Description / Citrus 'Trovita' Orange Tree

Citrus 'Trovita' Orange Tree is a semi-dwarf cultivar that is valued not only for fruit production but also for ornamental purposes and can fit beautifully into an edible landscape. A heavy producer, the tree blooms prolifically in clusters of showy, highly fragrant, waxy white blossoms followed by an abundant crop of juicy, sweet oranges with a thin rind that's easy to peel. Although the tree requires less heat to set fruit than most citrus, the fruit is sweeter in hot climates, and the tree grows well in hot desert heat.

A popular variety, Citrus 'Trovita' Orange Tree, a broadleaf evergreen, has a compact habit of glossy green leaves and a vigorous growth rate. The tree makes an excellent accent or specimen and can be trained as an espalier. But it is also a great houseplant.

In the garden, Citrus 'Trovita' Orange Tree can grow to between 10 and 15 feet tall at full maturity, but the plant can be pruned to maintain any desired size and shape. In cooler climates, the tree can be grown in a container and moved indoors during winter, if ample sunlight is provided. Although a container grown tree will not reach its full growth potential, it will still flower and set full-sized fruits.

A minimal care plant, Citrus 'Trovita' Orange Tree requires at least 8 hours of full sun a day and grows best in deep, evenly moist, well-draining sandy loams that have a slightly acidic pH but is intolerant of heavy, saturated soils. Protect the plant when temperatures fall below 28°F. If container grown, the plant should be brought inside at the first sign of frost and placed in a location with plenty of bright sunshine. It should not be kept too warm, however, because cooler winter temperatures encourage flowering. The tree is self-pollinating and will bear fruit without any pollen from other varieties.

Citrus trees will ship at the appropriate planting time based on your growing zone. Citrus trees do not ship in December or January. Plant height is 18-36" when shipped.
