The Q&A Archives: Grapefruit Tree in Minnesota?

Question: Can a grapefruit tree grow in Minnesota? I have a grapefruit tree and I was wondering if I can plant it in the ground and if it will survive the winter.

Answer: Sorry, citrus is frost tender, even in hot or desert conditions where it thrives in orchards, such as Arizona or Florida. You could put it outside during the summer and bring it indoors during the winter. Good luck!
