Great Fruit
The tree came in excellent condition! Nothing was tossed or broken and after one night the tree stretched out. I ordered the 2-3 foot one and got suit the first year. I was skeptical because there were no reviews but the fruit is delicious! It has the bright happy pink flesh of a blood orange with a sweet tangy taste like a strawberry. it's delicious, I ate them as a snack and baked with them. Overall it was definitely a great choice!

Nice plant but a little bug problem
Beautiful tree huge bug problem. Came with nice beatifull leaves that had a few bug holes in them. I assumed because bugs had eaten the leaves that they had shipped with the plant.sure enough the before I removed the plant from the plastic bag it came in I could see lots of little bugs and larve crawling around and once I removed the plant I saw a huge catipillar looking worm (probably what ate the leaves) by the roots. This is my 7th plant from FGT. They are a really good company which is why I keep ordering but this particular order wasn't the best.if I was planting this outside the bugs wouldn't matter as much but because this is going inside my apartment it kind of irks me. I'm not saying they should check every plant for bugs but in cases like this where there are huge holes on different parts of the leaf I think a quick check before packing would have at least caught the huge worm. None of my other 6 plants had bugs so so far still an amazing company but this particular order wasn't the best

First Timer
I bought this tree late summer and transplanted it to a larger pot in the fall. Currently sitting inside near a sunny location. Although losing some of the bottom leaves the top ones look healthy. I will await to see what progress I have this year. Although I can plant it outside here in Eastern Carolina I might transplant it to a large pot and grow on my deck and bring in over the winter. I will update on it's progress,

Planting & Care



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



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cara Cara 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 Cara Cara 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 Cara Cara Orange Tree again after the transplant is complete.

I enjoy the great taste of this orange - better than others that are readily available in the grocery so I thought I'd give growing it a try. I have had excellent success growing potted citrus trees and they are easy to care for so why not add an orange

If this grows 8-12 feet, how can you grow it indoors when most ceilings are 8-9 ft?
Suzette C on Sep 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From what I understand, that height is for trees growing in the ground. Growing it in a container will automatically limit the size of the tree. You can also prune if necessary, but only as little as possible to not reduce fruit production.

jeff q on Sep 19, 2016
