Citrus needs a certain level of accumulated heat in order to ripen. Since lemons are eaten for their acidic taste, they don’t need the accumulated heat in order to sweeten up and are therefore suited for cool, coastal climates. Grapefruit and oranges need a high accumulated heat and only reach peak quality in hot inland and desert areas. Most citrus are self-fruitful.
