Re: Neighborhood Cats / Poncirus trifoliata

They grow wild around here.  If given favorable conditions they can  get as 
tall as 15 -20 foot.  My mom's satsuma died back (was the first year  they 
planted it, and the temps got down to the teens) past the graft  area......so when 
the citrus came back in the spring, it grew out of the root  stock which was 
the trifoliate.  Her tree is a good 15 foot tall, and lush,  full of oranges 
every year.  They are sour oranges, so can't be eaten  regularly, but they are 
great for making orange-ade (instead of lemonade).   Also the sour orange is 
used in a lot of South American and Cuban  cooking.....her neighbors love it.

How big  do they get where they are hardy and will they survive w/  little
supplemental watering?
