Products - SuperCitrus Trees
SuperCitrus Trees are grown predominantly for Commercial Citrus Farmers. The trees are commonly shipped within the California Citrus Industry which is TreeSource’s core customer base. However, because Super Citrus Trees only weigh about 5 pounds each, they can be shipped almost anywhere.
What is a SuperCitrus Tree? It’s a container grown tree produced in a greenhouse that incorporates 21st century technology. For over a decade, TreeSource has innovated and refined container growing of citrus trees. A unique pot design and special growing media makes our citrus trees a SuperCitrus Tree that grows stronger than the traditional Ball and Burlap tree or any other container grown citrus tree. Over 300,000 of our SuperCitrus Trees can be grown and stored in insect-resistant facilities to protect against Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP) or Aphids carrying Citrus Tristeza Virus (CTV).
The power is in the root system. Recent breakthroughs in nursery container technology insure SuperCitrus Trees have massive amounts of roots that are ready to charge into your orchard’s soil. There is no root circling and a specialized soil media insures maximum root development. You’ll be amazed at how many roots are in such a small container! A tree in a sock? SuperCitrus Trees arrive with the rootball wrapped in a special recycled denim sock that decomposes quickly after planting. No handling of empty containers, easy to lay out in the field, and great for mechanical planting…. The sock is a helpful innovation for ease of planting.
A finished SuperCitrus Tree takes about 12 months to finish from the time it is budded. This time may be a bit longer if a slow growing variety and or rootstock is desired. If you are interested in ordering, it is important that you call TreeSource 18 months before you plan to plant your orchard to insure the best selection and to provide adequate time for us to make an outstanding SuperCitrus Tree for you. Each SuperCitrus Trees comes with a fiberglass stake. This reusable stake is stronger than it looks and has the ability to move when those pesky dust devils blow through your new planting. After one year, the stake is no longer needed and TreeSource credits your account with $.05/stake that is returned. If you pull them out of the field, we’ll even send someone to pick them up. Recycling the stake and container helps us reduce our carbon footprint and are Sustainable Practices.
