Dwarf Orange Valencia


Citrus Sinensis “Valencia”

Dwarf citrus trees are just like their normal counterparts, except that they have been grafted onto a special rootstock that causes them to remain compact. Valencia Oranges are commonly used as a juicing orange, and are now available as a dwarf variety.  This innovation allows you to grow citrus trees in small spaces, or grow several different varieties where you may only have room for one normal tree.

Valencia Oranges are medium in size, and one of this tree’s best traits is that the fruit will hang on the tree for months, becoming sweeter the longer it is left. The fruit begins to ripen in Winter and goes all the way through to Summer. This plant is evergreen and can produce scented flowers, it grows best in full sun and well drained soil.
