citrus fruit salad tree
I wanted to buy a 36" box Tangelo tree for a very large space in my garden. The nursery just called me back and said that they can't get tangelos over 15 gallon size. As a an alternative, they suggested a 36" box fruit salad tree ...I was so surprised; it sounds like a joke. But this is a large scale nursery that sells wholesale to ranches as well as to residential customers and they said homeowners really like fruit salad trees because they can get a residential size crop of oranges, lemons, limes, etc. without planting 5 trees! Anybody have any experience with these trees such as knowing if they thrive? I know the mail-order catalog trees are often not good, but this is a big box tree. Thanks!
