Commercial-Quality Citrus Trees Direct to You
We recognized that many homeowners like to have fresh fruit in their own yards, so we began selling to homeowners and garden centers in 2000. Because we also sell our young citrus trees to commercial growers, they are of top quality. We pride ourselves on supplying high quality citrus trees with the right rootstock to insure a hardy tree and hand-budded with the right variety to produce great fruit.
We expanded our citrus tree sales to mail order in 2002. We offer a large variety of orange, lemon, lime and other exotic citrus varieties.
We personally answer your questions concerning your order, our trees, or your trees that are already at home. We think you’ll appreciate our personalized service and you can have comfort knowing that the actual citrus tree grower is answering your questions. Our commitment to quality shows and we know you will be able to see this in our trees.
Brite Leaf Citrus Nursery delivers high quality citrus plants while maintaining excellent customer service. Even though their site says they primarily cater towards businesses who buy in bulk, they made us feel just as important. Thank you again. We will be purchasing from you in the next couple of weeks again. We were so pleased with how healthy the plants were and the whole shopping experience from start to finish.Chris & Tanya Broom
WOW!! My Moro Blood Orange and Pink Lemon arrived in BEAUTIFUL shape!!! They are so healthy and lush. I am so THRILLED with them!!! They are very strong and haven’t lost a single leaf, and they have already started growing a few new leaf buds, and planted in two pretty Italian terra cotta pots. I am going to enter the pink lemon into the flower and garden show in Boston next year; I am so thrilled with it. The variegation is fabulous! I will be throwing your name around and telling EVERYONE how wonderful you all are and how GREAT your trees are. I couldn’t be more happy. Thanks for selling such a wonderful product!Cassie S.
I received the tree today and it’s beautiful. I was amazed by how well it was packed and it looks so healthy. I’ve never ordered plants by mail and I guess I was used to the sad selection of some of the local nurseries here. One quick question–Your instructions say to fertilize in August. Should I do that now when I repot it or has it already been done? Many thanks for tree. I’ll let you know how it does.Steve A

Hi Anna, I just wanted to let you know that I got the order yesterday and am thrilled with the two trees. They are absolutely beautiful! So large and healthy, and the packaging is ingenious and so easy to remove the plants! Thanks for a pleasant experience and fabulous citrus trees. I will be placing another order shortly as soon as you get the Minneola Tangelo in stock.Kathy M.
Just a short note to inform you that my “baby” arrived the Thursday after you sent it. Although not knowing what to expect, I must admit I was impressed with the quality of the plant and packing as well as the instructions.Jeanine
My daughter & son-in-law Anderson in St Augustine were so pleased with the quality of their 3 new citrus trees, and with the shipping care you took of them. Your customer service was superb. Don’t be surprised if we order from you again in the future!
Sincerely, A very satisfied customer.Bernice S.
