Fun facts:

To the right is a citrus tree that we successfully transplanted into the ground. It should fruit within one to two years because it is a grafted citrus tree. Grafting is plant propagation by physically joining two pieces of plant tissue together in such a way that they will unite and subsequently grow and develop as one composite plant.
