399.00

Description

Orange trees are widely grown in tropical and subtropical climates for their sweet fruit. The fruit of the orange tree can be eaten fresh or processed for its juice or fragrant peel.

Citrus trees grown as ornamental container plants may take up to five years to produce fruit. Container-grown ornamental orange trees are usually the dwarf varieties that grow to a height of 4 to 10 feet. Limited root space has the effect of stunting tree growth even if it is a standard variety.

Citrus trees are damaged at frost temperature but can be grown in wintertime indoors.

Planting And Care

Care and maintenance of the tree to keep it pest-free will bring the rewards of fruit that ripens in the winter. They need pruning each year to maintain an attractive shape. Cut all deadwood and crossing branches. Prune ornamental citrus to open the crown foliage to let in light and air.
