There is definitely a shortage of citrus this year. These trees are 3 to 4 foot tall and I only have a few of them.
All citrus and olive trees are $55.00
You can order online for delivery to the Saturday Urban Harvest Farmers Market.
These trees are also available at our farm in Hempstead. Visiting is by appointment only.
