The heights we list are after we prune your tree.
Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.
We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.
Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.
Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.
• Easy to grow
• Delicious, healthy oranges
• Low maintenance
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.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Blood Orange Tree.
If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
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.
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.
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.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
