Semi-Dwarf vs. Standard citrus trees:
Semi-dwarf citrus trees grow to approximately two-thirds the size of a standard tree form. Depending on the position of the lower branches on the trunk, a semi-dwarf citrus can look like a bush with a short trunk, or a tree with a trunk that is shorter than the Standard tree form.
The average height of a mature Oroblanco Grapefruit tree:
Semi-Dwarf tree: 10-15 ft. tall.
Standard tree: 15-20 ft. tall.
The mature height and fruit production of your Oroblanco Grapefruit Tree depend on several environmental factors such as climate, light, soil type, texture, fertility and moisture, and pruning practices. Your citrus tree can easily be maintained at a smaller size with annual pruning.
