Bostonians can only dream of plucking navel oranges or grapefruits from a tree in the backyard. But there is one citrus that may survive here, the trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata). Many Arboretum accessions of this small, spiny Chinese tree have failed, but two plants from a 1979 accession still survive near the Honeysuckle Collection.
