Flavorful - Juicy Oranges

- 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.

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.

I received my blood orange tree yesterday; it was kind of compacted when I just took it out of the box; after one night sitting in my living room, all leaves and branches stretched out, looks very healthy and happy. The branches are full of new shoots; I ordered 4 - 5 ft and the one I got is slightly over 5 ft from floor to tip. I live in north New Jersey and I ordered it at the coldest season of the year, still the tree looks great. I am happy with the tree so far and I will enter a follow up review after a few months

We ordered this tree and it came in excellent conditions. Because of the cold (zone 7) we have brought it inside the home and it is doing very well. I have two oranges on it but I am not sure if they are going to mature since the tree is no longer outside. The tree is beautiful and it looks great in our living room. Oh and the smell of the flowers is like nothing I have ever smelled...out of this world, just plain awesome

I have ordered two of these, a 3-4ft and a 4-5ft. In January the smaller tree started to bloom and then almost all of the leaves fell off. The taller tree started loosing it's leaves in March and then started budding here in April. Not sure what caused the leaf drop, but both trees recovered quickly and are now doing great

The tree arrived healthy and 48"" (4 ft) from soil line to highest lead. The tree is planted in a 10 gallon plastic pot in rich 'manufactured' soil like you use in garden beds. I was expecting sandy Florida type soil like you find in Orlando for some reason. These are really good oranges, I used to buy them when I lived in Switzerland but I haven't seen them for sale in the U.S. (typical industrial farming) so I hope it has a lot of fruit. The top isn't as 'bushy' as I had hoped but I imagine they prune them like this to grow them taller and also for shipping purposes. The trunk itself is about 3/4"" in diameter, somewhat gnarly (must be a characteristic of this type orange tree the key lime trunk is straight, and sturdy.I plan to buy from Fast-Growing Trees a clementine, ruby red grapefruit (I'd buy the yellow grapefruit if they had them), a Meyer Lemon, and a Calamondin Orange

I received this tree a little over a year ago. It was a bit tricky keeping it inside over the winter but I followed the planting guide here and it made it. Shipping was FGT's usual superb job and it came quickly and in an armored cardboard box, protected perfectly. This summer the tree has flourished, with new leaves and branches. I am hoping for flowers late this fall and fingers crossed for a fruit set or two. Thanks for excellent stock

Nice Tree
My tree arrived delivered from UPS in a scary condition. The box looked like it was air dropped and that the tree would have been broken in half. However it was packed well and the tree survived with only some dirt thrown around and some roots exposed. I have the tree potted and have added some organic fertilizer. I have one orange growing on it. I'm very happy to see that it has fruit even as a small tree and after its tough arrival. I plan to buy more! Happy growing.

Fun Plant to Have
We have had great luck growing citrus in containers and the Blood Orange is no exception. We have had it two years now. It only had two oranges last year, but has about two dozen this year. Not bad for a thirty inch tree. We bring it in as a house plant during the winter and place it on the front porch during the Spring and Summer.

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 it's original pot and gently place it 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 overwatering 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 of 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.

Sam J on Oct 23, 2017
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.
I live in Virginia Beach, VA (zone 8), will the Moro likely survive being ground planted year round?
Dennis F on Jun 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These trees will thrive in a zone 8. If the winter is more harsh than usual you will want to winterize it.
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.
Is this tree a self-pollinator?
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.
I have citrus tree planted outdoor it's about 5 to 6 ft hight ,about 3ft in width the temperature got down to 25 degree or lower , and the leaves withered. Doing the spring will it be okay, for as new leaves and blooming?
Ulysses Dixon
Ulysses D on Jan 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should bounce back if you see new leaves and blooming. You also do the scratch test to make sure its still alive. Scratch at the bottom of the trunk if its green underneath its alive, if its brown unfortunately its dead.
Can this tree be planted in a large patio container?
Gail K on Apr 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can plant it in a large container.
