Citrus sinensis – Oranges and Clementines
Great, evergreen trees that produce in the winter months, Citrus trees are some of the easiest fruit trees to grow in your own garden. Ornamental yet productive, having handsome, shiny green leaves and fragrant flowers, they add wonderful scent and flavour to cooking and your home. Sunshine, quick-draining soil, airflow, infrequent deep watering and seasonal feeding are the keys to citrus success. In cold climates, plant the tree in spring, when the soil has warmed up.
- Navel Orange Washington – A semi-upright, medium speed grower that produces medium to large oranges in late May to mid-June. Deep orange skin colour and a rich, sweet taste, these trees bear a lot of fruit if cared for correctly.
