Remove fruits & flowers on new citrus purchases for the first two years!
- For the health of the plant: Removing any flowers/fruits encourages the development of vigorous roots and strong limbs by redirecting energy away from the flowers and fruit. Being patient allows for a larger, sturdier plant, which will more easily bear the weight of a robust harvest!
- For the health of your family and the environment: All commercially grown citrus sold in Texas is required by state mandate to be treated with neonicotinoid pesticides to control citrus greening disease. After two years the pesticides should no longer be present, and the flowers will pose no threat to bees and other pollinators. If the tree has been cared for organically since purchase from us it will now produce organic fruit.
