Sun Exposure

Full Sun
Citrus trees grow well directly under the full sun all day. Plant your citrus tree where it will receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day to produce flower blossoms and fruits. Trees can be in the shade the rest of the day. Heat Stress - Citrus trees can become stressed from an extreme heat wave if they are not watered well. Symptoms include yellowing leaves and even some dried leaves. Lack of water and intense heat from the sun can cause a loss of a citrus tree if the soil dries past its permanent wilting point. Summer heat waves well over 100 degrees can stress citrus trees. General signs will include yellowing of leaves, even dry leaves that look dry and burned. Increase irrigation during these conditions and if possible spray the leaves with water to cool down the tree and surrounding area. Plant in a location that will receive morning sun and afternoon shade to p Signs of heat stress include brown, yellow, and dry foliage caused by the breakdown of chlorophyll from high temperatures.

Mature Size

A standard citrus tree can grow over 20 feet tall but many homeowners trim to keep them 10-15 feet wide. Dwarf citrus trees are genetically the same, just topped young so the tree grows as a bush. They are often kept about 10 feet tall as well. The difference between a dwarf and standard citrus tree is that standard trees have a single trunk about 2 ft before its topped, while dwarf formed trees are topped immediately above inches above the grafted rootstock. In the home orchard, plant trees about 10 feet apart, and trim them to stay between 8 - 15 feet tall. In a commercial farm, apple trees are spaced 15 feet apart with 20 feet rows are machinery. These trees are grown to 25 feet tall. An apple tree can become almost 40 feet tall in nature. Standard and Semi-dwarf Form: Our trees are grown in standard and semi-dwarf forms. A standard tree grows tall because the tip continues to grow. The tip of a semi-dwarf tree has been cut about 2 feet from the ground, therefore the tree has a shorter branching structure for easy picking.

Planting Installation

Step One: Soil and Planting: Plant in soil that drains well. Dig a hole that is as deep as the tree's roots and at least twice as wide.
Step Two: Place the tree in the hole and backfill around the plant's roots with a mixture of the native soil and high-quality planting mix that has washed sand and organic fertilizer.
Step Three: Create a basin around the roots drip zone so that water collects. Water deeply until the roots and nearby soil is saturated and reaches field capacity. http://ucanr.edu/sites/VCMG/Planting_and_Care_of_Young_Citrus_Trees/?sharing=yes

How To Water

Citrus trees thrive in well-drained soil and should be watered deeply for optimum growth. How much and how often you should water depends on the soil type, weather, plant size, age, and health. In General, deeply water newly planted young citrus trees about once or twice per week most of the year. Water more often in sandy soils and when the weather is hot and windy. Reduce the frequency to weekly in clay soils during the winter. Watch your plants to learn the best schedule in the microclimate in which they grow. Create a watering well with the extra soil dug out of the ground when planting so that water is collected for the tree's roots. Install an irrigation head for each tree. Flood the tree well multiple times to ensure deep watering. With a dedicated sprinkler, water for about 20 minutes depending on your soil during each irrigation session. Drip systems may require 2 hours while bubblers can run for about 5-7 minutes. You may need to increase the frequency in the Summer and reduce it in the winter. The most common problem homeowners make is they water too frequently but do not provide enough water when they irrigate. As mentioned earlier, how often and how much water to give to a citrus tree depends on the age of the tree, soil type, weather conditions such as temperature, humidity, and wind speed. Together, this determines the evapotranspiration rate. This is the rate at which water is evaporating from the soil and transpiring from the leaves. The hotter, dryer, and winder it is, the higher the ET rate more quickly reducing the soil moisture content (SMC). If water is not given the plant will reach a wilting point. If watered in time the plant will survive, but if not given water in time and the drys further it can reach a permanent wilting point where the plant will dry completely. Soil type: The three types of soil are sand, silt, and clay. Loam is a mixture that can be sandy-loam or loamy-clay as a general soil description. Different soil types vary in their water holding capacity and drainage ability. Large established trees are watered less frequently, but longer duration, about once per month in the late Fall and winter and weekly to bi-weekly in the Spring and Summer. Drainage test - Dig a hole and fill with water. There is a drainage problem if the water does not drain away immediately or within an hour.

Fertilizer and Plant Nutrition

Fertilize citrus trees seasonally with an organic fertilizer. Spring is the most important time to provide fertilizer for citrus tree growth. Use an organic fertilizer with a 1-1-1 NPK ratio or one with higher nitrogen to phosphorus and potassium. Re-apply in the Summer as directed on the label. Use lower rates of in the Fall and Winter. Fruit trees and edible plants need nutrients to grow. This is called fertilizer and comes in different forms. Use organic manure, bone meal, blood meal, and humus based fertilizers. Apply fertilizers like manure along with a bone meal, humus based phosphorus fertilizer (1-2-2) NPK ratio in the late winter to promote Spring flower blossoms. with a 2-1-1 NPK ratio to promote plant growth and fruit production.

Winter Pruning and Summer Thinning

Prune fruit trees in the Winter to maintain size and shape to prepare for Spring growth. Thin the tree in the Summer, and remove excessive fruits. Remove any dry twigs and branches. Cut off any new growth below the graft or very low in the tree, this will direct the plant's energy to its main branches. Thin your trees during the Spring and Summer seasons to ensure the plant’s energy is directed as desired. If the plant provides an overly large quantity of fruits for that branch. Reduce the quantity of fruit so that what remains grows larger. This will also prevent broken limbs. Harvest ripe fruit to prevent undesired pests.

Harvesting and Pest Management

The basics of integrated pest management is cleanliness and the use of a combination of methods. This means we use of organic pesticide when the pest population reaches a threshold that requires action. Horticultural oils such as Neem oil is an organic pesticide that controls tiny, soft bodied insects. Use organic Bordeaux and Liqui-cop to manage fungus causing diseases such as powdery mildew, rust, and leaf-curls. Keep a clean environment, free of weeds and dropped fruit that host insects or attract animals. Harvest when fruit reaches size and store indoors. Use repellants and bird netting to protect your harvest from other animals.

Pollination and Propagation

(Grafting/Cutting) Most of Paradise Nursery’s edible plants are self-fruitful. Self-pollinating trees do not require an additional tree to produce fruit. For your convenience, we have indicated which trees require a pollinator, and their associated pollinators. Only the sweet cherries, avocados, and some plums require a pollinator. All of our other propagated edible plants do not require a pollinator. All of our edible plants are either grown from cuttings, budded, or grafted. This way, we can ensure that our plants are high quality and fruit immediately. Plants will generally begin fruiting within a year of planting.

How To Water

How much and how often to water a citrus tree depends on the plants size, age and health, soil type, and the time of years weather such as temperature, wind speed, and humidity. Water newly planted citrus trees 2-3 times per week during the Spring and Summer growing season. Increase or reduce the frequency depending on the Season. Water citrus trees deeply to help establish strong roots. Provide the tree it's own irrigation head and run the system for long durations. Generally run bubbler about 5-7 minutes, Sprinklers between 15-25 minutes, and drip system for 2 hours to irrigate loam soils. Sandy soils may require more frequent watering while clay soils will require longer duration but less frequent irrigation. For example trees growing in clay soil can be watered only weekly in the winter as long as that irrigation session is deep and wind is not a factor. Deeply irrigate newly installed plants once to three times a week depending on the soil. Sandy soils drain quicker then clay because of their larger particle size, while clay soils hold more water because of the larger spaces between the fine clay particles. Hose - This is the least expensive but most time consuming. High rate of operator error due to inexperience, impatience, or neglect. Drip Systems - Very popular due to ease of installation, but often are not scheduled to run long enough to fully saturate the entire drip zone resulting in a lack of water causing wilting, dropped leaves, and lack of growth. A drip system should be run for 1-2 hours once or twice per week to provide deep irrigation Sprinklers - Are more expensive to install but last longer and distribute a larger amount of water to the plant in less time. For a 15 gallon or larger tree a sprinkler should run for 15 - 25 minutes depending on Soil type Bubblers - Bubblers are comparable in cost to sprinkler. They can distribute water even quicker than sprinklers but deliver it in a localized place. Addition bubbler maybe needed as a trees roots grow. Bubblers can saturate a drip zone in 5 minutes. The Drip Zone is the area of the soil under a trees canopy, and as far down as the main root system. Create a berm around this with soil on top of the ground to create a well for water to collect for the trees roots. Soil Moisture Content (%) - A measure of soil wetness as it depletes. Saturation - The point where all the air around the soil is filled with water Field Capacity - Immediately after a saturated soils water drains away, the amount of water the soil can hold. This varies by types of soil (sand, clay, or loam) known as water holding capacity. Wilting Point - As soil depletes at evapotranspiration rate unless it is watered it will reach point where plant will wilt. The ET rate is based on plant health, soil, temp, humidity, and wind speed. Permanent Wilting Point (PWP) - If the soil continue to dry with no water we reach the point where even if you water after the plant will die. Drainage test - Dig a hole and fill with water. There is a drainage problem if the water does not drain away immediately or within an hour.

Reapply with organic high nitrogen (2-1-1) or fertilizers with a 1-1-1 NPK as directed by the label during the Spring and Summer growing season. Do not fertilize in the Fall, new growth at this time will be thin, lanky, and weak.

Compatibility

The two factors that determine if a deciduous fruit trees will grow well and produce fruit in a certain area are the Chill Hour Requirement and the Cold Hardiness of that plant. “Chill hours” are the amount of cold a deciduous fruit tree needs to experience during the winter to produce flower blossoms in the Spring that become fruits later in the season. This is measured in the number of hours below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. At Paradise Nursery we only grow low chill types that occurs in the entire U.S. The second factor is Cold Hardiness.

All of our other propagated edible plants do not require a pollinator. All of our edible plants are either grown from cuttings, budded, or grafted. This way, we can ensure that our plants are high quality and fruit immediately. Plants will generally begin fruiting within a year of planting.

Sun Exposure

Mature Size

In the home orchard, plant trees about 10 feet apart, and trim them to stay between 8 - 15 feet tall. In a commercial farm, apple trees are spaced 15 feet apart with 20 feet rows are machinery. These trees are grown to 25 feet tall. An apple tree can become almost 40 feet tall in nature. Standard and Semi-dwarf Form: Our trees are grown in standard and semi-dwarf forms. A standard tree grows tall because the tip continues to grow. The tip of a semi-dwarf tree has been cut about 2 feet from the ground, therefore the tree has a shorter branching structure for easy picking.

Planting Installation

Step One: Soil and Planting: Plant in soil that drains well. Dig a hole that is as deep as the tree's roots and at least twice as wide.
Step Two: Place the tree in the hole and backfill around the plant's roots with a mixture of the native soil and high-quality planting mix that has washed sand and organic fertilizer.
Step Three: Create a basin around the roots drip zone so that water collects. Water deeply until the roots and nearby soil is saturated and reaches field capacity.

Plant Maintenance

How To Water

Deciduous plants go dormant (lose their leaves) in the winter, therefore watering should be stopped. Discontinue watering until the plant leafs out in the early spring. Water newly planted fruit trees weekly (1 x / week) during the cooler early spring and fall seasons, and 2 - 3 times per week during the hot summer season. Increase the frequency of irrigation as the temperature and evapotranspiration rates increase. Once the tree roots grow larger and the plant establishes, irrigation will be needed less frequent.

Fertilizer and Plant Nutrition

Fruit trees and edible plants need nutrients to grow. This is called fertilizer and comes in different forms. Use organic manure, bone meal, blood meal, and humus based fertilizers. Apply fertilizers like manure along with a bone meal, humus based phosphorus fertilizer (1-2-2) NPK ratio in the late winter, right before spring growth. Reapply with organic high nitrogen (2-1-1) or fertilizers with a 1-1-1 NPK as directed by the label during the Spring and Summer growing season. Do not fertilize in the Fall, new growth at this time will be thin, lanky, and weak.

Winter Pruning and Summer Thinning

Prune fruit trees in the Winter to maintain size and shape to prepare for Spring growth. Thin the tree in the Summer, and remove excessive fruits. Remove any dry twigs and branches. Cut off any new growth below the graft or very low in the tree, this will direct the plant's energy to its main branches. Thin your trees during the Spring and Summer seasons to ensure the plant’s energy is directed as desired. If the plant provides an overly large quantity of fruits for that branch. Reduce the quantity of fruit so that what remains grows larger. This will also prevent broken limbs. Harvest ripe fruit to prevent undesired pests.

Harvesting and Pest Management

The basics of integrated pest management is cleanliness and the use of a combination of methods. This means we use of organic pesticide when the pest population reaches a threshold that requires action. Horticultural oils such as Neem oil is an organic pesticide that controls tiny, soft bodied insects. Use organic Bordeaux and Liqui-cop to manage fungus causing diseases such as powdery mildew, rust, and leaf-curls. Keep a clean environment, free of weeds and dropped fruit that host insects or attract animals. Harvest when fruit reaches size and store indoors. Use repellants and bird netting to protect your harvest from other animals.

Compatibility

The two factors that determine if a deciduous fruit trees will grow well and produce fruit in a certain area are the Chill Hour Requirement and the Cold Hardiness. “Chill hours” are the amount of cold a deciduous fruit tree need to produce fruit. This is measured in the number of hours below 45 degrees Fahrenheit a plant must experience during its winter dormancy. Paradise Nursery only grows Low Chill fruit trees that meet the chill requirements of all areas of the United States. The second factor is Cold Hardiness. Cold Hardiness refers to the minimum temperature a plant can tolerate. The USDA’s Cold Hardiness Zones indicate the average minimum winter temperatures of areas. Based on the shipping zipcode, our website will only allow you to add plants to your cart that grow within your USDA Hardiness Zone, and tolerate your climate.

Mature Size

A high density compact tree orchard is one where trees are kept small to grow more types in less space. Trees are often planted 10 feet apart and pruned to keep around 10-12 feet tall. Although in a commercial farms Apple trees are usually spaced 15 feet apart with 20 feet rows for machinery, in home orchards people want a small tree to reduce the mess of too much fruit. Standard and Semi-dwarf Form: Our trees are grown in standard and semi-dwarf forms. A standard tree grows tall because the tip continues to grow. The tip of a semi-dwarf tree has been cut about 2 feet from the ground, therefore the tree has a shorter branching structure for easy picking.

Lang Jujube Tree Care And Information

Also, Lang Jujube tree is known as Chinese date or Annab, jujubes are very healthy and nutritious. jujubes are small, sweet and delicious fruit white flesh fruit that are round to oval shape. Eat them fresh or enjoy dried. Jujube fruit is green when immature, but turns yellow with spots when ripe. Eat with the thin skin as it contains many nutrients. Considered a superfood, jujubes contain a lot of Vitamin C.

Grow jujube trees at home. They have been cultivated for thousands of years. The tree is deciduous and can grow 10-30 feet tall. The leaves are small, dark green, and bi-pinnately compound, so the tree is drought tolerant. Plant jujube trees in the full sun and water once or twice a week while actively growing in the Spring and Summer. Reduce water in the Fall as the tree drops its leaves. Little to no supplemental water is needed in the winter while the tree is dormant. Branches naturally droop creating a beautiful appearance. Harvest fruit in the Fall.

Jujube Tree Sun exposure and Size

Plant a jujube tree in the full sun. A jujube tree can grow 15 – 20 feet tin height, but easily prune to keep 8 – 15 feet tall.  Plant trees as close as 8- 10 feet apart, but allow for more space if you intend the tree to grow wider.

How To Water, Fertilize, and Prune a Lang Jujube Tree

Water the jujube tree deep but not too frequent. Plant in good soil that drains well. Create a berm around the drip zone. This ensures the trees have a good watering well around the roots to collect water. Water new trees regularly, about 1-2 times per week during the Spring growth season. Increase the frequency to 2-3 times per week during the hot summer. As the weather cools in the Fall, reduce the frequency of irrigation back down to once per week. Discontinue water during the winter while the tree is dormant.

Fertilize the jujube tree in the Spring with a balance organic fruit tree fertilizer with a 1-1-1 or a 2-1-1 NPK ratio, such as (5-5-5)or (6-3-3). Manure can be applied in cool climates. Reapply growth formula fertilizer in the Summer. Do not fertilize in the Fall as this the time the tree has slowed growth. Apply a fertilizer with low nitrogen and high phosphorus and potassium with a 1-2-2 or 1-4-4 NPK ratio such as 4-12-12 analysis.

Prune the jujube tree in the winter, while the plant is dormant. Cut the tip to prevent it from becoming too tall and promote side branches from growing. Remove any new growth below the graft, low in the branches towards the center of the trees, and crossing towards the wrong direction. Thin your tree in the summer to remove dry twigs, water sprouts, too many fruits to direct desired growth.

Jujube Tree Pest Management

Use a dormant fruit tree spray / horticultural oil in the winter. To protect the harvest use an animal repellant. Also, cover the fruits or net the entire tree to create a barrier.
