Citron - Cultivation
Citron is the fruit of a small tree that grows best in mild climates as it is susceptible to temperature, diseases, and insects. It thrives in warm, sunny locations in rich soil with good aeration. Citron also needs to be fertilized every two weeks in the immediate growing stages and watered consistently to keep moisture in the soil. Citron is commonly grown from cuttings from young branches and will begin to bear fruit in three years with spring being peak season. As the fruit begins to grow, the branches may need to be staked to help support the weight and to prevent the branches from touching the ground.
