Dwarf Washington Navel Orange Tree

Dwarf Washington Navel Orange Tree

In: ,

It’s not surprising that the Dwarf Washington Navel Orange Tree is Hawaii’s most popular variety. The diminutive tree produces a full-sized, sweet, and seedless fruit, making it the perfect choice for eating and juicing. The tree grows no taller than eight feet, with sweet-scented flowers in springtime and glossy, green foliage year round. It does equally well when planted directly in the ground or in a container.

Growing Tips*

  • Grows best with maximum sun exposure, in well-draining soil.
  • Amend the soil before planting with organic compost or composted livestock manure. Trees grow best in soil with a pH level of 6 – 7.
  • Water regularly to keep soil moist. Don’t let the soil dry out, but don’t over water.
  • Fertilize at planting and every eight to 12 weeks with a nitrogen-rich fertilizer for the first year or two.
  • Use Integrated Pest Management to identify pests and reduce damage.

For a delicious, vitamin-packed beverage, leave the peel on when juicing the fruit of your Dwarf Washington Navel Orange Tree.
