These unusual Citrus trees (Citrus bergamia) are also known as Bergamot Lemon or Orange Bergamot and are prized for their fragrant leaves as well as their fruit, making them a fantastic gift for a citrus collector or chef. They are thought to be a hybrid between a lemon and bitter orange, and with the right conditions will produce yellow fruit the size of an orange when ripe. You can also use the leaves to make Earl Grey tea.

Very sturdy and healthy tree. A bit of confusion that it was a Bergamot due to poor labelling but customer service very swiftly sorted this out.

These unusual citrus trees are the true Citrus bergamia used to flavour Earl Grey Tea and make a lovely feature with heavily perfumed flowers and unusual drop shaped fruits.

Citrus trees need light. In the summer, your bergamot plant will enjoy a patio in sun or partial shade. However bergamot trees are not hardy and will need to come inside as soon as there is a nip in the evening air. When indoors choose the lightest spot in your house, ideally near a window but away from cold draughts and radiators.

Because these plants are in a pot they will need regular watering, wait for the top of the soil to be bone dry before giving it a heavy water. Remove the tree from the outer container, then water thoroughly from the top of the soil, allowing all the excess water to drain away before placing the tree back into its normal position. This will ensure all the roots get the water they need, but the tree is not left standing in water, this will rot the root system.

It is difficult to be specific about how often your plant will need watering as it depends on how warm the room is and how much sunshine there is that week. As a guide you might expect to water thoroughly once every 7-10 days in winter but water almost every day in the summer months. On arrival your plant will be well fed but after a few weeks it will benefit from a proper citrus feed every other watering. As a rule, bergamot trees tend to produce flowers in late spring followed by distinctive fruits that can take 10 months or more to fully ripen. Don’t be alarmed if only a few of the flowers set, it is normal for most flowers to drop, leaving just a handful of fruit on a tree this size.

Problem Solving:

Citrus trees are not the easiest of plants, but they are very rewarding. Look out for signs of trouble and try to treat problems early. The most common problem is leaves dropping due to over or under watering. If leaves drop quickly this is usually due to underwatering; if they are leathery and dropping slowly, the chances are it’s been over watered. A return to a regular and thorough watering routine should lead to recovery.

If new growth is very light in colour or has mottled markings your plant may be lacking trace elements. A good dose of citrus feed should ensure that new growth is a healthier green. Our ciitrus trees are grown in a pesticide free environment. In the unlikely event that you find pests e.g. aphids these can be removed by hand or with a soap and water spray.
