How tall should a grapefruit tree be?

The grapefruit is a pale lemon color blushed with pink. Reaching heights of up to 20 feet (unpotted), you can even line your property with these citrus trees! However, you can easily keep your tree pruned to the perfect height of 5-6 feet tall.

Similarly, can you grow a grapefruit tree from a seed?

Grapefruit can be grown at home from seeds and planted outdoors in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9 through 11. Although fruit production can be more limited than that of commercially grown trees, growing a grapefruit tree from seed should produce fruit. Remove the seeds from a fresh grapefruit.

How long does it take for a grapefruit tree to bear fruit?

The longer the fruit remains on tree, however, the larger and sweeter it becomes. Over-ripened fruit, which may appear lumpy, should be discarded. Keep in mind that newly planted grapefruit trees will take at least three years before producing quality fruit.
