The Olinda Valencia Orange is an orange tree suitable for smaller gardens, and especially for growing in pots. It has a dense, rounded form and does not take up a lot of space. This variety ripens its fruit from March to June, so you will have fruit through spring and summer – just when you will appreciate it most. It is a wonderful variety for juicing, and also for eating fresh, in salads, for baking, or for marmalade. In spring the sweetly-scented white flowers appear while there are ripening oranges on the tree – a beautiful combination effect. This tree is hardier than some other orange varieties, and it can be grown in warmer parts of zone 9. It is also more drought resistant, so it grows well in drier states, like California and Arizona. Because of its small, compact size, this is the number one choice for an orange tree in a pot, if you live in colder places where you need to bring the tree indoors for winter.

  • Juicy oranges ripen in summer
  • Small tree perfect for growing in a pot
  • Fragrant white blossoms
  • Flowers and fruit appear at the same time
  • Easily grown and carries a large harvest

Choose a sunny location in well-drained soil to plant your Olinda Valencia Orange tree outdoors. For planting in a container, choose a large pot with a drainage hole, and preferably use potting soil for citrus trees, as well as a citrus-tree fertilizer. The tree will naturally only grow 10 or 12 feet tall outdoors, and 6 to 8 feet tall in a pot. Do not trim it into a tight ball. Instead, remove a few branches from time to time, to keep the center of the tree open, allowing light to reach the fruit and stimulate ripening, and the formation of flower buds. Trees in pots should be kept indoors in a well-lit place when the outdoor temperatures are below 45 degrees.
