Re: Citrus possible in Austin TX?

Citrus is possible in Austin and the cold hardy types have been there long term (post 1989). I left a number of satsumas and oranges at my old place in Austin. Around town there are numerous door-yard trees of satsuma, orange, grapefruit, kumquat and calamondin especially in the Montopolis neighborhood in town. The majority of ATX is 8b with a few pockets of 9a in town and around Mopac. The cold blast of 2011 was the worst for this area since 1989. I grow a number of cold hardy citrus in Dallas and in San Marcos, TX.
