Pink Grapefruit

Postby donba » Tue Nov 22, 2016 12:38 am

We are looking for a patio sized pink grapefruit tree. Anyone had any success growing any in our heat, in so.cal. ? If so what type ? Our last peach tree is dying, 4 years with out any fruit except one or two scrawny ones each year. All of our citrus seams to do well, so thought a pink grapefruit might be tasty. Thanks in advance.

Hi donba,

While I personally haven't grown PGF here, this was a great quick article that mentions 9a as the typical min requirements... https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible ... efruit.htm

I'm an urban gardener here in southern CA (zone 9a/Orange county) and just couldn't abide seeing the question unanswered here...lol...you most likely already found your own answer.

if you go onto youtube, I really recommend a few channels based here in southern CA.... CaliKim and CAgardener....good luck and happy greenthumbing!
In honor of RebNavy...RIP buddy. You made me smile. :)

Driven, are you sure you are from Kalifornia? You make a lot of sense.

Grapefruit (Pink or otherwise) should do well in your area. Heck, if it will grow in Phoenix (and it does...my aunt has a couple of trees), it should be fine in SoCal.

Santa Clarita is about half way between the high and low desert weather wise. Not quite as hot as the low desert in the summer, usually only around 105 + during the days. Not as cold as the upper desert in the winter usually only 3-4 nights that drop to 32 degrees. All of or fruit trees did poorly, most have died. The Citrus all seem to do much better......
