Grapefruit Tree?

My husband's grandmother loves to spend her days germinating seeds from various fruit and vegetable species.  Last year, she sprouted several avocado trees.  This year, she has taken up citrus.  And yes, I am now the proud owner of a tiny grapefruit tree. 

I am not a houseplant person and I'm embarrassed to admit that I've killed every plant that has set foot indoors.  Now, I'm terrified that I will kill grandma's tree. 


  1. One of the ladies from my husband's office had a grapefruit tree. She used to bring bags and bags of grapefruit for anyone who wanted. (She moved, unfortunately.)

    I always wondered how she got a grapefruit tree. Perhaps she grew it from seed.

  2. I'm on my fourth lemon tree, having killed off the first three... the current one has lasted the longest, so I've hopes. It's now having it's summer vacation on the porch, but will have to be pulled in for winter. What zone are you in?

    1. I'm in 5b, so it definitely couldn't survive the winter outdoors, but I suppose I should have put it outside today -- it was very hot!
