Creating the sights, smells and tastes of a beautiful home is easy with a Citrina…
Citrina miniature citrus plants are the perfect inspiration for setting your own mark on a living room, patio or even on your cooking. Each of Citrina varieties brings the fresh aroma, lush greens and delicious fruit of the Algarve citrus groves into the home – a houseplant full of character and personality.
Back in 1970 British couple Andrew and Lindsey Henley-Welch dreamed of creating a citrus tree farm somewhere hot and sunny. The couple moved to Portugal where their passion became a reality. In fact they were so good at it that, by 1980, their nursery was providing local Portuguese farmers with beautiful fruit trees.
Word spread, and soon they were supplying citrus trees to farmers across Portugal. Then in the 1980s, Andrew and Lindsey branched out into ornamental plants and very soon became internationally recognised as ‘the’ European specialists in miniature or dwarf ornamental citrus plants.
After yet more research, development and love for these exquisite houseplants, the couple went on to develop a range of citrus houseplants with certified edible fruit. Today all Citrina miniature citrus plants yield edible fruit – the result of 45 years of passion for this most beautiful, aromatic and practical of all houseplants.
