WHICH CITRUS CAN BE GROWED IN HOME?
In recent years, "citrusomania" has completely swallowed me, I managed to collect a collection of 50 types and varieties of citrus. The windowsill was not enough for me, and for my favorites I had to build an in-depth greenhouse. The outgoing year in my greenhouse was fruitful
Ripened for 9 months
I managed to grow in a greenhouse grapefruit. The name of the variety, unfortunately, can not say. Despite his young age - he was only two years old - he bore two huge fruits, one weighing 330 g, the other 432 g, ripened for about 9 months. Fruits with a beautiful pink barrel. The pulp is rich red, juicy, very tasty, but the film is bitter, like all grapefruits, so it needs to be cleaned. Very worthy copy. The tree itself is compact, with thorns.
Broom drove crazy
I also made friends with the pomelo, it became one of my favorite plants. I tried the fruits this year. Originally from Thailand, I also, unfortunately, do not know the varieties.
Squat tree with small spines. It bloomed very abundantly, but formed only three ovaries, two of which later disappeared. One still remained and began to develop. The fetus has matured for approximately 7-8 months. Maybe he did not ripen to the end, but I could not wait to try my broomstick, and I cut it off. He weighed 640 g, which is not bad when grown in a pot. There were a lot of seeds. It tastes sweet and sour, juicy, no worse than a store.
The fruits of the third attempt
I did not immediately find the approach to the next citrus. it orange kami. Twice it bloomed with me, but the flowers flew around, and only the third time the tree tied two fruits. Grown small, rounded. The pulp is orange, juicy, crispy, with a berry flavor. I really liked it.
The most flexible
The most unpretentious in my collection was lemon limoncello, looks like a Meyer lemon, only less whimsical. Grows vigorously, branches almost without thorns.
The fruits are small, smooth, few seeds.
The skin is yellow-orange in color, the flesh is in tone with the peel. Lemons are very fragrant, with a coniferous note, juicy.
I have one more lemon, very unpretentious in leaving, will grow well in an apartment, this is the commune variety. Old Italian variety. It grows quickly, he has more spines on the shoots than Limoncello. The peel is bright yellow, smooth. The pulp is very juicy, delicate, aromatic.
I have several varieties of tangerines, but only Okitsu bears fruit so far. The tree is very moody, you need to find an approach to it. And so the plant is beautiful, the crown is sprawling, the average growth force. The fruits are flattened, bright orange in full ripeness. The pulp is juicy, sweet, practically without sourness.
Grow citrus fruits, delight yourself and your loved ones with delicious fruits. And most importantly, New Year's fragrance will fill your house year-round!
COLOR AND FRUIT SIMULTANEOUSLY
I also got an Australian citrus with an unusual name Faustremedin. The tree is low, with small leaves, which is inherent in all Australian citruses. It blooms almost all year round, on the tree you can see both flowers and fruits at the same time. The fruits are also unusual, elongated, similar to mini-cucumbers. The pulp is green, juicy, sour, in the form of small eggs. Very interesting view. The only negative is too many big spines.
CITRUS IS NOT SO SCARY ...
Each citrus is individual, and each needs to find its own approach. Someone less whimsical, someone more. But it is difficult only at first glance, and over time, understanding comes of what kind of care this or that plant awaits.
