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.
Planted in the ground, the average mature height of a Moro Blood Orange Semi-Dwarf tree is 10-15 ft. tall. The average height of the Standard tree form is 15-20 ft. tall.
Semi-Dwarf vs. Standard citrus trees:
Semi-dwarf citrus trees 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 that is shorter than the Standard tree form.
The mature height and fruit production of your citrus tree depend on several environmental factors such as climate, light, soil type, texture, fertility and moisture, and pruning practices.
