Moro Blood Orange
Blood Orange Trees need plenty of sunlight...6 to 8 hours per day is best. They can tolerate some shade but thrive in full sun. These trees also do better in areas with high humidity, so we recommend misting the leaves daily. Famous for their distinctive aftertaste, similar to raspberry or strawberry, Blood Orange Trees offer unique, delectable fruit. And since they're easy to grow at home, you can harvest this fruit yourself...no trip to the supermarket required. Especially since the Blood Orange is cold hardy. But if you live in a cooler area, simply pot your Blood Orange Tree up and place it on your patio. Once it gets cold, bring your Blood Orange Tree inside and let the citrus fragrance emanate. If you're container planting, ensure the container you choose has drainage holes and is about twice the width of your plant's shipped container. When you're ready to plant (in the ground or in a container), make a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root system. Place the tree in the hole and backfill it with your well-draining soil. After planting, mulch around the tree to conserve moisture.
