Citrus medica

NEW! A unique and unusual shaped citrus that is very easy to grow in UK conditions, giving fruits of great size with what appear to be multiple fingers.  The very thick pithy centres of the fruits have a strong citrus flavour which are delicious served in drinks or can be cut to make a wonderful marmalade.


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Plant size: 5.5 litre pot / 60-90cm (2-3ft) from base of pot.


Available for delivery: all year.


 

Citrus are a great addition to any garden and can be grown for many years in pots or planted in the soil in those parts of the country with a reasonably mild climate. The fruits ripen from the late Autumn until mid-spring, but the tree is active at all times of the year with flowers, fruitlets and mature fruits on the tree all at the same time. Citrus will thrive in temperatures above 5ºC and cope with occasional drops below freezing for short periods. During the winter months if the temperature drops below freezing, trees in pots should be moved to a glasshouse, garage or shed and trees planted in the open ground should be wrapped with fleece whilst temperatures stay low. Citrus are not house plants and will not succeed in the environment of central heating.

 

Our citrus trees are grafted on to Poncirus trifoliata rootstock and are 3-4 years old. They are supplied in 5.5 litre pots and are 60-90cm (2-3ft) tall on despatch (measured from the base of the pot). Trees are usually available all year except from April to late May when the new growth is coming through.
