1.5 Year Old Larger Orange Tree in Nursery Pot

How to Get It

Product Overview

Now you, too, can enjoy the incredible taste of fresh oranges picked right from your own tree. Fragrant white flowers bloom in clusters among attractive, glossy, green leaves. Oranges begin to appear in the spring and as they mature they help to provide visual interest. The edible fruit can be peeled and eaten, squeezed for juice, or sliced and enjoyed in beverages, in cooking and as garnishes.
  • 1.5 year old tree is larger and has a more fully developed root system and branches than the tree available in the metal pot with handles
  • Fun and fast-growing trees, children love to watch the fruit mature
  • Self-pollinating, so only 1 tree is needed to produce fruit
  • Prune by pinching back the tips of new growth toward the interior branches, remove any new growth or stems near the soil
  • Orange trees adapt well to container culture and require transplanting to a larger, well-draining container as needed
  • Fruit ripens only when on the tree
  • Harvest when the fruit has reached its full color and is slightly soft when pressure is applied to the rind
  • Prefer sunny location
  • Grows 6 ft. to 8 ft. tall
  • Plant 15 ft. apart
  • Perennial in zones 8-12
  • Growing instructions: orange trees are great indoor and outdoor patio plants, for best results, within 4 to 6 weeks of receiving your tree, transplant it into a larger pot that drains well and is approximately 8 in. to 12 in. in diameter to give the roots room to grow, in the spring move your potted tree outdoors into full sun when the threat of frost is past, bring it back indoors in the fall before the frost season begins, fertilize regularly with high nitrogen formula, 5-3-3 ratio, water thoroughly while letting the surface soil dry between watering, do not overwater, prune by pinching back the tips of new growth toward the interior branches, remove any new growth or stems near the soil

bought one
I bought one last year. A smaller size one. Got 15 to 20 oranges about the size of a little bit bigger than a golf ball But the oranges were not sweet they were sour like a lemon. I let them ripen on the treeand still sour. I hope this years fruit will be better.
