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.
