A Steady Supply of Really Juicy Oranges

The Midknight Valencia Orange Tree gives you the perfect amount of oranges during every growing season. Some orange trees are so prolific that you're overwhelmed with the number of fruit you get each year. Midknight Valencia Orange trees have a long growing season that begins in early spring and lasts through late summer. This long season gives you an impressive, steady supply of oranges, without overwhelming you.

Big fruit means less quantity, but more quality. It may seem like the Midknight Valencia produces less fruit than other Valencia trees, but it actually produces bigger, juicier fruit. The yields weigh the same, but Midknight oranges are bigger and fuller than other Valencias. You'll be impressed by the big, juicy pulp of these oranges.

Midknight Oranges are perfect for juicing. These oranges are so juicy, you'll love making fresh-squeezed orange juice from the Midknights you pick from your tree. Imagine how impressed your Sunday brunch guests will be when you serve them the freshest Mimosa's they've ever had.

Winter blossoms bring the smells of summer to the dead of winter. The large, white blossoms of the Midknight Valencia Orange tree produce a cheerful fragrance during winter. While the rest of your garden is dormant, the Midknight Valencia Orange tree will freshen up your landscape with the enticingly sweet smell of orange blossoms.

Even colder states can experience this summery fruit. By planting your tree in a container, you have the option of bringing it inside when the temperature drops. Placing it near a sunny window will be enough to keep your tree thriving through the winter season. The sweet blossoms will fill your home with a fresh, warm fragrance that will be welcome during the cold months.

They're so easy to grow. The Midknight Valencia Orange tree doesn't require a lot of fuss. It responds well to pruning, so you can keep your tree at a manageable height. Of course, pruning isn't necessary, so you're free to just let your tree grow as big as it wants to. There's hardly any upkeep to this great citrus tree.

Midnknight Valencia Oranges are full of nutrition. These oranges have a higher sugar content than other oranges, making them one of the sweetest orange varieties. That doesn't mean they lose any nutrition. These sweet citrus fruits have all of the Vitamin C you need for an entire day, plus they're low in acidity. You can feel great about indulging in this treat.

Your juicy Midnkight Valencia Oranges are waiting for you. These wildly popular trees don't last long. Everyone loves the sweet taste and refreshing juice, so be sure to order your trees today, and start growing your big, juicy oranges as soon as possible.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Midknight Valencia Orange


Midknight Valencia Orange Planting Diretions

Outdoor Planting Instructions: Choose a spot in your yard that receives at least 6 hours of sun every day. Make sure the soil is well-drained and the area is free from grass, which will compete for water and nutrients. Dig a hole in the ground that is twice as wide as the root ball. Place your tree in the hole, with 1 inch of the root ball sticking out from the top of the soil. Water thoroughly after planting. Add a thick layer of mulch around the base of the tree, but keep the mulch 6 inches away from the tree trunk.

 

Container Planting Instructions: Plant your tree in a large barrel such as a whiskey barrel or a 20-gallon pot. Plant in well-draining soil and make sure your container has proper drainage holes. Your tree may become heavy, so adding casters to the bottom of your container can help you transport your tree inside during the winter. Place a layer of rocks on the bottom of your container to aid in drainage, then add your soil and tree, making sure the tree stands vertical and upright. Bring your tree inside when the temperature reaches below 25 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

Watering: You only need to water your tree when the soil is dry. For trees planted in the ground, check the soil at a depth of 5 inches. For container plants, check the soil at a depth of 2 inches. Depending on the humidity in your area, you will likely only need to water your tree once a week. The roots of the orange tree are wide, so be sure to water past the drip line for trees that are planted in the ground.

 

Fertilization: You will need to add a citrus fertilizer to your tree during its harvest. When you begin to see fruit, apply your first round of citrus fertilizer according to package directions for the size of your tree. Add additional doses of fertilizer every month or two during the entire harvest season. You will also need to add a dose of fertilizer twice during the dormant season. As your tree matures, you can increase the time between dosing during the harvest season, and you can skip the dormant fertilization all together.

 

Pruning: It is not recommended that you prune orange trees, expect to remove dead and diseased branches. You can prune your tree to maintain its shape and height, but be sure to do so before the harvest season. If your tree is planted outside, you will need to whitewash any pruned branches to protect them from chill.

 

Pests: When watering your tree, spray the leaves and branches with a hose to knock off any larva or eggs.  If you see any eggs, larva or worms sprayed off, be sure to put them in a sealed trash bag and throw them away to prevent them from re-inhabiting the tree. Keep the area around your tree free from grass and prune off any branches that touch the ground. These measures will prevent ant infestations. You may also spray your tree with insecticidal soap at the beginning of the harvest season. If your tree becomes infested, you will need to use an insect oil to rid the tree of pests and prevent diseases.

Harvesting: Do not use color as an indicator of whether or not your orange is ripe. Instead, learn your tree's habits by occasionally picking fruit to determine how ripe it is. Ripe fruit will be firm and juicy, but not soft or moldy. You can wait for fruit to fall or you can pull the fruit from the branch.

Storage: Once picked, oranges will not continue to ripen. You can store oranges in your pantry for up to a week. However, oranges will also stay fresh in the refrigerator for a month. To freeze oranges for juicing, simply wash them and cut them in half. They will keep in freezer safe containers for up to a year. You can also peel and cut your oranges and freeze them in the same way. You can also use a wet pack method, which involves storing peeled oranges in a container with a 40% sugar-water syrup. This process keeps the oranges very juicy and sweet.
