Grapefruit - Ruby Red (Seedling) 7/10

I bought this from a nursery two years ago in a pot. This year I planted it in the ground with a mixture of dirt, cow manure and compost.  It doesn't seem to be doing so well.  The Tahitians lime next to it planted at the same with the same mixture seems to be doing fine.  It gets plenty of sun.  I think be the conifers growing behind in along the fence line in the neighbours back yard could be the reason. Or am over compensating with water because of the conifers. Don't know!

Grapefruit (Grafted)

HomegrownHeddibles1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3742 days 19hrs

Ruby Ray variety with pink flesh, suited to coolish climates.

Like most citrus trees, it suffers in the cold and wind in Victoria, but comes good again in the heat of summer and with the aid of fertilisers and tonics.

Seasol and Powerfeed in Spring through to Autumn are important to build up the cell walls so it can better cope with the cold.  A dose of Citrus food pellets in February and August, as well as some chelated iron and Epsom Salts (Magnesium sulphate) corrects the winter yellows.

Chook poo and human yellow fertiliser (!!) once the leaf colour is back to normal in late spring or early summer makes all the difference.

It has tried to fruit a couple of times at least but the foul stinking heat of the 2008/2009 summer, the water restrictions and the hot winds forced it to drop all but one of the fruit that formed.  That poor solitary grapefruit is developing nicely now.  I can't wait to eat my very own pink grapefruit!
