Citrus paradisi 'Oro Blanco'
Plant 8 to 10 feet on center. Can be kept to any size under 10 feet with pruning
Oro Blanco Grapefruit does well in sandy well drained soils, but they will adapt to most native soils. Select a location that has well-draining soil because citrus will not tolerate standing in water during the winter. If poor drainage is suspected plant in a mound 24 inches high and 4 feet wide or a raised bed 12 to 18 inches high and 3 feet wide. Mulching helps retain moisture and helps to stabilize the soil temperature as well as preventing the mound from settling before the roots get established. Requires full sun with at least 8 hours of direct sunlight favoring the morning sun. Trees tend to be wide and bushy but can easily be kept 7' - 10' with regular pruning. Makes an excellent container plant. The white flowers are very fragrant.
