What’s a cocktail tree?

I was in PHX last week doing pre-planning meetings with a client when we were talking about fruit trees in yards. I am always fascinated with people who have citrus trees.  I can’t imagine walking out to my back yard and having an orange tree or lemon tree and just helping myself.  That is when Mara  – my client piped up and said she had a cocktail tree in her yard.  A cocktail tree what the heck is that?  Mara politely explained it is a rare type of tree that spouts lemon, limes and oranges. Like how kool is that.  It doesn’t do all 3 fruit at the same time but on her tree and I did go see it she had lemons and oranges. Mara was so kind as to let me take a bag of fruit home. The oranges were over the top sweet.  The lemons incredible with the scent and they too are sweeter than what you get in the store.  She said once one of the fruits is done then it will spout limes.  It did look like lemons were the dominate fruit on her tree.  Thanks for the fruit my dear Mara.maras-tree-second
