Flavorful - Juicy Oranges

- Unique Color and Flavor
- Numerous Health Benefits
- Cold Hardy: Low Maintenance

Crimson Orange Bursts with Flavor
These Blood Oranges are different than most oranges when it comes to appearance and taste. Thought to be a hybrid between a tangerine and a pomelo, they have a distinct red colored flesh. That's not the only thing that sets them apart from other oranges; they're also exceptionally juicy with a flavor similar to a raspberry.  Chefs and bakers prefer them for making marmalade and salad dressings.  They're also chosen when a dish calls for zest.

Packed with Vitamins
If you have trouble getting in your recommended daily intake of vitamins, then this tree will be a delicious way to remember to do so.  You'll look forward to peeling back the rind to enjoy a snack that's also doing the body good! They have a significantly large amount of anti-oxidants due to their pigmentation; and are a great source of thiamine, folate, calcium and Vitamin C.  That's not all!  Just one Blood Orange can provide 28% of the recommended fiber consumption.


Grow them Anywhere
They put on a beautiful show of blossoms each spring!  Florida and California residents aren't the only ones who can successfully grow and enjoy these Blood Orange trees.  They're cold hardy, meaning they can withstand cold temperatures down to 20°.  If you live in Zones 4-11. we recommend you grow them in a container so that you can bring them indoors when the temperatures drop.  You'll love them inside just as much - for they have a strong citrus fragrance that can literally permeate your entire home with a fresh scent.

Blood Orange Tree Pollination

Blood Orange Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Blood Orange Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Droopy and little upon arrival, much the same a year later.
This poor little guy has struggled since it was in the box. Had for a year now and very little growth. Just reported with better drainage and some root stimulator and hoping it will improve. It has been getting the same treatment as my Mexican lime which is gorgeous bit just has never done well. A satsuma I just ordered arrived in MUCH better shape.

Great tree. Very healthy. Came with oranges.
It came very well packaged and had 2 oranges on it at delivery. We figured the shock would probably drop off the oranges, but it didn’t. A couple months later and it has a ton of new growth and the oranges are still going strong.

Planting & Care



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


Blood Orange Tree Planting Diretions

The Blood Orange (Citrus sinesis 'Moro') is an easy to grow, delicious, healthy orange named for its blood-like appearance when cut open. Blood oranges are among some of the sweetest, healthiest citrus to date and their blooms will fill your yard with a heavenly aroma that will stop passersbys in their tracks as they pass. This full sun loving, moderate grower is most commonly planted outdoors in USDA growing zones 8-11 but are also appreciated for being successfully container grown in colder areas of the country. They fully mature to a height/width of 8-12 feet tall which classifies them as a semi-dwarf so some periodic repotting may be necessary but totally worth it for some of the tastiest oranges available on the market.

Seasonal Information: Blood Orange trees will do best in warmer climates as it is classified as a tropical plant. Zones 8 to 11 are ideal for outdoor planting. However, if you do experience cold winters, plant your Blood Orange tree in a container and bring it inside for the fall and winter seasons. We recommend planting in Spring through Fall for outdoors since they are sensitive to colder temperatures.

Selecting a location: Choose a location where your tree is going to get plenty of sunlight, 6-8 hours per day is best. They can tolerate some shade, but thrive in full sun. You'll want to ensure trees are spaced 8-10 feet apart if planting more than one. These trees also do better in areas with high humidity so you may also need to create humidity for your tree by misting the leaves daily with water. Potted plants do enjoy a daily misting for humidity but placing a tray with rocks filled with water under the plant will feed humidity to the tree as the water evaporates.

Planting Directions (in Ground): If you are located in zones 8-11 and your winter temperatures stay consistently warm, your Blood Orange will do well being planting outside in the ground. Be sure the area has well draining soil.

1) Dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system.
2) Place the tree in the hole and back fill it with your sandy, well-draining, acidic soil. If you have clay soil, try amending it with sand, stone, perlite or fine potting soil.
3) Tamp the soil down as you back fill the hole to cut back on any pockets from forming.
4) After planting, be sure to give your Blood Orange tree a deep watering for about 5 minutes. Mulching around the tree will help insulate the roots and keep your plant warm in the colder winter months as well.

Planting Instructions (potted): If your winter temperatures are consistently below 40 degrees, plant your tree in a container that can easily be brought outside in the summer months and inside in the winter. A planter with built-in casters is a good choice so it can easily be moved. Choose a pot slightly larger than what it was shipped in that has plenty of holes in the bottom to allow for drainage. Be sure to plant in well-draining potting soil preferably recommended for acid loving citrus plants.

1) Fill your pot halfway with soil. Remove the tree from its original pot and gently place in the potting soil.
2) Fill in around the tree with the remainder of the potting soil but be sure not to cover the grafted area of the tree. Leave about an inch from the soil surface to the rim of the pot for easy watering.
3) Lightly pack down the soil. Immediately after planting, give your tree a deep watering until it flows from the holes in the bottom of the pot.
4) Place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight. Supplement with a grow light if it will not receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day. You may also need to create humidity for your tree by placing the pot on a saucer of pebbles or misting the leaves daily with water.

Watering: Blood Oranges do not like wet feet. Be sure to give your tree a deep watering so that it can penetrate into the root system. After watering, allow the top 2-3 inches of the soil to dry out completely before watering again. Yellowing and droopy leaves is a common sign of over watering while brown, dry leaves are a sign of under watering. Mulching can help retain the soil moisture and also combat competing grasses/weeds.

For potted Blood Oranges, stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If there is moisture present, hold off on watering until it feels more dry at that depth. When ready to water, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.

Pollination assistance: You can pollinate your indoor trees by hand since most people do not keep a healthy bee population within their home. Simply take a small, dry, fine tipped paint brush and stick it into the center of the bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated. Do this once daily and don’t wash the paintbrush until after the blooms have been pollinated. The bloom will fall off naturally and the fruit will begin to form.

Fertilization: Feed your Blood Orange tree during the warmer spring and summer seasons with a citrus specific fertilizer once every six weeks. Espoma Citrus Tone is highly recommended but any organic fertilizer specifically for citrus should suffice. This will help keep your tree on a healthy growth cycle but also replenish the nutrients in the soil. During the fall and winter season, ease back to fertilizing once every 2-3 months. Once the tree has matured a bit and has got a few years on it, you can skip the cold season fertilization. The same fertilizing regimen should be followed for potted Blood Orange trees as well. Make sure to follow the application instructions written on the fertilizer bag.

Pruning: Pruning can be done at any time of the year for in ground planted Blood Oranges except in the winter. Make 45-degree angle cuts to remove dead or crossing limbs and also to thin out the tree to allow more light to flow between the branches. “Leggy” looking branches may indicate that there is not enough light getting to the tree’s interior. After the tree fruits, remove any dead wood and ventilate the center of the tree. Remove suckers as they form/grow from the base as they will steal away nutrients from the primary trunk of the tree. Pruning can be done at any time of the year for the potted Blood Orange.

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.

BEST ANSWER: Grafted... mine arrived in a box and had a few pieces on it the first year... not sure what this really cold winter is gonna do to it but hopefully it survives
Do you know if the oranges are sweet?
Cathy L on Feb 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are not as sweet as a navel orange or a tangerine. But as they ripen, they do get sweeter. It's not exactly a tart flavor either, even if they are a little green. They are one of my favorite orange varietal.

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.
Can this tree be kept entirely indoors? Are there any special considerations for doing so?
Trev H on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Place your tree in an area of your home, preferably a south-facing window, where it is going to get plenty of sunlight. Supplement with a grow light if it will not receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day. You may also need to create humidity for your tree by placing the pot on a saucer of pebbles or misting the leaves daily with water.
Watering: stick your index finger into the soil down to about 2 inches. If there is moisture present, hold off on watering until it feels more dry at that depth. When ready to water, stop once you see it escaping the drainage holes at the base of the pot.

Ulysses Dixon
Ulysses D on Jan 13, 2017
