Dwarf Citrus Trees

Fruit Trees > Dwarf Fruit Trees > True Dwarf Plants > Dwarf Citrus Trees


Dwarf citrus trees such as oranges, lemons, and limes are living conversation pieces. Daley's Nursery has been growing dwarf citrus trees that give delicious fruits for over 30 years. How? They graft a normal fruiting branch of a fruit tree (called a scion) to a dwarf tree rootstock to create a small tree that produces the fruit of its full-size cousin. Their shiny foliage, bright fruits, and fragrant blossoms provide year-round enjoyment and is the reason they are so sought after as containerised pots. Dwarf citrus trees require periodic repotting (every third year or so.) They have a shallow root system, so a wide container is far better than a deep one. When repotting, use a fresh mixture of one-third peat moss, one-third sand, and one-third sterile potting soil. Citrus trees respond well to pruning. Keep all the dead branches trimmed off, and thin the plant to the three strongest trunks.

Dwarf Peach Tree

Fruit Trees > Dwarf Fruit Trees > True Dwarf Plants > Dwarf Peach Tree


This tree is sought after just as much for its ornamental value as it is for the delicious fruit. Although small in stature these peaches are anything but small in taste. They are a white fleshed freestone variety ideally suited to the subtropics. The compact size of this variety (height can be kept to 1 metre) makes it ideal for the back yard planting, container planting or as a potted specimen. An added advantage of this variety is its beautiful pink flowers that bloom in late July making it also very ornamental. The fruit ripen around late December.

Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$40.95 ($23.90-$79.00 choose a size)

This mulberry has a very low chill factor making it ideal for our subtropical climate. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree. A benefit of a mulberry tree is that the fruit ripens over an extended period of time unlike other fruit that often ripens all at once. The fruits of the black mulberry, considered the tastiest and most versatile of the mulberries are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. The fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same as that on the large black mulberry that we all know and love. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not devoured fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video )This variety performs excellent in the Subtropics. There has been feedback that this variety doesn't perform as well in Temperate Climates.
