    How To Care

    Plant the Ruby Red Grapefruit tree in full sun and well-drained soil. For about 2 months after planting, water your grapefruit tree deeply 2 times per week. Once this citrus tree is established, water deeply when the soil dries out. Citrus trees are drought tolerant and much prefer dry soil over wet soil. However, the Ruby Red Grapefruit tree, just like other citrus plants, love humidity so water over the leaves in dry climates for the best results.

    Feed this citrus tree with a balanced slow release fertilizer in early spring and late summer. Citrus plants in pots lose nutrients much faster than citrus plants in the ground. Therefore they should be fed more often. We recommend feeding potted citrus 3 to 4 times per year with our specially formulated fertilizer. Fertilize citrus in containers at the end of winter, early summer and again in fall for the ideal growth and performance. Use our organic planting mix when planting this citrus plant in a container.

    The Ruby Red Grapefruit tree can tolerate heavy pruning if you want to keep it small.

    The Ruby Red Grapefruit tree can grow in the ground outdoors in zones 8b to 11. Otherwise it must be grown as a patio plant or indoors. It will not tolerate freezing temperatures. Move your grapefruit tree inside when temperatures drop below 40 degrees.
