Navel Orange Tree

Delicious Navel Oranges


We Prune Your Tree Throughout Its Life… NOT just when we ship it!

So instead of a tree that resembles a fishing pole, you get one that has well developed branches and is hefty enough to start supporting fruit production.

The heights advertised are generally after we prune your tree one last time, unless otherwise noted. So the height you pay for is what you receive.

Plus we don’t include the pot or root length in our measurements. This can give you an extra 1-2 ft. in height.

Our larger trees can be one to three years older than our smaller ones and should give you fruit the first season.

: 2-3 ft

• Easy to grow 
• Healthy fruit 
• Extremely low maintenance 

Washington Navel Oranges are the most sought after navel oranges because of their low maintenance, sweet fragrance, and amazing health benefits. 

These orange trees don't need much attention... just water them every once in a while and they'll reward you with plenty of juicy, seedless oranges. 

Plant them wherever you get full sun... but the real treat is when you pot them up on your patio. They're easier to grow if you give them a little bit of attention. Then, in the winter time, you can bring them inside... giving you a sweet, citrusy aroma. 

Washington Navel Oranges are also loaded with health benefits. They're packed with Vitamin C, which keeps your immune system strong, and antioxidants, which have anti-aging benefits and even fight off diseases. 

Fresh-picked navel oranges have ten times the flavor of anything you can find at the local supermarket. 

Use them for snacks or orange juice... it's your choice! 

Washington Navel Oranges also have a long shelf life... longer than most oranges. That means you don't have to hurry up and use all your oranges before they go bad. You can store them for months!

It's Easy to Plant your Navel Orange Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Navel 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 Navel 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.

Beautiful Tree.
I purchased this tree in mid spring. I waited til November to write the review so I would have the chance to give a proper review. This tree is a very hardy tree for zone 7. I brought it indoor when the temp started to dip below 55. It has been in the house for about 6 weeks now. And it is flowering in abundance. In addition to the flowering, it also has grown about 4 inches. The smell of the orange flower is unmatched. I highly recommend this tree for anyone in Zone 7.

If you are in the north (michigan) and growing this is a "patio plant" - I assume it has to overwinter indoors? at some point a 8-12ft tall tree indoors wont be possible, then what?
amy l on Jun 24, 2014
Best Answer: Hi from Ann Arbor MI.
Good question! I grew up in So Calif surrounded by orange groves and avocado groves. For Chrostmas 1-½ yrs ago, my wife gave me a young orange tree from, after hearing for 30 years of my life-long love affair with citrus fruits. It's lived inside the 5 coldest months both years, next to French doors facing west, and grows reasonably well there. A 12 oz drink 2x per week keeps it happy. It's shown glorious growth growth during the warm, sunny months when we move it outside the French doors. And we let the rain do all the watering. Foliage has quadrupled since we got it, and it's perhaps 18" taller. We'll start pruning it to keep it at a good size for inside when that becomes necessary. It has had lots of tries with little oranges that fell off, but one 2" dia orange so far hanging on... Holding our breath for that first tasty fruit! Good luck with yours. -tom

when do they bear fruit?
elaine on Jul 24, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, the Eureka lemon typically blooms April-May and then the fruits arrive and ripen in winter time. However if you grow an Eureka lemon as a patio tree in a mild, coastal climate it can bloom and fruit all year long.

are navel orange trees self pollinating?
Bob H on Jun 27, 2015
Best Answer: Like most citrus, the Washington Navel Tree is self-pollinating. Wind and bees will naturally stimulate this when the tree is left outside. You can help your tree pollinate by taking a small brush or cotton swab and spreading pollen from one flower to another. Washington Navel Oranges are ripe for picking 7 to 12 months after flowering.

I got my tree last year... it's a house tree because I'm in Canada!! It would blossom and smell beautiful, then grow it's little oranges... but they would soon fall off, while penny or nickle size. That cycle happened about 3 times, but now my leaves are falling off ... I'm hoping to save it before she's totally bare!! I would mist it often too, thinking that they were meant for wet, humid areas! Any ideas???? Thanks, Janice

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
