Product information "Citron 'Etrog'"

Growth: Small and weak-growing
Flowers: White flower colour, purple buds
Fruits: Oblong, longitudinally ribbed, but otherwise the surface of the peel is very smooth, compared to the other citrons; almost no flesh, dry taste and very sour
History and use: Etrog citrons are indispensable to the Jewish folk festival (Sukkot), which is a kind of Thanksgiving, also a reminder of dwelling in the desert. In the left hand, a bouquet with a palm branch, three myrtle branches and two date palm tree branches. The Etrog citron is held in the left hand. This must meet the highest quality requirements and also bear an undamaged stamp. The need for these citrons for this Jewish festival in September or October has built its own tradition for centuries and has made the fruits of this variety very valuable and expensive.
Frost hardiness/overwintering: Like all citrus plants, it is sensitive to cold; down to-2°C, the foliage loses its foliage in the winter, then continue to overwinter at 5-8°C, in the spring the Etrog citron grows wonderfully again

Propagation (Andrew)

Are these grown from seed or grafted? (Grafted etrogs are not kosher for Sukkot so I'd rather have one grown from seed)

Hi Andrew, they are all grafted, we don’t have seed propagated ones, I'm sorry. Best regards

Etrog growing in the UK? (Alias Cummins)

Hi there, I was wondering whether it would be possible to grow an etrog in a small greenhouse in the UK? Would it be possible with sun lamps, careful monitoring etc? Would like to grow etrogs as a hobby.

Etrog growing in the UK (Lubera)

Hi Alias Cummins, it should work aslo in UK without lamps. Important is in winter temperatures between 5 and 10 degrees and “normal” sunlight. Best regards
