Many fruit trees are outdoor species of bonsai, with the exception of the Cherry tree, which can be grown indoors. For the most part, growing bonsai fruit trees is the same as any other tree. They need to be pruned, fertilized and re-potted just like all other bonsai. The difference is you should keep a closer watch on the amount of sunlight they get (more is better). Moisture levels can be slightly different for certain trees (read descriptions carefully). For instance if you grow a bonsai cherry tree, you need to keep the soil moisture at a higher level than a black olive.

Place bonsai fruit trees in a well-lit area, preferably in direct sunlight. If growing indoors, set the tree next to a window that gets plenty of light throughout the day and keep it away from appliances that produce heat, such as ovens. The heat from these items can hinder the growth of the tree and cause the leaves to wilt.

All bonsai fruit trees can grow small or full-sized citrus fruit.

Meyer lemon trees (Citrus meyeri) and calamondin orange trees (C. mitis) are good citrus trees for bonsai. Meyer lemon bears full-size lemons on bonsai trees and likes loamy, acidic, wet soil that’s not soggy. Orange trees have pretty, fragrant flowers and fruit all year long. Its fruit, which takes nearly one year to ripen, is edible, but not often eaten. This tree enjoys full sun to partial shade, regular watering interspersed with dry periods, tolerates moderate drought and needs to grow outdoors.

Caring for fruiting bonsai trees

Apply an organic fertilizer every month during the spring and summer seasons, when the tree is actively growing. During the winter and fall, no fertilization treatments are necessary. In colder regions, bring the tree indoors in the winter, especially if it is a species that is not frost-tolerant.

With bonsai fruit trees, you must water the soil, not the foliage. This prevents damage to the leaves and buds from damage through sunburn etc.

If your fruit tree is bursting forth with a heavy amount of fruit, be sure to remove around half of it to avoid weakening. Too much fruit will weigh down branches or over-absorb nutrients; both can kill a fruit tree!

Remove leaves as needed to allow light and air to reach all parts of the tree. Prune branches to shape the tree in springtime, before leaves emerge.
