Dwarf Citrus for Indoor Gardens
You may think the only way to get homegrown citrus fruit is to move to Florida or Southern California, but that's not the case. Citrus trees are now available in varieties well-suited to life indoors. Not only do these plants provide plenty of fresh fruit to use in your kitchen, they make striking houseplants. Under the proper conditions, there's no reason why any citrus tree wouldn't grow indoors, but you should stick with the varieties that growers have developed for small spaces. Learn more about them.
