Pot of gold.

How much fruit your plant has—and how big it is—will depend on the time of year that you get it. Size can range from 15 to 22 inches tall and 6 to 8 inches wide.

Once your tree has arrived safe and sound, set it in a bright spot indoors—it’ll need several hours of direct sunlight daily. Water it as needed to keep the soil moist but not wet. (The top inch of soil should dry out between waterings.) Planning to repot? Use a planter of the same size or larger, with one part potting soil, one part organic compost, and one part perlite or vermiculite. Depending on the time of year, trees will bear various sizes and colors of fruit at time of delivery. If you have flowers, you’ll soon have fruit! Once the flowers have fallen and you see the fruit buds, it will take on average 6 months to have ripened mature fruit.
