Growing citrus in Sacramento County
Sacramento County that I am aware of,” Strutz said proudly.
Sacramento used to be a hotbed for citrus; that’s how Orangevale and Citrus Heights got their names. But the annual threat of killer frost wiped out most commercial orchards in the greater Sacramento area. Clustered in the Sierra foothills, only mandarin growers remain.
Strutz knew he was taking risks with citrus. Before starting his ranch in 2009, he was a longtime horticultural adviser to large nursery growers.
After planting his first trees in 2010, Strutz now has more than a thousand in the ground and is finally harvesting a viable crop.
“We primarily grow mandarins,” he said. “The Owari Satsumas have done the best.”
Strutz also grows extra-early Okitsu Ease mandarins, which ripen in November. On the other end, Gold Nuggets ripen in February. In between are four Clementine hybrids: Tahoe Gold, Shasta Gold, Yosemite Gold and Tango. Also in his citrus orchard are Meyer and Lisbon lemons, blood oranges, Cara Cara oranges, Oro Blanco grapefruit, Chandler pomelo, Key limes, kumquats and the oddball Buddha’s hand.
In winter, frost is constantly on his mind. Limes are the least frost resistant; they’re tender at 28 degrees. Orange trees are OK down to 25 degrees. Satsuma mandarins, the most frost-tolerant of these citrus crops, are cold-hardy to 18 degrees.
“We cover the Meyer lemons, limes and Buddha’s hand with Agribon floating row covers for frost protection, so we have a very nice, early and heavy crop of lemons,” he said.
Frost damage can be seen on many of his unprotected trees, a reminder of a few nights below 20 degrees two years ago.
“Once the trees grow enough mass, they can protect their core,” he added. “But you really have to protect young trees.”
Strutz planted his lime trees along the walls of his home on the ranch property for extra protection.
Chilly nights below freezing still can “burn” leaves and outer branches, dwarfing the tree’s overall size. The foliage turns brown and crisp as moisture is pulled out of the leaves. That “burnt” foliage serves to insulate the tree and keep it alive.
“They develop these huge trunks, but the trees stay short and bushy,” Strutz said next to a full-size mandarin tree under 6 feet tall. “It makes them easier to pick.”
Under normal conditions, a mature orange tree can reach... (Sacramento Bee)Jan 8, 2016
