About: Citrus Medica Plant, or the Citron tree, is a captivating member of the citrus family that traces its roots to the Mediterranean region. Characterized by large, lemon-like fruits and fragrant flowers, this evergreen tree has become a symbol of abundance and prosperity. Vermi Organics proudly presents a carefully nurtured Citrus medica, allowing enthusiasts to cultivate a piece of Mediterranean allure in their own gardens.

Benefits: Beyond its ornamental appeal, the Citrus Medica Plant offers a host of benefits. The fruits are not only visually striking but also contain essential oils that are valued for their aromatic qualities. Additionally, the Citron tree is associated with cultural and historical significance, making it a meaningful addition to your green space.

Type of Plant: Citrus medica is ideally suited for outdoor cultivation in regions with a warm and subtropical climate. It thrives in well-draining soil and requires ample sunlight to produce its signature fruits. While primarily an outdoor plant, it can be grown in large containers and brought indoors during colder seasons, provided it receives sufficient light.

Care: Providing optimal care for your Citrus medica involves several key considerations. Plant it in well-draining soil enriched with organic matter, and ensure it receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily. Regular watering is essential, with the soil kept consistently moist but not waterlogged. Pruning can be done to shape the tree and encourage air circulation. Additionally, fertilize during the growing season to support healthy growth and fruit development.

Common Names: Citrus medica is known by various common names that reflect its cultural and geographical diversity. Some of these names include Citron tree, Buddha's Hand, Etrog, and Cedro.
