Ripening fruit on dormant citrus?
« on: October 09, 2014, 09:43:37 PM »
I protect my citrus from severe cold with plastic covers on/off and space heaters as needed in winter. If I'm trying to keep them dormant so they are cold hardy, how can the fruit continue to develope? I know there are early varieties, but my owari and Kimbrough fruit are still small and green as grass. My Star grapefruit did not ripen until late January last winter.
