Naval oranges!

  • Orange trees prefer deep, well-drained soil. These trees do not tolerate heavy or clay-filled soils for extended periods of time

  • Plant the tree in full sun at least 12 feet from the nearest large structure.

  • Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball of the tree and a few inches deeper than the pot containing the tree. Place the tree in the hole and backfill soil onto the roots. Water thoroughly to help bottom roots establish.

  • It usually takes about three years after transplanting for trees to bear any good fruit.
