Abstract
Citrus trees are among the favorite fruit trees grown around Hawai‘i’s homes. The main types grown are lemon, lime, orange, mandarin (tangerine), tangelo, grapefruit, and pummelo. Some culinary and ornamental citrus species are also grown. Only a few studies on variety suitability or crop management under Hawai‘i conditions have been reported. The recommendation of varieties in this publication incorporates the practical experience of CTAHR horticulturists. The advice on cultural practices given here draws on the general knowledge of practices suitable for fruit trees and incorporates recommendations on citrus production from other citrus-growing areas.
