Lime On Tree

Citrus and Florida. Citrus and California. Citrus and Texas. Those are natural pairings.

How about Citrus and the Appalachian Mountains. Citrus and Colorado. Citrus and New England.

It’s time to rethink who can grow lemons, limes, blood oranges, and all sorts of other citrus fruits. The payoff with growing citrus fruits is tremendous if cold-zone organic gardeners decide to take just a few extra steps to do it. My good friend Tom has been growing plump juicy lemons and limes for years in the sometimes frigid mountains of southwest Virginia, elevation about 3,000 feet, and his success should inspire anyone, anywhere.



Homegrown citrus needs no sprays or chemical coatings, none of the industrial additives necessary for handling, storing, and shipping citrus over long distances and many seasons. Fresh organic citrus plucked ripe from the tree at home, on the other hand, provides delicately flavored yet vitamin-packed juice on an as-needed basis. And homegrown organic citrus fruits supply the supple peels that can be grated for zesty cooking, dehydrated for off-season storage, or infused into liqueurs and other distilled beverages.
