Answer: Sacramento's summertime heat and humidity will suit your new citrus tree just fine, but the winters outdoors will be just too cold for it to survive. In southern California, where oranges are grown commercially, growers scramble to protect the trees if temperatures in the 30's are predicted. My suggestion is to keep your tree in a container and move it indoors over the winter months. You can take it outdoors in the spring and bring it back indoors in the fall. Place your tree in a sunny spot while indoors and water as the soil dries. When you take it outdoors, find a sunny spot and water daily when the weather gets really hot. Good luck with your tree!
