Default Citrus tree care?

For the house we bought a few months back in Mesa, today we went to Greenfields citrus nursery and bought five trees -- a fig, pomegranate, persian lime, minneola tangelo, and blood orange. The nursery owner mentioned that the Persian Lime does require covering if there's a significant freeze. In addition to the new trees, there are already grapefruit and some lemon and lime trees in the yard. We are on SRP irrigation, which is every two or three weeks during the warmer months.

What tips would be useful for caring for these trees?

Thank you so much for this great information. We now have 4 fruit trees and did not have a clue. Glad we did not have them trimmed into big lollypops this summer.

The sites taught me some useful tips, and I originally grew up with citrus in our backyard.

Finally learned what that white paint on the trunks of groomed citrus is for! It's like Coppertone sunscreen for the trunks , which are left vulnerable when the tree is pruned. I thought it was for insects of something.
