I'm Filipino and this is a staple in our cuisine. Using lemon and/or vinegar as a substitute doesn't quite get the correct flavor. It's about time I should have one growing in my garden here in the US like we used to have growing up in the Philippines.

I have had an orange tree for 3 yrs and it has never bloomed. I have it in a 24in pot. My tree is good sized and puts out new leaves and branches but never blooms. I put it outside on my porch in the summer and inside by a East window in the winter. What am I doing wrong???
Momma B on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure how long it's been in that pot, but a good general rule for potted citrus trees is: If their roots have reached the inside edges of the pot, they will be encouraged to bloom. If your tree has been in that pot long enough for the roots to reach the edges, you might try to lightly root prune. Not a lot, just enough to disrupt some of the roots near the inside edge of the pot. Another option would be to use a fertilizer that encourages blooming*.

calamodin oranges described as sweet tart but taste tart to me can i adjust the soil to sweeten it ?
jane r on Oct 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We would recommend a soil test for both pH and nutrients before doing any amendments. The soil may be too alkaline, but it may also be missing nitrogen, a nutrient that has a great deal to do with the sweetness of the fruit. Also make sure you are waiting until the fruit is completely ripe; underripe oranges will always be very tart-tasting.
Are these fruit seedless?
Shawna K on Dec 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is virtually seedless - most fruit is seedless, but you may occasionally encounter 2-4 seeds in a fruit.
What size will this grow to?
Peter B on Jul 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This tree can grow to be 6-10' tall and 4-5' wide, but you can keep it as small as you like by pruning.
