While walking through the HD garden center (my favorite place to be) this morning I stumbled upon a Citrus tree that totally blew my mind. I've never seen such a thing and I want one!
The 'snowbird' is for those who winter in Florida and when they go home to the north they can just toss it or leave on the balcony of their home for the summer and have all the organic fruit they need when they return. Our rainy season will take care of watering.
It's called a "Citrus Cocktail" and has been grafted with several kinds of citrus all growing on the same plant. Now I do have one with lemons and limes but this one has
Ruby Red Grapefruit
Notice the leaves on each branch are quite different.
Amazing!When I first saw this plant I wanted it until I saw the price tag.
I could imagine it standing proud on my front porch. How beautiful it would be, and the smell!
This is one form of citrus tree I've never seen but you all must admit it's perfect for a small family and in a small space.
No waist of fruit with a large tree.
I'm still think of going to get one and potting it in a large terracotta pot.. but I'm still on my 'no spending February'
Someone stop me before it's too late!
