There are really only a few things that you want in an orange - big size, sweet juice and few seeds. Robertson Sweet Orange Tree (Citrus x sinensisn 'Robertson') checks all of those items off of the list and so much more! The glossy evergreen foliage and divinely fragrant white blossoms are certainly a bonus!
This bestselling Sweet Orange is easy to grow. It performs better than most citrus trees in cooler summer areas. People who grow Robertson Sweet Oranges at home will tell you how satisfying it is to go out and pick a fresh juicy orange straight from your own tree! These juicy gems ripen in late autumn to winter, so there's less wait!
Robertson Sweet Orange is naturally dwarf but grows into a bushy shrub-like tree in no time. The fruit is very prolific and you will be up to your ears in Sweet Oranges once the tree matures. The heaviest crop will be in the winter months, but it produces fruit that hangs on the tree for a long time.
Robertson Sweet Orange is shrubby enough to be used as a hedge for privacy! Plant a hedgerow or shelterbelt with other small citrus for wildlife, screening and seclusion, plus lots of fruit! Otherwise, ‘limb up’ into a tree-form and keep as a specimen and lovely fruiting/flowering evergreen accent that you and your pollinators will enjoy!
If you don't live in a Citrus-friendly locale you don't need to worry, though, as this sweet orange will do just fine in a pot in front of a sunny window. Any growing zone can keep these as tropical poolside exotics and patio tropicals! Northern growers can just bring them indoors or into a greenhouse for the winter.
Orange Trees fruit and flower best in full sun! Provide an open area with good air circulation, in an enriched, slightly acidic environment. Citrus do best with low moisture, allowing them to dry out a bit between waterings, container trees especially!
Your family and friends will love to share your bounty with the abundance of extra fruit you will have, but only if you order your Robertson Sweet Orange Tree today!
