If you relish the sweet taste of juicy oranges, add one or more trees to your home landscape. Grow them in the ground in Zones 9 - 11, or keep them in containers.
The natural dwarf, Fukamoto Orange (Citrus sinensis 'Fukamoto') produces plenty of sweet tasting, showy fruit. The attractive, red-orange harvest is ready nearly a month before Washington Navel.
Fukamoto is a great choice for container culture. Whether you use grow bags or pots, Fukamoto is an exciting early bearing variety for the home garden.
Grab your breakfast from your tree on the balcony. Squeeze the juice, or stick one in your lunchbox.
An extremely aromatic rind and thin pith make it easy and enjoyable to peel.
Fukamoto oranges are juicy, sweet and seedless. Savor the naturally high fruit sugar content; content with your healthy choice.
Kids won't even know they are packed with Vitamin C, A, calcium and fiber! They are easily separated into segments for a satisfying snack experience for the weight-conscious.
Another benefit is that Fukamoto oranges have a peel that is rich in oil. Zest the peel for baking; or extract the natural oil for homemade beauty supplies, aromatherapy essential oils and even non-toxic furniture polish.
Whether planted in the ground or grown in a container, a Fukamoto Orange tree becomes an important asset. Even the luscious scent of the white blooms deliver great value.
Go ahead and boost your food security by adding these desirable plants to your Edible Landscape this year, but hurry. We'll run out quickly. Place your order for Fukamoto Orange today.
These beautiful broad-leaved evergreen plants feature a shaggy, lush texture with glossy green leaves. Use them as an enchanting privacy screen planted where you want to block unsightly views or nosy neighbors.
Keep them as small as you'd like with pruning. Container-grown plants will be held smaller naturally.
Or, let them grow to their full height and width. Create a solid hedgerow along your fence line by placing them eight feet apart on center. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next.
During the long season of bloom, the bright white flowers emit a fabulously fresh, floral-citrus aroma. Let their scent decorate your backyard get-togethers with a wonderful added dimension of interest.
If you've never grown fruit before, you may be surprised how exciting it is to watch your harvest develop from flower to finished fruit. Take baby photos of your latest crop and share on your lifestyle blog!
These sun-loving citrus plants need at least six hours of direct sunlight a day. Plant them in well-drained soil that sheds water quickly.
They do like to have a three-inch layer over the root system. Spread the layer out three feet past the canopy and pull it away from the trunk.
Ensure they receive a medium amount of water on a regular basis. Baby your container-grown plants with a regular amount of water during fruit development.
If you live in a cold winter area, move the containers into a cool, well-lit area indoors to protect them from freezing temperatures. Keep container grown plants on the dry side in winter.
They will go through a period of dormancy during winter. You'll love moving them back outside gradually once the nights warm up. Welcome spring and summer!
Prune in late winter to correct shape and reduce size, if desired. Open the interior of the canopy up to sunlight and good air circulation.
Apply organic citrus fertilizer during the growing season, following directions. No need to apply fertilizer to container plants if they spend the winter indoors.
