    Description

    Moro Blood Orange Tree is the most popular blood orange variety for home or commercial use. Medium-sized fruit has a reddish blush to the rind. Deep burgundy flesh is sweet and juicy with berry overtones. An excellent choice for all citrus climates. Self-fertile. Needs heat to sweeten fruit. Harvest fruit in Early Spring. Protect from cold temperatures below 28F.

    Semi-Dwarf vs. Standard citrus trees:
    The difference between a semi-dwarf tree and a standard tree is the mature height. Semi-dwarf citrus trees are smaller and grow to approximately two-thirds the size of a standard tree form. Depending on the position of the lower branches on the trunk, a semi-dwarf citrus can look like a bush with a short trunk, or a tree with a trunk.

    The mature height of a Moro Blood Orange tree based on average growing conditions:
    Semi-Dwarf tree: 10-15 ft. tall.
    Standard tree: 15-20 ft. tall.
    In containers, the Moro Blood Orange tree will be smaller and can easily be pruned to maintain a desired size.

    The mature height and fruit production of your citrus tree will depend on several environmental factors such as climate, light, soil type, texture, fertility and moisture, and pruning practices. Your citrus tree can easily be maintained at a smaller size with annual pruning.

    Plant Care

    Citrus needs full sun, moist soil, and aerated soil. Fast drainage is essential. Water regularly and consistently the first year for deep roots. Reduce frequency after plant is established but water deeply. In spring, feed with a balanced fertilizer in spring and prune erratic growth or shape as desired.
