Growing Dawrf Citrus in Containers

Q: I am interested in growing a dwarf citrus in a container. Do you have any suggestions? I really would like an orange.

A: Meyer lemon is the most popular citrus plant grown in containers but I don’t know anyone personally who has grown an orange in a pot. However, there are certain mandarin, satsuma, citrangequat and orangequat cultivars that might be suitable for a container. I’ve collected details on cold-hardy citrus plants at xrl.us/coldcitrus.
