also to replace nutrients lost by fruit forming
- A citrus blend is ideal
Check manufacturer’s directions, or ask a garden nursery, as to how often and how much to apply during each year of a tree’s growth
- Citrus trees should be planted in a sunny and wind-protected area
In the citrus belt, trees can be planted at any time, however, spring is the best time for container grown plants
Standard-size trees should be spaced 12 to 25 feet apart and dwarf trees should be set 6 to 10 feet apart
- The exact distance depends on the variety
- The bigger the fruit, the farther the distance
|Sunlight ||Full Sun to Partial Shade |
