Nothing is better than peeling and eating an orange straight from the source. Homeowners all over Southern California are enjoying growing their very own orange trees and the seedless Navel Orange is a favorite. Sometimes called a Washington Navel, these trees are slower growing and considered to be dwarf to semi dwarf sized trees. This makes them perfect for planting anywhere in your landscape and even in containers on patios and even indoors. Recognizable by the navel like bellybutton that will form on the underneath of the fruit, these are a delicious and healthy snack everyone should have in their gardens or landscape.
Navel Orange trees bloom in early spring to late winter, with their abundant citrus aromoa filling the air all around. These blooms will then set and began to turn into little green fruits. After a hanging and ripening period of a few months, the fruit is then ready to harvest in early fall. You know when your fruit is ready when it easily pulls from the tree and is brilliant bright orange color.
