Orange - Cara Cara 250mm Pot

Citrus sinensis

Description of plant at maturity:
The Cara cara navel, or red-fleshed navel orange is an early-to-midseason navel orange believed to have developed as a cross between the Washington navel and the Brazilian Bahia navel.

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.
