The state fruit of Texas, with aromatic blossoms and delicious, sweet and sour pink flesh! Grows well in containers for patios. Great tree to use for container gardening, indoor gardening and urban gardening.

Technical Specs for Your Tree:

This tree is grafted, using proprietary micro-budding technology. It is not grown from cuttings or from a seed

Rootstock: Brazilian Sour Orange or Citrange-22

non-GMO, not organically raised

Height: 12-inches tall or greater (not including root system)

Stem Diameter: 4mm or greater

Age: ~6 months in age or older

Pot size: 2.5 quarts plastic pot (which is referred to as 1-gallon in standard nursery nomenclature)

Start of fruit production: after one year of consistent growth

Consistent fruit harvests: after two years of consistent growth

Container: Your tree can stay in the pot it comes in for one year. Re-potting can be done at any time, we suggest 5-gallon to 15-gallon pot sizes with drainage holes

Watering: A newly shipped tree needs its soil drenched daily for 4 weeks. Overwatering is not a concern if the container has drainage holes and the tree is outdoors.

Indoor growing: watering needs to be adjusted, more info in our care guide.

Climate Control: Needs to be protected from strong winds or temperatures under 40 degrees F.

Light: We recommend the tree be kept outdoors for full sunlight. If is kept indoors, we recommend a full-spectrum grow light, window light will not suffice as this is a tropical tree. If the tree is kept indoors without a full spectrum grow light, we cannot say with confidence that the tree will survive or thrive.

Nutrition: To thrive, your tree needs proper fertilizer three times yearly.

Your tree can spend its life in a pot. We do NOT recommend planting the tree in the ground if there are any freezing temperatures unless you live in USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 9a, 9b or 10a. Even then your tree must be protected from temperatures below freezing.

Nursery: TDA certified nursery in Hargill, Texas. We do not purchase trees from any other nurseries to re-sell.

Healthy Plant - How can I verify type and grafting?

I want to make sure what I received is actually Rio Red Grapefruit. The "Picture This" app is identifying it as Kaffir Lime or something other than Grapefruit. I'm planting this outside for fruit here in Mission, TX. How can I verify it is Rio Red Grapefruit? The tags say that, but how can I verify or ID it like by leaf or stem criteria? I also wanted to plant it with the graft above ground but I couldn't see the grafting so I'm concerned. Can you help?

As Expected

I've never grown grapefruit, and i'm hoping I'll be successful with this one here in 8a. Could use a little pruning, but satisfied thus far!

Sun without the heat.

Love this grow light. It brings the sunshine inside without putting out heat, even the bulb stays cool.

Awesome buy!

I really appreciate the quality of packaging my trees came in. I have ordered live plants before and they could learn somethings from your company. Simply put the trees were beautiful, green and not one leaf fell off. If the trees dont make it successfully but I know they will...lol..it will be all on me because you guys did your part. Thanks for my beautiful citrus trees. I would definitely recommend you guys to anyone in need of citrus trees!

My new citrus plant

Compared to the rest of my citrus: grapefruit and Meyer Lemon, this new additon looks a bit feeble. I had lost a few leaves in transit but seems to be picking up. I have to say that the overall reaction to the process would be five stars as everything was efficient and well explained.
