Mature trees are moderately sized, up to 3m high and 2m wide, although this varies depending on variety.
They prefer lots of sun, protection from strong winds and fertile soil with good drainage. Citrus trees also require protection against frosts.
Most citrus varieties are self-fertile, and will pollenate themselves. Ask your local nursery for variety-specific information.
Note: growing lots of citrus together will cause more pips in the fruit, as they will cross pollenate.
