The orange tree is an evergreen, flowering tree, with an average height of 9-10 m, although some older specimens can reach 15 m. It has oval leaves, which are alternately arranged, and are 4-10 cm long and have crenulate margins.
Depending on the climate, fruits may take 6-8 months to ripen. The best indicator of ripeness is taste. Harvest the fruit by cutting them off with pruning shears or by pulling the fruit stalk from the tree. Undamaged fruit can be stored for several weeks
Seed grown trees often have a short lifespan, as they are susceptible to foot and root rot. If seed grown trees survive, they do not produce fruit until maturity, which can take up to 15 years.
Can be grown indoors or in a greenhouse if you don't live in a warm climate
