Orange - Blood Orange 250mm Pot

Citrus sinensis

Description of plant at maturity:
Popularity: The Blood Orange is a sweet flavoured orange when ripe, with red coloured flesh. The distinctive flavor resembles a mild Valencia, but is influenced by weather patterns so it can be variable each season.

The Blood Orange produces red coloured flesh that develops best in dry climates. The flavour sweetens as it ripens. Fruit is large with some seeds.

Tree: This tree will only reach 4m in height, but tends to be very thorny.

Main Harvest: The Blood Orange will produce its main crop in Winter.

Best for fresh eating and juicing. Popular for desserts and fresh fruit salads.

Care: Water during the warmer months, especially when fruits are forming. In container water three to four days, more often in hot weather. Do no water the trunk. Fertilise in spring and late summer – early autumn with a fertiliser high in nitrogen, do not allow to touch trunk. Prune in late spring removing inside and weak growth and to shape the tree.

Planting: Add organic matter to the soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remover plant from container and place into the hole so the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in well even if the soil is moist. If planting in containers use a premium potting mix. The container should be a minimum size of approximately 60cm x 60cm.

Watering: Moderate water requirement

Position: Plant in a sunny position with well drained soil and sheltered from strong winds.
