Improved Meyer Lemon $50  SOLD OUT for this year
       Native to China, this hybrid of lemon and orange parentage, is sweeter and less acidic than true lemons and was introduced to the USA in 1908, by Frank Meyer, an agricultural explorer. The fruit has deep yellow skin; thinner than other lemons and edible, with a floral scent. 
        The Improved Meyer Lemon is disease resistant and is popular with chefs who incorporate its unique sweetness and fragrance into their recipes. Its hardiness and ornamental characteristics make the Meyer attractive to growers and gardeners. Although it is tolerant of cold, it still needs to be covered or brought indoors when temperature drop below 20 Fahrenheit. Container growing is successful with its ultimate height reaching 6 feet with our particular rootstock.

Kieffer [Kaffir]Lime  $50   SOLD OUT for this year   
Image result for kaffir lime (‘makrut’ thai lime) pictures
    A backyard tree for most households in Thailand, the Kieffer Lime leaf, zest and juice supply great flavor to enhance many Thai, Cambodian and Indonesian foods. Lime leaves are dark green and glossy, with a double-lobe.
       This lime has dark green fruit with a bumpy surface and the peel contains high concentration of aromatic oils, indispensable in many curry pastes. The zest imparts a piquant flavor to fried fish cakes, blending in with spicy stews. In more 'soupy' dishes, the leaf is added whole or in smaller pieces, the same way Bay leaves would be used.  In salads the leaves are cut in fine, needle-like slivers. The rind is used sparingly; usually grated finely then blended as a paste with other ingredients such as lemon grass. Plant Care

Calamansi [Calamondin] $50  SOLD OUT for this year
 
    (Variegated & Non-variegated Leaf) Our family's personal favorite, from our time living in the Philippines; the tiny but potent Calamansi fruit, from the Calamondin tree. This tree is native to China and the Philippine,s with its fruit being an important crop in both countries. It is hardy, surviving cold weather, but still needs to stay above freezing. It thrives in moist, sunny locations.
    The Calamondin can be identified by its upright branches, evergreen leaves, with blooms all year long, consisting of flowers and fruit; this tree's fruit is naturally segmented, acidic with a sweet and sour taste closely mirroring lemons and limes. It is used to prepare foods and drinks like tea, seafood, meats, sauces, curry and desserts.  (Image shown is 3 yr old tree).

The Nules Clementine is grown across North America as one of the most popular patio grown citrus tree because it easily adapts to countless environments with low
