Your Oros are marvelous, Matt! Mine was....stunted this year, only got about a foot tall, never did flower....until a couple weeks ago, after I brought it in. Now I have flowers and fruit setting. Not sure what to do but go with it. Next season she gets a new home, a 10 gallon Air-Pot (or cheaper reasonable facsimile)...I'm still thinking of a raised bed plot specific for summering over-winters...and a greenhouse............

If you're able I'd maybe try an experiment with your looong season plants.

try a 5ga and a 10 ga and see if their is a difference in yield. You could even clone one of your OW's for the project.

I think confining the plant to a smaller container may be the way to force a harvest rather than getting bigger and bigger plants...with more green pods. 


A green house would probably help out a lot. especially if you had some passive/active heat source.

This Fall came too cold too soon here as well

I made an awesome sauce with green baccatums.
Bunch of green lemondrop and bishops crowns roasted with tomatillos, garlic and sweet onion.
Pull them out when things start to get little black bits on them and then blend with a bit of salt, lime juice/vinegar to taste.

I also sweet pickled green and yellow Aji Amarillo rings. They made for a tasty side.

Green baccatums are very useful still.

have fun waiting the 10-12 years for grapefruit. 

all joking aside, i've read you'll probably get nothing like the fruit you ate at your friends. most citrus will grow nothing like the parent.


Key Limes grow very true

Kumquats should be pretty close.

and both of these are suppose to bare fruit in 3-5 years.



I would cut off those stragglers and just keep the strong plant. don't risk damaging the good plant's roots.


YMMV, i live in WI and i've just read about these things. I've got 2 two year old Key Limes and a one year old kumquat...cuz I didn't want to wait that long for fruit..fingers crossed for flowers maybe next summer
