Cit­rus

NZ Lifestyle Block - - In The Home Orchard -

Cit­rus are my hobby species, so I have striven to keep alive all kinds, with some fail­ures. Or­anges don’t like the South Is­land. The ones in bold bear fruit most years, in small quan­ti­ties, and kaffir lime* and oth­ers may be used for their leaves in cui­sine. They hate frost and drought, and they need dolomite lime and sum­mer wa­ter.
