A cross between Kumquat and Key lime. The tree produces lots of small and juicy lime-like fruit, that turns yellow when they ripen. They have sharp tasty flavour that works well in drinks and cocktails.
Suitable for container growing.
Fruits almost continuously once established.
Flying Dragon - Dwarf cultivar of trifoliata
Allows the tree to grow approximately 1.5-2m
All Citrus Trees are Self Fertile
Best grown in full sun in free draining soil rich in organic matter.
Fruit trees need at least 6 hours full sun.
Dig a hole that is at least twice as deep and twice as wide as the pot that your tree came in. In heavier soils digging a slightly deeper hole is recommended.
Backfill your hole and mix in compost, sheep pellets, and add either Kings Slow Release Fruit and Citrus Fertiliser or Nature’s Organic Fertiliser.
In heavier soils break up the sides of your hole as you backfill as smooth sides to the hole can cause it to act like a bucket and fill up with water. Plant the tree level with the ground, or in heavier soils, into a slight mound to improve drainage.
Use Kings Slow Release Fruit and Citrus Fertiliser. For a natural option feed with Sheep Pellets andOcean Grow.
