Grapefruit Tree Cultivation and Care:

Grapefruit loves sunny places for many hours a day and sheltered from winds. It fears the cold and night frosts, it suffers from too high temperatures and sultry heat. In areas with too harsh climates, it is recommended to grow grapefruit in large pots so that it can be repaired before winter arrives. It prefers loose soil, rich in organic matter and very well drained. The ideal growing medium is a medium-textured soil consisting of common garden soil mixed with coarse gravel and sand. The grapefruit plant is generally satisfied with rains but during periods of prolonged drought and in summer it is advisable to water the plant regularly if the soil is too arid and dry. Irrigation is essential from setting up to the complete development of the fruit.
