Design Ideas: All citrus trees are the perfect combination of ornamental and edible plant values, but dwarf citrus are even more versatile because they fit in limited spaces. Make this a single accent tree in gardens were fragrance can be appreciated close up. Add to foundation planting outside a window. If low foliage is left in place these double as a background foliage plant for more colorful shrubs and tropcials. Integrate into existing beds and borders. Grow orchard style in a grid or a allee for optimal care and fruit production. Outstanding small tree for large terra cotta pots in the Italian style that may be moved for winter protection in marginal areas.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.

History

The origin of grapefruit is not well documented. Its name was inspired by the heavy crops of fruit on the earlest plants resembling grape clusters. Also known as shaddock. Grapefruit can have a number of interactions with modern drugs.
