The Citrus Lipo that we ship bears some fruits. We package very carefully, but fruits can nevertheless fall off the plant due to ripeness. The Citrus will form new fruits in the spring. The fruits have an ornamental value, they are not edible.
Remarks: Citrus Lipo is a very nice cross between xparadisi x lime. It bears very beautiful large yellow fruits and blooms with wonderfully fragrant white flowers in the spring. This beautiful Citrus is suitable for a conservatory or outside, this variety does not tolerate temperatures below 5 degrees.
Citrus Lipo has regular oval fruits with a size of 10 to 25 cm. The taste resembles that of a lemon and a note of grapefruit. You mainly use the peel and juice of the Citrus Lipo. The aromatic peel gives beautiful flavor accents to dishes.
The Citrus Lipo prefers a place with full sun. They have a strong preference for nutritious soil that contains sufficient lime, preferably clay or loamy soil. Sufficient moisture is necessary during the growth period. In winter, the soil must drain easily. If you give the Citrus sufficient nitrogen-containing fertilizer and an organic fertilizer (for example Plantgrow or dried cow manure) in the early spring, you will get a beautiful fast-growing Citrus.
The cradle of all citrus species is in Asia and archaeological evidence for the cultivation of citrus fruit dates back to 2100 BC. The knobbly candied lemon is the most unknown of the three original citruses, but it is nevertheless the first citrus fruit to reach the Middle East and the Mediterranean region. The Orange was introduced to Europe by the Portuguese in the 16th century. The mandarin came in 1805. The trees only grow in warm countries, such as Spain, Morocco, Greece and Italy. Citrus is also grown as a container plant in the Netherlands.
Citrus Lipo has been selected by Matthijs Hazeleger for Nelumbogarden.
