Moro Blood Oranges are known not only for their unique color, but also for their super-sweet taste.

The Moro Blood Oranges are famous for their distinctive taste- similar to raspberry or strawberry.

You'll also enjoy a wonderful show of blossoms in the spring... they're so fragrant, they can actually fill up your whole yard with a delightful citrus scent.

These orange trees are very cold hardy.

However, if you live up north, we suggest potting them up and placing them on your patio. Once it starts getting cold, you can bring your orange tree inside... adding a citrusy fragrance to your kitchen.

These blood oranges are extremely healthy as a snack, or when you juice them.

These trees are in high demand this time of year, and we only have a limited supply available. Be sure to order yours now before they sell out.

I received my blood orange tree yesterday; it was kind of compacted when I just took it out of the box; after one night sitting in my living room, all leaves and branches stretched out, looks very healthy and happy. The branches are full of new shoots; I ordered 4 - 5 ft and the one I got is slightly over 5 ft from floor to tip. I live in north New Jersey and I ordered it at the coldest season of the year, still the tree looks great. I am happy with the tree so far and I will enter a follow up review after a few months

We ordered this tree and it came in excellent conditions. Because of the cold (zone 7) we have brought it inside the home and it is doing very well. I have two oranges on it but I am not sure if they are going to mature since the tree is no longer outside. The tree is beautiful and it looks great in our living room. Oh and the smell of the flowers is like nothing I have ever smelled...out of this world, just plain awesome

We received our tree in late November. It came in excellent condition to our house in Pa. It is now late January and has many flowers. I can't wait for the fruit

The tree arrived healthy and 48"" (4 ft) from soil line to highest lead. The tree is planted in a 10 gallon plastic pot in rich 'manufactured' soil like you use in garden beds. I was expecting sandy Florida type soil like you find in Orlando for some reason. These are really good oranges, I used to buy them when I lived in Switzerland but I haven't seen them for sale in the U.S. (typical industrial farming) so I hope it has a lot of fruit. The top isn't as 'bushy' as I had hoped but I imagine they prune them like this to grow them taller and also for shipping purposes. The trunk itself is about 3/4"" in diameter, somewhat gnarly (must be a characteristic of this type orange tree the key lime trunk is straight, and sturdy.I plan to buy from Fast-Growing Trees a clementine, ruby red grapefruit (I'd buy the yellow grapefruit if they had them), a Meyer Lemon, and a Calamondin Orange

I have ordered two of these, a 3-4ft and a 4-5ft. In January the smaller tree started to bloom and then almost all of the leaves fell off. The taller tree started loosing it's leaves in March and then started budding here in April. Not sure what caused the leaf drop, but both trees recovered quickly and are now doing great

I received this tree a little over a year ago. It was a bit tricky keeping it inside over the winter but I followed the planting guide here and it made it. Shipping was FGT's usual superb job and it came quickly and in an armored cardboard box, protected perfectly. This summer the tree has flourished, with new leaves and branches. I am hoping for flowers late this fall and fingers crossed for a fruit set or two. Thanks for excellent stock

Nice Tree
My tree arrived delivered from UPS in a scary condition. The box looked like it was air dropped and that the tree would have been broken in half. However it was packed well and the tree survived with only some dirt thrown around and some roots exposed. I have the tree potted and have added some organic fertilizer. I have one orange growing on it. I'm very happy to see that it has fruit even as a small tree and after its tough arrival. I plan to buy more! Happy growing.

Fun Plant to Have
We have had great luck growing citrus in containers and the Blood Orange is no exception. We have had it two years now. It only had two oranges last year, but has about two dozen this year. Not bad for a thirty inch tree. We bring it in as a house plant during the winter and place it on the front porch during the Spring and Summer.

I received my blood orange tree a few days ago it came in great condition. There were no broken branches due to the care FGT took in packaging it. The tree was very healthy and full. I am very pleased with this purchase. Fast shipping and great service.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Blood Orange Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Blood Orange Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Blood Orange Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Blood Orange Tree again after the transplant is complete.

I read in "the land where lemons grow" about the significant health benefits of the blood orange. Also, the way the citrus trees in pots were described made them not seem so intimidating.

We recently visited a family member who had one of these trees in his yard. He said the tree was only about 5 years old. It was already 10-12 feet tall and had an abundance of oranges on it! Our kids loved them so much that we had to have one!

Why aren't my blood oranges red inside this year?
Sooby on Dec 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It could be the temperature, they didn't have cool enough winters to develop the anthocyanins. They need dry hot summers along with almost freezing temperatures at night with high day temperatures. The stress the tree endures forces the tree to develop the anthoycanins that make them red on the inside.
do you need to buy two blood orange trees in order to get fruit?
Beverly H on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Citrus are self fertile so you will only need one, however, they are each more prolific if you have two.
Do you have to buy these trees in pairs for pollination ?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My answer: I don't know why I have purchased a pair of BLOOD ORANGE TREE. The only thing I know for sure that I just love the sweet taste of it. I don't have any experiences in gardening. I just want trying myself if I had a "green thumb" on these fruit trees.
Please advise me should these trees need a pollination?
Thank you.
We have a home in zone 9 would love to plant the tree now (Feb). then we leave for the North in April. If we planted and watered well now, would the tree survive without additional care like us watering until next Oct or Nov?
Renee O on Feb 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: simple drip system,battery powered, can water once a week till you return.
I live in Virginia Beach, VA (zone 8), will the Moro likely survive being ground planted year round?
Dennis F on Jun 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These trees will thrive in a zone 8. If the winter is more harsh than usual you will want to winterize it.
How often citrus tree need watering?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am not a citrus expert by any means but here is what I do with my tree. Citrus like well draining soil and can get root rot if the dirt is kept too wet. When the first inch of the soil is really dry is when I tend to water mine which is on average once a week. If you search online there is a citrus forum that is on gardenweb. They have tons of info. on how to keep your tree happy. :-)
I have a lot of squires in my neighborhood. What kind of protection do you suggest?
Willie J on Jun 9, 2014

what type/how big of pot for blood orange?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hello - As an initial matter, I would NOT recommend this tree. While it did grow fast and bear fruit--the fruit was neither a blood orange or a full orange--whatever the tree had been grafted to took over and the fruit was a hybrid mess. Having said that - if you still intend to make the purchase, the size of the pot you use depends on the size of the tree you purchase. Just make sure you don't use one too small the roots want to have room to grow. There are good directions that come with the tree that will guide you. If you do plant it in too small of a pot initially, you can certainly re-pot once the tree is established and starts to grow. Hope this helps.
How can I make my blood orange tree bloom? .have it for 7 years never give me fruit?
A shopper on Aug 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi. I was asked to respond to your question because I bought a blood orange from this nursery two years ago. This year I have one large marble-sized blood orange on my tree for the first time so I can't say I have had great success either. However, I did fertilize it about once a month all summer long and put it in a very sunny spot in my backyard. For the first time the branches are filling out really nicely with big healthy leaves so I am hopeful that by next year it will bear more fruit.
Is this tree a self-pollinator?
Dennis F on Jun 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, most all citrus are. With that being said they work best and will be more prolific in pairs.
I am considering getting this tree or the Cara Cara orange tree. Which one is better? Or should I get both for them to cross pollinate? I want to get the biggest one but will the smallest ones fruit also or will I have to wait years?
Lindzey on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are self fertile, cross pollination is not needed. it can take 1-2 years for citrus to produce.
Can this tree be planted in a large patio container?
Gail K on Apr 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can plant it in a large container.
How does this tree handle cold. And how cold?
Steven on Apr 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well they can handle a little freezing after they are established, but any freezing temperature can cause a little damage and to much can hurt the tree badly. They can live if temperatures drop into even the low 20's F. but better if it does not have to. If it is going to be freezing put a frost blanket over tree and will help and be less damage to tree. Ideal is temperatures above freezing but if it is going to be in place where it freezes use frost blanket on it, colder the more protection it should have but they can take light freezing temperature with a minimum of damage. But I would always use a freeze blanket at 32 degrees F. and colder and specially if it is about to flower or have any small fruit on them, or large fruit.
can I grow in a pot, zone 10?
Michael D on Nov 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: yes, but make sure you use well drain soil like cactus potting soil
When is the recommended outdoor planting time in zone 8b?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Blood orange trees can be delicate, especially after the shock of delivery. Since zone b is mostly in in the south, It should be warm enough to plant them earlier, perhaps mid or late march. Blood oranges are Citrus trees, and because of that they LOVE water. If you live in a more arid part of the south, make sure to water frequently.
Scratch this question it was sent before reading the zone thanks. I have a lot of squires in my neighborhood. What kind of protection do you suggest?
Willie J on Jun 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If you have a family dog let is our in the yard, dogs scare squirrels away. You can put a tree net or fence up. You can set out squirrel feeders to create another food source to distract them away from your tree. Also you can spray your tree with a mixture of cayenne pepper soup to keep them away.
