Here are some tips on how you can start growing oranges:

Pick the Right Variety in Growing Oranges

There are many varieties of oranges out there and growing oranges to be effective and successful means knowing what variety suits your location or farm. It is known that Washington navel grows well in California while the variety called Valencia is suitable and can grow to its full potential in areas like Arizona, Texas, and Florida. The importance of this knowledge is the secret of harvesting tasty and saleable oranges and of course the easy task of growing them.

Pick Sunny Area in Growing Oranges

Since orange since its transmigration centuries ago to United States is a tropical fruit, the best place where you should grow and plant them is in a sunny area. This citrus fruit needs a lot of sunshine and also the soil beneath it will have a good draining system for water.

Two Points as a Reminder in Growing Oranges

One point wherein you can effectively grow your oranges is by watering the tree 7 to 10 days in midsummer as heat tends to dry the soil it is planted. Then when there is rain, water it less since the rainfall is already nourishing your tree enough for it to bear good fruits.

Second point is the frequency of putting fertilizer to help it grow. According to expert farmers it is much better if you put fertilizer in it every four to six weeks starting from February to August.
