Nice.   How do you protect them from cold during the winter?

Some of the leaves look very light coloured.  What's happening there?

They are mostly in 100 liters pots. During winter they are in greenhouse with heating system. Yes some of leaves are yellow, this is normal, soon all yellow - old leaves will be replaced with nice fresh green young leaves, it is the same each year.

RadoslaV, some of your varieties are very difficult trees to locate, at least in the USA.  I envy you having a seedless Marsh grapefruit.  I would like to find one.  Dr. Manners says when Marsh  is left hanging on the tree until March it is the best tasting grapefruit variety of them all, at least in his opinion.  Thanks for showing us your trees.  You have always done a good job growing citrus. - Millet
