How long do citrus trees produce fruit in

winter climates?I need an exact

answer for one of my projects and I can't seem to find any answers

Hi

Laura, I am new to your site. I am a gardener/restaurant chef and

actually in your title you say you are a teacher. The "extremes of

heat and cold" are true of all plant life. In terms of plants, the

main difference is how cold-hardy they are. High heat or low

temperature, i.e., drought conditions, and drought, particularly in

winter, is where you will find plants which are killed or killed out.

In general the ones which grow best in those situations are the plants

that do best in either a low temperature or a high temperature or both

extreme conditions.

With the citrus, and with citrus trees, if you have a hot

summer, i.e., one where the average daytime temperatures reach the

high 90s, the citrus fruit will not appear until the average

temperatures drop down to 80F or lower. There are exceptions, but most

are found only in places that have cold winters. With a cold winter,

the temperatures drop, the temperature of the citrus house, and the

temperatures of the branches of the citrus tree are stable, and the

citrus fruit can set. A few will set as early as the end of the summer

and be ready to harvest in early fall, after only a brief fall season.

As a restaurateur or cook, you will use the fruit the best in the

autumn when it is at its sweetest and at its ripest. You will use the

lemonade or the juice the best at that time of the year.

However, in the following winter, temperatures sometimes drop

to the low 20s or 30s. That causes the fruit of the citrus tree to

stay on the tree. It has to keep the leaves from freezing. The

fruit of a citrus tree in a cold winter can stay on the tree for

several weeks and some will hang on for many months. Since the fruit

is on the tree and on the branches, the fruit gets to be ripe and

sweet throughout that time. Since you are trying to preserve it and

use it at its best, you are no doubt well advised to harvest the fruit

when it is not yet ripe enough to use. For that reason, it is good

form to cut the fruit early and peel it early. You could, of course,

expect that you will be ready to harvest the fruit much sooner than

that, after one or two weeks, at which time the fruit will be ready

to eat and to drink.

Other fruits which bear in winter are apples, which may stay

on the trees and mature into hard fruit and trees bear grapes in

winter. There are many varieties of grapes that do very well in cold

climates. In addition to those, the area of production of mushrooms

can extend into the winter months.

Hope this helps, and thanks for the questions.
