Too late to plant an Oro Blanco grapefruit?

17 years ago

I just moved up to Topanga Canyon where the winters are cooler and summers much hotter than my previous Malibu address. I bought a FourWinds Oro Blanco dwarf grapefuit tree and it's still in it's container. I'm wondering if I should wait until spring to plant it or if now would be ok. The weather up here is still hot (85-95 deg days) and last winter the colder nights were briefly down to 28 degrees...but not frost visible anywhere. I have some full grown citrus, Navel and Valencia that have never been affected by the cold weather as far as I can tell.

But I'm worried that cold weather might harm the Oro Blanco if it's roots are still tender. Any ideas about this?
